Jenkins Church is the outgrowth of the desire of the Tusculum Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Nashville to establish a mission church. There being a number of Tusculum members living in the Nolensville area at the time of the planning (Spring 1980), it was decided to have services during the summer months of 1980 in the Nolensville community. At the end of the summer, the decision was made to continue to minister to the families who had begun to participate in the activities of the Nolensville group. Reverend Ronnie Pittinger, Tusculum pastor, led the group.
As the group grew, a pastor, Reverend Dwight D. Wagner, was called. Almost ten acres of land was given by the Jenkins family. Soon plans were made to construct a building. The first building, consisting of a gym, office space and classrooms, was constructed in 1985 under the pastorate of Reverend Allie D. Rudolph. A manse was purchased in October 1987 at 410 Ramblewood Lane in Nolensville. The current sanctuary was built and dedicated in August 1996, and in 1999, an education wing was completed.
