In September 2003, a group of residents from Forest Hills and surrounding neighborhoods gathered at a local restaurant to discuss forming a church in Forest Hills. Also in attendance was the Kytka family, who were native New Yorkers temporarily stationed in St. Louis.

The following summer, the Kytka family moved to Forest Hills. Along with a group of people who wanted to be a part of a local expression of the Church at large, they worked towards making Ascension a reality.

Ascension Church launched its first public service in April 2006.
