Faith Church is multi-cultural, multi-gen, faith-based church located in Houston Texas. We would love to meet you in person.
Our church "framily" is diverse in many ways. Collectively, through our relationships with one another and with God, we fortify one another and become stronger in ways that positively impact our individual families and all those we encounter in life.
We recognize God has a specific plan and purpose for your life. Deciding to grow in your relationship with God unleashes this plan and purpose. Choosing to live life together with Jesus as the core focus of our shared story brings about deep-rooted life change.
You are our story. Each new chapter of our church story is written by the men, women, and children who come to Faith for God to script the unwritten pages of life. Your place in creating our church story becomes irreplaceable. We invite you to begin writing the next chapter.
Faith Church: The Early Years
Our roots as a church have grown h4 deep in Northwest Houston for over fifty years. In 1963, a small congregation from The Heights purchased the former White Oak Baptist Church at 2800 Mangum Road. Two years later in 1965, Reverend John C. Minor who had served as the Senior Pastor of Heights Assembly for many years, was convinced to come out of retirement to serve as Senior Pastor of Faith Assembly of God.
Passing the Leadership Mantle
During his three years of leadership, in 1968, Pastor Minor recruited his daughter and son and law—Reverend Happy & Jonnie Darneal—to return to Houston from Corpus Christi where they were serving in ministry. Under the pastoral leadership of Pastor Happy & Jonnie, the church experienced unprecedented growth.
Growing into a New Campus
To accommodate church growth, Faith purchased 10 undeveloped acres and built the Faith Assembly of God Worship & Learning Center at the current location, 7755 Fairbanks N Houston Rd. Since 1982, Faith has met on this campus. Numerous families have raised children, many have been married, and others have launched into ministry from Faith during this season.
In September 2006, during the thirty-eighth year of his pastoral ministry at Faith, Pastor Happy graduated into the presence of the Lord. Pastor Jason Taylor, who grew up at Faith under the ministry of Pastor Happy, stepped into the pulpit as lead pastor in November 2006. Pastor Jason led Faith Assembly Church for 10 years prior to answering a call to church plant in the suburbs of Oklahoma where his wife's family has served in ministry for nearly four decades.
A Rich Future
On June 25, 2017, Faith affirmed Nathan Rouse as lead pastor. Stepping into this role with a humble heart, Dr. Rouse has a keen focus on the future God is calling the church towards and believes wholeheartedly in investing in people. On March 1, 2019 we launched our FaithFWD Renovation Campaign and officially changed our name to Faith Church. Renovations are nearing completion. As we embark on this new journey together, we invite you to be part.
