history

FBC began in the spring of 2004 in the front room of Tim and Jill Klontz’s home. Tim and Jill had both been leading bible studies around their table for many years. She had been teaching the women from the neighborhood and he taught the men the next night. They had also been leading a young married Sunday school class and Jill headed up a large women’s ministry at a previous church. Since Tim had taken a break from preaching full time and building churches, he was enjoying his new role just building churches as a contractor. But the call of God to preach was heavy on his heart, like the apostle Paul wrote in Romans 10:14 “And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?”  
 
The evening Bible Study groups agreed and they committed, one family after another, to serve God with Tim and Jill. FBC officially opened the doors at Hancock Elementary School on August 1, 2004. Six years later on August 1, 2010 Family Bible Church moved into a brand new building. All the start up costs, building fund and continuing expenses have come from within this new church body; just like it says in Ephesians chapter four, “The whole body builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” And oh has God blessed.
