From the days of small beginnings, The Potter’s House Family Worship Center has grown to be a diverse charismatic body of believers pursuing the purposes of God. The Potter’s House conducted its first service at the Union Township Hall on July 23, 1986. This began an eight year journey of renting facilities for services. Stories abound over these early years of salvation, healing, and relationships being forged in trials and triumphs.
Property was purchased in 1991 to build a permanent structure. The church was ecstatic over the purchase of the property and anticipated building immediately, but God had another plan. It was still two years before construction would begin. God was building, but it wasn’t a physical structure--it was His people. God was forming faith in the hearts of His church, and when it was time to move forward, He spoke, “Build debt free.” WOW! At this point the church couldn’t even pay off the property yet alone construct a building. But God had spoken and God is true to His word. One year later, the church moved into their new facility debt free and continued to complete sections of the building as finances arrived. God had performed a series of miracles that caused His people to give HIM praise.
With the new permanent facility came a greater identity and opportunities to minister to our community. The outreach to the hungry grew and special gatherings for worship and training started happening. All the while, God continued to add people to His church.
Since the original property purchase and building construction, the church has purchased a duplex which houses the students in Vessels of Honor School of Ministry, and eight additional acres of land, and built two additions to enlarge the facilities.
In 2002, The Potter’s House Family Worship Center established a new strategic alliance with Messenger Fellowship International and in 2005 developed a new purpose statement. These two changes brought a greater clarity of direction. The phrase “Apostolic Center” began to be used within the wider body of Christ. The Apostolic Center would equip and send people forth into their divine purpose. This put a term on what was in the DNA of The Potter’s House for years. The Potter’s House Family Worship Center is called to train people for His purposes.
