Pray for Tomball Free Will Baptist Church in Tomball, Texas

Tomball Free Will Baptist Church was founded in 1942 in Houston Texas. Through the years, God moved to have four churches established from First Free Will Baptist. As the congregation grew, the church relocated three times.

Chuck Lysaker, called to be the pastor in 2021, came to a war-torn church—despite the growth that took place in the past. Of the three moves, their last move, 12 years ago, created a difficult situation as less than half of the members moved to the new location. After the pastor of 46 years retired, the membership began to decline even more. During the tenure of the succeeding pastor, the church split, leaving FFWB with 19 members remaining. 

Since Chuck became the pastor, the church has regained some momentum. The membership is now running 35 to 40. One challenge FFWB faces is that the congregation is mainly senior citizens, with no children.

Join us as we pray for these specific prayer needs:

    • Pastor Chuck Lysaker, as he leads First Free Will Baptist to heal and to work through their difficult past.
    • That the church will continue to move in a God-honoring, healthy direction, gaining more momentum.
    • That God will raise up new workers to help with the ministry of FFWB.
    • The difficulty of a large debt incurred by the church as a result of relocating 12 years ago. Pray that financial provisions will come.
    • Wisdom and guidance in reaching out to the community for younger families and children.
    • Strength, energy, and focus will be given by God’s Spirit to those remaining at FFWB, that they will be unified and work together with one mission and vision.
    • That FFWB will see how God is working globally and join Him through the efforts of Jacob and Hailee Voltz, FWB International Missionaries to Bulgaria.
