Almost 20 years ago, Dr. Chris and Courtney Foster followed Reverend Jeff Morris as the lead pastors of Family Life Church. Implementing a vision of Winning people to Jesus, Building up leaders and families, and Sending people into their communities to fulfill the created purpose of God for their lives, the Fosters saw unprecedented growth at FLC.
Led by Pastors Joshua and Allison Walker, our FLC teams continue that vision today. Family Life Church is a multicultural church striving to love well within our community and around the globe. In years past, we’ve built churches on four different continents. We have three churches in Kenya, one in India, two in Ecuador, one in Patagonia, a partner church in Puerto Rico, and a girls’ home in Ecuador that rescues young ladies from human trafficking.
Many years ago, Dr. Foster’s mother came to church on a bus just like this one. When he and Courtney began to minister at FLC, God birthed a vision for serving the children of our community and their families through a bus just like the one his mom rode.
Pastor Johnny Ward and his wife, Janet, continue this ministry every other weekend, bringing in children, and serving their families. As God continues to bless these efforts, additional buses and teams will be added to serve our community and our county in ways that were previously only dreams and ideas whispered in prayer.
The last two decades built the foundation. The decades to come will fulfill the dream of sharing God’s love throughout our nation and around the world!
This 41 year old bus has seen some amazing journeys! After nearly two decades of ministry use, the Purple Bus will be retired shortly as a new-to-us Purple Bus hits the road and continues our community ministry to families and children through the FLC Kids Mentorship Team.
