  • LEAD PASTOR

    JIM BENTLEY

    Over the years, Jim has served in different positions in ministry - including picking up trash in the church parking lot, Youth Pastor, Worship Pastor, Children's Pastor and Lead Pastor.  His heart's desire is to carry out the Great Commission by reaching people right where they are at, discipling them, and bringing them to a new life in Jesus Christ.  Jim and his wife Karen have three children, have lived in Waco since October of 2014, and look forward to all that God has in store for the future of Family of Faith.


    His favorite movie quote is a reminder of the message that he wants the world to hear.  It is from The Count of Monte Cristo where Mercedes says to Edmond, "I don't know what dark plan lies within you.  Nor do I know by what design we were asked to live without each other these 16 years.  But God has offered us a new beginning."  Edmond responds,  "God, can I never escape Him?" to which Mercedes states, "No. He is in everything. Even a kiss."


    In this same way, Paul, in Acts 17 is speaking to the people of Athens when he says, “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands.  And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything.  Rather, He Himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.... God did this so that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from any one of us.  For in Him we live, and move, and have our being!"

    He ties this in to say that God is so close to each one of us - we just need to seek Him and we will always be able to find Him!


  • VISITATION PASTOR

    HENRY HORTON


    Born in Kentucky, Henry grew up knowing the Lord, as his father was a minister in the Church of the Nazarene and his family traveled around Kentucky, ministering through music at various church events. He spent time in Korea as a part of a military deployment there, and it was during his time there that he was given the opportunity to volunteer with the first American Nazarene missionary to Korea. Honorably discharged in 1962, he later went on to attend Trevecca Nazarene College where he and his wife, Judith, met. They were married the next year, and went on to follow God's calling on Henry's life to be in ministry. He pastored Nazarene churches in Tennessee, Virginia, Florida, and Texas, and retired from full-time ministry 33 years later. He and his wife have 5 sons and 11 grandchildren.
