When a couple moved to Fort Worth and realized a church that taught reformed theology did not exist in their area, they started to pray. Where to attend church? Where to join with other believers? Where to serve in Christ’s name?

Those prayers led to discussions with other couples who also sensed the need for a church rooted in reformed doctrine. From the first visits and first prayers, God led this unlikely group of friends to start a new congregation, Fort Worth Presbyterian Church (FWPC), in 1992 with the approval from the Presbyterian Church in America denomination.

Along with the founding pastor, Rev. Michael C. Sharrett, the members of FWPC began hosting Bible study sessions in their homes. Months later, the voices and prayers of FWPC attendees filled the Marty Leonard Chapel—a facility owned by the Lena Pope Home and rented to the church for services. Eventually, when more space was needed, the church moved its meetings to the Texas Boys’ Choir building not only to access a venue for the main worship service, but also to utilize classroom space for Christian education.

In 1997, the church purchased land at the corner of Oakmont Trail and Hulen Bend Boulevard in hopes of building a permanent meeting space. Six years later, God graciously allowed their vision to reach fruition; the first service was held in the church’s present location in August 2003. Through the hardships and moments of discouragement, God faithfully and compassionately led those four families to work and serve His Church, creating a community of believers that would number in the hundreds ministering in other countries, tackling civic issues, championing the helpless, loving the unlovely, and sending out more church planters.

With the church settled into ministry and functioning more like an established congregation, Rev. Darwin Jordan accepted the senior pastoral position in 2004 and faithfully served in that role until retirement in 2021. Through God’s grace, Fort Worth Presbyterian Church nurtured a joy for loving God and loving people by proclaiming, believing, and living out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Brandon Eggar accepted a call from Fort Worth Presbyterian to become its third senior pastor in Summer 2021.
