Our Church Planters
Scott Brooks - The Door Church
In 2011, Scott Brooks felt the Lord stir his heart to plant a church. Unsure of where to begin, Scott found himself in John 9:39. This particular passage eventually led him to his hometown of Coppell, Texas. With the collaboration of The Village and Acts 29, Scott went on to plant The Door Church.
Blake Chilton - Declaration Church
A few years ago, Blake Chilton and his family visited his hometown of Bryan-College Station. During that weekend, God planted a seed, burdening Chilton’s heart for his hometown and the community there. In 2014, after doing a residency through Fellowship Associates, Blake moved home to plant Declaration Church.
Samuel Orrico – ComunidadEs Nova
After moving to the U.S. to complete his theological education, Samuel and his wife, Rebekah, were called back to his hometown of Xalapa, Mexico. With a desire to spread the gospel there, they planted ComunidadEs Nova. Today, Mexico is struggling with political corruption, social unrest and drug wars, but Samuel and Rebekah are confident that Jesus is better.
Clint Patronella – Seven Mile Road Church
In 2012, Clint visited Boston, Massachusetts, for the first time and began to feel a burden for the people there. He is working with Seven Mile Road to plant a church in Waltham, a suburb of Boston. Their vision is to saturate the culture of Boston with the gospel of Jesus Christ, for the glory of God and the good of the city.
Billy Rose - South Dallas Community Church
When Billy became a volunteer mentor with Champions of Hope, it wasn't long before he and his wife, Areia, felt called to move to South Dallas, and soon Billy joined the COH staff. His desire for discipleship and community grew as he led Home Groups in the South Dallas area, and after a few years, God called him to plant South Dallas Community Church.
Rick White - CityView Church
The vision for CityView Church developed in early 2005. Confident that God was calling him to plant a church, Rick White began to explore potential locations in the Metroplex and landed on Fort Worth. Through The Village, Rick launched the church in 2006. Since then, CityView planted a church in downtown Fort Worth called Paradox.
