Renovation Church was started in Rick and Gloria Cobb’s living room through prayer and seeking of God’s direction by several people wanting to start a church, who were just ready to serve in new ways. The first time we prayed together was in June 2016. Our first gathering was October 2016 in an airplane hangar behind 367 West Cougar Lane, China Spring, TX. We moved to temporary location at 7858 Highway 6 that Pastor Larry Cathey, from Freedom of God Ministries, allowed us to use. Now, by the power of God, we purchased a building at 4900 Sanger, Waco, TX 76710.
As we met, and continue to meet, we seek direction from God, open to his leading, ready to adapt and adjust, how and where we are being led. Which has recently happened. We sold our building to Hope and Believe, who is allowing us to continue to use the building at no cost to us. With the financial boost, we have begun implementing actions to help us grow into the church God is calling us to be. We have located a facility only .2 of a mile from our present location with plans to move there as soon as possible, 4809 W Waco Dr, Waco, TX 76710.
We want to be a church where all people are welcome and able to belong, be empowered, find meaning and purpose. We know we want to be a church where relationships, ministry and mission dictate and define our budget, facilities and processes. Loving God and loving ALL people is our driving force.
