The first official worship service was held on September 18, 2005 in Whitney, Texas.
The Olive Branch Christian Fellowship is a non-denominational church.
Our small fellowship started with just a handful of believers who were hungry for a fresh
move of the Spirit in Whitney Texas. In 1987 Pastor Ogles had a vision of a great revival
hitting the Lake Whitney area shortly after moving here. He has hung onto that vision for
these many years knowing that one day the Lord would call him to minister in this area.
In 2005 he was approached by members of the community and asked if he would
consider coming and starting a non-denominational church here. After much prayer and
counsel he felt that this was what the Lord wanted and the time was now, thus the church
was formally organized. All the credit for the start up of the fellowship should be given
where due.........to the Lord Jesus Christ, and to him alone for his leadership and
direction. No one else will ever get the glory or credit for our humble beginnings here on
Pick Street. We are currently praying for our community and believing that a true revival
like days of old will be poured out in Central Texas in the soon coming days before the
return of our Lord and Savior to the earth.
June 2011 transition began. Pastor Rick was lead to move The Olive Branch Christian
Fellowship to Waco Texas. Officially on October 2, 2011 the move was completed.
Pastors were installed on that day and took over the fellowship in Whitney renaming it
just "Olive Branch Church". While the main governing body moved to Waco Texas under
the leadership of Pastors Rick and Martha Ogles. We leased a building for the first 2 1/2
yrs in Waco but in June 2014 the good Lord gave us our own building located at the
corner of 11th and Columbus in Waco Texas.
Since we have been in Waco it has been a great time of adventure and growth. Lord has
put together a great team of leadership to help Pastors Rick and Martha. We are calling
the team "The Vision Team". Meet them all below!
