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. The
Lord has put together a great team of leadership to help Pastors Rick and Martha. We
are calling the team "The Vision Team".
