About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

Family Church cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. Family Church is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.

Where we come from

Family Church was started in 2001 by our founding pastor, JR Ruiz and his family. Back then, Pastor JR imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. FC hosted its first gathering on Easter Sunday 2001.

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, Family Church is committed to reaching people and building lives through the love of Jesus. As we move forward under the vision of Matt McDonald current lead pastor, belonging remains at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.

What this means for you
