Waco Area Pastor Council ready to launch!

Pastor Ronnie Holmes of Church of the Open Door in Waco and longtime member of the Texas Pastor Council Executive Council, convened a gathering of key Waco pastors on Tuesday, June 1 toward the official launch of a Waco Area Pastor Council.  TXPC President Dave Welch met with the group that included Senior Pastors Ramiro Pena, Mario Sandoval, David Arnett, C.J. Oliver, Charles Bledsoe and Pastor Holmes.

In the light of formerly Christian college Baylor’s decision to adopt an LGBTQ-friendly resolution and its major influence in the Waco area as well as other critical issues, these pastors determined it was time to get better organized in the model of the original Houston Area Pastor Council.  This initial team, which will form the nucleus of the WAPC Executive Council, represents the “every color, every corner” creed of the Pastor Council model and is now reaching out to enlist other pastors.

Waco joins a growing number of Texas cities with pastors coming together with the mission of restoring godly citizenship as a ministry of our churches as well as to shaping culture and governance from the community up.  Please pray for this new team and those interested in becoming part as pastors or supporting this work can contact TXPC at 832-688-9166 or contact us by email at
