How It All Began


On a mission trip in the early 1990’s, Dennis and Denise Capra felt like God was giving them a new assignment. A revelation of God’s grace as it was revealed to the apostle Paul burned in their hearts, and they knew that God was calling them to be somehow involved with missions. For the next two years, they sought God’s mind and His specific direction. Finally, they knew that God had called them to pastor a church and train leaders. This calling was confirmed with a series of supernatural happenings.


So, in March of 1994, Faith Ministries Community Church began meeting in a local junior high school on Saturday nights. Shortly there after, more intense leadership training began with the implementation of Andrew Wommack’s correspondence Bible college and FMCC’s own practical ministry labs.


Over the next six years, FMCC moved from that junior high cafeteria to a Super 8 Motel banquet room, a remodeled office space, and finally its own current ministry training center. Through it all, God has been faithful to bring together people from many different nations, ethnic groups, and walks of life to help build FMCC into the church it is today.


Looking back on more than 20 years of ministry, God’s calling to train and lead teams to other nations has developed in an awesome way. FMCC truly is a church that supports missions through training, financial support, and short-term mission trip opportunities. It is exciting to see what God spoke over FMCC come true: “This church will touch this city, but the strength of this church will be the nations."
