About Us

History of Fallbrook Church

Welcome to our church! We're glad you're here. Our team would love to serve you and help you get connected.
Located in north Houston, Fallbrook Church is led by our Founding and Senior Pastor Michael A. Pender, Sr.
We reach the community one home at a time, while changing the way people see church forever.

Our first public service took place at Gray Elementary School in September 1994, and we went on to worship and fellowship in individual homes, an office space, and a co-leased church until we closed on 6.14 acres of land on Walters Road. We opened our first building, the Auxiliary Building, in late 2001, followed by our second building, the Community Center, in August 2004. On Easter Sunday 2009, we opened our third building, the Worship Center, which provides a 2,500-seat worship center, double gym, bookstore, café and space for meetings and trainings, conferences, classes, camps, sporting events and more. In need of more space for classrooms and activities, we opened our fourth building, the Children and Youth Building, in December 2013. This 3-story, 82,000 square foot facility, offers 30 classrooms, 24 offices, a gym, a full-service kitchen and concession area, an indoor play area and 3 custom-made aquariums.
Our church currently houses a K-12 charter school, and a before-and-after-school program and daycare.
We serve over 10,000 members, and more than 3,500 individuals have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and were baptized.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect when I visit?
Our Sunday services at 8:00 am and 11:00 am are infused with contemporary, traditional, and urban Gospel. Our Sunday services meet in our main Worship Center where we sing songs of praise, pray corporately, spend time greeting one another, and receive the Word of God. When you visit us on the first Sunday of the month, you can expect Holy Communion to be served. All who are believers are invited to participate in this holy sacrament. Communion is also served on the third Wednesday night of every month.
As a visitor, will I have to say anything or be singled out?
You will not be asked to say anything or introduce yourself as a visitor. As our way of welcoming you, we do ask all our First Time Visitors to stand so that we may greet you.
You will be given a guest information card to fill out if you would like more information about our church. If you prefer not to stand though, that is fine, too. We do not want you to do anything that would make you feel uncomfortable.
If I need prayer, will Fallbrook Church pray for me?
If you are in need of prayer, please feel free to come forward at the conclusion of service. Our Discipleship & Prayer team would love to pray for you. You can also submit your prayer requests here through the Prayer Request link. Your request will be forwarded to one of our ministry leaders. 
Will I be asked to give an offering?
As a guest you are welcome, but not expected, to make an offering. The Tithes and Offerings portion of our service is a time of celebration at Fallbrook. Our members are excited to give as part of their commitment to the Lord. 
What about my children or teens?
We have an exciting Children’s Ministry for Birth – 5th Grade known as The Brook Kids. Our little ones (6 weeks to 5 years old) will enjoy interactive games and Bible stories told by our caring staff in Brook Kids Jr, our preschool environment for young children, located on the first floor of our Children and Youth Building. Children (1st through 5th grade) are encouraged to worship with peers in Brook Kids LIVE located on the second floor of our Children and Youth Building. There they will experience a spirit-filled worship services designed just for their age. Teens, grades 6 through 12 are encouraged to join us in the Main Worship Center at our 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. service and Bible Study at the 9:40 a.m. hour. 
Will I have a chance to meet the Pastor?
Pastor Mike looks forward to meeting visitors and spending time with members after each service. He is usually available at the front of the church immediately following service to receive guests and members, as well as speak with those who have questions about the church or the message of the morning. 
We welcome EVERYONE to come and celebrate the resurrected Savior with us. We look forward to meeting you soon!
