Pastor Scott and Kim Beard have lead FountainGate Fellowship since 1992.
FountainGate Fellowship was born out of a small prayer group in the home of Wilma and Thurston Carter in 1967. They met weekly on Thursday evenings to pray, worship, and fellowship around the Word of God and the movement of the Holy Spirit. From 1970 through 1979, they met in the Carter home.
In 1979, a group of about 50 people, purchased and moved into its first facility on N. 21st Street under the pastorate of Wilma Carter. The church continued to grow, and in 1981, Steve Mansfield joined the ministry team as an associate to Wilma and in 1987, Steve took over as Pastor.
It was in late 1991 that Pastor Steve moved to Tennessee and in February of 1992 Pastor Scott Beard and family arrived to pastor FountainGate Fellowship. 75-100 committed believers met Pastor Scott as he began his ministry here. Under his and the elder's leadership, the church grew to the point of moving to their second facility on N. 3rd and Mockingbird. Here the church membership grew beyond 400 and two Sunday services were held to accommodate their growth. In May 2005, with a membership well over 500, the church moved into its current facility at 909 N. Willis.
FountainGate Fellowship is known for being a friend of the Holy Spirit and is a fountainhead of His presence in the community and around the world.
With our passion to see people encounter the Presence of God, be discipled & raised up as Christ-followers, and equipped and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we believe that the Genuine Love of Jesus leads to Radical Change in the life of each person for His Kingdom.
