After 10 years of owning and operating a Mayflower Moving Company, Mike and Vicki stepped out and moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma where they prepared for full-time ministry by attending Rhema Bible Training Center. They were ordained under Kenneth Hagin Ministries and are members of Rhema Ministerial Association International.

Launching the church with less than 10 attendees, Faith Family Church has grown in membership and ministries within the church and financially and prayerfully supports ministers and missionaries bringing the Gospel into the world. We are involved with ministry and missionaries on every continent. Our pastors, ministry teams, and youth mission teams have been sent to England, Russia, Philippines, Jamaica, Israel, Venezuela, Honduras, Mexico, Belgium and Finland. Faith Family Church believes in and preaches the message and vision of every believer to fulfill the Great Commission. Jesus' last words and command to us before His ascension was, "Go Ye..."
