In 1982, Terry and Susan Moore were blessed with a life-changing encounter with the Holy Spirit at a James Robison meeting. As a result, they began a home meeting in March 1983, which grew into Sojourn Church in 1987.
Motivated by a desire to worship God, to share the truth of His Word and to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit, Terry and Susan opened their home to introduce others to the awesome, life-changing love of the Father. This is still their heart today.
Our small group had no intention of becoming an “official” church, but God had other plans. Terry left the business world at the end of 1986 to become the full-time pastor of the group. We knew that God wanted our church in this geographical area and found a place to meet on Sojourn Drive in Carrollton in the North Dallas area.
After moving and expanding a couple of times, the church acquired the property now occupied and built the existing building in 1997.
God’s faithfulness has allowed our church to minister to the people in our neighborhood, the city of Dallas and even to the nations. We have been involved in and helped sponsor the March for Jesus in Dallas, Catch the Fire conferences and various other meetings to advance His Kingdom in the Metroplex. Hundreds of Sojourn members have gone on short-term mission trips, and some have even moved to the mission field.
In 1995 we helped give birth to Trinity Church Dallas, which meets in the area just north of downtown Dallas. In 2001, we planted a second church, Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in the Prosper area of Collin County. In 2010, a third church was planted, Hope Fellowship of North Texas in the Carrollton area.
We continue to be amazed at the opportunities that are continually before us. The Lord is truly good and He orders our steps.
We can truly say that God is Faithful.
