LEAD PASTOR: Michael Dennis
Hello! My name is Michael Dennis. The beautiful woman in the picture is my wife, Holly. We have two children; Kennedy is our oldest and the red head in the picture is Tucker. They are a blast!
I grew up in Irving, TX, and had zero connection to a local church or the name of Jesus. I would hear about Jesus from people on television, and I was confident that the whole story was a scam to take advantage of people.
But, right after high school, I had a friend that kept asking me to explore the life of Jesus, and it changed my life.
I graduated from the University of North Texas with no plans of ending up in ministry as a vocation, but one day I had a friend sit down with me at lunch and say, "If you apply to seminary I will pay for it." I told him that would be a horrible idea, and before I knew it he was sending checks in the mail.
I ended up graduating from Dallas Theological Seminary. I worked on staff with Grace Bible Church in Nacogdoches, TX as a college pastor, and then moved to Austin to help a church get started at the University of Texas.
In 2009, Jesus put a desire in our heart to start a church in north central Austin. We started with 15 people in our living room, and today that church is North Village Church.
