OpenDoor Church began in 1995 as a food outreach to the poor. As we demonstrated the heart of Jesus in feeding the hungry, we saw many surrender their hearts to the Lord. We quickly realized the need to provide a place to disciple the people we were reaching out to. OpenDoor Church was born.
In June 2013, Pastor Gloria Gillespie of Lighthouse Church retired. In a move of the Holy Spirit, she entrusted her church building and it’s people to us. In one amazing God moment, OpenDoor inherited a whole new congregation along with a wonderful facility that seats 1,000 people. We are thankful for the legacy of Lighthouse and the groundwork that was laid for the work the Lord wants to do today.
Still in the business of feeding people, OpenDoor Foodbank gives away well over two million pounds of food every year to the hurting in North Texas and beyond. It is OpenDoor’s largest outreach.
