Our Story

Started as a living room meeting in April 2005, the hand of God has clearly been on Providence throughout our history.

Our First Building, the old Broken Spoke Saloon in Little Elm.

We began as a church plant of The Village Church with support of the Acts 29 network and the Denton Baptist Association.  Our first pastor, Barry Keldie, left the staff of The Village to blaze the trail of founding a new church.

After meeting in another church and a school, we found a home in our first building, the old Broken Spoke Saloon. God provided funds to redeem this abandoned, burned-out old bar, and we celebrated it as our home in October 2005.

The following years God proved faithful as the church grew, home groups were expanded, and the first elders were installed.

By 2009, we had outgrown our home and began looking for a new building. God again provided the funds to remodel a former Dodge dealership on Preston Road. On Christmas Eve 2009, we celebrated our first service in our current location.

The church prays for Afshin and Meredith Ziafat as we welcome them to the body.

In early 2010, Barry Keldie resigned as Lead Pastor and passed away shortly after. As the church mourned and searched for new lead pastor, new leaders were raised up to become deacons. By God’s grace, the church grew even in the midst of this tough time.

On October 31, 2010 God again proved faithful, calling Afshin Ziafat to become Lead Pastor.

In January 2013, Providence sent Jordan Stone and dozens of families to plant Imago Dei Church in McKinney.

God continues to prove faithful to His church, and we look forward to what He will do next.
