The Killeen Potter's House began in August 1984 in a small storefront building on 4th street in downtown Killeen next to Rickets Bakery. The church grew to about 12 people in about a year. In August 1988, the church began to grow and a new building was found in the 440 plaza. A revival began to stir as the church grew to about 40 people. In July 1989 revival continued as couples and families continued to get saved. A new building was sought as the church moved to Ann Blvd in Harker Heights, TX for added space and accommodations. The church membership jumped to around 100. By February 1992, the church began to outgrow its building and another move was in order. The church bought its first building on Comanche Avenue in Harker Heights. Ten families got together and pledged $1,000 each for the much needed down payment of $10,000 that the bank required. As God continued to add souls, in 1999, the church membership was close to 150 and another building was sought — a large storefront building off of Beeline Road in Harker Heights. Due to Relator financial issues, the church had to move back to the Comanche building in 2000. In June 2001, the church moved back to Killeen with a storefront building, which was formerly a grocery store, on Rancier Avenue with a huge parking lot.
In March of 2003, Cole's Furniture was going out of business due to Mr. Cole retiring. The building was sold to the church after many obstacles were overcome.
Now in this current building, the Potter's House Church serves the community — civilian and military families, has launched 25 baby churches into the harvest field, 2 missionary works into Honduras, 1 missionary work into China, and has two staff evangelists, with an attendance of approximately 250 people.
The Potter's House is a Christian Fellowship Ministries' Church (CFM). CFM, Inc. was founded in 1970 by Pastor Wayman Mitchell. A spiritual fire was launched that is spanning the globe. Now, over 2,300 churches have been planted in over 130 nations of the world with the number growing daily. From that, crusades and conferences sprung up that are touching tens of thousands every year. This church is a product of that vision and is working to see it expanded in the short time that remains before Jesus' return. God has given us a vision for the day we live in. Our message is simple, yet it is the cornerstone of all truth. Jesus Christ is the only hope for man's salvation and that is true with every person in every nation on the globe. In a world full of empty dreams and false promises is a truth which grows stronger every year, and that is Jesus Christ and Him crucified!
In our local church, God has given us a powerful revival of men and we are obeying the command by Jesus in Matthew 28:19 to "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations..." As we have grown as a church, men have grown into leadership roles.
James Rosario has been pastoring the Potter's House Christian Fellowship Church since 2010. After 18 years of pastoral experience carrying from Arizona to Virginia and now to Texas he brings a fresh vision of the gospel to our church and the Killeen community.
I was raised in a Christian home by the grace of God. Backslid at the age of 18 and decided to run my own life only to find out that apart from God I cannot do anything (John 15). After around 8 years of running away from God's will, my life took a turn for the worst and I finally accepted that God was knocking at my heart and recommitted my life to Christ. Around 2 years after that, God also reached my wife Jade as she also made a decision to invite Jesus Christ into her heart. By the grace of God, our marriage was restored from being on the verge of divorce. Now together we have been serving at The Potter's House Christian Church since 2015.

Here at Next Gen Ministries, we understand what it is like to be a kid in a broken world. My name is Brad Manogin. My wife Stephanie and I count it a privilege in partnering with parents in raising the next generation. As for myself, I was raised in a household with no father or mother in my household. I sought for love in the things of the world... drugs, money, alcohol and much more. I found myself broken, but while in my brokenness I met Jesus who is now my Lord Savior! Our goal here is to plant a seed into these kids so that they don’t have to experience the hardships of life that we have.
