It was in the year of 1993 that a Man of God was called and ask if he would come and pastor this church, The Church on Fire, aka New Hope Worship Center. He then packed up his wife and two children and moved from Dallas TX suburb to here, Ft Wayne, IN.
While here Pastor Bower involved the church in various ministries. Outreach, Home Bible Studies, visitation, and a host of other ministries.
The main emphasizes was reaching the lost. The ones who did not know the Lord. The ones who didn't fit in society. The ones that nobody wanted. Those were (and are) the ones he taught everyone to reach.
He pastored 15 years here at TCOF until the Lord moved to other areas of ministries including Russia for a period of time.
