Metro Church of God was formally established on July 7th, 1985 with 10 founding families and Rev. T. V. George as the Senior Pastor. Inaugural services were led by Rev. James Smith, the District Superintendent of Church of God, Weatherford TX.
In 1986, we bought our first church building in South Dallas. It was a humble beginning, but God enabled us to worship Him there in spirit and in truth. Even though the building was small, the joy of the Lord was exuberant in that place. There was a call of God upon a few of our young people for his ministry, and thereafter the church began supporting mission works as well as missionaries in India. Our support in India grew through charitable works such as feeding people, buying clothes, and helping start orphanages.
In 1993, through God's provision we acquired a larger facility in Irving, TX. The church’s focus remained missional and the vision to gain souls for the Lord was always foremost. We put our faith in the power of prayer, and gave much importance to fasting and prayer. In one of our fasting meetings, through a prophetic word, God revealed to us that we would build a new church facility, and even provided a description of the property that would house the new building. By faith we acquired 2 ½ acres of land in Farmers Branch.
We then completed the work of the church building in the year of 2004, marking God's time and plan for the completion of this endeavor. The building and facility was further expanded and new sections were added to accommodate the growth.
In 2006, Rev T.V. George retired from his pastoral duties.
In 2007, Rev. Satish Kumar was appointed as the Senior Lead Pastor and has been in the same role since then. Under his leadership and with the assistance of other men and women of God, we continue to pursue the destiny that the Lord has given to Metro Church of God.
