In December of 1998 God put a vision in the heart of Terry Darnell and his wife, Tracy, to plant a church in the Sugar Land Area. After much praying and fasting, they moved their family to Sugar Land in May of 1999 ready and eager to watch the Lord fulfill this vision. On June 13, 1999 Family Life held its first church service in their home with an attendance of 27 people. It was exciting to watch God work, since there had been only one couple committed to the church when the Darnells moved to Sugar Land. After one month of services in their home, the church had to rent a building due to space limitations.

Since that time, God has continued to bring growth, both numerically and spiritually to Family Life. The church was able to purchase 10 acres of land and build their first building in September 2006. In the summer of 2015 Family Life completed construction on a new worship facility that will allow Family Life continued growth for years to come!
