The story of DTC Church began in Houston, Texas. Pastor Rudy had just moved into the city with plans of only sticking around for one year before moving on to the east coast. Little did he know that God had a calling on his life and he was about to meet his future wife Annemarie as well. As he likes to say it, “I met the two loves of my life within my first two months in Houston, I met Christ then I met my wife.”
Soon after they were inspired by God to take the same good news they received to those who have yet to hear it. Pastor Rudy returned to the Rio Grande Valley with few resources but a heart full of faith and founded DTC Church. A few months later, motivated to support her future husband in this endeavor of faith, Annemarie joined pastor Rudy to help establish the church.
The journey of DTC Church began with only 7 people meeting in the living room of a home for weekly bible studies. On May 25, 2003, DTC Church held its first Sunday worship service in a ballroom at the Renaissance Casa de Palmas Hotel in downtown McAllen with about twenty people in attendance. Later they moved out of the hotel and into a storefront location then in the summer of 2008 they purchased and renovated the 1201 W. Polk building in Pharr.
Today DTC is thriving church with two locations continuing to fulfill a God given dream – reaching people, changing lives and making a difference that can never be erased.
