Our Story

Our Journey...

The Brook Church began on Sunday, January 22, 1995 in the living room of Pastor Mike and his wife Tammy. Along with four other couples, the dream was to establish a church of authentic faith and life-giving relationships in Christ. Based upon Acts 2:42-47, the statement “real people, finding real hope, in the real world” captured the vision this small group felt for the church.

In October 2020, Pastor Mike Ayers transitioned from The Brook staff and the Elders began the Pastor Search Process. The Elders and the Pastor Search Team conducted interviews and reviewed candidates, resulting in the nomination of Pastor Jim Botts for Lead Pastor. The Brook Church held a vote for the nomination Sunday, May 16th.

In May 2021, Pastor Jim Botts was confirmed as the next Lead Pastor of The Brook Church. 25 years later The Brook Church continues to live out and explore the vision of being real people, finding real hope, in this real world.


Our vision for the next two years is to present the gospel UNHINDERED and move forward as a church in faith and freedom.

As we step into an exciting new chapter of our story, we do so with unified vision and purpose. UNHINDERED is the title of our two-year discipleship and ministry initiative that allows us to Expand our Reach, Deepen our Connections, and Depend on Christ.
