Here’s the deal, Faith Fellowship cares about one thing more than anything else: Jesus Christ. Faith Fellowship is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.
What’s the bottom line? Faith Fellowship is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.

Pastor Bill Villapiano was raised in Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 13 his family moved to Houston, MO where he graduated from high school in 1975. That same year at Bethel Chapel, a small rural church, he gave his heart to Christ. Pastor Bill married his high school sweetheart, June Emfinger, the following March. They have now enjoyed over 45 years of marriage together with 4 children and 7 grandchildren. After attending and graduating from Bible School in 1982, he returned to Houston and became pastor of Faith Fellowship in March of 1984. At that time Faith Fellowship was a small store front church and now 37 years later, he is still pastoring his first church. While for many pastors their first church or a rural church is a stepping stone to their future, for Pastor Bill it has been his life’s calling. Pastor Bill says “rural America is the salt of the earth. They are the people who hold to time honored values, work hard, win wars and keep the faith.”
Today, along with his pastoral duties Pastor Bill is a member of the Houston Ministerial Alliance and serves as a Regional Director for AFCM (Association of Faith Churches and Ministers). He has also had the privilege of working as a consultant and speaker for Focus on the Family, helping churches and pastors develop a strategy for nurturing faith in the home.
We are proud members of The Association of Faith Churches and Ministries (AFCM), an organization that promotes fellowship among ministers who share the vision of taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. Pastor Bill is a regional leader in AFCM. He coaches and instructs other churches to operate with excellence and reach their communities.
Although our approach is modern, what we believe is tried and true. Our methods may change, but these are the foundational beliefs we’ll always hold on to as a church.
