FBC-Tomball History and Vision

FBC-Tomball was first organized in 1909 and met under a brush arbor at Main & Walnut Streets. Over the years, the church grew and newer worship centers were built and dedicated to the Lord in 1921, 1949, and again in 1986 on Houston and Oxford Streets in the Old Town area of Tomball.

Now in 2023, FBCT again is being led to develop modern worship center and classroom facilities on the new Parkway Campus property which was purchased back in 2003 for this very purpose of relocating our entire campus.

History21423

Situated strategically just north of the "Four Corners" intersection along SH-249 Business and between Quinn, Rudel, and Hicks Streets, we plan to build facilities that will represent Christ's Kingdom on the 32 acres of undeveloped land previously purchased.

While we are enthusiastic about the future and what God will do for our churchbody, we are also building with the community in mind. We have already built a multi-functional pavilion, restroom facilities and parking for a variety of church and community activities as our initial footprint on this new campus.

Early Planning

Architectural and civil engineering planning has been underway for several years to develop a master plan on the campus with building locations, parking and driveway access, and phased development of the facilities. 

Presently, an initial structure (Phase 1) is planned that will include a new worship center with large lobby and a classroom wing for children, youth, and adults, along with parking and driveway entrance from Quinn Rd adjacent to the existing pavilion.

As a part of the encompassing master plan, future space is available and laid out for a larger worship center and expanded facilities for all age groups and ministries, along with parking and additional driveway entrances, including from the Tomball Parkway (SH-249B).

This initial phase of architectural & engineering study conducted in 2022 with Merriman-Holt-Powell Architects (MHPA) culminated with an interactive Townhall congregational meeting in August 2022 in which the master plan was presented for Q&A along with a project timeline and realistic cost estimate for Phase 1, based on collaborative work with our general contractor, Paradigm Construction.

Phase 1 Details

With the full master plan developed in 2022, design work was then focused during 2023 on the details for Phase 1 of construction. In conjunction with our architectural team, general contractor, and civil engineers, plans are for a multiple-use worship center to seat 400 persons, a modest lobby/gathering area, a secure kid’s hallway with classrooms, a youth room, and four classrooms which will multi-function as adult Sunday School rooms, minister’s offices during the week, and other small group meetings.  Construction began in January 2024 and move-in to the new facility is expected by mid-2025.
