The Church History
Changing Lifestyles Fellowship "The Fellowship" was organized as an offspring of Changing Lifestyles Ministries, Inc. The Ministry was founded in 1996 by Phillip and Evelyn Suber. The goal of the ministry was and is to equip and strengthen families with a biblical foundation and a fellowship of love. The Ministry sponsored activities such as marriage, single, retreats for youth and family, annual prayer breakfast, Valentine Ball, socials, weekly radio broadcast and tape ministries. The Lord blessed this ministry to help many families and individuals.
In 1998 Pastor Suber organized and implemented an outreach ministry specifically targeting the un-church in the Liberty- Dayton community. Through this outreach ministry the Lord opened doors to include conducting weekly services in the nursing homes and Liberty Hospital. The Outreach expanded to provide worship and evangelism services in Glendale, Cedar Ridge and Cherry Creek Apartments in Dayton, TX. Many received the opportunity to accept Christ as their personal savior through these outreaches ministries. The Lord Continued to bless and give direction to the ministry.
The Lord Blessed Changing Lifestyles Ministries with continual growth and awareness of the needs of the Liberty- Dayton community. Pastor Suber was led by the Holy Spirit to formalize Changing Lifestyles Fellowship in September 1999. The service took place in Ames TX with the following charter members; Pastor Phillip Suber Sr, Evelyn Suber, Betty Bankhead, Judy Jackson, Patricia Jackson, Lorraine Samuels, Catherine Walker, Emma Baldwin, La Toya Jackson, Verline Hicks, Syreeta Jackson, Phillip Suber Jr., Henry Winters Jr., Phyllis Winters, Padon Suber, and Tiffani Guillory. Pastor Charles Carter Sr. and Linda Carter of Strait Life MBC were the officiator and witness.
In January 2004 the Lord continued to bless the Fellowship and opened doors through the purchase of this building and land occupied here today at 4011 N Cleveland Hwy Dayton, TX. We rejoice in the name of the Lord our redeemer and sustainer of all things. The renovations over the years continually reflect the spiritual restoration we have experienced as a church family.
