Our Savior’s Church, located in Broussard, Louisiana was born in the hearts of Pastor Jacob and Michelle Aranza and was launched in October of 1998. Within a few months the church had grown to 300 in attendance.
In 2000, Our Savior’s Church began construction on the new sanctuary and educational building. By this time, the average attendance was at 450. Through a series of miraculous events, we were able to complete our current facilities on Father’s Day of 2001.
In 2002, Our Savior’s Church experienced still another influx of growth. Attendance was reaching 1,100 and we began making preparations for future growth. Part of this preparation included pastoral and staff additions and in 2004 God added to our leadership team in a tremendous way.
In 2006, we completed the next phase of our growth with the completion of our Student Ministries and Children’s Ministry buildings. By this time growth had climbed to almost 1,500.
In January of 2009, construction of the new Lafayette campus was brought to completion and the work of God was expanded to the greater Lafayette area. Since that time, the Lafayette campus has experienced incredible growth each year and is now averaging a weekend attendance of just under 2,300.
In January of 2010, we expanded again, with our third campus opening in Opelousas. The campus began as a thriving, life-giving campus in the heart of downtown Opelousas, and in just over a year was averaging 400 at our weekend services. Continued growth and limited space led us to take a step of faith, and on Easter of 2013 we had our very first service in the Opelousas Civic Center with over 1,400 in attendance. Since moving to the Civic Center, the Opelousas campus has continued to see amazing growth and is averaging a weekend attendance of just over 1,000.
