Pastor Paul and Gail Krob were given a vision.
We have humbly served the Madera Ranchos for over 25 years. The Lord called us here and he has rewarded our faithfulness. He is good always.
We have been at this location for 25 years and have watched as both our community and church have evolved. As a church we have shared the gospel to our community, while building relationships with the community. We have had the privilege of performing countless weddings, baby dedications and even funerals. In addition, we have worked with both parents and their children in the instruction of the gospel and life managing courses, Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace and Married's Ministry, as well as working with and teaching our teens and our children. It has been an honor to work with and minister to the lives of so many in the Ranchos community.
Our Church History
In 1989, Lifetree began meeting in a bungalow at Webster Elementary School. In 1991, we bought 4 ½ acres of property and built the sanctuary. In 1992, we moved into our current location on the corner of Avenue 13 ½ and Road 36. In 1995, we built our Christian Education building and in 1997 we bought ten acres of property for future growth. The church continued to grow and in 2004 we built our Administration offices. It has taken a lot of sacrifice, by a lot of people, to do what has been done. But, in all things we thank the Lord for what he has done in and through us. In 2010, we started our second campus in Los Banos and currently we are mentoring another church in Atwater.
