Living Hope is a church plant of Calvary Bible Church (cbcfortworth.org) in Fort Worth, TX. Several families were sent out to Mansfield by the elders to begin a church that is similar to Calvary. This body of believers is very dear to us and we will continue to benefit from their devoted support.
The Master’s Seminary (tms.edu) exists to advance the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping godly men to be pastors and trainers of pastors. Pastor Brent is currently pursuing his Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) through the Master's Seminary program led by Steve Lawson and others.
Living Hope is affiliated with Grace Advance (graceadvance.org) which is a ministry committed to training church planters and church-revitalizers all over the country. Our pastor, Brent Osterberg, spent the summer of 2013 in Sun Valley, CA with Grace Advance being trained by men like John MacArthur and Alexander Strauch.
The Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (biblicalcounseling.com) is an organization which trains pastors and laypeople alike to bring the life-giving truth of God's Word to hurting sinners seeking hope and change. Our pastor has been certified through ACBC since 2009 and some of our members are certified or have attended ACBC training as well.
