About Pastor Oliver
In 1998, God called Dexter B. Oliver to the ministry of preaching and teaching the Gospel of Salvation for reaching lost souls. He believed so much in the saving power of God’s Word, that God blessed him with a vision to establish True Bible Christian Fellowship Ministry, whose primary mission would be to evangelize the lost. The fruit of this vision grew and developed over time into outreach and “door to door” evangelism.
Subsequently, He developed an Internet website to underscore his ministry, and to broaden the reach of God’s eternal message through the technology of audio streaming his recorded sermons.
During his interim, God elevated Minister Oliver to that of Associate Pastor at St. Luke 1st MBC Worship Center, under Pastor Harvey M. Walker. It was at St. Luke where he answered God’s call to serve as a rotational Lay Minister to the Star of Hope’s Emergency Men’s Shelter located in Downtown Houston. While serving in ministry at this shelter for the homeless, Pastor Oliver refined his gift of preaching and teaching God’s Word through regularly scheduled ministry engagements. He still maintains this outreach ministry today!
Pastor Oliver’s 2nd tenure as Associate Pastor came under the leadership of Dr. Ivory L. Varner at Bible Way Fellowship Baptist Church where he served as Director of the Media Ministry and the Evangelism Ministry Leader. While serving in ministry at Bible Way, Pastor Oliver was called by God to birth True Bible Christian Fellowship Church. With Pastor Varner’s blessing, Pastor Oliver and his family set out to establish the vision he received from God.
On December 13, 2004, True Bible Christian Fellowship Church held its first bible study in the Oliver’s living room. Later in February 2005, True Bible received its 501(c) 3 designation as a church.
Pastor Oliver received his Bachelor’s of Science in Christian Leadership in December 2004 from The College of Biblical Studies in Houston, Texas. He is joyfully wedded to his wife, Wendy D. Oliver and they are blessed with two daughters, Tiffany Danielle and Alana Naomi.
