Pastors Greg and Deena Thurstonson pioneered Dominion Church in April of 1996 with a core group of about 30 members. Today, Dominion is a growing church with over 500 in attendance each week. Although Dominion is an Assemblies of God Church, we attract people from all different backgrounds, denominations, and faiths.
The Hotel Years
In the early years, Dominion met in the main ballroom at the Nassau Bay Hilton. At times, scheduling conflicts would force the church to meet at a nearby Holiday Inn. Despite this, the church still continued to grow.
The Shopping Center Years
In the summer of 2002, we moved into a shopping center in League City that provided us with 6,000 square feet of our own space. By 2004, we had outgrown our new home and began looking for our own property.
401 Landing Blvd
In May 2005, the leadership started searching for a place to call home. We purchased our very own property for the first time in August 2005. With God's help, we renovated 13,000 square feet of space from a State Farm claims center into a beautiful house of worship, where we saw God move and work powerfully for over 10 years.
In August 2008, Dominion Church stepped out in faith and purchased 30.5 acres of land in the heart of League City. After years of prayer, vision, and faith, we were ready to break ground in January 2015. Exactly one year later, after hours of meetings, lots of rain, and loads of prayer, we held our first service in our brand new building on January 3, 2016.
We are always looking ahead to what God has in store for our future. Our current building is just Phase 1 of our building project. As we pray and ask God to send us a harvest of souls from within our community, we know that it won't be long before we get started on Phase 2 of our building, and turn our current building into a world class center for our kids and youth ministries!
We are very committed to our young attenders here at Dominion Church. We believe that the training process of a child starts as infants. Whether your child is an infant or in the 5th grade, there is something for them here at DC. We want to partner with our parent and be a help in the child’s learning about Jesus!
We have something for every age group.
Bring your kiddos to our welcome center before one of our services and get them signed up and registered for one of our classes!
We have a ministry here at Dominion that is geared directly for our Jr High and High School students. From a weekly mid-week service, to camps, retreats and fun events, students are challenged to live a life that will shine bright the message of Jesus. Click here for more details about our youth ministry.
When do you meet?
We meet each Sunday at 10:00am for our corporate celebration service. Wednesday evenings, we have our mid-week bible study at 7:00pm.
Where are you located?
We are located at 6400 Calder Dr in Dickinson, TX.
Where do my children go once I get to the church?
Prior to our morning services and or our Wed. Night services, all children must be checked in at the "Welcome Center". All children's classes are located near the sanctuary. When you come in the main entrance, you may ask one of the greeters to show you where the Welcome Center is located... and from there, one of our Children's Leaders will show you to your child's specific class location. Parents must personally check in and check out their child. Click here to see the Children's Ministry page for more information.
What should I expect at Service?
In our Sunday Services (9am & 10:45am), you will experience passionate PRAISE and Worship led by Pastor Deena Thurstonson. You will experience PRAYER… because we believe that things change when we pray! It's the foundation of Dominion Church, therefore we will have a time of concentrated prayer for people that have a need. You will also be encouraged and inspired by the PREACHED Word given by our Senior Pastor, Greg Thurstonson. Most of all – you will experience God's PRESENCE in our time together on Sunday Morning, because that is what we value the most!
We guarantee that you will not experience “church as usual”. We feel that Sunday Worship should be very purposed and that the Holy Spirit should have His way in our service. You'll Laugh (because we value lots of humor in our day). You'll Cry… You might even have fun at church (now there's a thought).
We look forward to having you as a part of this Sunday Worship Experience.
