The Mission of City Hope

Love God. Love People. Give Hope.

Our Pastors

Ben & Annaliese

Pastor Ben and Annaliese have been in full time ministry together since 2003. They just moved back to Wichita Falls from Madison, Alabama where they served Daystar Church for more than 14 years. 

If you know the Murray family, you know they are full of life and passion. Annaliese and Ben have four handsome sons, Garrett, Gavin, Gideon and Gibson.

Planting a church in Wichita Falls began as a dream in 2007. For the following 10 years Ben and Annaliese had the opportunity to serve God in a healthy, life-giving church. God was preparing them for what He had prepared for them. 

In late 2017, God made it clear that it was time to come back home with the desire to give hope of purpose and place to belong. Together they dream that City Hope Church will be a place where people can be real and authentic before God, where meaningful relationships are formed through small group communities and where families can discover their purpose in life. Ben and Annaliese are trying to raise a family that believes nothing is impossible with God and they would be honored to be part of this journey with you.

Ben and Annaliese would love to meet you at an upcoming service.
