Woodside Bible Church was started in 1955 in Troy, Michigan, when a few families saw the need for a church that was passionate about reaching people with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ. They began to pray and meet in homes for worship and to study the Word. Our first senior pastor was Harold Moran who served from 1955 to 1965; Marvin Turner 1965 to 1970; Dave Andersen 1970 to 1988, and Doug Schmidt 1991 to 2019. During this time, God grew the number of campuses from1 to 14 across southeast Michigan.

In May 2019, Pastor Chris Brooks began as Senior Pastor and we look forward to how God will continue to give us His vision as we follow His lead into communities here and around the world. We believe people everywhere desperately need Jesus.
