Meet our Lead Pastors

Pastors Bill and Tricia Yanney founded Family Worship Center October 7, 2007. Bill grew up in Sioux City and graduated from North High School in 1979. He attended the University of Iowa and in 1985 was born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. Sensing the call to the ministry, upon graduation from college with an M.A., he attended RHEMA Bible Training Center where he received 2 years of formal ministry training. A short time after graduating from RHEMA, Bill met Tricia and they were married in 1995.

Tricia is native to Lakeland, Florida and graduated from Florida Southern College with a B.A., and RHEMA Bible Training Center in 1996. Together they have been missionaries in Spain and Peru, where they planted churches and pioneered and directed ministers’ training schools for 9 year under Mark Brazee Ministries. Bill was also an associate pastor at his home church, Family Worship Center of Lakeland, Florida for 1 1/2 years. 

In 2007, the Lord led them to come back "home" to Sioux City and pioneer Family Worship Center, a young and thriving church on Sioux City's north side. Pastor Bill and his wife are ordained ministers of the Gospel through Family Worship Center Churches Inc. They have four children: Emily, Austin, Megan, and Lucas.

Our Story

Our story began in the heart of Pastors Bill and Trish in 2006 while they were missionaries living in Arequipa, Peru. The Lord supernaturally led them to move back to Bill’s hometown of Sioux City and establish a church built on the Word and the move of the Spirit of God. The Lord spoke to Pastor Bill's heart that so many people's lives are broken, but Jesus can fix them. "You build the people," He said, "and I'll build the church..." The first official service of Family Worship Center in Sioux City, Iowa was Sunday October 7, 2007, with Pastor Bill and Trish, their 3 children at the time, his mother, and a handful of hungry people that came to the service through advertisement. Since then, FWC has grown to a powerful, dynamic church and is blessing the Siouxland area with Spirit-anointed ministry for the whole family!
