Woodland Hills Family Church (WHFC) began in 2002 with nine men meeting around a table at Bob Evans with a vision to reach individuals and families in the greater Branson area for Christ. Today, WHFC is a thriving church with over 1,250 people attending services each weekend. The church meets in leased facilities adjacent to a theme park and is likely the only church in America that meets in a castle. With state of the art worship, children’s and student ministry venues, a counseling center, and ample meeting space, Woodland Hills Family Church is making a difference in the community and is poised for continued growth in the coming years. Lead Pastor Ted Cunningham is a nationally known marriage and family speaker and best-selling author communicating about difficult subjects in a fun, authentic, and thoroughly biblical style. The culture of WHFC is relaxed, real, and relentlessly focused on serving families in the Branson area.
