Foundations Church

building a biblical community on family at a time

Foundations Church | Lafayette, Louisiana
Building a biblical community one family at a time.



My name is Steven Bowen and I am the senior pastor of Foundations Church. I am passionate about ministering to the whole family, seeing men be the spiritual leaders of their home, and seeing Christians live out the blessings that come with a Christ-centered lifestyle. In September of 2011, the Lord spoke to me in prayer to plant a church with the focus of building a biblical community through the family. He gave me the vision for a church where Christians live according to a Biblical worldview, have strong families, and are discipled to be secure in their faith.


My wife, Megan, and I spent the next couple of years praying about the when, where, and how of this exciting call. These questions were answered one by one as we began to seek counsel from the Senior Pastor, Mike Ware, at Victory Church where I had been pastoring for the previous 4 years. With complete support, Pastor Mike encouraged us to participate in the intensive training offered with the Association of Related Churches, also known as ARC. 


Since it’s inception in 2000, the ARC has helped start hundreds of churches. During our training and screening process, Megan and I were assessed and scored 15 out of 15. We appreciate the tools and knowledge we received through ARC. After much prayer, the Lord also made it clear that we were to go back to my hometown of Lafayette, LA.


On March 15th, 2015 we started this exciting adventure of building a biblical community one family at a time! Our core values are to Know GodGrow in Community, and Go Near and Far. We hope that you will join us for a service here at Foundations Church and give us a chance to introduce ourselves!

David and Jahanna joined the Foundations Church family in March of 2017. After almost 15 years in worship ministry, David took over as our Worship Ministry Director. He is excited to lead the church into its next season of worship. He explains, “Since I was a child, I’ve had a deep, unquenched desire to worship God and be in His presence. Both of my parents are worshippers at heart and showed us as small children what it meant to pursue God through both prayer and song.” For David and Jahanna, their heart’s deepest cry is “to see earth filled with heaven’s glory and wonder through a relentless lifestyle of worship and surrender.” David and Jahanna first met in high school. After many years of building a friendship and waiting for Jahanna to complete nursing school, they were married in November of 2013.
