Okotoks Alliance Church had its beginning in the home of Pastor Rudy Friesen in 1988. Pastor Friesen, his wife Sharon, and a small group of enthusiastic people met together sharing time in the worship of God through “church meetings”, social gatherings at the local pool, the local skating rinks and in each others' homes.
In early 1989 the church moved into the “Christ the Redeemer Offices' building, immediately to the east of what is now the Town Of Okotoks Municipal Centre. The 5000 plus square feet of space allowed the church to expand its ministry efforts, providing a strong visible street presence in downtown Okotoks.
Like many early church works, Okotoks Alliance Church led a nomadic existence, moving from the “Royal Bank” building (1 McRae Street) to the building that now houses the movie theatre in Okotoks and to several schools in town.
