About Us


The Pentecostal Church of Atascocita (POA) is pastored by Rev. Kevin Martin and began as a daughter work of Royalwood Pentecostal Church on June 23, 2002. On June 16, 2004, the United Pentecostal South Texas District Board approved The Pentecostal Church of Atascocita to become autonomous with Home Mission status. God was nowhere near done performing miracles for POA, in May 2006 we obtained one acre of land completely debt free and built our first church building. We now have acquired 4 acres of land and have built a second sanctuary, bringing us from a small storefront to over 25,000 square ft. all together!

We want to thank you for your interest in Life Christian Academy. We are living in unprecedented times. Now more than ever the world needs strong Christians, disciples ready to face the challenges and the pressures of the world we are currently living in.

We knew that it was time for us to take a stand against the spiritual warfare our children are fighting in their everyday lives. God has confirmed the opening of this school and we are beyond thrilled to offer students, parents, and families with a safe alternative to public school. Basing their academics with Bible-led education and teaching our children that there is one powerful almighty savior and that His name is Jesus!
