Riverwalk Fellowship History

In 1999,  Pastor Steve and Diane Solomon began to sense that the Lord was leading them to plant a local church in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

The nationwide radio ministry of Praise in the Night was going strong and affecting countless lives every night.  Steve, Diane, and a few close friends took this matter to prayer.  The Solomon family moved to the DFW area in 1991 to minister on PITN from its flagship station KVTT  91.7 FM studios in Dallas, Texas.

As members of Calvary Cathedral in Fort Worth, Solomon shared this call from the Lord with Pastor Bob Nichols and subsequently, the decision to start Riverwalk Fellowship was scheduled for 2001.

Through a series of divine encounters, Riverwalk was first located in a shopping center in Grand Prairie, Texas. The first meeting was February 2, 2001 and the first Sunday service was Easter Sunday, April 15, 2001.

During the Sunday, April 15th worship service, the Lord spoke to Pastor Steve and it was told to the new congregation, “The Lord said, By the Feast of Tabernacles, you will have your own building!”

The Feast of Tabernacles began at sundown on October 2, 2001 .

On October 2nd, Steve told Diane that he was going to drive around the city until he found a building.  While he was driving in the North Richland Hills area, Steve received a phone call from Pastor Bill Fletcher of Grace Fellowship in Haltom City.  Bill asked if Steve could come by his office as he had something to discuss.  

When Steve arrived at the church, Bill informed him that he knew that Riverwalk was looking for property.  He asked if Steve would consider his building.  

Grace Fellowship and Riverwalk Fellowship merged with Pastor Steve and Diane as the pastors and as the Lord said, by the Feast of Tabernacles we had our own building!

Since that time, the Lord has been pleased to use the ministry and congregation of Riverwalk to touch many lives in the community.

In 2014, Pastor Steve was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme, a terminal brain cancer.  Pastor, his family, friends, and church congregation began the fight of faith and stood firm on the promises of God for healing.  On May 30, 2016 Pastor took his last breath on earth and stepped over into Heaven – the hope of every believer.  

From Pastor’s death, until December 29, 2018, the family and remaining congregation of Riverwalk continued the church and then realized it was time to end the season of Riverwalk Fellowship as a physical church.  

January 2019, a new season began and Riverwalk Fellowship online was born!
