In the beginning…..after paying $1,600 a month to rent a storefront, Bishop Reed and the congregation agreed that it would be better to save the money they were spending on rent and utilities each month to purchase their own building.
After praying and under the leading of the Holy Spirit, Bishop had a plan that would lead to the purchase of our own building. He first asked everyone in October of 2008 to make a “tax offering” pledge from tax refunds that they would receive in 2009 and then moved the church services from the storefront to his home for a year.
From there, they would continue to save money for a down payment on a building.
Nearly 100% of the member’s committed to the “tax pledge” and all agreed to move the church services to the home of the First Family. The rest is history! On December 17, 2009, Pleasant Word Christian Center International Ministries closed on a building, located at
634 Whitehall Street.
As God continued to enlarge our territory, we moved to our current location at 119 Mayson Avenue.
Our vision is to empower you to change your world.
