Word from Above Ministry

Organization Description: 

Welcome to a place to…

New member classes and corporate prayer are held at 10 a.m. on Sundays. The purpose is to introduce potential members to the vision and beliefs of WFAM. Participants establish and deepen relationships which promote spiritual growth and maturity.

Members are encouraged to attend monthly programs which provide opportunities to discover the truths of God’s Word in small group settings which encourage practical application in every area of life. We strive to give the economically disadvantaged and at-risk children and youth a safe place to grow. Further information regarding personal growth conferences, retreats and youth activities will be provided upon request.

Believers are commissioned to reach out into the community with the love of Jesus Christ. Opportunities to serve are provided through mentoring programs, adopting schools, nursing homes and hosting neighborhood social events.
