Our History

While serving as an Associate Pastor at the beginning of 2010, God placed the vision of Rhema Word of Life Church on the heart and mind of Manuel & his wife Cassandra Washington. He sensed the Lord calling him to start a church. After much prayer, preparation, and assistance from many faithful Christians, the Washington family founded Rhema Word of Life Church.

In May 2010, we held our first public service at Holiday Inn Express in North Houston. We had over 100 friends & family visit our church on that special day. Rhema experienced fruitful months at Holiday Inn, creating disciples out of new converts and helping believers experience a fresh relationship with the Lord.  Then shortly thereafter, we moved to Park Inn where we continued to have services until the end of September.

In October 2010, Rhema explored the possibility of entering into a contract to lease the facility in Greater Greenspoint Area. Our first service was held there in Sunday October 3rd, 2010. Rhema ministry matured and great things happened as the Lord continued to add to our numbers. We also were a blessing to the community by sponsoring Back to School Drives & Christmas Toy Drive at the Haverstock Hill Apartments.  Here at Rhema, our mission is to Restore & Transform Lives by the Rhema Word of God!

In 2012, Rhema Kids Factory was launched on Sunday November 4th, 2012. The children has their own facility so they can worship on their level. Ages range from birth – 6th grade. We also have our youth ministry “EmPowered” for 7th grade- High school!
