The Ministry of the Word International and House of Prayer was founded by Reverend Doctor Jacobs Obamedo and his wife Reverend Felicia Obamedo. It started as a house fellowship, with the Pastor’s family and a handful of friends in their living room. A brother then volunteered his shop as a place of worship on Sundays on Bloomfield Ave in Montclair, New Jersey.
We later moved into one of the rooms in of our current location, top floor of 380 Broad Street, in Newark, New Jersey. The power of God has continued to move in the ministry and by divine directives, a deliverance unit is currently opreational. Testimonies about the power of God in this ministry spread like wild fire here in the United States and abroad. The ministry expanded and currently occupies the entire top floor of 380 Broad Street, Newark, New Jersey.
The ministry reflects people from different ethnic and cultural background. The common denominator is the word of God ministered in the power of Holy Spirit without compromise. This is under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Jacobs Obamedo, his wife, Rev. Felicia Obamedo and appointed leaders.
