Why God called us and how it happened?
In 1998 God gave Pastor Bill Jessie the vision for World Outreach Ministries while serving faithfully in ministry. Through prayer and counsel it was confirmed that it was not time to move forward with the vision. In 2011 God directed Pastor Jessie to plant World Outreach Ministries in St Petersburg, FL. World Outreach Ministries held its first meeting to share the vision in January of 2012 with eleven people in attendance. The anticipation and excitement grew as we secured a location for our worship services at the JW Cate Recreation Center. On February 17, 2012 World Outreach Ministries held its first service.
In July of 2014 God placed on Pastor Jessie’s heart to look for a new location in Pinellas Park, Fl. God shared that he wanted World Outreach Ministries Christian Center in a more centralized area in Pinellas County. God opened the door for World Outreach Ministries to relocate the ministry and to have the first service on April 5, 2015 Easter Sunday at Classical Christian School for the Arts in Pinellas Park, Fl.
In October 2017 God opened the door for World Outreach Ministries to return to St. Petersburg, FL. and to have services at Pinellas Technical College. Our love for Pinellas County and surrounding areas is incredible, and we know that our steps are ordered by the gracious hand of God. “The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” Psalm 37:11
