WORD OF LIFE
+ THE BEGINNING OF IT ALL:
In February 2007, God interrupted what was thought to have been a fulfilled life for Pastor Rickeno Moncur and shifted it in a different direction. A mandate for souls and establishing a body of life-giving believers was impregnated within the womb of his spirit, not to have just another church, but rather to invoke another move of God on the earth. Thus, inspired by the Holy Spirit, the blue print for Word of Life Kingdom Ministries was written. Strongly convicted by what God had given to him, Pastor Moncur sought counsel from his pastor and under shepherd, Overseer Helen McPhee. She immediately recognized that this calling was God’s and not his. Sensing its urgency, she gave her blessings and released him to walk in obedience to the call of God on his life.
Having been released at the end of March 2007, he along with seven (7) other persons who felt the leading of the Holy Spirit to connect with him assembled for a time of seeking God through prayer. During this time, he was further advised and given counsel by Bishop Neil C. Ellis of the Mt. Tabor Full Gospel Baptist Church, whose hands he was placed in for further preparation for his call to the pastoral ministry. In submission to the counsel and instruction of his bishop, he sat under the profound teaching and tutelage of Bishop Ellis and under the immediate supervision of Pastor Delton Ellis for a period of eight (8) Months. While at Mt. Tabor, Bishop Ellis in his kind heartedness also offered the usage of Mt. Tabor’s Upper Room as a means to assist in Pastor Moncur’s preparation and those assembled with him in a time of seeking God and vision casting.
July 05th, 2007 was the first official Prayer Meeting. The Theme for that night was ‘Accessing The Anything Anointing‘ taken from Matthew 18:19-20 (Amplified Bible), “Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree about whatever they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in Heaven. For wherever two or three are gathered in My name, there I AM in the midst of them”. Undeniably, the Father was in the midst of them, as phenomenal things began to happen; signs and wonders surely followed; such as, the breaking of generational curses, soul ties & demonic strongholds, healing of diabetes, tumor on the brain, persons were blessed with cars, debt cancellations, jobs and promotions, business deals and spiritual breakthroughs.
There’s no doubt that the favor of the Lord was with this great body of extraordinary believers from its inception.
Moreover, by the end of October, this growing body began holding additional prayer services on Sunday nights at the S. C. McPherson High School Auditorium, located Baillou Hill Road; and gave themselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word – Acts 6:4
“The earnest prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available“. James 5:16
(The Season of Formation)
The Word of Life Kingdom Ministries was organized and officers were elected on November 29th, 2007 in the Mt. Tabor F. G. B. Church’s Board Room with Bishop B. Wenith Davis as the presiding official. There, twelve (12) persons including Pastor Moncur answered the call of God and stepped out on faith into the unknown to launch a revolution in the earth, reaching out in love, to minister life and liberty through the light of the word of life.
Persons including: his mother, Nadine Moncur, Louise Newry, Jillian Saunders, Tanya Duncombe, Deondre Farquharson, Ashley Neely, Judy Smith, Chancel Rolle, Sheree Lobosky, Adrumea Roach, Albert Braynen, Alexandria Sweeting. Other charter members who were unable to be there due to working schedules are as follows; Shantell Braynen, Mario Almanzor, Kirshanna Moncur & Shakessa Fox; making it a total of seventeen (17) persons. Regardless of the many odds that were against them, they remained unflinching in their faith as they stood with Pastor Moncur to birth this vision and today, it is inevitable that the rest is history!
+ WHEN THE FULLNESS OF TIME WAS GONE:
(When the Fullness Of Time Was Come)
Pastor Moncur was officially ordained as an Elder in the month of November at the Mt. Tabor Full Gospel Baptist Church by Bishop Neil. C. Ellis, the 27th day in the year 2007 to sacred gospel ministry; under the auspices of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship Bahamas Region. Heaven & Earth stood still and smiled as they embraced another revivalist that will manifest the glory of God the Father on the earth.
(The Launching Of Something Great)
On December 2nd, 2007, Word of Life Kingdom Ministries held its first official service as an organized body of Life-giving believers; held at the S.C. McPherson’s Auditorium on Baillou Hill Rd, New Providence. During the first service, a total of seventy (70) persons joined in the celebration of a new beginning. Indeed, that Sunday was deemed unforgettable, for the glory and power of God overshadowed the Auditorium where they were assembled, making His presence heavy and evident from the praise & worship to the preach word; many persons gave their lives to the Lord, were slain in the spirit and left feeling refreshed, revived and inspired as Pastor Moncur delivered a prolific sermon entitled: “It’s A New Day!”.
(Transition Due To Expansion)
There was no telling what God was up to next, for a shift was taking place in the atmosphere. God made what seemed impossible with man, possible for Word of Life as they obeyed the voice of God yet again and embraced the opportunity to impart and affect change by relocating. Services then moved from S. C. McPherson to Prince Charles Drive. During this period, the ministry experienced phenomenal growth, spiritually and numerically. The unadulterated word of God was constantly delivered; souls were saved and set free.
Hence, the Evangelism Ministry of this progressive church took the nearby community by storm every Saturday evening for 3 consecutive (3) months; not only were souls added to the church, but more importantly, many came in contact with, and embraced a life-changing relationship with Jesus.
As the scripture according to Acts 2:46-47 (KJV) states, “And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved”.
(Forward, Upward, Onward, Together)
Due to the rapid growth and expansion of the ministry, On August 31st, 2008, Word of Life once again transitioned after a period of four (4) months on Prince Charles Dr., affording us larger accommodating facilities. Since the inception of this fertile ministry, a sum of 62 persons has given their lives to the Lord. During such time the ministry had a total of 190 members and 12 persons awaiting baptism. Consequently, ‘Nothing is impossible for extraordinary people, for the future eagerly awaits them, the present is preparing them and the past is definitely behind and is unable to stop them’. Forward, upward, onward, together they go; looking unto Jesus, who is the author and the finisher of our faith.
(A Season of Expansion, Renovation, Restoration,
Elevation & Celebration)
In _(date)_____Word of Life relocated once again to East Street South next to Spotless Cleaners because the Lord was indeed doing great and might works in the lives of His people and the ministry. As a unified body of believers “Pursuing the Glory, through unity” God begun to do the miraculous and the incredible. The invasion had begun, the Kingdom Invasion, we had once again out grew the space, the capacity of the weight of God’s manifested presence and Glory had overtaken the atmosphere. It was time for yet another awesome move of faith. In an effort to sustain and further the vision and mandate of the Ministry, on March 6th, 2011, Word of Life relocated into the Independence Shopping Plaza which is located on Tonique Williams-Darling Highway. This move was an exciting one for us, as we anticipated even greater growth as well as the launching of several new ministries that would empower both the people of Word of Life and the surrounding community.
To God be the glory, great things He has done; is doing and will continue to do in the lives of this august body of life-giving believers”
