On August 1, 2004, God birthed "POWER HOUSE WORLD MINISTRIES" in its due season through the person of Bishop James A. Winslow, Jr., a preacher called to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a ministry of healing wounded souls, proclaiming liberty to the captives in the acceptable year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The evidence of this ministry is shown through the workings of the Holy Spirit and gifts of the five-fold ministry, also, the spiritual growth in the lives of the members and the birth of new and diverse ministries.
