Pastors Dexter & Christina Harrell
World Praise Church International began with a bible study in the living room of Pastors Dexter and Christina with only their children in attendance. The Lord gave the Harrells a vision to start a church ministry that will not only establish the Kingdom of God here on earth, but impact the lives of men, women, boys, and girls by teaching the Word of God with simplicity and understanding.
We are a church who love God and His People! Also, we believe in life application of The Word of God will produce positive results in the life of The Believer!
Our church is under the spiritual covering and in covenant fellowship of RBP Ministries, which is under the leadership of Dr. Richard B. Peoples, Sr., Presiding Bishop of Faith Outreach Church of Hephzibah, Georgia.
Dexter and Christina Harrell are the pastors of World Praise Church International. A native of Tallahassee, Florida, Pastor Dexter received the vision World Praise Ministries in 2006. The ministry held it's initial gathering in the Harrells' Tallahassee residence with only his wife and children in attendance. With the increase of additional families, the ministry's name was changed to World Praise Church International.
Pastor Dexter is a veteran of the United States Armed Forces and the Senior Pastor of the church. He is passionate about teaching the Word of God with the expectation of empowering God's People and to those who need to know Him!
Pastor Christina is a minister of the Gospel and serves with her husband as Co-Pastor of the church. She has a passion to minister to other women and children.
The Harrells are proud parents to four children: Chellise, Chelnise, Jaylen and Zoe.
"And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry." Habakkuk 2:2-3
