We need God in America again! Join us on Sunday nights at 6:30pm as we stand in the gap for our nation and churches by “Calling America back to God and the church to a place of power!” The success of a nation is her spiritual foundation. Click here to go to our Services page. Standing In The Word Ministries is a ministry with a specific plan and purpose. And that is to establish foundations for lives to be built upon and to call forth an army of believers to a place of victory and power! We are a revival-oriented, Bible-believing and Bible-teaching, supernatural ministry that is alive with the power and presence of God. The primary reason we meet together is to focus our attention on God, giving Him our worship and receiving His blessing and inspiration. Every service is a special time of refreshing in God’s presence. We desire to impact God’s people with the living and active Word of God, while we see hurting lives healed (body, soul, and spirit) and filled to overflowing with God’s presence, power, and joy. “….Son of man, can these bones live? So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!” ---Ezekiel 37:3-4

Due to the financial downturn in America, Pastor Rich has had to take a temporary hiatus from the media in order to keep the ministry financially strong which is his fiscal responsibility. Pastor Rich has all intentions to restart his programming as soon as is practical. He has a great love for America and remains strong in his vision to see this nation return to God and a generation won to Christ.
