What kind of church is Standing in the Word Ministries?

Standing in the Word Ministries is a Non-Denominational Spirit-Filled church. We are a ministry that believes and operates in the gifts & operations of the Holy Spirit. We are a church filled with praise, power, & an atmosphere of revival!

What can I expect when I visit?

You can expect to be greeted at the door by one of our greeters as you enter the building and into the sanctuary where you will encounter another greeter/usher or two to help make you feel welcomed and comfortable. We begin our services with a time of radical, heart-felt, and anointed praise and worship. During this time you may see people life their hands, clap, and or shout in an attitude of worship. Following praise & worship we will take an offering for the service. After the offering then Pastor Giovannetti will take the pulpit and pray over the offering that the people gave in the service and or online. After prayer Pastor Giovannetti will begin his message for the service. Pastor Giovannetti preaches a strong, non-compromised, anointed, and challenging message. It is our Pastor’s heart & desire that you walk out of our service more equipped, strengthened, and encouraged than you walked in.

Can you get prayer after a service?


Occasionally, Pastor will open up the altars and ask people to come forward for prayer during a service as well. Pastor Giovannetti is very serious about following the lead of the Holy Spirit in a service and doesn’t want to ever miss a moment when the Holy Spirit wants to minister and impart into lives in the service. Pastor Giovannetti flows in a strong and powerful prophetic anointing as he ministers through the laying on of hands as he prays for people.

If he has not done so already in a service, Pastor Giovannetti would love to meet you and pray with you following any service. Feel free to walk forward, following the service to greet him, and ask him for prayer.
