The History of Word of Life Empowerment Church
Word of Life Empowerment is indeed a ministry called of God for such a
time as this!
Years before the birth of Word of Life Empowerment Church, the Lord
spoke to (then) Asst. Pastor Todney Bynes that he would soon begin
pastoring a church. Dr. Bynes was mentored, pastored and nurtured by the
late Rev. Drs. Robert and Mary A. Jones (We’re for Jesus Ministries) for 15
years and 4 years under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Yvette Williams.
With the leading of the Spirit of God, prayer, blessings, Godly council and
support of his family, Pastor Bynes began to move in the direction of
In November of 2012, the spoken Word given to him years ago came to life
as the Word of Life Empowerment was established. The ministry was
established under the leadership of Pastor, Dr. Todney Bynes and Lady
Tonetta Bynes; and our first church service was held on Sunday,
December 2, 2012 at the Best Western Hotel in Jacksonville Florida. After
approximately 6 months of being at the hotel, we began to grow out of that
space. Therefore, in July of 2013 we relocated to our new location at
Chaffee Pointe Plaza where we continue to acquire units and additional
space. To God be the Glory!
Our focus/mission is “Empowering the people to advance the Kingdom of
God by doing the will of God”.
We continue to experience the faithfulness of God by growth, debt
freedom, deliverance, right relationships, mentorships, continuous
supply of His Spirit, and undisputable revelation of the Word of God.
Under the divine Leadership of God and our Pastor, The Reverend Dr.
Todney Bynes, who has the heart of a shepherd and a great desire to see
God exalted in the Earth, the Word of Life Empowerment Church continues to be an instrument in the hand of God.
