Word of His Grace is an apostolic center which seeks to see all of the 5-fold ministry expressed with the body. We feel a strong call to help equip and release all the gifts within the body and see them fulfill their destiny. We feel we are part of a larger expression of the body in our territory and seek to work with other churches for a unified expression of Christ to our communities. Our leadership style is a team of leaders with various gifts overseen by our Pastor Matt Perusse.
Word of His Grace has an apostolic anointing and calling. The Lord spoke to founder Joe McIntyre concerning Word of His Grace and told him “You are involved in serious business with eternal consequences, I have a world vision and if you are going to walk with Me, you must have a world vision. You must believe you are going to affect the world. If it’s not worth sacrificing for, it’s not worth doing.” These statements from the Lord under-gird all Word of His Grace does in ministry.
Some foundational areas of teaching at Word of His Grace are: The Father-Heart of God, Who We Are in Christ, the Life of Faith, Healing, and the power of Grace to change us.
We attempt to receive all that God is saying through the various streams of the Body and apply them to our lives individually and corporately.
Joe McIntyre was the founding minister of Word of His Grace and was the apostolic overseer. Joe was saved in 1970 and called to the ministry in 1980. The Father commissioned him to go and "tell people how good I am." At the leading of the Spirit he started the work in 1981.
Joe's burden was to see people come into deep, rich fellowship with God the Father, to know who they are in Christ, to learn to heal the sick and cast out demons, to wield the Word of God with wisdom and practical application, and to train other ministries and release them to their destiny.
Joe was the president of Kenyon's Gospel Publishing Society which publishes the works of the late E.W. Kenyon. Joe’s first book was about Kenyon entitled E.W. Kenyon and His Message of Faith: The True Story (published in 1997) and many other titles are available.
Joe went home to be with his Heavenly Father on December 14, 2017. His weekly teachings and writings inspired many.
Word of His Grace is a covenant community, restoring, teaching and training people to impact the world, through embracing the Lordship of Christ.
Our desire is to help people come into a relationship with God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ through the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit that causes their Christianity to be life-transforming and central to their way of life.
