Since opening our doors in 2006, Power In Praise Ministries, Inc. has focused its efforts on building Christian ministry that keeps the goals of winning souls and empowering people to be their best selves at the forefront. God gave us a ministry blueprint to break away from church as usual and create an atmosphere that will infuse Christ-like characteristics, impart Kingdom principles, and ignite positive change to liberate and cultivate people through love, service, worship and Word. Our Pastor, Bishop C.D. Cannon, Sr. and his wife, Lady LeFeisha, deliver a real-life approach to ministry where Biblical teaching, practical, yet powerful preaching, and relevant, relational ministries are used to equip believers for the call of ministry and the challenges of daily living and bring life-changing worship experiences to God’s people.
The Power in Praise Ministries
Power is a place of worship for believers in Jesus Christ of all ages, races, ethnicities, genders, and walks of life to nurture Christian growth through regular gathering for fellowship, corporate worship, glorifying God, and edifying and building the body of Christ. Our heart’s desire is to lead the lost to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, establish disciples through evangelizing, preaching, and practical teaching and empower the people of God though Biblical principles to be more effective and progressive in their home, church, work, and community environments.
Our Kingdom assignment is simple:
Empower the people of God to achieve abundant life here on earth and eternal life in heaven;
Impact communities by providing quality services and resources for those who are connected to the ministry and the community-at-large to create positive change; and
Advance the Kingdom of God by winning the lost to Christ, developing disciples, and promoting excellence and integrity in our service and commitment to God spiritually, ecclesiastically, and administratively.
We pride ourselves on giving God our best – in our praise, our service, our sowing of time, talent, and treasure, and our stewardship of what God has blessed us with – and it’s evidenced by our consistent growth in membership and ministries, to include two Sunday worship services, Children’s Church, and multiple properties owned by the church. Located in the City of Harrington, Delaware, we purchased, renovated, and paid off our 14 Clark Street location in less than five years, acquired property at 27 Clark Street, affectionately called “The Hope House” that provides outreach and support services to the community through Greater Harrington Community Development Corporation, our community service partner whose goal is to facilitate ongoing, long term improvements and foster positive change for the people who live, learn and labor in Harrington, Delaware and surrounding communities. We also own 26 acres of land in the City of Harrington that will be developed for the furtherance of our Christian and community service initiatives.
We’ve been blessed to accomplish some amazing things in ministry and as a ministry and there is far more work assigned to our hands. We invite you become a part of our history in the making as we continue to empower people, impact communities and advance the Kingdom of God!
We're sure the question has popped into you head, "what IS 'The Power Factor'?" It's how we describe those big “little” things that makes Power so uniquely special and what you are sure to experience when worshipping with us! We've got a great music department, a beautiful facility, and engaging worship, but we are graced with some things that make Power an awesome place to call "home!"
A house where PRAYER...
We are a ministry excited about prayer! Prayer is powerful tool in developing our relationship with God and we consider it both a privilege and a right as children of God. Whether it’s at the start of a worship service or early on a Saturday morning, we take joy in every opportunity presented to us to talk to (and hear from) our Father in prayer!
A temple where POWER...
We are a ministry that believes in the life-changing power of the Word and the almighty power of our triune God - the Father who created us in His image, the Son who saved us, gives us the ability to have abundant life on earth and access to everlasting life in heaven and the Spirit who keeps us and empowers us to live a life separated from sin.
An atmosphere where PRAISE...
We are a ministry who loves to express our praise and worship our great and wonderful God! Whether it’s the clapping of our hands, the dancing in our feet, or the tears in our eyes, we make no apologies about the praise we offer to our God for being who He is and for the things He’s done!
A place where PURPOSE...
We are a ministry that believes there is a divine purpose for each of us as children of God and through prayer, praise, worship and Word, we strive daily to walk in that purpose and His plan for our lives!
A family where PEOPLE...
We absolutely love our church and those who are a part of it! We are of diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, races, and ages and regardless of our history, family dynamic, socioeconomic status, or education, - from our loving and supportive leaders to the youngest member - we share the same love of God and we share the same love for one another!
"and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power."
– Ephesians 1:19
