Touch by the Word Ministries, INC held its inaugural service on October 9, 2009. The ministry started out as a small Bible study with six members in the home of co-founders, Tony Mason and Joyce Mason. Touch by the Word Ministries was birthed by God, to minister to the spiritual needs of the people. We seek to bring about change in the hearts of the believer and to preach deliverance to those who have been hindered a religious mindset. Touch by the Word Ministries was assembled as a place of “refuge” for the hurting, the downtrodden and restoration for the fallen.
Pastor Mason and Evangelist Mason focused on preaching and teaching the “apostolic vision” of Touch by the Word Ministries. The vision of the ministry was articulated to the leaders, partners, and guests as the Five-fold Ministry Ascension Gifts were taught. The “Hand of God,” which incorporates all five-fold Ministry Gifts are essential to the fullness of God being revealed. Ephesians 4:11-13 articulates the purpose of God’s ministry gifts to His church.
Touch by the Word Ministries is a non-denominational apostolic church. Touch by the Word Ministries is a dynamic progressive ministry sanctioned by God and unhindered by man-made philosophies or traditional religious practices. Our theme is “Not Church as Usual!” We are composed of group of multi-racial and multi-cultural partners who love the Lord.
Jesus Christ is the Head and we are members of His Body. As God’s ambassadors, we are called to exhibit the qualities (very nature) of the Kingdom of God. We are committed to teaching and preaching the Word of God with a simple approach. The primary job of the leadership team is that of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. Through several years of intense studying and research, Pastor Mason is thoroughly convinced that God’s blueprint for the 21st century church is based on the principles of the apostolic church. Pastor Mason has obtained an understanding that the Lord is interested in birthing, equipping and preparing leaders and lay-persons for the work of the ministry. Teaching is the foundation of the ministry! God has called the leadership of Touch by the Word Ministries to teach and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
