The World of Pentecost Church was founded and pastored in 1978 by John Brand, his wife and family. Due to the growth of the church in 1980 the property where the church now stands was purchased. Three buildings were moved onto the church property by Nickel Bros. house moving; a one room school house which was the first place of worship, a building which would become the foyer, classrooms etc. and a house which was to be the parsonage. Foundations were poured and the buildings were set up. A sanctuary was added and is used as such today.
Following the Brands the James Bridges family came to pastor the church and were here for 18 years before assuming the pastorate of Apostolic Lighthouse Church in Dawson Creek. In the spring of 2001 Ron and Cindy Ens accepted the pastorate of the congregation after serving as Pastor of Lighthouse Pentecostal Church in Quesnel, BC for 23 years.
The church has continued to grow and has endeavored to minister to all segments of the Nanaimo community. We have put on many events that have touched the community through community outreach programs like party in the park, pancake breakfasts, and All Nations Sunday. This includes several for the homeless and those struggling to get by from day to day.
