About Us

Word of Faith Family Church was pioneered by Founding Pastors, Dr. Steve and Cheryl Ingram. Licensed and ordained through Kenneth Copeland Ministries, Pastors Steve and Cheryl served as music ministers for Brother Kenneth Copeland, as well as traveled in their own music and teaching ministry for many years, before launching the initial church in Daytona Beach on September 21, 1997.

Pastors Steve and Cheryl, their son, Steve Jr., staff and students attending IMI School of Ministry and Music were the initial attendees. The church began to grow quickly in the next few months, when on Sunday night, February 22, 1998, their faith was greatly tested. A violent series of tornadoes ripped across Florida completely demolishing the sanctuary and offices. This event was highlighted in the magazine, “The Believers Voice of Victory.” Without a building the church met in a tent and then received favor from a Methodist church for several months utilizing their church facility. That began a journey of moving many times to many different locations. The motto became, “In Him we live and move and move and move…”

In January of 2012, Word of Faith Orlando became an extension of our growing church family. A group of believers, known as Heart of Orlando Worship Center, was formerly pastored by Dr. Howard and Rosella Ridings. Pastor Howard decided to move to Heaven. After several interim pastors, the two congregations Word of Faith Daytona and Heart of Orlando Worship Center decided to merge efforts to reach out with greater impact in the Central Florida Region and the I-4 corridor. The church location was moved to Altamonte Springs in the Northern Orlando area, and now hosts people who drive long distances to attend services. These folks believe, “A church alive is worth the drive.”

At Word of Faith Family Church, we’re more than just a place of worship – we’re a thriving and loving family. Our community offers countless opportunities to forge friendships, receive ministry, and impact people’s lives with the boundless love of God. No matter who you are or where you come from, there’s something here for everyone. We warmly invite you to explore and discover what makes our church family truly special. Join us and become a part of our growing FAMILY!

Pastors Steve and Cheryl, Pastor Rosella and their associate Pastors Andrew and Liebe look forward to meeting you!
