God called an Evangelist by the name of Laura Ann Hargrove ( seven years prior to accepting the call) to pastor a church.  She answered the call, but decided to wait to be sure of her calling.  In September 2007 God called again and asked Evangelist Laura Ann Hargrove to pastor His church.  She knew that NOW was the time.  She asked God where she would house His people and what would she call the church.  God informed Pastor Hargrove that He has given His people the power to speak over every situation and things have to change.

At that moment she knew the name of the church would be SPEAK LIFE CHURCH and we would start by having church on Thursday nights.  Pastor Hargrove planned our first Thursday night service and it would be on Thursday, October 11, 2007 at 7:30 pm.  But where would we meet.  Pastor Joe Johnson at Trinity CME Church allowed Speak Life to hold our very first meeting at his church.  THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD FILLED THE TEMPLE that night and has not left us since. God gave Pastor Hargrove our church motto:  “IF YOU USE WHAT YOU GOT, GOD WILL GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED” God has NOT fallen short of his promises.

Our church Anthem is “LORD I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU!  We were very thankful that Pastor Johnson allowed us to meet at his church, but we looked, prayed, looked, prayed, looked and prayed for God to bless us with our own building.  We went to many buildings looking, but God said so many times, that is not the one.  Late one night in June when Sister Sonya Hargrove was driving down Himes Ave with four loud children in her car and on her cell phone, she spotted the building at 6509 N. Himes Avenue and immediately called the owner.  The next day the pastor came and Pastor Hargrove knew this would be the first place we would call home.  Our first Sunday Service was the first Sunday in July.   God has blessed us Tremendously and we give Him ALL THE GLORY.

Our church scripture is, I Peter 2:9 – But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, and holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

We are a unique group of Christians that God has called to Speak Life over any situation.So we celebrate God’s blessings, God’s miracle’s, God’s, Anointing, God’s healing, God’s breakthroughs, God’s deliverance, and most importantly God’s Salvation Power.
