Our Church History
The Story of AHOPM
Pastor Conda D. Ross, in July 2008, received from the Holy Spirit a vision to serve broken and hurting people as well as enrich the lives of families through living a life of Jesus Christ and biblical principles.
She submitted herself to 2 years of mentorship, guidance, Godly counsel, prayer and strategic planning
and the manifestation of “A HOUSE OF PEACE MINISTRIES” (hereafter AHOPM), became official in 2010.
On January 9, 2011, Pastor Ross and her family members had the first service at her home in Arlington,
Texas. The mission and commitment of this church became: To restore the broken, revitalize the weary
and reconcile the divided in our community and the city abroad through Empowering families to lead
the way to a complete life in Jesus Christ.
2011 – 2013, through prayer, Bible study, encouraging saints to flow in their gifts and door-to-door
evangelism several ministries evolved. With dedication, determination and donations we offered
monthly youth events, Feeding the Community Projects, Homegirl Huddle (empowering young girls) and
Joshua’s Army (empowering young boys), Blankets of Love (for the homeless) and partnered with
Brighter Tomorrows Women Shelter. With God’s favor we relocated to a facility in Grand Prairie, Texas.
2014 -We continued the mission of the vision given to Pastor Ross and God increased us in membership
and leadership. 2015 -Our first class opened for training Deacons and Evangelist. 2016 -Pastor Ross
ordained, 1 Deacon and 2 Evangelist. 2017 –We had our first 3-day revival with a Venue Jam (a night for
