Hope Family Church is a new church plant in the city of Covina, CA, started by Pastor Chad Meza along with his wife Cynthia and their son Micah. The church was planted from Warrior Center Christian Fellowship in Bellflower, CA in March 2016 – and is a part of Praise Chapel Christian Fellowship.
Praise Chapel Christian Fellowship began with one church in Maywood, CA in 1976, when Pastors Mike and Donna Neville moved to the Los Angeles area from Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The area that surrounded the church was gang and drug infested. However, within a few years, God began to move in a very special way as gang members and their families began to be saved. Soon the church was filled with people on fire for God who went outside the church, into the streets and neighborhoods, preaching the Gospel and seeing souls saved.
Following what God was doing, Mike and Donna began to train pastors and send them out into the various areas of Los Angeles to start new churches. God blessed these new pastors and churches as they reached the unsaved and unchurched people.
Today Praise Chapel has multiplied into many areas of the United States and the world. With over 200 churches in the United States, and hundreds more in over 13 nations, Praise Chapel has become a “Family of Fellowships”. On any given Sunday, tens of thousands of people are lifting their hearts and hands in worship through the outreach of Praise Chapel.
At Hope Family Church, we are continuing the work that God has been doing in Praise Chapel, and we are starting a new work in Covina, to see the people in this area give their lives over to the Lord, and inherit the greatest gift of all, eternal life.
