About Us

Welcome to the International Word Center (IWC), a ministry dedicated to the maturing of the Body of Jesus Christ for the work of the ministry.

We are excited that you have joined us and that you desire to develop a deeper relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We look forward to helping you to grow in your walk with God.

History of the International Word Center

The International Word Center was birth by God in the hearts of its founders Rick and Helen Washington. After praying for the direction that the ministry should go in, the vision of the ministry began to take on a clear shape and was incorporated as the International Word Center.

Our Goal

Our goal is to make sure that every person who is touched by this ministry is given the opportunity to know Who Christ is, to know who they are in Christ, and to grow up as mature believers in their relationship with the Lord.

The Need

There is a great need in the earth for believers in Jesus Christ to show forth the goodness of God. Without mature believers, the church is dysfunctional and God is not accurately represented. The world needs to see men, women, and young people who show forth the character and power of God.

The Purpose

God has anointed and assigned men and women to the five-fold ministry and appointed them as Apostles (those with a special message), Prophets (inspired leaders/teachers), Evangelists (traveling missionaries), Pastors (shepherds of God’s people), Teachers (trainers in righteousness).

Ephesians 4:8-16 states that the “way” that Believers in Christ Jesus, the Anointed One, will grow up, mature, and become complete is by being trained by anointed men and women who God has so gifted to supply what is needed to help them to grow up.

The purpose of IWC is to make available for believers that are earnestly seeking to grow in the things of God, the opportunity to experience the authentic and indisputable five-fold ministry gifts.

Our Assignment

IWC’s assignment is to provide events and make resources available to those who long for authentic Christianity.

Our directive from the Lord is to facilitate the “gifts of ministry” that Jesus gave for the purpose of equipping of the church and help the Body of Christ to grow up into mature, faith-filled Christians who know who they are, know what belongs to them, and know-how to attain all of the benefits of the covenant that we have been given as a result of the sacrifice that Christ Jesus has made for us all.
