About AHOW Houston TX

We are pleased to announce that Agape House of Worship in Houston, Texas (AHOW Houston) is launching soon. We are trusting God to commence our weekly services before the end of the year. AHOW Houston is a church plant and a daughter church of the Agape House of Worship in Roselle, New Jersey (AHOWNJ), under the Apostolic leadership of Pastor Jide Lawore. My wife and I were privileged to serve as leaders in various capacities at AHOWNJ for a few years before the Lord brought us to Texas. We are excited to accept this call to plant another expression of AHOW in the greater Houston area. We are currently in the preparation and prayer phase of the church plant. Our goal is to build a church where everyone is welcomed and inspired to do and be their best for God to be glorified. Please feel free to contact us for any questions, prayers, or to be a part of what God is doing in the greater Houston area.
