Restoration Church International began with one salvation from a home visit. Joe and Rena were in a local church at the time and were sent out by their leadership to birth a ministry. The ministry began with the salvation of one and grew quickly in to a home Bible study. That meeting soon outgrew the home and was moved to a rented building on the Mileground in Morgantown, WV. Eighteen months later, with the growth of the congregation and changes in the property ownership, it became necessary to hold services in a local hotel conference room. That growth led then to the acquisition of a small church building located at 300 Highland Avenue (which is now ministry headquarters). Services were held there for eight years. After expanding to two services each Sunday, the congregation once again required more space. Motivated by the summer’s heat and a broken air conditioner, the congregation moved to the Ballroom at Ramada Inn in Morgantown, WV. After a few short weeks, the growth in attendance left the congregation with no choice but to continue, once again, to hold services in a hotel. RCI held services at Ramada Inn for over three years until acquiring its most recent location at 2198 Blue Horizon Drive (the facility formerly used by New Life Ministries). Restoration Church International has experienced continued growth since its beginning and we are looking forward to what God has next.
