Faith Consulate, formerly World Impact Ministries (WIM), resulted from the desire that God placed in Pastor Ben to impact the world and draw the unregenerate man to Jesus through evangelism and kingdom-based teachings. On June 27, 2007, WIM was incorporated in the State of North Carolina. In July 2007, the business of WIM began with the recording of the television broadcast, Impacting Your World with Ben & Joy, a weekly television broadcast which teaches fundamental truths while providing practical steps to implement those truths. The first broadcast aired on the ION network, on September 6, 2007.
On August 7, 2010, an information meeting was held to introduce the expansion of the ministry into a local assembly . The expansion began in the latter part of 2010 with Thursday night bible study held at the home of Ben & Joy Simmons. Sunday morning worship services began in March 2011.
In September 2011, Sunday morning worship and Thursday night bible study were moved to the conference room of Liberty Tax Service, a business owned by Ben & Joy Simmons, in Spring Lake, NC. On January 13, 2012, WIM moved the Sunday morning worship service to the gymnasium of Spring Lake Middle School in Spring Lake, NC.
In November 2014, we purchased our first property located at 4820 Rosehill Road Fayetteville, NC. After renovating a portion of the property, we held our first service in our current location on January 4, 2015. This property allows us to present the message of the Kingdom of God to adults, youth, and children in their own space, thus providing a more fulfilling worship experience for each member of the family.
In June 2016, World Impact Ministries became Faith Consulate, A Church with World Impact. The name change and tag line reflects who we are and not just what we do. A consulate is a governmental agency of one country whose purpose is to look after the commercial interests and welfare of its citizens in another country. So, Faith Consulate is a church that represents the Kingdom of God here on earth, reclaiming the earth and all of its resources, while shepherding and discipling its citizens, the born-again believer. At The Consulate, you will find a warm, welcoming, and relaxing environment that is designed to meet your needs and bring you to your destiny so that you can impact the world.
Faith Consulate is a member of Faith Ministries Alliance founded by Dr. Bill Winston. Faith Ministries Alliance is an organization of churches and ministries dedicated to promoting ministry excellence and equipping leadership to fulfill their God given vision.
