About Dr. Rickey Singleton
The Apostle of Grace and Supernatural Empowerment
“that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:17-18 (Amplified Bible)
Dr. Rickey Singleton, Pastor & Teacher of The Spirit of Grace Church, received his calling to the Pastoral office at the tender age of eighteen, when he subsequently founded and organized The Whole Truth Pentecostal Church of God in Harvey, Illinois. However, the life and direction of what Pastor Singleton would preach was forever transformed, after the intention of God manifested in his life at 1:00 a.m., when the Grace message was revealed to him while reading E.W. Kenyon’s book, “The Two Kinds of Righteousness.” The scripture that exploded within him bringing revelation light into his spirit was 2nd Corinthians 5:21, “For he hath made him to be sin for us who knew no sin: that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
Pastor Rickey Singleton’s natural savvy in radio broadcasting was a strong catalyst in the hand of God in making his name become prominent and well known. He flourished in his following and notoriety through his pioneering signature and powerful radio broadcasts. Pastor Singleton’s passion and commitment for empowering people as well as his keen leadership skill was recognized at a very young age and from the age of 18, was confirmed many times over in his sweatless ability to attract a large following in a very short time. Based on the revelatory scripture that transformed his life and ministry, and backed up by an overwhelming demand from the general public, in 1984, he established The Word of Faith Fellowship in Chicago, Illinois. With a strong foundation in prayer and an unusual anointing for signs and wonders, Word of Faith Fellowship saw tremendous growth while being established in the Grace of God.
Having outgrown the facility on the Southern end of Chicago, God opened the door for the Word of Faith Fellowship to move in to a larger facility at a new location; 12844 South Halsted Street, in the metropolitan area of Chicago. This address proved to be the foundation for the Grace Message and manifestations of personal empowerment. At this location, there were 3,000 active members and the active services expanded to 7 services per week. A strong growth in the message of the Grace of God was witnessed through documented signs, wonders and miracles too many to mention, such as the dead being raised up during the services. This added undeniable weight and credibility to the teaching ministry of Pastor Rickey Singleton, and the Word of Faith Fellowship, exceedingly so, to where, in 1996, Pastor Rickey Singleton was bestowed a Doctor of Divinity degree from Friends International Christian University, a Word of Faith Bible Institute Affiliate.
Today, Dr. Rickey Singleton is charged by God to take the everlasting and life transforming message of the Grace of God to the city, the nation and the world and He being a pioneer in bringing the message of Grace and the good works of purpose and supernatural empowerment to the church. Based upon a revelation given in one of his sermons, Dr. Singleton was led to change the church’s name to, “The Spirit Of Grace Church International” also known as, The Grace Church, a bold branch of the Body of Christ armed with a likeminded corporate purpose: to supernaturally reveal God’s purpose and plan, to dispense His gifts of Grace to all, so that God can get the glory that is due to his name.
2nd Timothy 1:9 declares; “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.”The Grace Reformation has indeed begun here at the The Spirit of Grace Church International!
