Our History

In addition, Impact Church is also a part of a larger family of churches, called Word of Faith International Ministries. This family of churches originates from Word of Faith International Christian Center in Southfield, Michigan, which was founded by Bishop Keith A. Butler in 1979. Today Bishop Butler, along with his wife Minister Deborah Butler and his son Pastor Keith A. Butler II, pastor the church.
 
Before becoming pastor of Impact Church, Pastor Crawford served as the youth pastor and an assistant pastor under Bishop Davis for eight (8) years after graduating from the Word of Faith Bible Training Center in Detroit, Michigan. In July 2001, he and the former Minister Rhonda Thompson from Word of Faith – Grand Rapids, Michigan married and joined together in ministry in Florida. They gave birth to their first child Anthony Dean Crawford, II in April 2004. At the same time God called them out to plant a work in the South, Florida area. On August 15, 2004, with the blessing of their leadership, that part of the vision became a reality as Impact Church held it’s inaugural service at the Hilton Garden Inn in Dania Beach, Florida. Later that year Impact Church secured its first building, a 7,000 sq ft. facility in Hollywood, Florida. The first service in the new building was held on December 24, 2004, where IC continues to minister to God’s people of all ages, cultures, nationalities and backgrounds by providing ministry to the entire family.
