Ekklesia Family Life and Worship Center held its first board meeting in the District Heights, Maryland home of Overseer Stephanie Stratford and her husband, Thomas, the summer of 2007. Shortly thereafter, Ekklesia opened its doors to serve the community and the Body of Christ at 9244 East Hampton Drive, Suite 620, Capitol Heights, Maryland on Sunday, September 2, 2007.
Ekklesia was consecrated and Overseer Stratford was installed as Pastor on Sunday, January 6, 2008 by Galilee Baptist Church of Suitland, Maryland, led by Pastor Lloyd T. McGriff, D.Min. Since that momentous occasion, Ekklesia has continued to increase in attendance at Sunday morning worship service and Thursday evening Bible study.
Due to a water main break in January 2011, our building in Capitol Heights was destroyed and the Lord blessed us to move into our temporary worship place located at 3701 Meadowview Drive, Suitalnd, MD, where we continued to grow in numbers and the things of God. On December 4, 2011, Ekklesia dedicated its new church home located at 4205 37th Street, Brentwood, MD.
As God continues to guide us and grant us favor, the Ekklesia family remains committed to fulfill its mission: "To equip believers, restore families, transform the community and win souls for Christ. " We are transforming lives for the Kingdom of God.
