Blessed Sundays | 10 AM - 12:30 PM
(Livestream begins Sundays 9:45 AM)
Blessed's History | Co-lead pastors, Ryan and Joanne Lee, both grew up in the Presbyterian Church most of their lives. Ryan was serving in a Korean-American mega church in Anaheim, California as a youth pastor and teacher for almost 10 years when God radically changed everything. In November, 2003, God called Ryan and Joanne through a powerful visitation from the Holy Spirit and made it clear that He wanted them to be a part of an end-time move of God that will touch all the nations. A small group of people started gathering in their living room to seek the Lord’s will.
After praying for over six months every morning, on May 16, 2004, the Lord clearly spoke and confirmed His promise from Genesis 12:1-3 and gave that as a covenant to Ryan and Joanne:
Get out of your country, from your family, and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.
Though they did not have a full understanding of what this covenant meant, they obeyed the voice of the Lord and resigned from their previous church to wait for the Lord’s assignment.
Thereafter, exactly nine months from the initial visitation of the Holy Spirit, on August 15, 2004, God birthed Blessed International in Ryan and Joanne’s living room with just a few people. By His goodness, faithfulness. and mercy, the Lord has been leading Blessed to be a blessing to families in Orange County, and He has used Blessed to touch many nations and missionaries to be revived and restored by the power of the Holy Spirit.
As of November 2018, Blessed International has approximately 143 Blessed churches and equipping centers in eleven nations, including: U.S.A., Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Ghana, Burkina Faso, India, S. Korea, and Germany.
