HISTORY

Raise His Praise International ministries was founded in 2000 by Pastors Neville and Donnella Billy who responded to the call of God upon their lives to reach people around the world with the hopeful message of a 'loving God, loving People.' 

They have traveled and ministered individually throughout America, Europe, Canada, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, with multi-level gifting as conference speaker, prophet, singer, musician and song writer.

 

Raise His Praise Church was subsequently established as a base for its international ministries to operate from and to create a loving and caring local Church for people from all walks of life to feel welcomed and loved. 

Every Sunday people from across metro Atlanta attend the vibrant and contemporary Worship Services with inspiring and user-friendly sermons that are easily implemented into daily routines and applied to life's challenges, enabling them to experience and enjoy the abundant life that Jesus Christ provides for every human, irrespective of who we are, what we've done in our past or what we're struggling with in our present.

Healing is often experienced by those who are suffering from various physical illnesses as well as emotional and stressful conditions.
