Several years ago two such people Dr’s Harvey and Veronica Bee answered the call to ignite faith throughout the community. As a young married couple they faced obstacles that Satan tried to set, but their faith would not let them give up. They chose to commit their lives to the will of God and today they are a model for many, of what God can do when you’re committed to his will. Even when Dr. Bee was told that a non denominational ministry would not work in the Middle Georgia area, The Bee’s were not moved. They knew what really mattered had not changed, and God’s promise to build a ministry that will touch the lives of the lost and hurting would become a reality. While learning under the leadership of their spiritual father Dr. Willie L. Reid, Bishop and Dr. Veronica took the word that had been birthed inside of them and got to work.
It was one of their biggest most trying faith endeavors, from humble beginnings with just 6 members in their living room on military base housing The Winning Church was born. In December 1992 Doctor Bee learned of an available church on 322 Curtis St. that was for sale. The building was purchased and the first service was held on December 31, 1992. God blessed and TWC grew at a rapid rate. In November 1994, the church purchased over 8 acres of land located at Ignico and Walnut Street, with a vision of building a church with a seating capacity for 1200 people. By the time it was paid off in November 1995, its 225 people capacity was already exceeded. The land at Ignico was paid off in less than one year. In February 1999, the SAC President and Pastor of TWC, Pastor Harvey Bee announced that there was a need for a Christian Tutoring Program in the Warner Robins community.
Even when Dr. Bee was told that a non denominational ministry would not work in the Middle Georgia area, The Bee’s were not moved.
The First Lady of The Winning Church, First Lady Veronica Bee, having faithfully executed her responsibilities as a Home School Educator for the past three years, was empowered to research this idea of a Homeschoolers’ Group. She diligently pursued this effort with all her strength and maintained a positive attitude that she could “do all things through Christ who strengthens her.” From this motto, The Winning Academy was birthed and now has evolved to one of most successful private schools in Middle Georgia. In June 2000, TWC received a charter from Minnesota Graduate School of Theology to start Georgia Bible College (GBC) and the first classes started September 16, 2000, offering degree programs in Religious Studies and Counseling. Two additional campuses are now located in Macon and Milledgeville, Georgia.
On February 3, 2002, the TWC family celebrated its first service in their new church of 15,000 square feet, located at 621 Walnut Street, Warner Robins, Georgia – 100% financed by God’s people.
On February 19, 2012, Bishop & First Lady Bee along with the TWC family installed Pastor Rayfield and April Boyd Jr. as leaders of the TWC South Campus located in Perry, Georgia. However, this is just the beginning of what God has in store for The Winning Church, we are planning to purchase more land located on South Houston Lake Road to maximize our growth opportunities and continue our project of building a 60,000 sq. ft. Family Life Center to service the kingdom! Despite numerous trying times and unforeseen circumstances God has continued to smile upon this young church and has continued to shower us with his anointing and grace. And for this God, we give you honor, the glory and the praise.
