First Watch Ministries by the leading of the Holy Spirit was founded by Janelle Wood on April 18, 2004.  The Lord laid it on Janelle's heart to "go get his saints in the streets who had forgotten they were saints due to the lies they had been told by society."  

The Lord based First Watch Ministries on the Scripture of Ephesians 4:11-12, "And he gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ."  

The Lord made it very clear that we were to go the park were we serve every Sunday and share with the people who were there that Jesus loves them and He has sent us to remind them of whose they are--His!
