Bishop Paul Ojeda received his calling in 1997 after experiencing a personal encounter with God. After overdosing on cocaine, he literally saw the pit of hell and cried out for God to save him. With all His gracious mercy, the Lord brought him back to Life. After faithfully serving for several years in their church, they were called by God to Austin, Texas in 2004 to fulfill the vision He had given them. Austin Powerhouse Church was started at Alonzo’s Tacos with only 5 people. Today it has grown to reach 1200+ souls - with more to come!
In 2009, Paul Ojeda was ordained as a Bishop by his mentor, Bishop Kenneth Phillips of Promiseland Church. Bishop Paul Ojeda sits on the board of the Pastor's Strategy Council. Through this partnership, he and other pastors strategize concerning the needs in the greater Austin area.
Austin Power House Church has an amazing mentorship program! Men and women attend life groups throughout the week all over Austin. Youth (6th-12th grade) meet twice a week to discuss issues such as friends, school, home, addictions and personal matters. We believe this gives them the opportunity to heal before they are consumed with anger and unforgiveness - which can cause them to retaliate.
Our ministry is available to the community for counseling, mentoring and spiritual guidance. We have an Encounter Retreat for men, women youth and children. The Encounter is where marriages are healed, lives are transformed and families are saved from the statics of divorce and single-parent homes. Men find their place in their home and women are able to nurture their loved ones. Bishop Ojeda teaches the principles and patterns of a Godly family - which is a reflection of God’s word and love.
Bishop Ojeda’s family welcomes you home as a member to our family.
