Good News Church was founded in 1984 under the direction of the late Bishop Dorothy W. Washington. She served as Senior Pastor for 31 years and was also the Apostle (Overseer) of the church. Bishop Washington was often referred to as God’s Five-Star General, yet she was compassionate and as gentle as a dove. She was a trailblazer who worked as a “Deborah” for many. Her lasting testimony was that she would have fainted (lost heart) had she not believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living (Psalm 27:13). Bishop Washington was a Georgia native and has one son, three grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
On January 31, 2016, Pastor Dr. Rickie L. White was installed as Senior Pastor of Good News Church. He is also the pastor of Oasis Christian Center Church, 7110 Raymond Street, Houston, TX. With the Oasis, we are now “One Church, Two Locations!” This is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes.
