In the year 1986, the Lord began dealing with Elder Marian Rudd regarding the role of Pastor. Being a very humble woman of God, she did not want to assume such a great responsibility. She travailed before the Lord for two years seeking divine guidance and wisdom to begin this work. It was on Friday, February 5, 1988 at 6:25 p.m. that the first meeting was called and Bibleway United Holy Church was organized. The first service would be held on Sunday March 6, 1988 at the Ryland’s Funeral Home Chapel, 9 West 30th Street in Wilmington, DE. On that Sunday, communion was served and the Lord greatly moved in the service.
