Healing Place Church – Origin:
In 1992, the founding Pastors of Healing Place Church, Dino and Delynn Rizzo, felt a call from God to express Jesus to the Baton Rouge community in creative, practical ways.
They did not want to be the best church IN the city, but rather to be the best church FOR the city.
One night over dinner, Pastor Dino began to describe the vision that God had given him for this new church plant. Mrs. Dee Austin, Pastor Dino’s mother-in-law, spoke up and said, “It sounds like you are describing a healing place for a hurting world.”
Soon after, God opened the door for the Rizzos to take over a small church facility on Highland Road and start Trinity Christian Center: A Healing Place For A Hurting World.
On December 6, 1992, Healing Place Church held its first gathering with just a dozen people in attendance, shortly after that, Healing Place Church began holding church services in January 1993.
Looking for ways to serve the community, Healing Place Church began to do just about anything it could to be that healing place.
From helping widows to move houses, to passing out free rat bait – the mandate of Healing Place Church was being realized.
God grew Healing Place Church so much that they outgrew the church building!
In 1994, Healing Place Church was able to purchase 6 acres of land at 19202 Highland Rd.
This move increased the capacity of Healing Place Church to be a healing place for a hurting world.
