About 143 Ministries
143 Ministries International is a multi-faceted organization, covered by one name but consisting of several different smaller ministries. 143 started with a Friday night gathering of believers; later named The River. As more people heard about The River, an influx of addicts and alcoholics began attending the Friday night service. We saw there was a great need for a women’s recovery home in the CSRA that could assist not only women, but their families as well. That is when Katherine’s Way was born. As Katherine’s Way grew and developed, many women obtained sobriety and their lives and families were restored. Shortly after Katherine's Way opened, we began to have men coming to us in search of a similar program. Thus, we opened the doors to Immanuel House. It was established using the same fundamentals as the women’s program.
As 143 continues to grow, God is constantly changing our means of helping the community. We have several small-groups that meet weekly at our headquarters location. These include prayer nights, recovery meetings and youth groups. When COVID-19 affected the world, God pushed us into action and we started feeding the community- not knowing what that would look like. That mission grew and turned into another ministry of its own, Fishes & Loaves. As we were helping these families we saw they needed more than prayer and food - they needed practical assistance as well. With this in mind, our handy-man ministry His Hands was created to assist low-income families and those in need. His Hands not only services the community, but it is a venue to create job opportunities for some of our men that graduate the Immanuel House program.
143 Ministries is not just a church organization. It is a way of life. We are a body of believers who live our life daily seeking the Holy Spirit and His will for our lives. We were saved from our infirmities, and now we aim to love others through theirs.
Mission & Vision
Our mission is to walk in the fullness of Christ in such a way that others will desire and seek the hope we carry for themselves.

143 Ministries International was birthed from the personal ministry of Cliff and Ana Nobles. 143, which actually means "I Love You," is a number that has followed them for years. Through incarcerations and addiction, deliverance and freedom, and now giving back to others who are in the same situation they once were, God has continuously proven His love for them and reminded them of it by placing the number 143 in sight as a constant reminder of His love. Their desire is to show others that same love and constant reminder that no matter how far one may fall, with God there's always still hope!
