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 just a Friday night gathering of believers, later named The River. As more people heard about The River, we began to have an influx of addicts and alcoholics attending our Friday night services. The more we aimed to help the people who were coming to us, the more we saw that there was a great need for a women’s recovery home in the CSRA that could assist not only women, but their children as well. That is when Katherine’s Way was born. As Katherine’s Way grew and developed, more women began getting sober and having their lives and families restored. Then we began to have men coming to us in search of a similar program. Thus, we opened the doors to ICU. Otherwise known as Intensive Care Unit Recovery.
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 began to see that some of the help that they were in need of was more than just food and prayer- they needed practical assistance as well. Some of the graduates from our ICU program came up with a handy-man service in order to meet the needs. And so we started His Hands.
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.

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!
