About us - meet the leadership
Andrew and Lisa Gogbashian - the senior leaders of Inherit Life Church
Welcome to Inherit Life Church website. I hope you come visit our church or enjoy the teaching resources you find here. Please also do get in touch with us with any questions or prayer requests you may have. I want to introduce myself and Andrew to you. We are the senior leaders of the church and we have a great pastoral team. Indeed all of our church community are a pioneering group of people from all different backgrounds who share our vision to see people come to know the love of God through our Saviour Jesus Christ!
So a bit about us…Andrew and I both grew up in church. I started off in my childhood years in a lovely small Church of England church and had wonderful Sunday school teachers. However most of our church life from teenage years through to adulthood was in Iranian and Armenian Church fellowships – sister congregations, where I was involved in worship, Sunday school and finally preaching ministry. This was where Andrew and I met each other and it was a great experience for us, being in community with believers from predominantly Muslim Iranian backgrounds who had come to know the Lord Jesus through the bold testimony of others or from Jesus Himself appearing to them in visions and dreams. We were inspired by their love and devotion to the Lord in the midst of dangerous persecution.
We both had a ministry call early on and I started a Christian Union in my secondary school which was a girls school of majority Jewish background, and shared the gospel with many students, who were often hearing for the first time about Jesus their Messiah. It was a blessed time! Andrew, while in halls of residence at university also attended Kensington Temple, a large Pentecostal Elim church round the corner. With them he went street preaching and began to move in words of knowledge and prophetic ministry.
After 25 years in Iranian Armenian fellowship, the Lord told us it was time to move. After fond farewells, we attended a local charismatic church. We quickly came to love the people. It was our first experience together of being part of an international community of believers and we witnessed the love, fervour and desire to bring the good news of Jesus to the local community. The Lord showed us both however that this would not be our home for long and after only two and a half years He spoke to us that it was time to embark on a new ministry, a house church fellowship. In summer 2015 Inherit Life Church began with my sister Yvonne, her husband Haig and our children. The next few years were a very useful maturing time for Andrew and I and indeed all those who came as we delved deeper into the Word of God and allowed Him to shape us for ministry. I wrote a book called Decoding Grace and we held a few conferences also to encourage and teach and saw the Lord do mighty things in our midst with miracle healings, supernatural pregnancy testimonies and many other demonstrations of His love and goodness. As a house church we enjoyed great fellowship with each other and embarked on local outreaches together.
In late 2019, the Lord began to stir our hearts that our house church season was coming to an end and that it was time to move into a local community venue and reach out on a regular basis. And so began our next season! On January 19th 2020 we held our first service in Sunnyfields school (in Hendon, North West London) and are excited for this next adventure with the Lord.
We believe Jesus is going to draw many people unto Himself and bring redemption, hope, healing, restoration and abundant life! We invite you to come and visit us and be a part of our journey. We are a non- denominational church, but we love the wider body of Christ. The Lord Jesus is the Captain of His church and we are privileged to preach His Kingdom and see Him move in people’s lives.
