House of Triumph Ministries also known as H.O.T., a ministry, founded by Pastors Stephen & Jenelle Thompson, is redefining how church is done.   


Located in the Kensington section of Philadelphia, H.O.T. ministries is focused on outreach: feeding the poor & clothing the naked. They feel that showing the love of God without any "hidden agenda" is what is needed in a world that has been skeptical of the church.  In other words, showing "Love In Action".


Our mission is To give people the tools, tactics and techniques to triumph over every test today.





In 2000, Pastor Stephen became dedicated to and active in the ministry. He began to pursue God’s will for his life instead of his own.  He has held the offices of Deacon, Superintendent of the Sunday school and Minister.  In August 2009, he was ordained as a Pastor.


As the Senior Pastor at House of Triumph, Pastor Stephen teaches with great passion and intensity. He has a genuine heart and love for God's people and strives to equip them to overcome challenges they may face along the journey.


Pastor Jenelle, a licensed and ordained Pastor, has a passion for music.  She is a radical praiser and a pure worshiper.  She has been called to prophetically heal through praise and worship. She has been empowered to teach God’s people about true intimacy with The Father.
