Warri District covers Warri South LGA. The Church in Delta State started in Warri (lyara) as recorded earlier. Warri gave birth to Sapele, Ughelli , Abraka, Effurun, Ekpan, DSC and districts.The Church in Warri was pioneered  by pastor Onumegbu  and one unidentified literature who came to Warri as evangelists from the then East Nigeria Mission. Many of the foremost coverts to the church were majorly strangers from other parts of Nigeria who only came for one business or the other but never stayed for long. This perhaps explains the little or no record about them. It is on record however that the church in Warri first had her recorded worship services in late Elder Roland Faka’s parlour at 14 Esisi Street, Warri before the construction of the thatched hut were Odibo Church is situated today.
Odibo Church   is the first organized church in Delta. Warri District today has 3 organised churches and 2 companies with a membership of 520.
