​History making came for Berean Church happened when Sister Ford accepted God’s call on her life, preached her trial sermon and was charged and licensed by Pastor Ford and Berean Church to go forth and preach the gospel, do the work of an evangelist and make full proof her ministry.
Her boldness to teach God’s word is evident as she exhorts and encourages listeners to reach a deeper level of intimacy through prayer, character building and reconciliation.
Nationally and internationally God has opened doors for Sister Ford allowing her gifts to make room for her as she minister in:
  • Las Vegas, Nevada Church for women retreat and Sunday morning worship under the leadership of Greater Carver Pastor, Reverend Alphonse McCloed. 
  • Guatemala City, Guatemala, Sister Ford was honored to minister alongside Marilyn Hickey and Sarah Bowling, founding Pastor of Marilyn Hickey ministries, in Denver, Colorado.

  • Cairo, Egypt, the land of Moses, she ministered aboard a ship down the Nile River as the hunger for God’s presence increased with each night.
  • Indonesia, located in Southeast Asia, has the world’s largest Hindu Temple and Muslim population; a land known for its temples, shrines and stone idols. Demons screamed as Gods Power went forth to the Hindus, Muslims, the poor as well as the wealthy. Many lives were transformed throughout Indonesia by the power of God. 
  • Costa Rica, a city wide healing meeting and women mentoring session at Centro Evangelistic Church.
  • Beijing and Hong Kong, China, Sister Ford traveled with Marilyn Hickey Ministry to a leadership conference ministering to young pastors and leaders from the underground churches there. 
Her character is a life of integrity; she knows that all things are from God, who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to himself and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation that by the word and deed our aim is to bring other into harmony with Him.
