Rev. Rosita Dozier

Administrative Pastor

Rosita Dozier's life changed when she gave her life to Christ. That event set her life on a path of studying and learning all that she could about God and his son the Lord Jesus Christ.

The first six years were set aside for intensive spiritual training, which included learning how to pray, how to study the scripture, outreach, teaching and full time ministry. The overall focus of the training was to overcome the world, the flesh and the devil. Thus living the overcoming life is more than a concept to Rosita, it is a way of life.

Teaching women is her top priority, and she has conducted bible studies for over twenty years. She's written articles for church newsletters, helped pastors put oral messages into print and edited several books. As an author, Her first book is entitled “There is a Message to the Overcomer”, published by Xulon Press.  Her newest release is "From the Farmhouse To A Powerhouse" An overcomers journey to the double portion, published by Christian Faith Publishers.   She writes often and looks forward to writing many more books to the glory of God.

Sheldon knew he was called to ministry after seeing a news paper article about a child who died in a drowning accident at the same age as he was when he drowned.  “It hit me”, he said “why am I here, what was the difference between that kid and me.”
So after praying and really thinking about it, the revelation came.  He is here to make a difference.
 
He is here to be an agent of change and make a difference to advance the Kingdom of God.  Once receiving that revelation in 2016, he has put God first and really lived out Matthew 6:33,  “seeking first the kingdom of God.”
