After spending 31 years in the denominational church and all its
activities, Mary Ann came to a test. In much seeking and prayer,
she began to realize there was more to Jesus than just being born
again, and she met Him as her Baptizer in the Holy Spirit.
It was after receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit that Mary Ann
began to proclaim, "He is Alive." Since 1972, she has been doing
that in churches, home-study groups, Full Gospel and Aglow
In November 1975, Mary Ann was licensed to the ministry of the
Gospel of Jesus by a Southern Baptist Church in Dallas, TX. Since
September 1980, she has been ordained by Evangelistic Center
Church in Kansas City, MO. God is now opening doors for her to
travel throughout the U.S. teaching at retreats, churches and
This ministry is being used of God to challenge others to be saved,
filled with the Baptism, delivered, healed and restored. A clear
word of truth and balance is brought forth through the teaching of
God's Word and a closer relationship with Jesus is established. She
will make you laugh and maybe even cry, but you will never forget
the ministry of healing Jesus does in your heart.
