Harold Calvin Ford took another walk of faith on April 14 when he was ordained as a minister. At the same time, he became pastor of Choice Christian Worship Center of Daytona Beach.
“I’m really excited. It’s a lot of responsibility, more than I ever thought I’d have, but I’m looking forward to progressing the will of God,” Ford told the Daytona Times.
Prior to his ordination, Ford served as a deacon and worked alongside his wife, Prophetess Deborah Ford, in ministry.
The Fords also are the hosts of Gospel Hallelujah World Wide Radio Ministries, which airs Saturdays and Sundays on WPUL 1590 AM. Each year, they host a concert featuring Florida chapters of the Gospel Music Workshop of America.
‘It is a choice’
Ford’s wife called this “an opportunity to build not only the Choice Christian Center but the community as well. He is more than capable of doing what he has been called to do. We can spread our wings a little further, touch more people.”
A churche in the Lake Helen area will be coming under the ministry of the Fords with another church opening soon in the North Florida area.
“It’s an overwhelming feeling to have him as pastor. Anytime the church can grow, more souls will be saved,” Prophetess Ford noted.
Added Pastor Ford, “We’re looking for Kingdom builders. “We are looking for people who want to work for the kingdom. What we are trying to do is help people with the choice, to understand it is a choice and God gives us the opportunity to be saved.”
Bishop Will Potter of Mount Calvary Assembly, Daytona Beach, conducted last Sunday’s ordination service.
