On December 1st, 2018, South Florida welcomed Life Changing Anointing of Fort Lauderdale, the new church plant of Life Changing Anointing International — Miramar, pastored by two of South Florida’s most creative and spirit-filled husband and wife duo's, Apostle Glenton & Co-Pastor Delpha Samuels. The Samuels' are no strangers to ministry as Apostle and Co-Pastor Samuels have both served in various roles at Life Changing Anointing International and beyond.
Serving in ministry 16 years prior, ranging from a Minister of the Gospel and growing in ranks to become a Bishop in the Lord's Church, Apostle Samuels was installed as senior pastor of our headquarters church in December of 2012, where he served faithfully for 6 years, alongside his wife, Pastor Delpha Samuels, who not only served faithfully as an ordained evangelist and their First Lady, but as the Executive Director of Women.
With the full support and encouragement of their Covering Apostles, Drs. Garfield & D.L. Stephenson and the LCA International family, the Samuels were sent out to plant Life Changing Anointing of Fort Lauderdale on December 1, 2018. The beginnings were prolific and powerful. From an interest meeting in August 2018 led by Apostle Glenton & Co-Pastor Delpha Samuels, to the inaugural service on December 1, 2018, where over 1,000 individuals gathered for the official launch, the Lord has been in the midst of every step that has allowed the fabric of what we will become to be woven together.
Through impartation from our headquarters in Miramar and a collective hunger from people across the Fort Lauderdale and North Broward areas, the momentum has been consistent and powerful as world changers gather in preparation for doing just that: changing the world. Though Life FTL is only almost two years old, our headquarters in Miramar, FL has existed since May of 2007, under the apostolic leadership of Bishop Dr. Garfield & Apostle Dr. D.L. Stephenson. As a whole, the culture of Life Changing Anointing churches have the DNA of being dynamic New Testament congregations with a vision and mission centered on discipling families, raising up world leaders, and social transformation.
Our services are marked by powerful praise and worship expressions, strong prayer, and revelatory teaching through the Word of God. It is a place where everybody belongs and where we are committed to developing strong covenant relationship to see our world radically changed. With that, Life Changing Anointing of Fort Lauderdale has a supernatural vision. It’s a God-sized vision. We believe that God wants to use our church to help turn Fort Lauderdale — a city that stands in the need of revival within its morality, political climate, and violence — back to the heart of the Father. We want to be an impact; not just another church on the corner participating in weekly service with no fingerprint or DNA for change. We believe that God wants to use our church to raise the dead, to turn spiritually dead people into worshippers of the risen and reigning Jesus who are passionate to see others meet, enjoy, and follow Jesus.
