After she acknowledged her true calling. Not only was our Dr. Moton called to the ministry, but a mantel of prophecy was placed on her life, which now she operates in her prophetic gift. What a mighty God we serve, eyes have not seen; ears have not heard what God has in store for her. Through it all, Dr. Moton never left God’s grace, He taught her through trials that He is an almighty God and that her exalted scripture Isaiah 54:17 stands true “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper”.
Before starting our great ministry God called Dr. Moton to evangelize in her hometown. The door of the evangelistic field was opened through her sister, Sis. Bobbie Wallace. Dr. Moton set up outreach ministries in Denby Center on Hickory Street in LaMone’ Gardens on Pine Street in Inkster, where her husband assisted in funding with the food for the ministry. she led many souls to Christ and many were converted, about 45 or more were baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ. Dr. Moton went out preaching the word of God at Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church in Eastman, Georgia. There 18 souls including the pastor and two of his deacons were baptized in Jesus name, and the first Lady received the Holy Spirit in that service. Now the church has been renamed Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Holiness church; we thank God for the call of evangelism on her. Our Dr. Moton received a release by way of Prophetic word from Bishop Hugh Smith while he was ministering at Greater Grace Temple in Taylor. God awakened her one night with the name Greater Works Deliverance Ministries Int'l Inc., after which the Lord used Elder Jeffrey Moton to give her a word of knowledge and confirmation about taking her ministry to another level. she heard God in the month of August the year 2000, to go to her pastor to release her to go to into the vineyard.
During the last week of July 2001 Dr. Moton started the first service of Greater Works Deliverance Ministries Int'l Inc. with only six people in attendance: Sis. Jacqueline Wallace (sister) Samuel Wallace (son), Tenija Moton, Tiara Moton and Temperance Moton her daughters and one other sister in the Lord. Dr. Moton preaches the unadulterated Word of God, in which many can testify that their lives have been changed and marriages healed through her ministry. She has a sincere heart for her congregation and a desire for the manifestation of power, of the Word of God. God has added a host of faithful members to this great fellowship.
