SW: Tell us about your ministry

My Ministry is three fold.

 Program Director and Founder of the Daughters of Zion-Woman of Destiny Transformational Wellness Mentorship Program. This is a newly formed Non-Profit Corporation and Mentorship Program, in the South Florida area designed to teach, transform, refine, and empower young ladies into women of destiny. The program is called “Daughters of Zion- Woman of Destiny Transformational Wellness & Mentorship Program.” It is a Five (5) Month Training, motivational, and developmental mentorship program teaching ethics, core values, etiquette, and social skills. The program emphasis is on the internal and external developmental principles of wellness, social graces, etiquette, deportment, communication skills, financial management, basic nutrition, physical fitness and intimate mentoring interactions. The primary focus of the program is to help transform young ladies into powerful creative women of destiny focusing on the “whole woman…body, soul and spirit.” The emphasis is taken from Titus 2, where the older women are encouraged to train the younger women on how to be women of noble character and grace. We are teaching ladies how to become women of excellence wherever they are called to function. Most are in preparation for marriage, community outreach, ministry, the arts and business opportunities in the marketplace. DOZ-WOD is a biblically based program using as the scriptural basis; Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts (plans) that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not evil to give you a future and hope.”  Romans: 8:30 “For whom He called He predestined, these He also called whom He called, these He also justified and whom He justified these He glorified. ” Titus 2: 3-4 “Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live not to be slanderous or addictive to wine but to teach what is good. They should urge the younger women to love their husbands and children to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind and to be subject to their husband, so that no one will malign the word of God.”                                                                                                         

After completion of this program all participants showcase what they have learned in a fabulous 1st class “Coming out High Tea Party,” where they are presented to family and friends upon completion of the program. Hats, gloves, pearls, and all. The Daughter of Zion team consists of 14 fourteen powerful Women that are Professionals, Doctors, lawyers, Educators, and entrepreneurs or Ministers of the Gospel. Operating under His grace, power, and anointing to teach, refine, mentor and help catapult participants into purpose as “Daughters of the King in the process of becoming Women of Destiny.”

In 2006 DOZ was first formed as a prophetic intercessory prayer group of women who interceded for nations, leaders, the body of Christ and individual families. In 2015 we launched out to minister to the needs of several young ladies requesting mentorship.  The Lord directed us to launch our first Mentorship program as a 3-4-month pilot program with 15 Mentees and 8 Mentors culminating into the 1st ever Commemorative Hight Tea Graduation event to a sold-out crowd of 215 attendees at Jacaranda Club in Plantation, Florida. The keynote speaker was Dr. Roslyn Artis President of Florida Memorial University.  In 2016 DOZ-WOD transformed into a full 5-month program, May-October with eighteen (18) Mentees and fourteen (14) Mentors. Once again, a sold out Commemorative High Tea Graduation event at The Carolina Country Club with 285 persons in attendance with Dr. Belinda, the Editor and publisher of Shulamite Women Magazine as our keynote speaker.  This year DOZ-WOD is the recipient of   several social and governmental commendations; Ms. Shirley Feliz, representing Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, indicated that the Congresswoman would read the commendation acknowledging the DOZ-WOD program and event into the Congressional Record, which makes the commendation significantly unique. In addition to the Congressional Commendation, the Prime Minister of the Bahamas, Hon. Perry G. Christie, Commissioner Dennis C. Moss of Miami, Commissioner Dale V. C. Holness, Broward County, and Joyce Bryan, Vice Mayor, Margate, each provided special commendations to the DOZ-WOD Program Director. DOZ-WOD Program also had an opportunity to conduct a special session in Aruba this June and is in the planning stages of conducting a mini program in Aruba and Nassau Bahamas in 2017.

Additionally, I am a recent author of a Book called “Dwelling in the Secret Place”  Intimacy with God through Prayer. It is a book on Prayer. It is as book on my intimate walk with God through Prayer and the significant impact prayer has had on my life and my calling as a Prophetic Intercessor, Teacher, Life Purpose Coach, Mentor & Writer. I share some of the principles that the Lord has taught me over the last 30 years of my spiritual journey. It is a practical book with experiential nuggets on What is prayer, Hindrance to prayer, the different types of prayers, prayers in relationships, the prayer watches Our Father prayers etc. The book also describes basic strategies for setting up a war room/prayer room, and intercessory prayer group. The book forward is written by Bishop Henry Fernandez of the Faith Center and features special quotes from numerous theologians on prayer in each chapter. The book was edited by my husband Minister Horace Hord Jr., and is dedicated to my late Father Donald W. Davis of which a school is named after in the Bahamas as well as my Spiritual father the late Dr. Myles Munroe.  The book has 12 chapters ending in specific prayers of declarations, it also has a companion work book to accompany it.  It is currently available on amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.

I am also a Certified Life Purpose Coach. My certification is through the Life Purpose Institute of San Diego California under the International Coach Federation. My practice as a Life Purpose Coach will be set up to assist clients in fulfilling their Destiny by, unlocking the Doors to Purpose and finding their Personal Truth! There are times in life that we seem to become stuck in time and circumstances not knowing who we are or what we are called to do. What is your purpose? As a Life Purpose coach, I will work with clients to help them become unstuck and to design a plan to begin to advance toward fulfilling their diviner purpose, whether it is in their career in the marketplace, in Ministry or in the arts.

How did this call come to fruition in your life?

My Call to  a Prophetic Intercessor, Teacher, writer and Ministry of the Gospel,  I believe, came about in my life in the midst of prayer. Having rededicated my life to the Lord, during trials, hurts, pain, shame, and brokenness, He extended His hand of love and healed, delivered and empowered me to launch out to teach and empower others to walk into their purpose and destiny.

You see at the age of 10 in a little roman Catholic church in the Bahamas I told the Lord I wanted to serve Him, but strayed far and wide over the world and in varies industries; tourism and hospitality, fashion, and the entertainment industry even Miss Universe in 1980. But I was empty and broken wearing many masks in the process.

Amid abusive relationship, low self-esteem, depression and a drunken stupor I cried out to God in October of 1997, He picked me up out of the mire and my journey of healing and transformation began. I traveled and lived in Toronto Canada, Vancouver British Columbia, Los Angeles California and lastly in Fort Lauderdale Florida. During this time the Lord guided me where I was able to receive sound biblical teaching, counselling, therapy  and inner healing.  This was not always an easy journey but by His grace “I am an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony.”  In the midst of depression and financial failures and the pain of abusive relationships, being held hostage and running for my life at gun-point, and numerous suicidal attempts, I was able to walk in wholeness.

 I was exposed to numerous Prophetic ministries, my spiritual Father was the late Dr. Myles Munroe and I was also mentored by Bishop Neil Ellis, Pastors Andre and Sandra Crouch, coached by Dr Cindy N. Trimm and sat under Bishop Clarence McClendon and currently with Bishop Henry Fernandez of The Faith Center International, where I serve along with my husband Horace Hord Jr. The last 10 years were spent in a consecrated life as sanctified single woman until the age of 50 when the Lord finally allowed my Boaz to find me as I was busy singing on the praise team with Jonathan Nelson at the Faith Center and teaching at The Henry Fernandez Biblical Institute. I married in 2010 to Horace C. Hord Jr., and we were ordained in 2012 as a Ministers of the gospel. Today I believe I finally launched out into my ordained purpose and have a passion to help others. The DOZ-WOZ Transformational Wellness Mentorship Program, was given to me while in consecration at home in the Bahamas six years ago, but now the acceptable time for this program to come to fruition during this season of my life along with my first book “Dwelling in the secret Place.”

SW: Share some of the difficulties and challenges you faced establishing this ministry.

I believe my whole life was in preparation of for this ministry, DOZ-WOD Mentorship program, to teach and flow as a prophetic intercessor, and author books. It was and still is not an easy task but I know the grace of God is on my life and the fulfillment I feel tells me I am in Purpose and it was worth it all! As the old hymn by John Newton Amazing Grace says, “Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come; Tis grace has bought me safe thus far, and grace shall lead me home.” It is Gods amazing grace that has kept me, His favor and guidance has divinely connected me with the right people to walk with me in this ministry and I have an awesome team that helps with the right Mentors, interested Mentees, some sponsorship and an understanding husband.  But to answer your question, my testimony speaks for itself, the difficulties and challenges dealt with during my journey have led me this far to fulfill my Purpose!

However, some challenges still exist relating to insufficient finances to fund this program, Mentors to assist with the Mentoring process, a production team etc.

SW: Share a word of encouragement for others who might be facing the similar difficulties.

Trust God and wait in Him. This vision was given to me back in 2004 at a time of consecration in Freeport Grand Bahama, but it was an appointed time for the manifestation.

Your test can indeed be turned into your testimony, and indeed a blessing for others. I never dreamed that the hurt, pain and shame of my journey or emotional, physically and spiritual abuse being held hostage and running for my life at gunpoint, I would end up serving God, at peace and fulfilled in helping others find their purpose!

It is through Prayer and an intimate walk with God that you can be made whole

 It is worship that gives you access to the Secret Place in God, but it is through prayer that you can dwell and abide under the shadow of the Almighty and receive healing, restoration guidance, provision and blessing.

SW: Any closing words you’d like to share with our audience?

Call on Him and He will answer you!!

Every Prophetic word comes to propel you into purpose.  After you have received the Prophetic word your journey of preparation begins. Do not try to run ahead of God or help Him. Wait  on the Lord and He shall direct your path. Wait on God and you shall mount up like wings of an eagle. (Isaiah 40)
