Pastor Arlanda James gave her life to the Lord in 1999. Being straight out of
the world, she started seeking God for herself and getting a relationship with God through fellowship in His word and in prayer.
Pastor Arlanda was real when she was in the world and she is now in Christ Jesus. Pastor Arlanda did not grow up in church, which is evident in her preaching, praying and worship. The Bible states, that "God is a Spirit; and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth." John 4:24. This is what you get in the ministry of Pastor Arlanda James.
Pastor Arlanda, through controversy and persecution, continued to grow closer to the Lord. Due to her unorthodox style of praise and worship, she continually was persecuted in the traditional church.
However, like John the Baptist, she held on to her convictions and continued with her ministry
Pastor Arlanda started Women in Action prayer team in 2002.
This prayer team became a regular prayer breakfast attracting women and men from around Henry and neighboring counties. God started using Pastor Arlanda in deliverance and healing during these prayer meetings.
Pastor Arlanda continued hearing the call to go further and do more for God and became a licensed minister in 2005, under Bishop Donald Battle, Bishop of Divine Faith Ministries.
