WE ARE AN APOSTOLIC/PROPHETIC MINISTRY, WHICH IS PART OF THE FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY.
PROPHETESS BETTY WAS CALLED OF GOD FROM HER MOTHER'S WOMB. GROWING UP, SHE ALWAYS KNEW THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT HER LIFE, AS SHE ALWAYS DESIRED TO BE IN CHURCH. EVEN AS A YOUNG CHILD, THE FIRST CHURCH SHE ATTENDED UNTIL AGE 8, WAS THE CHURCH OF GOD. WHEN HER FAMILY MOVED, HER MEMBERSHIP MOVED TO PULASKI HEIGHTS METHODIST CHURCH, UNTIL SHE WAS AGE 16. THEN SHE MOVED TO BAPTIST TABERNACLE CHURCH UNTIL SHE MARRIED AT THE AGE OF 19.
BETTY WAS BORN AND REARED IN LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS. SHE MARRIED A SERVICE MAN IN 1965, AT
JACKSONVILLE, ARKANSAS AIR FORCE BASE. BETTY HAS 2 SONS, ONE OF WHOM IS NOW HOME WITH THE LORD. BETTY ALSO HAS 3 GRANDCHILDREN WHOM SHE PROPHESIED TO FROM THEIR MOTHER'S WOMB. SHE SAW THEM IN THE SPIRIT, TWO GIRLS AND ONE BOY. THEIR NAMES ARE CAITLIN ELIZABETH, JORDIN EVA, AND LUKE CHANDLER.
ACCEPTING THE CALL OF GOD UPON HER LIFE IN 1988, SHE GAVE UP HOUSES AND LAND, JOB, RETIREMENT, FRIENDS, AND EVEN FAMILY FOR A SEASON, TO OBEY THE CALL OF GOD ON HER LIFE. APOSTLE JAMES WESLEY SMITH PROPHESIED THE CALLING, AND FOLLOWING IN OBEDIENCE SHE WENT TO MELBOURNE, FLORIDA TO SERVE IN THE APOSTLES MINISTRY. AFTER A SEASON, JAMES SMITH ORDAINED BETTY INTO MINISTRY. SHE LEFT THERE TO START HER JOURNEY WITH THE LORD, WORKING TOGETHER WITH HIM.
BETTY RETURNED TO OHIO AND BEGAN TO TRAVEL EXTENSIVELY ALL OVER THE EAST COAST, PREACHING, TEACHING, IMPARTING, AND RAISING UP THE SAINTS TO DO THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY. SHE THEN MET APOSTLE ROBERT FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN. HE BEGAN TO IMPART THE APOSTOLIC ANOINTING TO HER. SHE THEN STARTED TO FLOW IN THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT. SHE WALKED ALONGSIDE APOSTLE ROBERT FOR 17 YEARS. HE RECENTLY PASSED AWAY AND WENT HOME TO BE WITH LORD. BEFORE HE PASSED AWAY, HE TRANSFERRED HIS MANTLE TO HER.
BETTY'S HEART IS FOR PRAYER, INTERCESSION, AND TO RAISE UP WATCHMEN AND GATEKEEPERS; TO BRING TRANSFORMATION INTO THE LAND, TEACHING BELIEVERS HOW TO BE A THERMOSTAT RATHER THAN A THERMOMETER. THIS HAPPENS BY TEACHING PEOPLE HOW TO TAKE AUTHORITY OVER THE WEATHER ELEMENTS AND TO TAKE DOMINION. BETTY IS KINGDOM MINDED AND BELIEVES: "WE WILL LIVE AND NOT DIE, BUT WE WILL DECLARE THE WORKS OF GOD."
BETTY HAS BEEN A PART OF A PROPHETIC ROUNDTABLE MINISTRY PRAYING FOR MATTERS THAT MATTER. THE TEAM USED TO BE CALLED THE SWIFT JUSTICE TEAM, BUT NOW IT IS CALLED: "THE ROLLING THUNDER TEAM," HEADED UP BY APOSTLE DON CRUM.
BETTY IS ALSO A PART OF CHRIST CASTLE CHURCH, WITH PASTOR SAM SARFO AND APOSTLE ALFRED TAGOE IN COLUMBUS, OHIO. SHE IS THE PROPHETESS OF THE HOUSE, THE ADMINISTRATOR, A DEACONESS AND AN ELDER.

To Whom It May Concern:
I have known Betty Holland for approximately ten years. We met at a
meeting where In ministered, and I believe that the meeting was Divinely inspired. Betty and I began to share immediately our visions for ministry and found that we had much in common. We decided to do a meeting together and, with her as host, conducted a two-day meeting in Columbus, Ohio. People came from Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and shared in the message, "Let My People Go". Betty arranged the facility and influenced many in her area to attend. There were lay people and ministers in attendance, a tribute to her ability to attract all levels of Christians to her meetings.
Betty has been consistent over the years and has been a crusader for Christ She is deeply committed to prayer and teaching people how to relate to God in a real and powerful way. She is a help and encouragement to other ministers, and gives faithful prayer support and oversight to those she helps. She lives by faith and depend upon God for all things. I consider he a woman of integrity who can be trusted and depended upon. When she says she will do something for you, she sees it through. She is a strong motivator and a gifted teacher and intercessor.I commend her highly. Anything that she envisions she can accomplish. She trusts God and inspires others to do so as well. I pray God's highest blessing on her life and work.
