Evangelist Dea Warford of Corona, Calif., is ministering at Living Word Fellowship 6 p.m. today and Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday.
The church is located at 824 Pba’ul (DarkBrush), in the Gardnerville Ranchos. The white cross on top of the church can be seen from the intersection of Long Valley and Dresslerville Roads.
Warford has ministered in all 50 states and foreign countries, pioneered four churches, has been a frequent camp speaker and made appearances on college campuses, radio and television.
According to his website, www.evangelistdeawarford.org, Warford was headed for a career in the Ku Klux Klan and was being groomed by his uncle, Charles Lynch, then considered the best preacher in the Klan, and the “most dangerous man in America” by the U.S. House subcommittee on unAmerican activities.
“At one time, Dea’s goal in life was to be Imperial Wizard of the KKK,” the website stated. “But God had a better plan for his life. How he turned from the Klan to Christ is an amazing and unusual testimony, which he gives during the crusade.”
Warford’s motto is “Expect a miracle. Your life will never be the same.”
“Through this ministry, many have testified of receiving a miracle of healing; from heart problems to sleep apnea, from arthritis to asthma, and from decades of chronic pain to drug addictions,” Pastor Gene Holman of Living Word Fellowship said. “With prophetic words and humorous and interesting messages full of stories from Dea’s own personal life, Dea’s ministry makes it fun to be in church.”
