“But when he saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered broad, as sheep having no shepherd.” (Matthew 9:36). Being summoned from Flushing, New York by his Lord with these poignant words, Bishop Dr. Delford D. Davis returned to Jamaica to pioneer a work along with his wife, Reverend Petrova Davis and a team of twelve (12) individuals. Consequently, this magnum opus was inaugurated under a little brown tent in the Waterford community of Portmore, St. Catherine, Jamaica on April 24, 1983.
As the membership rapidly increased, upgrade to a wooden structure and relocation to Lot 1305 Manhertz Road, Waterford, followed in 1985. The severe winds of Hurricane Gilbert in 1988 annihilated the building, but God faithfully continued to add to congregation. It was then apparent that the Ministry had outgrown this location. Subsequently, a third and final move was in order to the now permanent and present Headquarters at Portmore Town Centre, St. Catherine. Over the years, Almighty God, being faithful to His Word, has been extending the boundaries of the Ministry, physically and virtually (www.pfmfamily.org), throughout the regions of Jamaica, North America and entire Globe.
In 2006, through divine appointment, Reverend Joycelyn Rose, Senior Pastor of the then Abundant Faith Ministries, Hollywood, Florida USA, engaged Bishop Davis in one week of revival. Being enthralled by his calibre of ministry and evident anointing, Reverend Rose expressed her desire for him become the Bishop of the Ministry. With intense scrutiny and consultation with the Lord, Bishop Davis and his wife, Reverend Petrova Davis consented to undertake this new endeavor and the Power of Faith Ministries International, Inc., Hollywood, Florida Assembly experienced its conception. This transition was successfully completed in 2007.
As the years progressed, Reverend Rose indicated her desire to demit the office of Senior Pastor. On August 4, 2011, Reverend Michael Hutchinson, his wife Exhorter Patricia Hutchinson and their children of the Headquarters Assembly, Jamaica were commissioned by God where he assumed the position of Senior Pastor. His installation was and continues to be enriching and affirming to the congregants, who desire to serve and grow in the grace and the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Wednesday, June 13, 2012 is recorded as a historic milestone in the life of the Ministry when the good Hand of God opened the doors of favor for us to acquire our first Church property at 6337 SW 27th Street, Miramar, Florida 33023. On Sunday, July 22, 2012, as we worshipped for the first time in our own Sanctuary the apparent presence and power of the Spirit of the Lord was within our midst.
We continue to grow as a body of Believers forging ahead under the scripture theme “The people who know their God shall be strong and do exploits.” – Daniel 11:32b. To God be all the glory great things He has done. We stand with the assurance that greater things are still to come.
