Developing kingdom leaders and operating in the visible manifestations of God’s supernatural power are what sets Apostle Crawford’s work apart while providing apostolic oversight and mentoring for leaders throughout the United States.
She is no stranger to the supernatural, and has embraced such as her reality since the age of 5. She is consistent in demonstrating God’s power through the supernatural graces of healing miracles, prophecy, word of knowledge and word of wisdom. As a result, it is her desire to help others to learn how to hear God for themselves and use the power and authority that God has given them unapologetically. Apostle Crawford authored her first book, The Birthing Room: The First Trimester, September 2019 and Release Date: Eight Days to a New Beginning in April 2020.
Apostle Crawford believes in spiritual and academic excellence and has since made such part of the ministry’s mission in serving others. She is a licensed and ordained prophet, pastor, evangelist, teacher and affirmed apostle. Education is one of her major spheres of influence and as a result, she works diligently in staying current on research and trends in education and ministry for the purposes of bringing knowledge back to the community of kingdom learners. She now pursues completing a doctoral degree in education majoring in organizational leadership with an emphasis in Christian ministry. From the University of Missouri-St. Louis, she received both her graduate and undergraduate degrees with a Masters in special education and a Bachelor of Arts in communication. She currently resides in Southen IL with her husband Apostle Marshall Crawford and together they have three children.
