The power of the Living God is found in both the ministry and testimony of Pastor Lucia Schipani. For as much as Our Lord has touched her personal life, His healing and love has become magnified through the anointing He has placed in her hands.
Pastor Lucy is a walking witness to the healing power of God which has raised her from a dying, low self-esteemed person to a bold vessel for Jesus Christ. Her motivation is an over-powering compassion for the lost; her expression of this love is love for all. Pastor Lucy lives her life ministering Word Counsel to anyone in need - as she surrenders unto the Holy Spirit, the Gifts of the Spirit manifest mightily.
To be touched by Pastor Lucy's ministry is a touch from God. The love she has for people becomes personal to all she meets.
