Today Clarkwise's Rochell Clark Irving begins a new chapter in her life as she succeeds her father as pastor of the Miracle Deliverance United Holy Church.
"We know that our steps are ordered by God, and elevation and promotion come from Him so I am honored to continue this work in the ministry standing on the foundation laid by my parents", says Rochell.
Rochell developed a love for God's word and began teaching Sunday School in her local church. She accepted the call to work in the Lord's vineyard and received her ministerial license in September 2000. She was later ordained as an Elder in 2005. Rochell has served the United Holy Church of America as secretary of the Department of Evangelism as well as vice president of the Southern District Missionary Department.
