The vision of Violet Glory Ministries is to be a ministry of healing and reconciliation for lost weary souls (2 Corinthians 5:18). Its mission is to provide a safe haven and refuge which promotes inner healing.  What is the Purpose of Violet Glory Ministries:

  2. Those who are in a transitional phase of their life.
  3. Those who are called to be licensed and/or ordained but do not have a home church or who are experiencing difficulty.
Source of Inspiration The source of inspiration for this ministry comes from Psalms 40:3 which states “And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.” The creative arts, to include song, dance, and expressive writing, is an integral part of the ministry.

Violet Glory is an unconventional ministry that does not believe in hindering protocol and rituals that prevent people from hearing the true voice of God. We believe everyone has a true song in their heart as individual as your fingerprints. We desire to understand and to bring healing to the hurting areas in people’s lives. Finally. we love laughter since scripture states that laughter is as medicine to the soul.
