Through vision and spiritual confirmation Pastor Davis continued to do evangelistic services throughout the United States. In 1978, Dr. Ella M. Davis established House of Prayer # 4 in Fort Myers, Florida. In December 18, 1980, Pastor Judy Sykes heard the call from God and confirmation from her pastor to leave Kankakee and move to Fort Myers to oversee the work in Florida.
Education & Experience
Pastor Sykes graduated from Governor State University, where she earned a Bachelor's degree in Social Work and Human Justice. She worked 24 years for Child Care Southwest Florida. In 2000, she received her ministerial degree from Aenon Bible College. She received evangelistic training from Evangelical Training Association, Wheaton, Illinois. Presently, she continues to train to perfect her ministries.
Taking the Reins
After the "homegoing" of the late Pastor Dr. Ella M. Davis, in September 2008, Pastor Sykes had been operating in the interim pastoral office. She has embraced the community by establishing several community outreach programs. "Concern Group for Others" (C.G.O) includes a food bank, sponsors the SHARE program, holds educational services for the welfare of people, and conduct services at several nursing homes in the Fort Myers community. On September 26, 2009, at First Baptist Church, 1735 Jackson Street in Fort Myers, Florida, Pastor Judy W. Sykes was installed as Senior Pastor of the House of Prayer Apostolic Faith Church of God. We ask that you pray for Pastor Sykes, that God will continue to give her the vision, for we all know "without a vision the people will perish" and if God gives a vision "he will make the provision."
