THE FORD FAMILY MAY BE THE MOST MINISTRY ORIENTED FAMILY IN THE WORLD...
The foundation of More Than Conquerors School of Theology was laid more than 200 years ago.
Dr. J. David Ford established MTC in 1992, but the vision of ministry has been passed down the Ford family from “generation to generation” since the 1700s.
Pastor Kenneth E. Fletcher was called into the ministry while on active military duty in 1993 in Korea. Since that time the Lord has used him to do evangelistic crusades across the United States. In 2003, he was directed to launch Living Word Christian Fellowship in Corsicana Tx where he now serves as Sr Pastor along with his wife Tamara. Pastor Fletcher has a unique gift of apostolic and prophetic teaching that enables him to minister to the body of Christ at all levels.
J. David Ford began ministering on radio and in revivals at the early age of five. He has spent most of his life as a student and teacher of the Word.
Since beginning in the ministry full time in 1970, Brother Ford has ministered as an evangelist, pastor, Christian school principal and Bible college professor. His ministry background includes almost every phase of ministry.
Brother Ford’s ministry has taken him into all 50 states. After taking his first mission trip in 1976, he has been very active in world evangelization and has continued to travel to a host of nations on a regular basis.
His experiences, from almost 40 years of ministry and personally training thousands of pastors around the world, enable Brother Ford to teach the Word of God from a very unique and effective perspective. Because of the way he presents the Gospel, students are able to better understand and apply God’s Word to their lives.
Brother Ford received his Bachelor's of Theology from Christian Bible College and his Master's and Doctorate in Theology from Andersonville Baptist Seminary.
Brother Ford has been president/pastor of Evangelistic Messengers’ Association since 1987 (www.emai.org). In 1994 he founded More Than Conquerors School of Theology in Cleveland, Tennessee (www.morethanconquerors.org). Brother Ford is also founder of New Hope Children’s Foundation in Nicaragua begun in 2004 (www.newhopechildrensfoundation.org).

Rhea was born in Florida to parents committed to full time pastoral ministry. At the age of four, she was first given the opportunity to sing and her love of music was born.

In 2003, she earned a Masters degree in Church Music with an emphasis in conducting. She served three years as Pastor of worship and arts at New Hope Church in Sevierville, TN.
