A reception celebrating the 12 years of ministry of evangelist Marva A. Lee will be held Saturday from 4-6 p.m. at the J. T. McDaniel Plaza, 1401 E. Third St., Ste. B, (across from the old Dr. Sherrod’s Building). Ms. Lee is the president and founder of MarvelousWorks Ministries. The Ministries’ primary focus is to preach the gospel to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted and to set the captives free.
As part of her evangelist outreach, Ms. Lee formerly hosted a radio ministry for three years called: “Power Of Deliverance” on WNOO 1260. Ms. Lee is a vocalist and speaker in the greater Chattanooga area and surrounding cities.
As mentioned earlier, Evangelist Lee has been in ministry for 12 years and said the number 12 holds special significance from a biblical perspective. First off, it represents divine authority and appointment, as well as governmental foundation and perfection, and shows completeness. The high priest’s breastplate, used for judgment, had 12 stones representing the 12 tribes. During the period of the judges, 12 judges judged Israel. At age 12, Jesus appeared at the temple. Jesus ordained 12 apostles, who were sent with authority to preach the Gospel and to be witnesses of His resurrection. After His resurrection, Jesus told the apostles that He had been given all authority in heaven and earth — the divine authority of God.
Ms. Lee said, "As God’s chosen vessel it is my prayer that in the next 12 years, God would find me continuing to do the work of an evangelist, to preach the word, to be instant in season and out of season, to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons: because freely I have received, and freely, I shall give."
