After playing Professionally in the WNBA and Overseas, she returned home and began her mentoring program, "Hope Dreams 4 Life", as well as coaching at the high school and collegiate level.
She knew the Call of Ministry was on her life because it was prophesied that she would Preach, Teach, and Prophesy the Word of God while she was in her mother's womb. Pastor Ward believes that it was predestined for her to Preach the Gospel. She holds fast to Jeremiah 1:5, and she stands firmly on Walking by Faith and not by Sight.
While coaching at Jackson State University, after winning 3 Championships in 2 seasons, she knew it was time to Walk by Faith into full time ministry. Pastor Ward took the leap of Faith to become Pastor of Divine Purpose Ministry in Brandon, Ms.

This generation is on Fire to represent the Kingdom and win souls for Christ. We must get boots on the ground to instill divine purpose in the lives of God's people, while planting one seed at a time.
