Holly Clark is the Director of the Tigard Healing Rooms in Tigard, Oregon and The Glory Gatherings.
She was saved at age five and has been Charismatic since the late 60’s. She met many speakers including the late President and founder of the FGBMF, Demos Shakarian and Corrie Ten Boon. She worked at Campus Crusade for Christ headquarters in Arrowhead Springs, CA out of high school and in her twenties she worked for Kenneth & Gloria Copeland in Fort Worth, TX. She has been a former board member of two International Women’s Aglow chapters, a worship leader, an Alpha leader, a Soloist and an intercessor.
She is the mother of three grown and four grand darlings.
Holly has a mantel from heaven to heal the broken hearted, pray for the sick and set people free. She is prophetic and a gifted soloist and loves to share her powerful testimony that comes from dying to self, and running the race with perseverance.
Holly is an identical twin along with one older sister, who were raised on whole wheat bread, Montivonti, and John 3:16 in the heart of Los Angeles, California. Her late mother, Helen Catherwood was a graduate of Wheaton College and Moody Bible Institute and her grandfather was a personal friend of Dwight L. Moody and one of his pall bearers. Her mother sang opera professionally in N.Y., the Hollywood Bowl, and the L.A. Philharmonic Her late father, Dr. Joel Strandberg, was an engineer/lay pastor of The North Shore Baptist church in Lake Arrowhead where they had a second home.
Holly enjoyed half of her life at the lake and the other half in the city where she and her twin sister did modeling for Janzen and Lanz, and TV commercials at the early age of five. They were on Art Linkletter’s show “Kids Say the Darnd’est Things” as well as having a final interview with the late Walt Disney for the movie, “Babes in Toyland” in 1961 and a small part in another movie. She also started singing with her sisters at age five.
Although this may sound glamorous, in fact, there was much dysfunction, confusion, and a twin identity crisis which left many soul wounds. In college, Holly had an encounter with God in her bedroom that changed her life over night.
Walking away from the performance side of Christianity into the valley of dying to self to learn who she was/is in Christ Jesus has given her an incredible platform from which to minister the goodness of God. She has walked through divorce, deliverance, and ordination which has provided her with strength and courage to share the fellowship of suffering, intimacy with God and the gospel of His healing love. Her enthusiasm for God is contagious and her story brings hope.

After Bible College, Russ entered into several areas of ministry. He served as a Visitation Pastor, Interim Pastor, Associate Pastor and Senior Pastor. In 1989 Russ started traveling the country as an Evangelist. In 2002 the Lord directed him to start Destiny Church.

As the youngest of six children in a pastor's family, Ruth was raised with a very hands-on, people-oriented view of ministry. Some of her favorite memories are of doing hospital visitation with her father, who was used mightily in healing as well as in a jail and street ministry, being moved with compassion for the broken. She was raised to "go anywhere and pray anywhere" there was a need.
Attending Bible college in Seattle, for Ruth, meant traveling ministry teams and student body leadership, all while pursuing a double major in Church Music Administration and Missions. In her second year of college she became reacquainted with a "gorgeous" man of like passion, and was so blessed to find that God had kept him just for her. One of the first things young John shared with her was that his deep passion for his home town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, would one day require him to return there to minister, and anyone who would marry him would have to be okay with that
Ruth’s love for worship, she believes, began "in the womb," and she was involved in music from age three. Her passion is ever increasing, with an awareness of a new sound from heaven being released on the earth. Anything that will be established will come out of worship and intercession. Presently, she is focusing on that, and raising up teams of worshipers from a variety of backgrounds, but with one purpose to worship under an open heaven and see His Kingdom come to earth! Ruth and her husband John are Regional directors of RAIN Ministries for the state of Idaho.
Pastor Robinson Fondong was born in the Southwest Province of Cameroon. At the age of 13, he received the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, and immediately resolved to make Jesus Christ the model of his life.
Despite persecutions, rejection, and extreme shyness from severe stuttering he took advantage of every opportunity to spread the Word of God in his school and community. He knew he had found the Fountain of Life, and he spared no opportunity to invite people to drink freely. The Lord backed His Word. Many of the students and his family members came to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. On one occasion at the tender age of 14, 52 of his converts were baptized in one day. The Holy Spirit moved, transforming lives and caused the young believers to abide. Many of these converts from the early years of his ministry are serving the Lord in various capacities today.
Meanwhile, Robinson also witnessed the supernatural hand of God in his personal life. He was miraculously healed from the acute stuttering condition that plagued his childhood and transformed into a bold, assertive servant of God. The young fiery evangelist moved his pulpit from elementary school, through high school into the University of Buea, Cameroon. While at the University, he provided valuable leadership, modeling holiness in his own life on campus and as President of the Student Union. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and immediately responded to the call of God upon his life by enrolling in the School of Knowing and Serving God, a Christian Missionary Fellowship Ministry Bible school in Yaounde, Cameroon, after which he moved to the United States where he obtained a Master’s degree in Theology.
Robinson relocated to the United States in 2000, as a missionary for his home church, Christian Missionary Fellowship International, in Maryland. The church in Westminster, Maryland was birthed when the Lord blessed his personal evangelization ministry with the conversion of a young man. The two met regularly to study the Word, pray and go out to evangelize. Then God sent a destiny helper in the person of Pastor Mark Wadel who has since gone to be with the Lord. He and his wife Betty introduced the young church in Maryland to the Franklin Mennonites, a dynamic body of believers given to mission work and the deployment of human and material resources for the spread of the gospel worldwide. The Franklin Mennonites have since been mightily used of God to support Pastor Robinson in his apostolic mandate, and to uphold the church in Maryland as a pillar to the nations.
In 2004 Pastor Robinson happily married his sweetheart Elizabeth, who is herself a Minister of the Gospel. They both serve the Lord with infectious zeal, ministering together in crusades and conventions. They have dedicated their lives to do the will of God and establish God’s Kingdom from Westminster to the ends of the earth, delighting in seeing people freed from captivity through the ministry of deliverance. They are blessed with three sons: Paul, David, and Emmanuel. Their avid desire in Robinson’s words is to “plunder hell and populate heaven for Calvary’s sake. That is the desire of the Lord, the goal of the church and it should be the goal of every believer.” Robinson is also compelled by the Spirit of God to awaken the church to her responsibility towards the lost, being the one reason for which Christ died. He is the founder of “World Conquest for Jesus”, a team ministry consisting of ordained pastors in Maryland and Pennsylvania and other ministers of the New Covenant, created with the goal of winning our world for Christ.
Pastor Robinson is being used extensively by God in the healing and deliverance ministry in the USA, Africa, India, and South America. He speaks in conferences in various nations on deliverance and the breaking of generational curses and trains deliverance and healing ministers. He has ministered deliverance to thousands of people with outstanding results of freedom from spirits of cancer, diabetes, asthma, barrenness, depression, and many other demonic strongholds. The gifts of the Holy Spirit prevalent in his ministry include the working of miracles and most notably, the word of knowledge and prophecy. He is an evangelist by calling with a great passion to see the lost saved and has pioneered the planting of 2 churches in Maryland.As a team, he and his wife have impacted multitudes and many have been transformed by the palpable anointing that accompanies their ministry. .

For 42 years, they have served and are serving the Lord in the area of their calling together. Bishop Forlu was born with a speech impediment. Stuttering stood as a real obstacle to effective communication in his daily life. It was a mountain that needed to be dissolved for easy communication of the gospel. In 1972, he posed a question to God in prayer and God miraculously delivered him. His testimony has birthed instant miracles and has changed the lives of many others to the Glory of God our Father.
Bishop Pius and Pastor Mercy Forlu are originally from Cameroon where they pastored, planted churches, built churches and organized city wide crusades before the Lord relocated them for their next assignment in the United States of America.By the grace of God, through their ministry, thousands have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of their lives. They continue incessantly to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and the victory of the cross as led by the Holy Spirit with signs and wonders following. Bishiop Pius Forlu has a Diploma in Ministerial studies from Full Gospel Bible Institute-Cameroon; B.A degree in Christian Education from Assemblies of God Divinity School- Nigeria; Masters degree in Biblical Studies from Newburgh Seminary-Indiana, USA; and a PhD from Christian Bible Institute and Seminary in Jacksonville,Florida.

Ps Gaius and Emmanuella Forlu
Several years ago in the West African country Cameroon, God sent me into this world through my parents: Pastor Pius and Pastor Mercy Forlu. Just as the Scripture says, Before you were born I knew you, so was I born with leadership responsibilities awaiting me. As the first child of the family, I started learning how to tend the Lord's sheep at a very tender age. I grew up in the Church and had the opportunity to watch my dad closely as he performed his pastoral duties. Later as I got older, I came to understand the need for a personal relation with Jesus Christ. I was aware that being "born in the Church" and raised by a seasoned preacher was not a passport to heaven.
Therefore, in 1993, I gave my life to Jesus Christ. From that point on, my life has never been the same again. At the age of 13, I received the call from God to preacher of the gospel. Sooner than I thought, I started manifesting the traits of a preacher. Soon or late I migrated to the U.S.
I am married to Emmanuella Forlu. We are anointed Servants of God raised up for this generation. We are anointed to preach the infallible Word of God without compromise. In this ministry many have been saved, healed and filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. By the power of God, the deaf hear, some have throne their crutches and walk, people are set free from demonic possessions and some incurable diseases disappears in the presence of God. God often uses us in the Prophetic and Word of Knowledge and by His grace we have been heavenly encounters where the supernatural becomes natural. We stress the importance of faith in God and the eternal value of living a life of prayer and holiness. Our heart is to see the lost saved and the church strengthened.
