The Vision Continues...


The Gates of Heaven Assembly of Churches has much to praise God for as we celebrate the

Consecration of our Bishop Maureen Lorraine Davis.

This mighty branch of Zion that Bishop Davis will

preside over has a rich history that began in December 1955 with its Founder and her Grandmother, Bishop

Lena Thomas.

In 2001, Bishop Davis was elected as the Director of the Gates of Heaven Assembly of Churches

until 2005 when she was appointed and elected to be the successor to Bishop Thomas.

This is a position for

which she is well qualified and well prepared.

Her ministry training began in her early years with her parents

as they traveled from Seat Pleasant, Maryland to North Philadelphia for several years to teach the Gospel to

the young children of the neighborhood.

From this experience, a church was established to what is now known

as the Open Door Mission True Light Church.

Her father, Rev. James L. Ballard, Sr. served as Pastor

while he mentored his daughter in every area of ministry.

B

ishop Davis began her preaching ministry in 1982.

From 1985 to 1990, she served as the Assistant

Pastor of the Open Door Mission True Light Church under her father Rev. James L. Ballard, Sr. In

1990, she was installed as Pastor of the Open Door Mission True Light Church, an office she continues to

hold to present.

She comes with extensive academic and ministry training and holds a Doctorate in Ministry

and a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from the Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

She holds a

Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies from the Center for Urban Theological Studies/Geneva College.

Her

life and her ministry reflect her belief in doing all things for the Lord in excellence.

Bishop Davis is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania born to the proud parents of the late Rev.

James L. Ballard, Sr. and Mrs. Lena Ballard.

She is married for 32 years to Deacon George L.

Davis and they share the blessing of two adult daughters, Dr. Kim C. Davis and Mrs. Marcia Hodges,

a son-in-law, Robert L. Hodges, III and two precious grandchildren, McKenzie Maureen Hodges and

ChaèLa Christine Hodges.

O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things.

To our daughter, We thank you for giving us the opportunity to raise a daughter who grew up to love the Lord with all heart. Maureen, you were always obedient, respectful, and loving child. Your father and I love you so much. Who knew that our “little girl” would grow up to be the mighty woman of God you truly are today. To God be the glory! Your father is in heaven with the Lord now, but he left a Godly legacy and you have stepped into those shoes. Not only was he a loving father, he was your teacher and mentor in this spiritual example. I know he is with us in spirit and is Godly proud of you. Maureen, you are the epitome of a daughter to me. You are my daughter, my best friend, my pastor. I love you will all my heart and I thank God for you every day. Holding you in my arms as a newborn baby, nurturing you through your teen years and beholding the blessed woman of God you are today, I am tremendously proud of you and I am blessed by your life. I know that God has equipped you for such a time as this and for the next level of your life as you are consecrated to the sacred office of Bishop. I will always be here for you…in Prayer, Support and Faith, just as you are for me. I am blessed to be your “Mother”.

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
