Welcome to the messengers of fire Ministries

Messengers of Fire Ministries exist to equip God’s church with light and to empower the Body of Christ with truth, knowledge, and the power of God and His anointing.  We are confident you have stopped by our site for a divine reason.  Here you can harvest teachings, encouragement, newsletters, faith, and much more.  Get connected with us and we hope you will join us in our services!


Our Ministry Vision


Our vision and the focal point is Jesus Christ and all He has provided for us through His blood and the cross.  We seek to follow through with  Acts 26: 18 “to open their [spiritual] eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness and release from their sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified (set apart, made holy) by faith in Me.”  Part of this fulfillment will be a  much larger facility to help train and lead God’s people more fully with an emphasis on the nine gifts of the Spirit. The center will act as a resource hub for the Five-Fold Ministry and believers will be dispersed back into the world, fully equipped, to make disciples.

Meet Our Leaders

Lives transformed by the power of GOD


Tina Gritton


I can never be more grateful for Ted and Janet being a part of my life, I never would have dreamed that I would be under their ministry and learning to do what God has called me to do in His kingdom… This truly is God and I know it, I have always believed that God has earthbound angels who are placed in our lives to look after, teach, comfort, and discipline us…I thank God for my spiritual parents and how they are helping me to become more like Christ…I love you to more than you will ever know. Thank you Jesus for blessing me with these two angels…

Rayna Williams Vergiels

Thank you for loving me in areas where I wasn’t loving myself and showing me the true love of God by your actions. God continues to amaze me with how similar our paths have been and continue to be. Thank God you have been delivered from so many of the same struggles I have. By your freedoms, I have gained freedom and deliverance. Sometimes when I’m telling the Lord how much I love him, even though my words can’t express and my actions often fail – I am comforted to know that he REALLY knows.

We were able to see the walk of Teddy and Janet Dones and saw that they were not playing a game, but were actually living what they preached. We were able to see that there was a way to walk in holiness by the grace of God. I thank God for the ministry of Messengers of Fire; it has changed our lives.

Jonathan Vergiels


Thank you Jesus. Since that first night, I have been released of addiction of 29 years, gained respect from my family, gained their acceptance of who I am not of what I was, and most of all………. I was and still am LOVED. For that I am grateful. I met the one man and woman that has truly lived as how the bible instructs. Love and love some more. I might have been from their loins but they have treated me as if I was. I call them mom and dad from my heart and out of wanting to not out of obligation or respect, but out of the best lesson that they have shown….. Love.

Alecia Howard


So many blessings have come into my family’s life since giving more time to God and less time to self. I’m definitely not close to being perfect in my walk but I’m progressing more and more on a daily basis…God has blessed me with a Godly husband, who isn’t perfect but had not given up, two beautiful smart children, and one on the way, a place to live, food in my fridge, money in my pocket… many more blessings. If I’ve learned anything during my walk is to never quit even when you can’t see what the next step is.

Tana Johnson


Pastor Teddy and Janet have dedicated countless hours to helping me walk in true freedom, pouring their life and knowledge of the Word into me. No matter what time of the day or night I know I can always call. With their help and dedication, I am walking in victory and am becoming more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus.

Chrissy Phipps


When I first experienced the Anointing I couldn’t believe the feeling, the power that came into my body from his was just so awesome and powerful. I never knew that there was such a feeling. There are two people I have to thank for that. Maybe the most important one is GOD. But secondly if it hadn’t been for Teddy that night, I’d still be in that same routine that I was before. But now I live for the LORD.

Harold Dean James


I am praying about everything to work out in God’s will. So all of you pray for me because I need it more than ever at this time. But I know things will work out as long as I give it to God and let Him deal with it.

Bill Clifford


The Lord used you to speak to both of us and I’m grateful that we had some time to fellowship together. The Lord used you in my life to challenge my walk with Him, to search my heart and to die to my flesh. I want to encourage you that you spoke words of life to my spirit, which is hungering to serve God in righteousness. Thank you for being faithful and obedient to the Lord.
