Biography of Prophet Rita Betts
I was born on April 8, 1965 in Cleveland, Ohio. I am the wife of the great and loving Apostle Warnsley Betts. I am the proud mother of three children: Diandra, Enjoli, and Warnsely (Devin); and the grandmother of two, Gregory and Leilah.
During my husband’s tenure as the Pastor of True Vine Primitive Baptist Church in Elyria, Ohio, I finally acknowledged my call to Ministry on November 5, 2000. While at True Vine PBC, the Lord let me to start an After School Study Program to help all children be the best that they could be, first and foremost for the Lord, and secondly academically. I also had a heart for teenagers so I became a Sunday School teacher.
On October 1, 2004, at G.E.O.M. where Apostle Frances Goodwin is the Pastor, I was filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. As the month progressed, God took me in a direction that I thought never existed. A Prophetic call was prevalent on my life. After praying, fasting and supplication, I answered my call as God’s Prophet. This is not a call that I take lightly. I always remember who I represent and who I speak for, speaking only what God instructs me to say.
In January 2005, the vision of a Women’s Ministry, CW3 (Christian Women Working Wonders), was birthed at New Morning Star PBC. The purpose of the ministry was to equip and empower all women to meet their fullest potential and purpose for God’s Kingdom.
My desire for the future is to further my studies in Theology by participating in an accredited program for by attending Seminary to deepen my understanding of the Bible in order to win souls, equip saints, and enhance God’s Kingdom.
My Favorite scripture is Psalms 34: “I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth”
