Pastor Diana D. Cary is a native of Newport News, Virginia. In July 2019, God provided her with the vision of being the Founder, CEO and Senior Pastor of Divine Deliverance Ministries (DDM). After much prayer and numerous conversations with God, Pastor Cary accepted the call and began to make preparation for the ministry that God has birth inside of her.
Excited about the vision that God has given her, Pastor Cary readily shared it with a few family members and friends. Once they heard the vision and saw how God was moving in Pastor Cary's life, they immediately caught hold of the vision and began working diligently to move forward with the plans that God has for DDM. In November 2019, God blessed DDM to be able to obtain a place to worship. On December 1, 2019, God blessed Pastor Cary and DDM to hold their first worship service in Suffolk, Virginia. Less than a month later, God opened the door for DDM to secure a place in Newport News, Virginia where they hold Sunday worship. In this timespan, God has blessed her ministry to grow from near and far.
Since accepting the call to Pastor, she has birth Divine Intercessory Pray (DIP), which allows Saints to dip into the power of God through prayer. She has also been given the vision for the following ministries: JOYFUL (Senior's Ministry), ARMY (Youth Ministry), DIVAS (Women's Ministry) and MIGHTY (Men's Ministry).
