 What We Believe ... Apostolic Doctrine


Our Pastor ... Dr. Miracle Pettenger, Th.D

         Many people have asked her, “How did you get the name Miracle?”

Before Pastor Pettenger was born, the doctors warned her mother that if she were

to continue with the pregnancy, the baby would be born mentally retarded with water

on the brain. However, being a woman of God, her mother, Apostle Dorene J. King

refused to believe the report of the doctors and went home and began to pray. As

she was praying, God spoke to her and said: “Her name shall be called Miracle, for I

will prove to my people that I am yet a miracle-working God.” Standing on this word,

Apostle King gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on January 31, 1979.  And as for all the complications and defects that the doctors had predicted, well, none of them came to pass. 

         Even as a young child, the hand of God was on Ms. Pettenger’s life as she was an honor student and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Math/Computer Science, a Master’s Degree in Information Systems Management, and a Doctorate in Theological Studies.

         From its inception in 1995, she was an active member of New Beginnings Apostolic Faith Ministries, Inc. of Virginia Beach, VA, founded by her parents Bishop Joseph and Apostle Dorene King. It was with this ministry that she received her Local Minister’s License in June 2004. She completed the NBAFM ministerial biblical training and was later ordained to the office of Elder in March 2006. She served faithfully in all areas of ministry and administration.

          It was in November of 2013, that God began to deal with Elder Miracle Pettenger through prayer and prophetic words of confirmation about the fullness of her ministry calling based on the Word of God and the foundation of the apostolic legacy of her parents. On May 1, 2014, in obedience to the call and proceeding word of God, Elder Miracle stepped out on faith with the vision of Proceeding Word Apostolic Ministries based on the scripture Isaiah 55:11. She was later ordained as Pastor Miracle Pettenger on January 31, 2015. Dr. Miracle Pettenger and Proceeding Word Apostolic Ministries, Inc. is currently under the apostolic covering of Apostle Vennissica Kelly, founder of Word Clinic International Ministries and Senior Pastor of Prayer & Healing Center Church in Fayetteville, NC.

         Dr. Pettenger ministers unto God through serving her loving and supportive husband, Bro. Tad L. Pettenger and their children. She has been blessed to share the proceeding promises and purpose of God through local ministry, small group and online bible sessions, various women’s ministry conferences and in lives of those within the community.
