“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16

Our History

About Evangelist Betty Ladner

Betty is originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and currently resides with her husband David in Raleigh, North Carolina. She accepted Jesus at the age of eight in a Southern Baptist Church. After marriage and years of church attendance, she began to sense a deeper hunger for the things of God.

When Betty received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in 1972, her relationship with Jesus changed dramatically. Home prayer meetings and Bible studies became her and her family's way of life. In 1987, after clear direction from the Lord, they moved to Clearwater, Florida where she received a call to the five-fold ministry. In 1990 Betty and David graduated from the Institute of Ministry School of Bradenton, Florida and are licensed by: Life in Christ, Inc.   In 1997 she and her family relocated to the North Carolina area. Since first being called to the ministry 20 years ago Betty has been moving in the prophetic, teaching, healing and deliverance ministry. Betty operates in all nine gifts of the Holy Spirit. Scores of people have seen their lives transformed by the healing power of God. Bety and David now reside in Oceanside, Ca.

Her desire is to teach and encourage others how to have a victorious "Life in Christ" & how to walk in fellowship with the Holy Spirit.


About Evangelist David Ladner

David was born in the Homochitto Valley, in the sawmill town of Crosby, MS. He received Jesus as his personal savior at the age of eight in Gulfport, MS. Over the years David was a regular member of the Baptist church. However, after receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit in 1972, dramatic spiritual changes took place in his life. Like Betty, David has been blessed with manifestations of the gifts, but best serves the ministry through his years of administration and business skills.

As a businessman, David went from a local hometown to a statewide advertising business. He then worked internationally as a Mortgage Broker. David and Betty started Life in Christ Ministries, Inc. in 1980. Life in Christ Ministries is a ministry to ministries and has helped raise thousands of dollars for the Gospel, here and abroad. In 1999 David and Betty closed their church in Sarasota, FL. and have since been ministering in several states as evangelists.

They have two sons, one daughter and a granddaughter.
