   Florida Theological Ministries Inc., previously known as, Word to Live by Outreach Ministries Inc., was birthed in 1998. In 2010 Dr. Judith Ann founded Florida Theological University (an online University); after the Holy Spirit spoke to her concerning the mental and spiritual state of His people. She believes that Leaders should have a place where life experiences can be applied to a Theological Degree, in Counseling and Education. During the process of her journey, Dr. Judith Ann came to identify a major key that was missing in the lives of the believer. She realized that God’s people needed to learn how to understand what it means to apply the Word of God to their ministry, prayer, and their everyday life.


    With more than twenty years in leadership as a Pastor, Missionary, Advocate, Chaplain, Teacher, Victims Service Practitioner with the Attorney General Office; also one who has worked within the five-fold ministry for several years; Dr. Judith Ann was led to open a Chaplaincy School.

    Therefore, in the structure of the Florida Theological University, a Chapel was created to provide an opportunity for God's people to understand what it means to be in the marketplace. This is a setting where Chaplains can discuss issues and offer referrals as it relates to marketplace ministries. Ephesians 4:12-13 instructs the five-fold ministry; “to equip the saints for the work of ministry; to build up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law (Psalm 119:18). These are perfect scriptures for every believer who has a thirst for more of Christ. With the help of the Lord, the ministry successfully started more than six Chaplaincy Academies in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, Alabama, and the Bahamas.
