David and Verissa Walber
FOUNDERS AND SENIOR
David and Verissa Walber have raised children from all walks of life from all over the United States.
They have taken in whole families for a year to eighteen months-at-a-time to stop the cycle of abuse. The compassion, honesty
and love they show families and youth have stopped young ladies from going into prostitution and young men from fulfilling
suicide pacts or becoming gang members.
David was raised in the country and worked hard as a young man. He completed
his education, went on to college, and then joined the Marine Corp. Upon completion of his military career, he went to work
in the oil fields. Without his strength, guidance, support and moral stability, Verissa couldn’t have achieved all that
she has through Christ. He now travels extensively with his loving wife as they support each other in all their endeavors.
Walber was born in a dysfunctional home with adultery, perversion, alcoholism and abuse as the norm. In spite of adverse opinions,
Verissa "Vickie" went on to earn her diploma and bachelors degree holding a 4.0 average. Vickie has taken a
hold of life in Christ and offered it back to the surrounding community. Because of the tragic lifestyle she once led and
the following success' she has had, she has the ability to counsel people from any segment of society.
CO-FOUNDER AND SR. PASTOR
Celeste Rodgers and Vickie became friends at a young age; they
became sisters, closer than blood, depending on each other, walking the same path, suffering the same heartache and degradation.
She was completely delivered from alcohol, drugs and perversion by the power of God, never experiencing withdrawal symptoms
of any kind.
Celeste is a powerful and anointed Prophetic Teacher. She brings pearls of wisdom to the hearts of all those who listen
to the lesson she brings. Celeste has an understanding of the Word of God that can only come from the Holy Spirit; she
has the desire to share what she has learned not only in her home church but everywhere she travels. The Ministry of
the Living Stones are thankful to have her in our midst.
- Mk 16:15-18 KJV "And He said unto them, go ye into all the world, and
preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall
be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; They sahll take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly
thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
24:14 KJV "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto al nations;
and then shall the end come."
- Mt 28:19 KJV "Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."
word teach means to make disciples. We at the Ministry of Living Stones view this as our primary objective.
We will continue to use all means to accomplish the making of disciples. As God opens doors we will walk through them.
We do this where we live and in other nations.
