About The Ministry Leaders

“The most radical social teaching of Jesus Christ was His reversal of the contemporary notion of greatness. Leadership is found in becoming the servant of all.”

 J.D. Martineau, M. Div., is an ambassador of the Kingdom of God, Organizer, Apostolic Voice and Senior Pastor/Teacher at Liberty Temple House of Prayer (formerly Deliverance Church of Jesus Christ), in the thriving “Blessed and Highly Favored of the Lord” city of Chester, PA (Proverbs 8:21; Romans 4:17; II Cor. 4:13).

J.D. Martineau has served as a national gospel preacher, singer (and musician in his own rite), since 1985, and was officially licensed to preach in 1987. He has attended several Biblical Institutions of higher learning, and completed them with accreditation. He has traveled extensively into areas and countries such as: Canada; Nassau Bahamas; Kingston Jamaica and other parts of the West Indies; Zimbabwe Africa, and over 30 of our united states, singing and preaching the Life Changing Good News!

November 1, 1998, he was consecrated into Apostleship (a bishop of apostolic work), by a company of Apostles, Bishops and Elders from several denominations. He now humbly serves as spiritual covering, Founder and Lead Intercessor for IUIC Prayer Partners.

Working together, hand-in-hand as a team, they embarked upon this divinely-inspired vision of “changing lives for the better” in January of 2003.

“Pastor Jo-el and Lady Rhonda”, as they are affectionately known, demonstrate love, humility and servitude by exemplifying our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Daily by God’s grace and favor, with love, patience and long-suffering, they reach out to all people, regardless of their past. Ushering men, women, boys, girls and entire families into their destiny, purpose and life fulfillment, promoting “The Unspeakable Joy in Living for the Lord Jesus Christ!”

Through the power and love of the Father, the Martineau’s are preaching the Whole Truth of the commandments and the gospel, defending the faith, strengthening the saints, winning the lost, and standing ready to serve all!
