Vickie Oliver is an international evangelist called to “Family Ministry.” For the last 27 years, she has traveled in 48 states and 5 foreign countries, while ministering to people of all ages, in many types of venues including crusades, junior youth camps, vacation bible schools, and conferences. She has also ministered to ladies across our fellowship, in both District Ladies Conferences and local assemblies, for the last 15 years. Cumulatively, over 15,000 have received the Holy Ghost where she has ministered at both home and abroad.
Additionally, Vickie shares her personal testimony and journey in ministry through the pages of “Birthing Your Burden in Children’s Ministries,” a powerful book that has caused many to weep and birth their own ministry in prayer while reading it.
Vickie humbly says that she’s just an “ordinary person with a love for souls.”
