Hi, We're Pastor Fred & Pastor Valeria Rochester

Pastors Fred & Pastor Valeria Rochester founded Prevailing Word Ministries, Inc. in 1987. After a season of discouragement, they postponed pastoral ministry and joined The Harlem Tabernacle Church of NY, under the leadership of Pastors Ernest & Barbara Cameron in 1989. After receiving confirmation from the Lord, they resumed pastoral ministry in February of 1994. In obedience to the Lord, their God-ordained desire is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all the teaching of Jesus. In 2011 they also founded the William and Lessie Dye Bible Institute of Excellence in Christian Leadership starting in April 2012 which will continue in their God ordained desire to build strong leaders that will walk in the Word of God.
