Overseer/Founding Pastor & Shepherdess
Heaven Hands Ministries
International Church, Inc.
After working in the secular industry for twenty-two years in 1993, she accepted The Call of God into the ministry of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, to the office of an Evangelist. She was given the vision for a church that would feed, love, empower and assist whosoever will both naturally and spiritually.
Born, raised, and educated in Chicago, Illinois, Apostle Salazar is the proud mother of two sons and one daughter in-law. To whom much is given, much is required. After accepting the call of an Evangelist, being the sole survivor of a family of four, her wilderness experience includes a temporary loss of life. Restored to this life in a tragic car wreck she surrendered her entire life to Christ, accepting the opportunity to serve him completely.
Abandoned by her spouse she lost everything she possessed in this world, with the exception of her two sons and that which was in her possession at that time. Left homeless to raise them alone, she became a virtuous woman and a powerful voice for the Lord. A Conqueror in Christ she celebrates in his victory the defeat of a past history of rejection, physical and sexual abuse. She gives all the glory to God and hails her King, Jesus Christ, for healing and delivering her by the power of the Holy Ghost! She has become an empowered Woman of God empowering others!
Today, Apostle Salazar continues to seek out and serve lives that are in need of the same love and ministry that God extended to her through his Heaven Hands, Jesus Christ.
