Reverend Florence Edwards was
the Assistant Pastor at Hope Memorial Spiritual Church, from the date of her
ordination in 1972 until 1982. At which time, her mother, Reverend Gertrude
Leivers became Pastor Emeritus, Reverend Edwards took over as Head Pastor and
still holds the honour of that position today.
Reverend Edwards is a gifted medium, spiritual healer
and deep trance medium. Her unique spiritual gifts have allowed her to train
many students over the years. She has also guided and assisted countless
individuals along their paths.
|The church was originally founded by Reverend Edwards parents, Mr.
Leslie Leivers & Reverend Gertrude Leivers. The church was formed and its'
Charter was granted in March of 1949, at which time, Mr. Leslie Leivers and Mr.
William Richardson, put up their houses as collateral to purchase the original
building at 15 Chatham Street in Brantford, ON. The church has since relocated
to 192 Darling Street in Brantford, ON.
This entire site was designed
for Reverend Edwards as a gift for all of the wonderful things she has done. In
her typical, gracious generosity & caring, she allows the church to use it,
so all would be able to benefit from it.
||Reverend Cheryl Tuck
Reverend Cheryl Tuck, was born in Brantford Ontario, but
moved to Woodstock, Ontario at a young age. While in Woodstock, she attended
church where she became involved in the youth program and Sunday school.
Eventually, she became the President of the youth group and a Sunday School
teacher for many years.
Even though she was involved, within her heart
she felt that something was missing. Her journey led her back to Brantford. She
was invited to Hope Memorial Church, Sunday evening service by a friend. She
was given so much proof that night that she decided to go back the following
week. Once again, she was given proof that life did certainly continue after
|She continued to attend Sunday services and was invited to join
development class. It was there that her gifts of healing, clairvoyance,
clairaudience, clairsentience and trance were developed. She was ordained at
Hope Memorial Spiritual Church by Rev. Florence Edwards in May of 1995.
In her words; "As Assistant Pastor, it is my desire to help others
to find the peace, and love that I have within; to be able to know and accept
that we are loved unconditionally by our Father God and as we take time to
listen to his words, our hearts will be filled with joy and our lives will
experience many blessings. It is in the giving of ourselves with loving intent
that we are blessed tenfold."
