Pastoral Staff


Apostle Chad Collins

                                                  Apostle Chad Collins was born in Louisville Ky.

   After experiencing salvation and being born again right before his 22nd birthday brother Collins was
baptized in the Holy Ghost and immediately began having prophetic dreams. He began dreaming
literally every day: prophetically concerning personal affairs, world events, and things to come. Apostle
Collins was mentored in the things of the spirit pertaining to the Holy Ghost, under his late father
prophet Ted Collins.


    Shortly after his conversion and his receiving of the baptism of the Spirit he received his first visitation
from Jesus. Jesus walked down his hallway and told him to follow him. From that day the Lord has made
many appearances either by dream or vision to Apostle Collins who has been mandated of the Lord to
preach the gospel and demonstrate the Kingdom of God. Since his initial conversion Apostle Collins has
been a preacher of the gospel and teacher of the Word!


     The Lord has bestowed a mighty prophetic, miracle, and healing ministry on Apostle Collins’s life and
ministry; along with his revelatory teaching God confirms the word with mighty signs and wonders. The
prophetic words and miracles through the hands of this man of God are literally too many to number.
The Lord has raised up this ministry to prepare the church for the coming of the Lord. Apostle Collins
sees himself as just one of God's servants, along with the rest of the fivefold ministry of the body of
Christ. As a face-to-face Prophet, he simply walks in the role and authority the Lord has bestowed upon
him in conjunction with the church.


      Apostle Collins now oversees churches in Kentucky in two locations: Miracle Life, Bowling Green Ky and
Miracle Life, Louisville Ky. Brother Collins has operated in the prophetic ministry for nearly 30 years. He has ministered overseas in countries / nations such as Africa and Cuba.

Apostle Collins lovely wife is First lady Malyssa Collins who is an anointed prophetic psalmist! They reside currently in Louisville Kentucky with the rest of their family. Apostle has three adult children: Steve, Shayna, and Isaiah.

This program was her own personal creation that was approved by the Department of Labor and sought to progress juniors and seniors, who were in an underprivileged, underserved position, into furthering their education with hopes for a better quality of life. 1st Lady has a graduate and Undergraduate degree from NY University and is currently a business owner.

   In 2010, Pastor Lonnie was introduced to Apostle Chad Collins, and it was after those early meetings Pastor Lonnie knew there was something missing in his ministry, which was power and the Spirit. Later, in the early stages of Apostle Chad and Pastor Lonnie’s relationship; Pastor Lonnie received the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Not long after that experience, Pastor Lonnie joined Miracle Life Ministries. In 2015, Pastor Lonnie had the privilege and honor to establish Miracle Life Center in Bowling Green, Kentucky with Apostle Chad. Pastor Lonnie currently serves as the Executive Director of Miracle Life Ministries, which Pastor Lonnie oversees the day-day operations of both churches as well as the online ministry.
