OUR PASTOR

Pastor JD Minerella is a New Englander, born in Brighton, MA. He grew up under the ministry of the Rev. Jack Mitchell at the Wellesley Park Assembly of God in Wayland, MA. After high school he followed the call of God to Zion Bible College in Barrington, RI. Upon graduation in 1990, he began his ministry as youth pastor at the Lowell Assembly of God in Tewksbury, MA. In the fall of that same year, Pastor JD married Carla Mason. 

 

His wife, Carla, was raised in St. Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada. Carla is a loving woman with a passion for God's presence and a desire to pray people through to the abundant life that God has promised them.

 

Together they would go on to serve at the Bethlehem Church in Queens, NYC. Pastor JD served as youth pastor and later as the Assistant Pastor. In September of 1997, Pastor JD was elected to serve as senior pastor of the Maranatha Assembly of God in Hampton, NH, becoming the 9th pastor in 15 years. Over the next 5 years he worked to bring restoration to the church and re-build a foundation of people through which the Lord could birth a wonderful church family.  

 

In December of 2006, following the call of God, Maranatha Assembly of God became Healing Rain Ministries and moved over to Seabrook, NH. For the next seven years we held services at the Hampshire Inn. Over that time the Lord added to our numbers and began to develop people to lead the ministries of today. 

 

In January of 2013, Healing Rain Ministries signed a rent to own agreement for it’s current facility at 49 New Zealand Rd, which ironically, is located right behind the Hampshire Inn. We held our first service on Easter Sunday (March 30th) of 2013. By the end of the year and two years ahead of schedule we purchased the building for our very own.

 

Since then we continue to grow and develop. We have established some exciting new outreach ministries with more on the drawing board just waiting for God top raise up the people to lead them to success and victory. We are so excited about what God is doing at Healing Rain. God is moving in power and there are new souls coming to Christ almost every week! Stop by and say, “Hello!” There’s always room for more. Hope to see you soon!!!
