Born, and raised in New York City, Evangelist LeTonya Mays currently works for a New York City based Police Department Agency, in the area of Communications. Once formerly employed by the New York Police Department, she was one of the spearheads responsible for establishing a place of prayer in the workplace which still remains today. "It is everyone’s right to have a suitable place to pray" she says, especially in the area of Police Emergency and Communications. In an eight - sixteen hour tour period, we get to experience firsthand how one incident can forever change people’s lives. Being able to pray and be fortified for the situations we face daily not only helps us do our job more effectively, but it helps us to help the person on the other end of the phone or dispatching console. God places believers in places where His Light can shine brightly. Even in the midst of the storm or in the least likely of places".
On New Year’s Eve in 1989, while some were getting ready for parties and family gatherings, LeTonya brought in the new year on her knees asking Jesus to become her personal Lord and Savior. This change came about after discovering that although she was brought up in the church, and attended services on a regular basis, she was yet and still destined for eternal separation from God because she didn't have an intimate relationship with the Lord. From there, she took off running, helping, distributing tracts, singing, witnessing, praying and ministering to all God sent her way. Many have been blessed to hear her testimony of how the Lord literally saved and delivered her from struggles with depression, suicide, molestation, sexual assault, and other abuses through her trust and faith in God. Everything LeTonya has gone through has worked together for her good, and to the glory of God. If you were to ask her to sum up the experiences of her past, she would reply, "In spite of all I've been through, my soul still cries out for greatness in God."
In 2005, the Lord gave her the vision for Amazing Life Ministries. It is through this vision that the above branches and extensions of ministry were birthed. LeTonya has learned how to turn her hurts, disappointments, heartaches, and pain into power so the body of Christ will be impacted, empowered, enlightened and edified.
