Mourning Glory is a ministry whose purpose is to provide a place where participants can learn how to cope with the emotions that accompany the loss of a loved one, where they can express their true feelings of grief, fellowship with others who truly understand their pain, and begin the journey to healing. It's our calling to comfort, encourage, and support all those who join us.
Mourning Glory Ministries desires to empower, through the word of God, all those who have lost a loved one in order to live a joyful and healthier life, to provide friendship, educational seminars, conferences, and a variety of therapeutic activities designed to renew both men and women of all ages.
Mourning Glory would like to invite you to join us. We always look forward to meeting new people from the community. Please check out our events page and know that everyone is welcome.
On May 30, 2002, Teresa Stewart Davis’ father Deacon Joe Stewart passed away, which proved to be a devastating loss for her mother and their entire family. As a daughter watching her mother go through the grieving process, she found herself ministering her mother through this major storm in her life. Ultimately, she moved from Florida to El Paso to help her mother through her grieving process. Shortly after the move, however, Teresa personally experienced a similar and traumatic loss of her husband Rev. Charles Bell in August of 2007, as he become terminally ill and passed away.
Ironically, the person she came home to strengthen was now, with God's help, strengthening her. As a result of these experiences and God’s calling, the idea of Mourning Glory Ministries was conceived and later came to fruition in February of 2008.
In response to God’s call, Minister Teresa Stewart Davis and Joyce Stewart have built a ministry and support group that caters to the special needs of widows, widowers, and others who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Specifically, this ministry focuses on a holistic approach of body, soul, and spirit done through the word of God, conferences, and various therapeutic activities. The ministry’s ultimate purpose is to foster change in our culture where widows, widowers, and other survivors are respected and valuable members of our society.
