A. Hamilton was born to Pastors Garland & Alma Chandler on May
25, 1950 in a small town called High Point, North Carolina.
Velma is the oldest of four children.
Velma Hamilton is a dynamic
woman of faith and action. Her early life, raised amidst hard
economic times, has equipped her to relate to people of all
social walks of life.
As the oldest daughter of two
ministers, the author grew up amid the grinding and segregation
of the rural South in the 1950s
Her early childhood began in
the South where she was introduced to different types of
cultures and racial issues. Her first adolescent years of
education began with attending an all black segregated school.
As a child, she watched her
parents work hard to make a living for their family. The family
experienced hard economic times. The small town they lived in
did not have many jobs. Therefore, her parents would have to
leave her brother and sisters with their grandmother in Norwood,
North Carolina, while they would go to work in New York.
Later in 1960, Velma's family
moved to California where she finished her education and her
family began to experience the better things in life.
On September 18, 1971, Velma
married R.C. Hamilton in San Dimas California, and later moved
to Phoenix, Arizona. Both she and her husband were already in
ministry but God began to call them to a higher calling. This
was the beginning of their pilgrimage, for they dedicated their
lives to God and to the ministry of Prayer and Holiness.After
residing in Phoenix, Velma and her husband R.C. relocated back
to Los Angelis California. They both could hear and
recognize the call of God and knew that God was calling them not
only to ministry but to pastor.
this pilgrimage God led them to open their first church which
was called, Prayer Time Holiness Church. God was faith to us
answering His call to ministry by send us our first faithful
member Sister Cora Evans who stood with us for 3 years before we
had another member join the church. As we taught and
preached as if we had a multitude, Sister Cora stood faithful.
Sister Cora still standing faithfully with this ministry now
for over 33years and is now known as Mother Evans.
God added to the church and we moved our location to 3790 Second
Avenue in Los Angeles. We watch God do great and mighty
things. The church began to grow. God gave us a radio
broadcast and we watched him send people to the church who
wanted to surrender their lives to God. As we
continued to trust God and seek for His guidance, God called for
me and my husband to stretch out on faith and move the ministry
back to Phoenix Arizona. We loaded up the van and many of
our faithful members left all to follow Jesus and the ministry.
Once we got established in Phoenix Arizona God commissioned us
to establish our headquarter church the King’s Chapel Altar of
We found a
place that needed much work, and the saints that God had given
us were up for the challenge. We begin to work. As we
worked and tore down old existing structures, we watch God. God
allowed us to tear down and build up; we built a ministry house
and restructured an existing church from the ground up.
our members who followed us have been blessed to start lives
with their families and God has been true to His word by
blessing many of them to now own their own homes.
Our mission is to establish
seven altars of prayers in seven different states, for the
trimming of the lamps of the Body of Christ. With this great
call and desire to walk where Jesus would lead us, a group of us
were commissioned to move to Macomb Mississippi to establish
another Altar of Prayer. When we got to Mississippi
we established another altar called Tower Chapel Altar of
Prayer. Our next stop was in Oklahoma were we then established
another alter called Upper Room Altar of Prayer. We watch God
do great and mighty works by healing people and saving Souls in
every State that we went in.
passion in ministry has been to have a heart to please God and
help His people in any way that we could. We have feed the
hungry, cloth the naked and gave shelter to the homeless.
Preached and taught Gods Holy Word when we were received and
when others scorned us. Elder Hamilton along with myself vision
has always been for souls to won for the Kingdom of God.
carrying out our task in Oklahoma we then returned to our
headquarters church in Phoenix AZ, with the zeal and passion to
continue in the work of the Lord and instituting pray altars in
the hearts and minds of all believers. We now have radio
broadcast stations in many different states, spreading the good
news of Jesus Christ all over the world. Also we now
preach teach, sing and share the gospel and saving grace of our
Lord Jesus Christ and soon coming King on the internet through
web casting that reaches around the world 7 days a week 24 hours
a day on our website
continue to move forward we know that God is going to continue
to bless His people and give us the strength to do His will.
Let Holiness Reign again and it is our pray and hope that we all
be ready to meet Jesus when He comes.
