                     Dr. Arthur Lee Wooten

Arthur Lee Wooten is a premier pastor of the 21st Century. He was saved, filled with the Holy Ghost, and accepted his call to carry the Gospel at the age of 15. Prior to that, he experienced the miraculous healing power of God. He was born with a birth defect with one leg 4 ½ inches shorter than the other. Through prayer and child-like faith, the Lord lengthened his leg. He realized he had received his healing when he went up for a rebound playing basketball and came down on his feet at the same time. The Lord had healed him. Since that day, he has been striving to reach God’s people through preaching the word of God.
