How it all began
Donald Merrill Ely is a Prophetic Evangelist and teacher set apart by God for the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
Donald spent much of his former years being successful in the business world, as part of the engineering team which put the first man on the moon and later in 1970 moved into the real estate field, becoming a noted instructor of sales techniques, teaching salespeople and managing sales departments for several companies before opening his own successful real estate firm.
The Holy Spirit
From the very beginning God, by the leading of the precious Holy Spirit, has been preparing Donald for the ministry.
After becoming born again and 10 days later being filled with the Holy Ghost and fire – Donald, and his wife Fran, and their two children, Dan and Donna, became very active in the great teaching ministry of Calvary Assembly in the Winter Park, Florida. Under Dr. Roy Heathern ( and many other great teachers of our time) Donald learned the importance and power of the word of God in doing the work of the ministry.
