MINISTRY: Duane Mayfield who passed away December 19, 2017, was a man who lived by faith for many, many years. He was a pastor of 65 years, not only by profession but because of his personality and anointing. He was a pastor to pastors and is like a father to all. Giving and serving was a natural response to every situation. He prayed with strong authority and often operated in the prophetic. His 2007 faith journey through the valley of the shadow of death brought to his ministry a perspective of one who has had a brush with death and a touch from God. A friend of God, Duane lived for the Lord.
PROFESSION: From 2014-2017 Duane was the chief adviser as former Director of Horizon Ministries. He was an ordained minister who served from 2005 to 2009 on the leadership team of the Narkis Street Congregation in Jerusalem, Israel. Duane was born in Oklahoma and has lived primarily in California with many trips to Israel since 1982. He has been a minister most of his life, serving as senior pastor for five churches in California and one in Oklahoma.
