Charlotte Parkhurst

doz ministries Charlotte Parkhurst, Founder

In 1994, Charlotte Parkhurst was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis, a rare, crippling and sometimes fatal form of Multiple Sclerosis. Standing on God’s promise that she would “live and not die”, Charlotte was miraculously healed and now ministers to many who are healed and set free physically and emotionally by the power of God.

Charlotte speaks with the anointing and authority of God’s Word at numerous retreats, conferences, local seminars and churches, encouraging people everywhere “not to put your faith in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God”. (1 Corinthians 2:5)

  • To reach the Lost, spread the Word of Christ, and to Make a Difference.
  • To share the Message of Jesus Christ and fulfill the commandment given to us to go and reach the Lost.
  • To Touch those who have been broken and lead them to Jesus; to equip believers to stand in the midst of the trials of life; To encourage, comfort, and guide those who have lost their way; and To be a bright light for others to follow as they seek Jesus.

  • I have been living in The Widow's Home for 11 years this month and I can't tell you what a blessing it has been for me. My check didn't cover all my meds and bills. I had used nearly all my savings. It was a blessing to move here... It is a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood, and we feel safe here. The Daughters of Zion are so good to us; they do everything to make us comfortable and happy. I thank God every day that I am honored to have a home here. May God bless the DOZ for all they do to help people in need.
    Jean Fowler | Resident of Zion's Home for Widow's
  • I never thought that people who are not my family would help me so much. I have never taken my daughter to the doctor, because I had no money. Charlotte and you all are my angels. You all were preoccupied for me and my daughter, even in the most minimum details. X-Rays and clothes that I never thought I could provide for my daughter. In times of sickness you all have helped me. God bless you all because of what you all have done.
    Mother of Andrea, daughter in need
  • I am reminded of a scripture that says...the Lord will bless the borders of the widows. I have lived in the DOZ home for widows for several years. I feel loved, safe and extremely blessed. The presence of the Lord is here.
    Pauline Cobb | Resident of Zion's Home for Widows
