Eunice Rochelle (Kelsaw) Taylor, was born on Friday, December 21, 1956 to Curtis White, Sr. and Marcella Kelsaw at Parkview Memorial Hospital, Fort Wayne, Indiana. She transitioned on Sunday, November 15, 2020.
Eunice grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana and graduated from Northrop High School in 1974. She loved her family deeply.
Eunice was a saved, sanctified, Holy Ghost filled woman of God. She was saved under the ministry of the late Bishop Jimmie Clark, Sr. Her greatest desire was to please God in every area of her life, and to win souls to the Kingdom of God.
Eunice worked for multiple employers in Fort Wayne – YMCA, Prosecutor’s Office, Bunche Elementary School, Lutheran Hospital, Northeast Indiana Urology, with her job assignment as Pastor, Lead Chaplain and Group Facilitator of a Christian Based Homeless Facility, The Charis House. God has blessed her to attain her master’s degree in Organizational Leadership “with the help of the Lord (her signature phrase). Her endeavor is to serve in the capacity that God has ordained for her life by helping and ministering to individuals that are broken, hopeless, bound with addictions. She had a great love for God’s people and a true burden for lost souls.
She is a member of Wings of Deliverance Tabernacle Holiness Church, under the leadership of Pastor Robert Clark. She was a member of the Outreach Team, The Rescue Mission, The Prison/Jail Ministry and Life Recovery Ministry. But the greatest call on her life is to live the life of HOLINESS. God placed the call of Evangelism on her life years ago, so it is extremely important to her to live what she preaches.
I Corinthians 9:14 says, “Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.”
