Donald Spellman is an apostle and the cofounder of Living Word of Grace Ministries (LWOGM) Inc., a nondenominational ministry. He is an author, writer, apostolic Bible teacher, and former pastor of over twenty-one years, and has been in radio ministry since 1992. Additionally, he’s the author of four books (Christ Still Heals, Words Have Great Power, Freedom from Spiritual Bondage, and God’s Magnificent Grace). Spellman was born in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, and graduated in 1982 from Northeastern High School. In 1983, he joined the US armed forces, where he worked in Battalion S-1 Headquarters as a personnel administrative specialist in the US Army until he retired.
After serving in the military, he was diagnosed with cancer and was healed by Christ in 1988. Subsequently, after giving his life to Christ in 1985 and serving as an ordained deacon in Germany, he was called to the ministry in 1989 and later ordained in 1991. After ministering and carrying out the work of an evangelist for a short period in 1992, he and his wife launched and founded LWOGM Inc. In 1995, he joined the US Postal Service, where he worked as a letter carrier until he retired in 2005 to begin full-time ministry.
As a result of serving in the pastorate for over twenty-one years, Apostle Spellman has a burden and compassionate heart for spiritual leaders and for those in the office of ministry. He and his wife operate as an apostolic ministry team. The primary objective of LWOGM and the Healing Ministry Broadcast is to win souls for the kingdom of God.
Another aspect of their ministry is to bring healing and restoration (spiritually, physically, and emotionally) to the body of Christ and to equip the saints for ministry through expository teaching of the Word of God through the work of the Holy Spirit. He and his wife have been married for more than thirty-eight years and reside in Baxley, Georgia. They have four grown sons.
