From a young age, LaNora was passionate about genuinely knowing Jesus. She met the Holy Spirit in 1974 when He supernaturally baptized her one night when she was praying at home.
At ten years old, LaNora found out that she had severe scoliosis. Although doctors said she would be confined to a wheelchair, a young orthopedic surgeon believed he could save her from that fate and wanted to try a new procedure. She went through multiple surgeries, intensive procedures, all with positive outcomes. The healing experience brought her closer to Jesus.
LaNora Graduated with a bachelor’s degree in communication and education, thinking she would be a school teacher. Instead, within a year of graduation, the Lord called LaNora and her husband into the ministry. They started as youth pastors and served in every capacity they could until 1983, when they became senior pastors in Mesa, Arizona. She co-pastored with her husband for 13 years and then went through a painful divorce after 31 years of marriage. However, her marriage gave her two beautiful daughters, Melanie, and Kari, and seven grandchildren.
In 2,000, Dr. Fuchsia passed on her ministry, FountainGate Ministries, to LaNora. She went on to receive a Master’s degree and an honorary Doctorate in Biblical Studies. LaNora is also a certified life coach, and all of this training serves her heart for equipping others to do the work of the ministry. To LaNora, raising up a legacy of on-fire revivalists for the Glory of God is the primary mission.
In 2012, LaNora married Jody Morin. Jody is a prophetic intercessor and serves alongside her at FountainGate Ministries International.
She currently serves in an apostolic role at Fountain of Life Christian Fellowship in Mesa, Arizona. LaNora is also the apostolic oversight for FountainGate Revival Center in Tucson, Arizona. Because LaNora felt the heavy burden to train and equip the people of God, she founded FountainGate School of Revival, an online, fully accredited Bible College. She also holds prophetic conferences focusing on Revival and refreshing God’s people.
