Rosella Angel Ridings

The eldest child of eight, growing up in a pastor's home, Rosella travelled the world with her parents. After graduating from High School, her parents moved to New Zealand and it was there she met her future husband, Howard J. Ridings. Her parents, the Rev's Harvey and Rose Ferrell, set the example for living a life of faith. The call of God led to a life of adventure with her New Zealand born husband, the late Dr. Howard Ridings. Together they ministered in twenty-seven countries and established churches and various ministries in Florida, Singapore, and Hong Kong. 

As the wife of the late Dr. Howard Ridings, Rosella was very comfortable with life! She was co-pastor of Heart of Orlando Worship Center and Director of Special Events for Charisma Media. But following the death of Dr. Ridings, life changed immediately! The change began when she said; “God, you tell me what to do and I will be obedient.” 

To her surprise, she became Senior Pastor of the church followed by many opportunities to keep her commitment to be obedient. One of the things that God spoke to her to do was “To make a difference in the building at Metro World Child.” From this word was the founding of Metro Hope For Kids in May, 2011. Following a ministry trip to Asia in 2014, God again spoke to her saying, “You can do something for the little girls in the orphanage in Nagaland.” Her response was, “Yes, God, I can do something.” 


She has written articles for various publications and produced tracts, manuals, brochures, booklets and newsletters. She also designed and had manufactured the JESUS Witness

watch and clock, tools to help you share your

faith in Jesus Christ.

You will hear Rosella say often, “God is so amazing!”  as she excitedly talks about all God is doing through Metro Hope For Kids. She says, “It’s not good enough to have seen God move in the past, but what is He doing in your life today.”
