Millions know Della Reese as an entertainer, best selling recording artist, award-winning actress, but her congregation knows her as the Reverend Della Reese Lett or Rev. Della, for short.
Dellas faith in God has always been foremost in her life and 18 years ago she became and ordained minister and founded a church. She started ministering to a small group in her own home and now the congregation has grown to over 750 active members. Rev. Della has helped to change countless lives for the better ranging from the homeless to the rich, but lost souls.
She commutes every weekend from Salt Lake City, Utah where she works on the Touched By An Angel set to her home in L.A. to be with her family and congregation. Each Sunday her message is inspiring, motivating, captivating and truly God sent. She adds real life stories (some of which are quite humorous) and relates them to scripture and the lessons from the gospel directly from the Bible.
Until recently, the Christian based Understanding Principles for Better Living Church was the best kept secret in Los Angeles. Today, two Sunday services are held at the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel in Los Angeles to accommodate the congregation while plans are being made to build a permanent church home. Although Reverend Della and the congregation have been able to raise some capital, more help is needed. Reverend Della and the congregation are praying for someone to come forward and donate approximately 2.5 acres to build a new church or an existing building of approximately 10,000 sq. ft. which can be modified. Because of her widespread congregation, any location in the Los Angeles County area is desirable.
Says Rev. Della, Anyone wishing to donate will of course be in our prayers, and, no doubt, be blessed. Along with that they will receive tax benefits for their donation.
Interested donors may contact Franklin Lett or Jim Yeates at the Understanding Principles for Better Living offices, 5839 Green Valley Circle, Suite 200, Culver City, CA 90230, (310) 641-7991.
