Julie SealsOrdained Minister, Speaker, Author

Julie Seals is an Ordained Minister with the Pen-Florida District Assemblies of God. She has overcome Spina Bifida, a 17-year addiction to crystal methamphetamine, the amputation of her left leg, and a life sentence in federal prison to share her relentless passion for seeing people SET FREE from darkness to boldly live out the call of God upon their lives!

My Story

Giants of depression, self-hatred, and despair surrounded me on every side. I was so strung out from 17 years of alcohol and methamphetamine addiction that I couldn’t even put together a coherent sentence. My left leg had been amputated due to neurological complications from the spina bifida. My dad had died unexpectedly from lung cancer, I had run away from a failing, miserable marriage, and I had lost custody of my precious son Tyler when he was 4 years old because I was such a mess…

Recovery Mentoring 

God has called Julie to mentor, encourage, and disciple Christian women in recovery to live FREE from the chains of addiction and walk in the fullness of their Ephesians 2:10 calling.

Julie works one-on-one to mentor women in recovery who have made a life-transforming decision to follow Jesus Christ and keep the Word of God at the center of their journey. Mentoring spots are limited due to Julie’s extensive speaking and prison ministry schedule.

Prison Ministry

in prison areJulie and her husband Mike have been ministering the gospel of Jesus Christ in prisons for 17 years and counting. Mike is a full-time Senior Chaplain with the Florida Department of Corrections and brings Julie in to share her story for God’s glory. Mike and Julie hold regular chapel services where broken men find the hope to believe that Jesus died to forgive them and transform their lives right there on the inside of the razor-wire fences. Gang members, Wikkans, Odinists, atheists, backsliders, and more are responding to altar calls and getting baptized.

Julie also ministers in the Florida Women’s Reception Center in Ocala where she leads a variety of life-transforming discipleship workshops, all-day retreat experiences, and worship services. Events include testimonies, special speakers, anointed worship, and focused prayer. Many women are surrendering their hearts to Jesus Christ and trusting Him with their lives. 

As of July 1, 2024, Mike and Julie have conducted 420 prison ministry services, ministering to over 21,500 inmates.
