I was born on January 16th, 1977, with a congenital disability known as Apert’s Syndrome. My name is Dorsey and when I was born, my forehead was pushed outward, my nose and mouth were pushed inward, and my fingers and toes were fused, meaning I had no individual movement of them. Doctors gave my parents no hope for my survival and advised them to put me into an institution. My parents both knew and trusted in God, and they believed that God would do great things in my life. Throughout my life, I had to overcome a lot of obstacles, and trials, being bullied, called names like monster and freak, and undergone multiple operations. Teachers told me I would not make it in college, and with all odds against me, I entered Queens Borough Community College. After four years there, and after attaining an associate degree, I entered the University of Valley Forge. After years of hard work and perseverance, I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Youth Ministry. My life saying is, "can’t is not in my vocabulary" because, for most of my life, I never used the word can’t. I believe that with God, all things are possible and that he can do all things through Christ who gives him strength.
I started Dorsey Ross Ministries in the summer of 2007, after giving my testimony at Bellerose Assembly of God. Since that time, I traveled all over the country. I enjoy giving an encouraging message of what God has done in my life. I want to use what I went through, to encourage and inspire others. I want others to know that God can use them, no matter what life challenges they are facing. I want those that hear my testimony to walk out the doors of the church to be empowered, inspired, and encouraged, knowing that if God can use Dorsey, He can use anyone.
