Juanita Francis, born in London, United kingdom is the eldest daughter of Bishop John & Co-Pastor Penny Francis, The Senior Ministers of Ruach City Church, UK.
Juanita has attained a Distinction Level National Diploma in Performing Arts and is the CEO and Founder of Mechowlah Dance Company which launched on the 24th February 2012. Throughout her ministry, Juanita has ministered through dance on various platforms: The ‘Weapons of Power’ Conference hosted by Prophetess Juanita Bynum, the ‘Order My Steps’ Conference hosted by her father, Bishop John Francis, The TBN Programme and The ‘Dancing With Authority’ Conference hosted by The Chenaniah Praise Dancers. Over the years, Juanita has ministered throughout the UK and abroad in the USA–Atlanta, Florida, Charlotte, North Carolina, Houston, Texas, Philadelphia and Puerto Rico and more.
In 2009 Juanita produced her first Dance DVD called; ‘Juanita Francis…. Celebrating 10 years…’ The DVD was a range of her most favourite dances with ‘Close-up & Personal’ Interviews about Juanita and how she became a dancer. Her desire is to inject a Spirit of Excellence into each individual, cultivating their gift and always reminding them that they are ‘Dancing for An Audience of One!’
Juanita Francis later transitioned from dancing to speaking. With the full support and encouragement of her parents, Juanita began ministering the word at the age of 15 years and not only preaches but also teaches at her local church, Ruach City Church, UK. She also serves as a Praise and Worship Leader more recently as a Youth Pastor at the Kilburn Location.
As a national and international speaker, Juanita has graced many platforms, some of which include The Power House Ministry, Birmingham, UK, the COGIC East District Youth Convention, UK, The “Worship Unrestrained” Conference in Puerto Rico, “Project Outpour”, Atlanta, GOHAOC Convocation, NJ, Conferences in Europe and more recently on the Word Network. Her ministry of the Word is unique and remarkable but not surprising as she is birthed from such a powerful anointing.
In 2013, Juanita embarked on another area of ministry as a Presenter on Ruach Radio with her show “Real Talk”. On the show Juanita interviews different people who speak candidly about their unique life experiences and give personal perspectives on their Christian walk.
In 2016, Minister Juanita began her 5am Prayer on Periscope and Facebook Live, where people connect together from all around the world to pray. This area of ministry has also been impactful with powerful testimonies of miracles and healings.
Juanita is multi-talented but she will be the first to admit that her success comes solely as a result of the anointing that rests on her life. An atmosphere changer, her ministry ushers everyone into the presence of the Lord for an experience that is truly life changing.
On Good Friday, 14th April 2017, Juanita released her first single entitled; ‘Fall Afresh’ with a much anticipated EP on the way, which features Bishop John Francis, Maranda Curtis, Cheryl Fortune and more.
Juanita believes her calling is not just confined to the ‘four walls of the church’ but is also to the Nations. Her heart for God’s people is evident through her passion and ministerial drive. Her desire is that through her ministry, she will see signs and wonders, lives changed, people delivered, set free to fulfil their purpose. For Juanita, it’s simple – There is no limit to what God can do with a yielded vessel and so she gives her all, to the Glory of God.
I just love God; He’s amazing. All I want to do is to make Him smile
