 Delinda Redding

 President

Delinda is the founder of North County Generals, Care and Share, and Friday Variety Night. These ministries show her deep love for others and  sincere desire to see people restored, filled, and launched into their destiny.

Through her own grief in the loss of her first husband, Delinda realized she could grow bitter or better. This developed into her first women's support group called "Care and Share" which is now called "Women Warriors". 20 years later, the ministry still meets twice a month providing support and encouragement for many women.

Friday Variety Night was a youth program that came alive to give teens a safe and loving environment. Every Friday night for over five years, Delinda and her team provided a place for more than 100 teens to have fun along with Godly guidance. She made a lasting impact on the lives of many young people.

North County Generals is a ministry that began July 2013 and has continued to meet every week since that time. The Generals is a group of seasoned saints who are passionate about God and advancing His Kingdom for such a time as this. As a born leader, Delinda has an incredible gift to see the gold in people and speak God's love and encouragement into their lives, while motivating and inspiring them to step into all God has for them. With her skill of networking and raising people up, the Generals has grown into a vibrant ministry that cultivates the presence and power of God.

In her spare time, Delinda enjoys riding motorcycles, kayaking, and bicycling with her husband Wesley Redding of 20 years. She also has a daily goal of walking 10,000 steps while talking and hearing from God. You may even run into her at one of the local coffee shops where she is often seen strategizing with God.

Debra Gifford

Leadership

Debra grew up in Sacramento and met her husband, Jim, while attending Vanguard University, a Christian College in Costa Mesa. During that time, she was a featured soloist in a Christian band that toured Europe and the U.S. This is when she first became aware of a prophetic gifting as she prayed over people, however there was no name for it back then.  Later at First Assembly, she was involved in Women’s Ministries, dramas, choir, solos, and led some trios and worship services.

​The next 6 years for Debra at The House of Glory were like boot camp in the prophetic, worship team and spontaneous song. She also served on th​e Board there and in Prophetic Presbytery. When that church closed, they went to Kingsway.  She was on Apostle Brad’s worship team and they headed the Prophetic Ministry. That church also closed and they began to get teased about having the ministry of “closing churches”. Currently they have been at the local Vineyard for 17 years (and it hasn’t closed) and worked concurrently at the Healing Rooms for 14 of those years. During that time, she facilitated a Listening Prayer group for 3 years because she is passionate about helping people hear His voice clearly every day, which brings a constant awareness of His presence. 

​Debra has been with The Generals for about 6 years and she is excited about the healing and restoration that takes place there.  She loves to see people walk out their giftings and feels it is having a huge impact on the County.

Sue Klein

Leadership

Sue Klein is a committed and faithful supporter to North County Generals and Delinda Redding, who is a friend of 30 years.  Care and Share was a unifying factor when assisting in its' beginnings with Delinda in San Luis Obispo Assembly of God church.  They came to know each other well through their strengths and weaknesses.  That continues today as they share the passion to "Restore, Fill, Launch" the lovers of Christ towards their destinies and to enlarge the family of Christ through ministry, worship, learning and teaching.

Sue has taught classes on personal foundational faith-building in her churches in Lexington, KY, Vancouver, WA and San Luis Obispo, CA.  She now serves in her local Crossroads Vineyard church as back-up in opening prayer for service and in hospitality.

Business Administration has been a strength throughout her business and personal life and continued for six years in her ministry with the Generals.  More recently that has been passed on to others. 

Sue trained under Teresa Goree into Holy Spirit Prayer and how to lead groups in an orderly and prayerful manner for the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  Sue has a love for people and a desire to see them involved in meaningful ways to serve others, themselves, and to glorify God.  

I press on toward the goal to win the supreme and heavenly prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.
