Wayman Othell Mitchell is the founder of Christian Fellowship Ministries or the Potters House. The Potter's House is a fellowship of 2,500 churches in 112 nations throughout the world with 51 ministering evangelists.
Wayman Mitchell states that he was converted as a born again Christian in 1953 and baptized in the Holy Ghost in 1954. He has been a Pentecostal pastor since 1960. Mitchell conducts "healing crusades," in the many countries where there are Potter's House Churches. Mitchell has been the pastor of many churches in the United States, and also in Perth, Western Australia where he was senior pastor for 3 years.
The Mitchells lived in Los Angeles while he attended L. I. F. E. Bible College in 1957–60, where he completed his Pastorate. Mitchell felt that he was drained of spirituality during this time, and felt that the school focused on academics rather than zealous spirituality. He felt that this was a detour. This greatly affected the way Mitchell discipled ministers, and preferred on-the-job training rather than bible schools.
