Some Members of Ocean of Mercy Ministry & Church
David West is the Senior Minister and Leader of the Ocean of Mercy Ministry which he co-founded with his wife, Evangelist Fortune West. David is a dynamic entrepreneur who has successfully run many companies for years. Many years ago, God called David to become a fisher of men and he answered His call, even as he ran his multiple business ventures.
As a successful business man and wonderful husband and father, David ascribes his life’s success to no other than the Triune God (God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit). Since his late teens and early twenties, David learned to depend completely on God as he went to school in the Netherlands where he had to also fend for himself. He completed his education in Business Management and went on to start his own international clothing merchandizing and other businesses. David will gladly acknowledge to anyone that without God, his life would have been meaningless and that he would never have had the success he has today. His Favorite song is “Never would have made it…” by Marvin Sapp.
God has anointed David to be a leader; but his is also a humble servant who serves the needs of others before his. He has utmost reverence for God and never does anything that will dishonor God’s Holy Word. His own personal life is a shining example of a wonderful husband and father according to God’s Word.
God has called David to evangelize cities and nations in Europe and around the world. Like Apostle Paul, Peter and other early disciples of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, David has answered God’s call with humility, honesty and integrity. He does not look to receive recognition or accolade from anyone; he simply keeps his eyes on the Cross! He is fully committed to doing God’s holy work.
Evangelist Fortune West’s ministry started when she was just a child. She was raised by a God fearing mother who taught her the love of Jesus Christ and sowed early in her life the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Also, early in life, God’s gift of prophetic anointing began to manifest in Fortune’s life and soon it was discovered that in addition to the powerful evangelism ministry God had released in her, she also has the anointing of the office of a prophet. Over many years, in obedience to God’s spoken word through her, she has released accurate prophetic word that has blessed so many lives.
At a tender age of sixteen years, she left for the Netherlands to further her education. There, she began to learn how to depend solely on God and she grew even closer to Him. God’s grace continued to manifest in her life as she completed her education in the catering and hospitality business. It was also in the Netherlands that she met and fell in love her wonderful husband, David West, now Senor Minister and leader of the Ocean of Mercy Ministry in Cork, Ireland.
While Fortune is a dynamic business woman and money manager, her close walk with God has taught her to submit to His will and to prioritize His work to the glory of His Name. After moving to Cork, Ireland, with her husband and son, Fortune acquired more skills, including first aide management; however, none of her business skills ever takes precedence over God’s work.
In addition to running their family business, Fortune also operates in the office of an evangelist and prophet at the Ocean of Mercy that she co-founded with her husband David West. She is also the co-administrator at Ocean of Mercy.

”But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”[a] (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
