Diane Ransom is a part of the Office Staff at Christian Assembly in Columbus, Ohio where Rev. Salvatore (Torry) Gligora serves as Sr. Pastor. She is founder and Director Emeritus of Messiah's Joy Dance and Banner Troupe and owner of Fit For The King Sacred Arts Garments. As dance team leader in the '80's, finding appropriate garments for sanctuary worship services was a challenging task. With nowhere to turn, Diane went to the Father who's answer was "You have the gift's I gave you as a child, now use your skills to glorify me!"
Diane developed a love for fabrics and sewing as a child watching her mother sew for everyone in their community. Trips to the fabric store, seeing and touching fabrics were a treat when other girls were thinking of slumber parties and hair and makeup. Being taught by her mother, Diane quickly mastered the manipulation of fabrics and started learning the elements of design. Later in life, as a secular dancer she made most of her own costumes and sewed for many other dancers as well.
After many years of exotic costumes, tailored suits, alterations, wedding and prom dresses ...GOD....!!. Fit For The King was licensed in 1991.
Diane now designs and manufactures garments for many churches and dance ministries throughout the U. S. and abroad including Charisma Centre for the Arts based at Christian Assembly. Her wisdom, skill and willingness to serve has taken her to the Holy Land to sew for the Feast of Tabernacles as a volunteer with International Christian Embassy, Jerusalem. Her anointed garments are worn by many well known dance ministers and Christian artists worldwide.
Diane has given over twenty five years of service at Christian Assembly in various areas of ministry including the Choir, Youth Department and Women's Ministries and has been a part of the teaching staff of Exaltation Worship and Arts Conference.
Diane is married to Rev. Morris Ransom and has one son and four grandchildren who all reside in Columbus, Ohio.
Diane is available for conferences and workshops to teach on the importance of appropriate worship garments and other dance related topics.
