About The Founder

Janice Suitte

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need!” is one of Janice Suitte’s favorite scriptures (Hebrews 4:16).  Janice was born in Jamaica, W.I. and migrated to the United States at the of age 4.  She has a Master’s degree in Social Work and has been in education for over 20 years.  Janice has been married for 18 years to a wonderful man of God and they have a beautiful and gifted 12-year-old daughter who loves to sing and worship God in movement.

Janice’s first encounter with a movement ministry was at Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, NY where she served 9 years before moving to Maryland in 2004. While in Maryland, Janice yearned to be connected again with a dance ministry.  After two years of searching and praying, she moved to Virginia where she ended up joining and assisting with starting a dance ministry at Loudoun Bible Church.  A few months later, Pastor Wayne Wyatt of Loudoun Bible Church appointed her the Dance Ministry Leader. Janice has been serving in this capacity for 9 years.

One of Janice’s passion is to connect with other dance ministries and artists in an effort to restore the worship back into the church. As a result of her passion, she enrolled in EITI dance Year 1 under the leadership of Apostle Pamela Hardy. Janice received her license as a Minister of Dance in October 2011. After graduating from the program, Janice served as a mentor, coach, leader, and teacher of the Word of God.  She also worked with Gospel recording artists, Negleatha Johnson on her CD release “Latter Rain” and Tanya Dallas-Lewis’ “Rhythm in You” music video.

As Janice continued to serve the Lord, her heart for the Father grew deeply.  She sought to cultivate an intimate prayer life by enrolling in the Eagles International Intercessory Prayer Institute (EIIPI) Year 1 & 2 program under the leadership of Pastor Karen Gardner.

James Suitte hails from New York City, New York.  He is a graduate of the City University of New York where he received a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management.  James has an extensive background in corporate business operations, and has served in that capacity for over 20 years for some of the world’s largest corporations.

Having grown up in and around the bright lights of the New York metropolitan area, James is no stranger to performing.  Whether in lounges in the fashionable lower-east side or in trendy SoHo New York night clubs, James could be found swooning audiences with his smooth baritone bass ballads.  James, however, became convicted that his God-given vocal talents were needed for a deeper and more meaningful calling, and began using his gifts for God’s purpose.  With God leading him, he sang with the Christian Cultural Center Praise Team in Brooklyn, New York.  He also sang background vocals on the “Gary Anglin & the Voices of CCC“ album.  More recently, James has sung with the Loudoun Bible Church Adult Choir, and for the past 10 years with the Loudoun Bible Church Praise Team.

James realized the importance of his calling to serve and empower. He has dedicated his gifts of mentoring and counseling to propel the mission of Flames of Fire and Gold Ministries. James is a loving husband and the devoted father of one daughter.
