More About the Author


Biographical Sketch of Dr. DeAnn Torregano

Dr. DeAnn Torregano was born in San Francisco, California and grew up on the Silicon Valley peninsula in the city of East Palo Alto. In September of 1977, a marvelous change took place when a co-worker shared with her the message of God's love. She began attending daily noon-day prayer service on her lunch hour. During an evening service at the New Sweet Home Church of God in Christ, she gave her life to Jesus Christ, was born again and baptized with the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues. By divine intervention, she relocated to the lone star state of Texas in December of 1993. Her deep hunger to truly know God for herself drew her into a closer walk, a deeper manifested prayer life and the quest for biblical wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Divinity with honors in information technology and business administration in 1995 and was also conferred with a certificate of ordination as an independent minister from the International Theological University in Pasadena, California. In 1997, she accepted her call into the gospel ministry and was in observation for two years under the watchful eye of Bishop Dr. James L. Berry, Pastor and Bishop Dr. Mable L. Berry, Co-pastor of the New Birth Church of the Living God, PGT in Jacksonville, Texas. In 1998, she completed a biblical course in Theology and Preaching 101 at the PGT Bible Institute in Tyler, Texas under the instruction of Overseer W.L. Jones departing with a grade point average of 4.0. She was ordained and licensed in the Church of the Living God denomination in 1999 where she served faithfully in the capacity of Associate Minister. In 2001, she completed an additional correspondence course earning certificates in four areas of theological study from the Midway Bible Institute in Weston, Ohio.

Dr. DeAnn Torregano continued her educational quest at the Chosen Vessels School of Ministry in Jacksonville, Texas and was valedictorian (summa cum laude) in the graduating class of 2002. Upon receiving congratulatory expressions from her professors on her success of academic excellence, she received her diploma in Preachers Ethics Studies. She returned in January 2003 to earn an additional diploma in Preachers Ethics Studies II. In July of 2004, she completed another semester and made her final departure from this institution with a diploma in Discipleship Training.

In 2005, she completed the mandatory courses and the required examination to qualify as a Certified Pastoral Counselor from the Crossroads Theological Seminary in Tupelo, Mississippi. Additionally, in this same year she earned a Master of Arts in Divinity with honors in spiritual support counseling and church administration from I.T.U. After graduation she was granted entrance into the Professional Path Doctoral program there.

In 2006, she became a member of the Kingdom Builders Ministries International in Tyler, Texas. She was also welcomed into the Ministers of the Heart Fellowship of Female Ministers in Houston, Texas. She was a recipient of the 10th Annual Bishop's Gala Award Trophy in 2004. She has appeared on the talk show Sharing with Sharon as a commercial participant for the 2004 Women of Excellence Conference and a discussion panelist on the topic 2003 Women in the Ministry. She has also appeared preaching the gospel on the Just for You Ministries program which aired weekly on the Cox Cable Network in the Jacksonville and Tyler, Texas regions. She kicked off the 2004 PGT Fellowship Revival as the guest speaker at Scott's Temple Church of the Living God, PGT in Douglass, Texas. In 2003, she was appointed to the post of Advisor for the Virtuous Women of the Lord Multicultural Outreach Ministries in Atlanta, Georgia. At her co-pastors request she established a ministry for single women by creating a mission statement of purpose, coordinating the introductory program, and as its initial speak presented for the first time, the Daughters of the King Single Women's Ministry which was later renamed Single, Saved & Satisfied. She was one of five guest speakers for the 2003 Holy Women's Convocation hosted by the New Birth Church of the Living God, PGT of Jacksonville, Texas. She is registered on the clergy visiting list of the East Texas Medical Center and Trinity Mother Francis Hospital in Tyler, Texas.

When the student is ready the teacher will appear.... and in 2007 after being elevated by God to the five-fold ministry level of Prophetess as recorded in Ephesians 4:11, on the 23rd day of February she was inducted into the sacred order of P.O.M.E. (Prophetic Order of Mar Elijah) as a Neophyte of the Elite 300 Company of Prophets by Master Prophet Dr. E. Bernard Jordan in East Elmhurst, New York. Additionally, on June 3rd of this same year she left the comfort zone of the pulpit at the New Birth Church of the Living God, PGT in Jacksonville, Texas where she served faithfully from 1994 - 2007 in favor of a five year sabbatical. This time has allowed her to complete her academic adventure which concluded in May 2010 with a Doctor of Divinity degree with honors in International Church Administration and Mission Operations. She has also published her first book titled "A Façade Becomes a Symphony" which was released in December 2010. She is now working to complete her mandated assignment of establishing the "D.A.T. Angel of Light Ministries" in her new homeland of Atlanta, Georgia where she continues to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Dr. DeAnn Torregano is known for being a no nonsense student of the word of God and an uncompromised preacher of the gospel. Being led by the Holy Ghost, a zeal for academic excellence, positive mentors, and the adoption of a divinely inspired mission statement are the gifts which have given her the passion that she possesses to press forward on the battlefield of gospel ministry.

Here at last is a very compelling and motivating presentation of what
God's favor can do to impact our lives in a productive and positive way,
if we just remain focused on his awesome love for us, and who's really in control.
All we have today in this world is our faith. A Facade Becomes A Symphony, is proof
positive to how our unwavering faith in God, can put the vitality and exuberance
foe simple Christian living back into our lives. It has enlightened and taught me
to let go, and place all of my trust in God's hands.

DeAnn Torregano's, A Facade Becomes A Symphony, is a very clear and percise work,
which explains in perfect detail how God, is always close by for us, when we need him the most.
A Facade Becomes A Symphony, has also made clear to me, that it is not the pursuit of material
wealth that matters in life, but our relationship with God. This book in my opinion is the remarkable
result of what God has the power to do in all of our lives. It is quite inspiring to say the least.

This book to me back home. Many of the places and events mentioned flashed a visual in my mind and made it feel like I was there again! The author touched on some of the history of the city of East Palo Alto, as well as it's citizens like no others . I commend her for her candid honesty and courage to share her life experiences all while reminding me and others of ours . When I paused to do other things , I couldn't wait to get to the next chapter .

The author takes you step by step into the deep Labyrinth of her past.

When it is finished you start to see that her story is parallel to your own in some cosmic KARMA type way. We all walk away better for the journey. I loved the story and the Glory of God seen between the lines!

This book is written from the author's heart. It shows what God has always said "I will never leave you or forsake you" is the truth, just wait on the Lord. It was amazing to me to read this account as I was one of the Wisteria neighbors who was lucky enough to "enter the prison" but still had no idea what happened after I left. I thank God for DeAnn and truly admire her strength and resolve to tell her story. This story made me reflect on how exceptional Godly mothers are, I also thank my own mother and all our Wisteria mothers who pointed us to the Lord. The encouragement to have strength renewed every time circumstances knock us down is real lesson to be learned by reading this book.

It's like reading your own story, because the place is real. The beginning and present has comes in making peace within. I'm excited and proud that she brought her own journey to share with other. I learned so much about hidden self-control means and how God words can make the path of healing uplifting to move forward with your life. I can relate to those mile stones as well. Great book, simple reading, you'll be asking for more from the writer. "A Facade Becomes A Symphony" everyone must read it will touch your heart and most of all I thank you for the memories!!!
