Prophetess Shirene Hicks established Breaking Through Barriers Ministries In 2014.  Shirene Hicks is called to the apostolic and prophetic ministry.  Shirene Hicks Ministries was designed by God to equip men and women with the necessary essentials to Break Through Barriers of limitation.  As a child she believed that all broken objects could fixed; there was never any need to throw away an item just because it had dents and bruises. She believed in fixing the problem and rebuilding the item by creating a new paradigm.  She came to believe that our very thoughts had power to shift our entire lives. 

Shirene Hicks Graduated from Living Word School of ministry in 2017.  She received her ministerial licensing under Dr. Bill Winston. As a revivalist, Her calling has taken her into the nations.  Her innovative approach has caused her to break through both spiritual and financial barriers.
