This part 1 of 2 interview with Dr. Donald Q. Fozard, Sr.

Apostle Donald Q. Fozard, Sr. was born in Durham, North Carolina. He is the son of the late Ila Magnum Fozard. He is married to the former Nora Lee Lyons. Together they have been blessed with eight children, Thirty-three grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. Apostle Fozard is a graduate of Hillside High School. He received a Bachelor of Theology Degree from Union Christian Bible Institute and an Honorary Doctorate Degree from Hosanna Bible College in Durham, North Carolina. 

In 1978, Minister Donald Q. Fozard, Sr., who had been ordained in the ministry for less than one year, was asked to minister at Mount Zion Baptist Church every Sunday. He became the Pastor of Mount Zion Baptist Church on the second Sunday in December 1978. In 1984, after much prayer, Mount Zion Baptist Church became Mount Zion Christian Church. Moreover, because of the growing membership, physical space at the church became gravely inadequate. Being led by the Holy Spirit, Pastor Fozard decided that the new building at 3519 Fayetteville St. would be built by faith. On Sunday, September 10, 1989, Pastor Fozard led the Mount Zion Christian Church congregation as they marched to the new 43,000 square foot edifice mortgage free. 

In 1986, God revealed to Pastor Fozard the staggering influence of secular humanism upon students in the public-school system. Thus, he along with his wife was to start Mount Zion Christian Academy. Mount Zion Christian Academy is accredited by the International Christian Accrediting Association (ICAA) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). The academy has produced successful students in an array of fields both academically and athletically. In 1982, Pastor Donald Q. Fozard, Sr. and Elder Nora L. Fozard conceived the vision for Hosanna Bible College (HBC). As co-founders of HBC respectively, initially, the objective of HBC was to prepare preachers and teachers for the gospel ministry. However, the vision has expanded to include curriculum and training that would prepare laypersons, clergy and professionals who have a God consciousness. The vision came into fruition in August 1992. In 2011, Apostle Fozard and his wife became the owners of World of Excellence Beauty College, Inc., which was formed for educational and instructional purposes, teaching young men and women the art of cosmetology.
