On February 1, 2015, in an effort to fulfill the Great Commission given by Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20, Reverend Bell under the guides of the Holy Spirit launched The Greater Life Christian Center "NO LIMITS" weekly on WMCN. In 2016, the GREATER LIFE TODAY television broadcast was launched on Trinity Broadcast Network TBN Philadelphia channel 48. Currently, the broadcast airs on Sundays 3AM on WACP channel 4 which serves over 2.6M viewers in the Delaware Valley area.

Reverend Bell continues to develop and refine her gifts of the Holy Spirit through the Word of God, in a way that brings about change, transformation and empowerment in the lives of others. She has served as a conference facilitator for several women's workshops addressing such critical issues as Self-Image, Health and Fitness, and Breaking Generational Curses. Reverend Bell has a servant’s heart and is committed to building up the Kingdom of God by Ministering to the Unsaved and Teaching the Saved how to operate in the Power of God.
