Each Daughter is an active member of Macedonia Baptist Church of Sacramento, California where the Pastor is Dr. Edward L. Varnado. The Daughters serve in several church ministries including multiple choirs, the Theatrical Arts Ministry, Youth Ministry, Womens Ministry, Outreach Ministry and Praise and Worship Team. D.O.C. has been nominated Best Gospel Group in Sacramento and the Bay Area.

D.O.C. is a member of the Independent Gospel Artist Radio Alliance (IGARAA). They have also been priviledged to minister at the 2011 Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA) in Tampa, FL, where they shared the stage with some great gospel artists such as Yolanda Adams, Vashawn Mitchell & Ami Rushes.

More recently, the Daughters were blessed with the wonderful opportunity to open for the legendary Clark Sisters. A highlighted summer function featured D.O.C. serving as Praise and Worship leaders at the Northern District Baptist (NDBWA) Womens Auxiliary program. Some non-traditional venues have included park openings, birthday celebrations at area restaurants as well as in the Monterey peninsula, the Old Sacramento and San Francisco Pier 39 board walks. D.O.C.'s primary focus is sharing their faith in Jesus Christ through song. D.O.C. desires to spread Gods Word to all who have an ear and is willing to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Whatever the individual situation or need is, D.O.C.'s continual aim is to offer Christ. "There may be someone who hears the message in the song and is prompted to run to Jesus wondering what they must do to be saved. For those who are already saved, they may be encouraged to develop a closer and intimate relationship with Christ. We understand that this ministry is not about us, for it's all about God. Everything that we are is because of God and only Him. We just feel so honored that God would choose us to be part of this type of ministry", says a D.O.C. member. D.O.C. clearly states that they don't know what God has planned ahead for them. However, they will just take one day at a time while, prayerfully, drawing many people to Christ and helping all who God allows them to help. They are very firm on the statement, "It's all about Christ, not us." They realize that they were created for God's purpose and His will, and not their own. As daughters of the Most High God, they have committed to go, do, and say what God wants them to. They admitted that they are well aware of the fact that a lot comes along with this task that God has given them, but their response is that they can do all things through Christ who strengthens them. D.O.C. added, "With God being for us, He is more than the whole world against us. We will just take the blows and keep moving forward in Jesus name."
