St. Louis author Prophetess Deborah Allen displaying unshakable faith through her book ‘Fierce’


But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 KJV)


FIERCE KIND OF FAITH

BUT GOD!!! A St. Louis-area Pastor, Prophetess Deborah Allen’s “Fierce” was released amid what was seemingly a trying season in the life of this devout woman of faith. Amongst the reasons is that when God had strategically given Allen instructions to compose her new book, it happened during a time in which her husband, Bishop Glen Allen Sr., had been hospitalized due to an ongoing back pain, as well as an abnormal X-ray and a possible infection in his kidney.

DALLAS — The enemy tried all he could to toss shade in her direction.

Still, Prophetess Deborah Allen was determined to stand toe-to-toe and outlast the adversary the best was she knew how — with the written word of God which, to her credit, had come wrapped up in an awe-inspiring book.
“God first gave me the vision for this book as I was driving home the end of December 2016,” Allen told Making Headline News this week.
The book to which Allen is alluding is her relatively new project entitled, “Fierce,” which officially debuted in May 2018.

A book that is comprised of 176 pages in length, Allen acknowledged that this spiritually-empowering book, by all accounts, reinforces her spiritual gifts, one of which is the gift of laying on hands and declaring healing upon the live of God’s people.

Amongst the reasons is that when God had strategically given Allen instructions to compose her new book, it happened during a time in which her husband, Bishop Glen Allen Sr., had been hospitalized due to an ongoing back pain, as well as an abnormal X-ray and a possible infection in his kidney.

“However, we learned he had stage four cancer and it had been growing inside his body undetected for about seven years,” Prophetess Allen recalled. “This was a complete shock and stage four chronic lymphocytic leukemia. As I was driving home, I was talking to God about how hard my life seemed to be, that it had been nothing but a battle. God showed me that from the beginning He was with me.”


THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD — Widely regarded throughout the Body of Christ as a fierce, dynamic, and powerful woman of God, Prophetess Allen currently serves as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Apostolic Ministries of God Church, a stint she’s held for the past two decades.

Indeed He was — and still is.

How else to explain why “Fierce” has been dubbed a “powerful, spirit-filled book” since its much-anticipated a little more than a year ago?

“The Lord breathed upon this book and filled it with a fresh wind,” said a spokesperson for Allen’s “Fierce” in a detailed breakdown of this book at Amazon.com. “Fierce was a God-inspired book as it was being written. God’s yoke-destroying anointing was loosed as this book was being penned. God’s spirit and anointing also flows as you are reading this book. Fierce prepares, instructs, and pushes the believer to put on the whole armor of God that we may be able to stand. Stand in the Lord and be fierce.”

A book that is comprised of 176 pages in length, Allen acknowledged that this spiritually-empowering book, by all accounts, reinforces her spiritual gifts, one of which is the gift of laying on hands and declaring healing upon the live of God’s people.

“He blessed me to have the gift of healing in my hands,” Allen said. “God has sustained my husband and prayer has kept him. This is the season for God’s people to walk fiercely in him.”

Widely regarded throughout the Body of Christ as a fierce, dynamic, and powerful woman of God, Prophetess Allen currently serves as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Apostolic Ministries of God Church, a stint she’s held for the past two decades.

In addition, she serves as Executive Director the L.A.M. Ministries Inc. nonprofit organization, has been married to Bishop Allen for more than 22 years, and is the mother of six children.

Widely known also as a millionaire childcare coach, Prophetess Allen is an accomplished entrepreneur, who is the director of Little Lights Childcare and Learning Center, a St. Louis-area facility that has been in operation for 10 years.

As for “Fierce,” Prophetess Allen is appreciative of the notion that this book has opened “so many doors that I could never imagine,” she said without hesitation.


“This book has opened global doors for me,” said Prophetess Allen, alluding to her Fierce TV Show and Fierce Radio. “I have been featured internationally, because of this book. My God…who would have known that ‘Fierce’ would become such a movement in my life and the lives of many others everywhere? I’m simply amazed.”


As she should, especially considering aside from her husband’s physical challenges, Prophetess Allen can testify of the fact that God has blessed her to survive her very own season in the wilderness.

SEASON THE REBIRTH — Given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years — both in the natural and the spirit — it’s obviously this devout woman of faith has been armed with the kind of faith that was accompanied by a great deal of FIERCE.

“I’ve been through molestation, an abusive first marriage, I was a battered wife, teenage mother, and countless things, yet God has birthed His purpose out of my life for His divine glory,” Prophetess said. “As a leader, I want people to know that you can live, grow, and build, despite your life’s circumstances. Jesus is able to heal, deliver, and sustain us during every season of our lives and we are fierce in Him. My book is a testimony of strength, endurance, and encouragement through the Lord.”

So much for all that shade the adversary had tossed her direction.

And, given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years — both in the natural and the spirit — it’s obviously this devout woman of faith has been armed with the kind of faith that was accompanied by a great deal of FIERCE.

The WORD Network to air Prophetess Maria Vaughn’s 4th Annual Eagle Excellence Awards in September 2019


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES PROPHETESS MARIA VAUGHN AND THE WORD NETWORK 


Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17)


Dr. Maria Vaughn wasn’t just born and raised in the church.

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, her reputation is such that she routinely goes to great lengths to advance the kingdom.

In remarkably impressive fashion for the most part.

“My mother is an evangelist and my father is a deacon,” Dr. Vaughn told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I have great support from my family, which I draw strength from.”

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — Widely known throughout the Body of Christ as Prophetess Maria Vaughn, this Crisfield, Maryland native is not only the proud Founder and CEO of Exodus Deliverance Outreach Ministries, Inc., her Lakewood, New Jersey-based non-profit organization — which has sponsored an assortment of community-related events and awarded scholarships to prospective college students — but she has gained widespread respect amongst her peers for having organized the Eagle Excellence Awards Ceremony.

Such unyielding family support, coupled with the massive divine calling on her life, have benefited Dr. Vaughn mightily, considering her ministry is steadily attracting more of global presence.

NATIONAL IMPACT — Next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards Ceremony, which will be nationally televised by The WORD Network, will be hosted by Bishop Greg Davis and will take place on September 7, 2019 at 5 p.m. EST from Lakewood, New Jersey.

An event that is entering its fourth year of existence, the Eagle Excellence Awards is widely regarded as a mandate, of sorts, whereby organizers deem it essential to honor, celebrate, and encourage Pastors, reminding them, among other things, that their immeasurable kingdom-based work is not being executed in vain.

“Although their ultimate reward will come from God, we deem it necessary to give thanks to them for the years of selfless service that they give to the Kingdom of God,” said a spokesperson for the Eagle Excellence Awards in a synopsis at https://www.eagleawards.org/.


MORE ON THE WORD NETWORK: http://www.thewordnetwork.org/

Roughly a month removed from the latest awards ceremony, Dr. Vaughn’s Fourth Annual Eagle Excellence Awards Show figures to be just as adventurous, thus attracting more of a universal presence.

That’s because next year’s event, which will be nationally televised by The WORD Network, will be hosted by Bishop Greg Davis, and will take place on September 7, 2019 at 5 p.m. EST from Lakewood, New Jersey.

Available in over 200 countries while reaching millions of viewers in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and appearing in nearly 93 million homes in the United States, The WORD Network is widely regarded as largest African-American religious network in the world. 

A venue for the next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards has yet to be determined.

WORTHY OF DOUBLE HONOR — Interestingly, Eagle Excellence Awards organizers have had the luxury of paying homage to more than 150 Pastors from around the country, in part because a number of them haven’t gotten the respect and exposure they rightfully deserve, Dr. Vaughn emphasized.

If the previous three years are any indication, it’s safe to assume that next year’s event figures to attract a slew of prominent personalities throughout the Body of Christ.

“We have been able to host many ministry leaders in the communities to bless the Body of Christ,” Dr. Vaughn said.

Amongst those leaders are Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Pastor Tye Tribbett, Evangelist Vicki Winans, Evangelist Karen Clark Sheard, Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole, Bishop Jason Nelson, Charles Butler & Trinity, the Mann’s Tour, the Bloody Win Tour, Bishop Marvin Sapp, Le’Andria Johnson, and Tasha Page Lockhart, just to name a few.

“Many leaders have been overlooked for their sacrifices and endeavors. During our Eagle Excellence Awards ceremony, we have let the leaders know that their work is not being done in vain. Our desire is to be a blessing by giving back to our youth and communities.” — Prophetess Maria Vaughn 


MUCH SPIRITUAL HOOPLA — If the previous three years are any indication, it’s safe to assume that the 2019 Eagle Excellence Awards figure to attract a slew of prominent personalities throughout the Body of Christ.

Also, next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards will be comprised of what Dr. Vaughn said are “specific changes,” most notably a newly-established production team, a variety of commercials and promos months leading to the event, as well as new marketing strategies that will enable organizers to enhance the event’s vision.

In addition, Dr. Vaughn and her staff are devising more effective and strategic ways to implement networking and continuing long-term relationships, all the while adding more volunteers and community involvement, particularly as it relates to creating more activities to brand the forthcoming Eagle Excellence Awards, she said.

Accomplished Mid-South businessman Oginga Carr: ‘It is my destiny to help 10,000 people achieve their dreams’

Earlier this week, Oginga Carr was asked why it is imperative that he esteem and inspire others daily.

To his credit, Carr fielded the question as if he expected it.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — Much to his delight, Oginga Carr has evolved as an efficient and resourceful businessman, most notably through Epiphany Consulting LLC, a Mid-South-area company that is widely regarded as an organizational structure venture that customarily helps with coaching and consulting for businesses and individuals so that they could appropriately find compliance and clarity.

“Without inspiration, there is no life,” Carr said during an interview with Making Headline News this week. “We need to be not only inspired, but edified.  When we edify one another we grow.  I really don’t care about your what or your why. I care about your how.  We help people find their how.”

Indeed he does.

Carr, in fact, has evolved mightily as an efficient and resourceful businessman, most notably through Epiphany Consulting LLC, a Mid-South-area company that is widely regarded as an organizational structure venture that customarily helps with coaching and consulting for businesses and individuals so that they could appropriately find compliance and clarity.

A native of Little Rock, Arkansas who has been dubbed “One of America’s Top Trainers,” according to various media pundits in a detailed description of Carr’s venture at http://www.ogingacarr.com/, Carr doesn’t shy away from the notion that Epiphany Consulting is unique, in large part because human resources is something we all need.

“Our unique proposition is that we offer you help at developing structure in your organization and your life,” said Carr, whose immense entrepreneurship track record spans a little more than a decade. “Many times business owners are great at a skill, but aren’t very good at the business.”

NATIONAL PRESENCE — A native of Little Rock, Arkansas who has been dubbed “One of America’s Top Trainers,” according to various media pundits in a detailed description of Carr’s venture at http://www.ogingacarr.com/, Carr doesn’t shy away from the notion that Epiphany Consulting is unique, in large part because human resources is something we all need.

For what it’s worth, this is where Carr’s progressively effective business comes into play.

A proud of alum of Little Rock Parkview High School — where the former multi-sport athlete lettered in football, basketball, and baseball — Carr also is an accomplished author, a national seminar leader, as well as an organizational structure expert and consultant.

Interestingly, this Henderson State University graduate is armed with roughly 17 years of experience in sales, management, and Human Resources.

“His passion is in the dynamic of change…dealing with it, working through it, and preparing for it,” said a spokesperson in a detailed description of Carr and his venture at http://www.ogingacarr.com.

Not only that, Carr’s professional resume is solid and diverse, considering he has worked in the telecommunications, flooring, and print industries. For those reasons, he has been appropriately labeled a “serial entrepreneur,” of sorts.

Carr’s primary focuses are geared largely on productivity through structure and human capital development, and he has trained tens of thousands of HR professionals in approximately 49 U. S. states.

Which, much to his delight, is mostly befitting, considering Carr has even had a hand in functioning as a magazine publisher, radio and television show host, not to mention having assumed the role as executive director of a non-profit foundation, among other capacities.

“My mission is to develop more clarity, content, and consistency in our lives,” Carr said. “If we are clear about our goals, then content of those goals are achievable and we can be consistent in our actions. We can be successful in our lives.”

REMARKABLE TRACK RECORD — Carr’s professional resume is especially diverse, considering he has worked in the telecommunications, flooring, and print industries. For those reasons, he has been appropriately labeled a “serial entrepreneur,” of sorts.

Carr credits the bulk of his success as a thriving businessman to his father, whom he said was undoubtedly one of the biggest inspirations in his life.

Though Carr’s father passed away in 2007, he acknowledged that “he lives with me every day in my actions. He believed that we are a family related by affinity, if not through consanguinity.”

“That means that people who are striving to achieve goals in life are related by their love and passion to improve, even if they are not related by blood,” Carr added. “I welcome all Dream Achievers to my family.”

There is, by all accounts, a valid reason for which Carr essentially has rolled out the figurative red carpet to those who aspire to connect with him.

LISTEN TO HIM — “Our unique proposition is that we offer you help at developing structure in your organization and your life,” said Carr, whose immense entrepreneurship track record spans a little more than a decade. “Many times business owners are great at a skill, but aren’t very good at the business.”

“We live by a hashtag, #teamcrushingit,” Carr said. “That means that we are crushing those obstacles that are in front of us.  We are getting to our goals faster than we thought we could.  We are crushing life.”

In the foreseeable future, Mid-Southerners — Memphians in particular — will be afforded the golden opportunity to learn more about Carr and Epiphany Consulting in a trio of informative events:

  • I Dream I Achieve: The Business Blueprint.  This event is geared toward developing the mindset and the business structure to succeed in business.  “It is the best business development conference in the Mid-South,” Carr said. “We develop events that are all about giving you the skills that you need to be great.”
  • DAD KNEW BEST — Though Carr’s father passed away in 2007, he acknowledged that “he lives with me every day in my actions. He believed that we are a family related by affinity, if not through consanguinity.”

    The Breakthrough Accelerator Bootcamp. “This event is all about accelerating those breakthroughs in your life,” Carr said. “In that event, we celebrated the rebirth of your dreams. How can we cultivate those dreams and be ready to be great?”

  • The Limitless Summit.  “This event is all about creating a limitless life and limitless business,” Carr explained. “What are the keys to living limitless?  We develop those there.”

Also, Carr announced that two new events are presently in the works: Limitless Summit in Fort Worth, Texas and the IDIA Mastermind Retreat in Mexico, where attendees will engage in a five-day experience, during which they will, as Carr said, make those quantum leaps in our lives.

“It is my destiny to help 10,000 people achieve their dreams in 2018,” Carr said. “We are helping people achieve those dreams through products, events, coaching, and consulting, and we are so happy about the outcomes.”

Washington, D.C. area realtor Aaron Person making much noise in ever-so-competitive real estate industry

Just recently, longtime Washington, D.C. area realtor Aaron Person was asked why is it important to esteem others daily highly than himself, a notable suggestion by which the Apostle Paul once offered to the church at Philippi.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — An Upper Marlboro, Maryland native and an alumnus of North Carolina Central University, Aaron D. Person is widely known as a licensed Realtor® in Washington, D.C. and greater Maryland areas, most notably as a fixture with Exit Bennett Realty, located at 7701 Greenbelt Road, Suite 100, in Greenbelt, Maryland.

As usual, Person was rather forthright and straight to the point.

“Purchasing a home for most people is the biggest investment they’ll make in life,” Person told Making Headline News. “It’s imperative that people understand the financial power that can be gained from being a home owner.  There are far more advantages to owning opposed to renting.  It’s extremely important to ensure that people understand those advantages.  Then, when ready, help them find a house to call home.”

To his credit, Person’s reputation is such that his keen professionalism as a realtor has been nothing short of impressive since he embarked upon this ever-so-competitive real estate industry in March 2004.

An Upper Marlboro, Maryland native and an alumnus of North Carolina Central University, Person is widely known as a licensed Realtor® in Washington, D.C. and greater Maryland areas, most notably as a fixture with Exit Bennett Realty, located at 7701 Greenbelt Road, Suite 100, in Greenbelt, Maryland. 

Having adopted the trade name, “The House Person,” Person would be the first to admit that arguably his grandest feeling in his profession is when homebuyers reach the much-anticipated closing stage of what can otherwise be a stressful, yet sometimes discouraging process.
“I love handing a first time home buyer the keys to their house,” Person said. “I feel honored to play a small role in the acquisition of the largest financial investment most people make in their lifetime.  It’s definitely a life-changing moment for people, and I’m fortunate enough to have a front row seat.”

 

MAN OF COMPASSION — “Purchasing a home for most people is the biggest investment they’ll make in life,” Aaron Person told Making Headline News. “It’s imperative that people understand the financial power that can be gained from being a home owner.”

In addition to Person’s compassion for his clients, amongst his key objectives as a veteran realtor is ensuring that others along with homebuyers benefit in some shape or form.

In a nutshell, it’s safe to assume that when home seekers entrust Person to help them garner favorable results during their home-buying process, others affiliated with the upcoming transition will greatly reap the celebratory benefits in some aspect.

That’s “The House Person” for you.

“I used to say that I help people buy and sell houses, which is true on the surface,” Person explained. “What I really do is foster economic development on the city, county, state, country and global levels. Every time someone buys or sells a house, that transaction helps to employ everyone associated with any part of a house. That includes the manufacturer of all items in the house, to the people who transport these items, to the people who actually installed them in the house.”

As for those who have greatly fueled his desire to maximize his potential, thus live daily on the larger side of God as we are reminded according to Philippians 4:13, Person acknowledges that renowned life coaches Les Brown and Eric Thomas essentially top his list.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Speaking of classrooms, aside from enabling homebuyers to fulfill their long-awaited dreams of making the lofty transition to their home, Person is now devising ways to better educate home seekers and potential homebuyers through informative, life-enhancing seminars.

“The inspiration for the public speaking side of things would be Les Brown and Eric Thomas,” Person said. “Both offer some great motivational content” As far as the teaching side of things, it’s because my 8 ½ year working in PG County classrooms.”

Speaking of classrooms, aside from enabling homebuyers to fulfill their long-awaited dreams of making the lofty transition to their home, Person is now devising ways to better educate home seekers and potential homebuyers through informative, life-enhancing seminars.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT — To his credit, hosting seminars isn’t new to Person, who first began such a trend approximately two years after he made his professional real estate debut.

“I expect to continue providing great content during the home buying seminar I host,” Person said. “I also expect everyone who attends a Seminar to receive enough information that they feel comfortable enough with the home buying process that they’re ready to engage in that process.”

To his credit, hosting seminars isn’t new to Person, who first began such a trend approximately two years after he made his professional real estate debut.

“I’ve taught the working with a Realtor® portion of a Home Buying Seminar for various non-profit organizations in the DC/Metro area since 2006,” Person said. “I started hosting my own events in September 2015.”

GREAT COMPANY — As for those who have greatly fueled his desire to maximize his potential, thus live daily on the larger side of God as we are reminded according to Philippians 4:13, Person acknowledges that renowned life coaches Les Brown and Eric Thomas essentially top his list.

Looking ahead, don’t expect Person to slow down anytime soon, particularly as it relates to his well-publicized career as a flourishing realtor.

By and large, given the success he’s enjoyed in recent years, coupled with his wealth of knowledge in this industry, it’s safe to say that his best and brightest days undoubtedly are well ahead of him.

“In addition to the Home Buyer Seminar I host, there is a follow up session available that goes deeper into the financials of how to prequalify for a mortgage, curing credit & writing a winning offer,” said Person, sounding just as confident about his craft as ever before. “Upon departure, attendees are pre-approved or at least know what specifically they need to do in order to get pre-approved.  But to me, the best is that my team and I provide educators who utilize our services during the home buying process a discount of over $2,000 towards the cost to purchase.”

As usual, Person was rather forthright and straight to the point.

That’s “The House Person” for you.

Alabama-based minister/businesswoman ‘Nia’ advancing the kingdom mightily courtesy of her thriving ministry

Just recently, accomplished Alabama-based minister/businesswoman Nia was asked to share in great detail her present endeavors.

And just like that, a life-enhancing, emotional testimony unfolded for all the right reasons. 

“I am a planter in the kingdom vineyard,” Nia, 43, told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview.

BOLD GOD-ORDAINED DECLARATION — For what it’s worth and because of the immeasurable, God-orchestrated calling on her life, Nia can dauntlessly profess that she’s one who is qualified to function in the endeavors to which God has strategically assigned her.

A disabled United States Navy veteran and a retired Department of Labor Counselor, Nia is actively involved in a variety of kingdom-based endeavors, most notably an E-Magazine and a Radio Talk Show, both of which are powered by  her forthcoming publication, “Untold Chronicles.” In addition, she has authored several books, as well as conducts regular seminars, and hosts a prayer line.

Having admittedly birthed these of endeavors out of what she describes as “the hurt, the shame, the disappointment, the ridicule, the defamation of character, the back stabbing, the neglect for my soul and the souls of others,” Nia doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s steadfastly walking in the purpose for which God created her.

“This is now my purpose in life that initially was not seen through my natural eyes, but after an encounter with God, it was revealed to me that my testimony was to be someone else’s salvation,” Nia explained while referencing the familiar passage that is Romans 8:30. “But I first had to be tried, tested and fit for the Master’s use. To whom He calls, He qualifies.”

For what it’s worth and because of the immeasurable, God-orchestrated calling on her life, Nia can dauntlessly profess that she’s one who is surely qualified to function in the endeavors to which God has strategically assigned her.

“First, I love the interactions with meeting people in all walks of life and being able to tell them about my personal experiences and how I found Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. And, how after seeing Him through the eyes of others (leaders, mature Saints, and those that accepted Jesus in their lives before me), and finally realizing that I myself had not being taught or shown how to know — having an intimate relationship— Him for myself,” Nia said.

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — A disabled United States Navy veteran and a retired Department of Labor Counselor, Nia is actively involved in a variety of kingdom-based endeavors, most notably an E-Magazine and a Radio Talk Show. In addition, she has authored several books, conducts regular seminars, and hosts a prayer line.

As for the spiritual and competitive drive that have greatly fueled her desire to diligently advance the kingdom for such a time as now, Nia  appropriately alluded to what she deems her “bulldog tenacity,” the kind of passion that is synonymous to that of David.

“Though I was small like David in stature and size, I had to have a ferocious nature,” Nia said. Due to being what my family and society deemed as being not the norm, I had to figure out how to navigate through life on my own. My environment gave me no choice other than to be a natural fighter and, when I turned to the church, where I was supposed to have solace and refuge in order to not have to fight alone, it was quickly revealed that the difference between what I was accustomed to in the world and what I was now — being subjected to in the church — was the words, because the actions were exactly the same.”

A proud 1992 graduate of Jess Lanier High School in Bessemer, Alabama, Nia sold out completely to God when she dedicated her life to Christ in April 1994, during which she served in the United States Navy and was based in Honolulu.

“See, I was born into an environment where I was predisposed for failure, teen pregnancy by multiple fathers and an impoverished lifestyle,” Nia recalled. “Over the course of 23 years, the experiences and encounters that I was faced with set the stage for me to be able to take an honest look at myself first, and then be willing to be transparent about my own interactions.”

Upon finishing high school, Nia advanced her education, first by earning an Associate of Arts Degree in General Studies, then a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Science from Tulane University in 2009. Consequently, she earned a Master’s Degree in Christian Counseling from Trinity Theological Seminary in 2013.

As for what has shaped up to be a flourishing ministry, it was due in large part to Nia’s array of transparency that this big-hearted, beloved, spiritually aggressive and devout woman of faith had ultimately possessed the courage to outlast the enemy with God, her Helper, leading the way.

KEEPING IT 100  — It was, by all accounts, due in large part to her array of transparency that this big-hearted, beloved, spiritually aggressive and devout woman of faith had ultimately possessed the courage to outlast the enemy with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“Those events paved the way for me to have the courage to expose the enemy concerning the interactions of those that were supposed to lead me through this journey,” Nia said.

Armed with an assortment of immense spiritual gifts that, to her credit, have afforded her the golden opportunity to minister in such establishments as Mississippi, Alabama, Philadelphia, Missouri, Florida, Illinois, Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, and the nation’s capital, it’s safe to assume that Nia’s well-publicized ministry has been embraced by many throughout the Body of Christ.

Yep, that’s just like God.

“The word of God is for everyone that will accept Him,” said Nia, alluding to Luke 14:23. “but my assignment to the Body of Christ — because everyone has been given a particular assignment, gift and calling — is to the Millennials. Those in this era that are misunderstood, downtrodden, talked about, given up on, ridiculed, hated and shown extreme amounts of prejudices need a voice to speak to them and for them.”

To grasp a thorough concept of this rather fervent, bold approach by which Nia customarily takes, look no further than what she labels her “niche by God’s design.”

“(It) has been to those already in a relationship with Him, but have suffered at the hands of those that lead them,” said Nia, explaining in detail her mission for her latest endeavors. “This epidemic continues to plague the Body of Christ in a way that casts a dark and derogatory image over us.”

Wait…because she has more to add to such an intriguing, thought-provoking notion.

Armed with an assortment of immense spiritual gifts that, to her credit, have afforded her the golden opportunity to minister in such places as Mississippi, Alabama, Philadelphia, Missouri, Florida, Illinois, Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, and the nation’s capital, it’s safe to assume that Nia’s well-publicized ministry has been embraced by many throughout the Body of Christ.

“See, we all have played a role at some point in this infection diseased community,” said Nia, referencing Isaiah 65:8. “The hurter — the one who did the hurting — the on-looker of the hurt that is being done — the one watching the hurt being done to someone — and the hurtee — the one that has been hurt — but is yet giving out the hurt that they themselves once experienced.”

All of which essentially sums up why that Nia is a planter in the kingdom vineyard makes all of the sense in the world, all of which practically explains why her unique, awe-inspiring presence in the modern-day church is so prevalent for a time such as now.

Talk about having a massive and influential kingdom impact.

“Throughout this journey, I have experienced a high-level of spiritual warfare with a great level of non-comprehension…just extreme amounts of hurt,” said Nia, who has been serving in her ministry for over five years but have been rooted and grounded in the Body of Christ for a nearly a decade and a half. “These experiences have allowed me to grow into the person I currently am and, the entire reason that I do what I do for the Body of Christ, I never want to see anyone endure what was thrust upon me.”

Interestingly, Nia emphasized, it all goes back to what she describes as her level of admiration, love, and compassion for people, just as God commands us through His word.

“(My love and compassion for people) continues to overwhelm me,” Nia said. “So much so that I will give all I have and all of my time to forever serve them and bring them into a level of understanding of where they are and what God has called them to do as well.

“This brings to mind several specific instances that occurred that may shed a little light on my tenacity,” continued Nia, while offering thorough breakdown, one that goes something like this:

 

NIA: IN HER OWN WORDS

(As told to Making Headline News)

2003 – I had been serving at this ministry for over five years and had experienced nothing but continual death to my spirit. I was talked about from the pulpit, I was embarrassed on more than one occasion, my character was on trial, my marriage place in jeopardy, finances constantly lacking because of giving and no reaping and no glimmer of hope at the forefront of my life. Needless to say, this was all at the hands of my SPIRITUAL LEADERS!

2005-2009 – In a very odd place in my life confused, broken, battered by the words that had been spoken spiritually and naturally, plagued by condemnation of my own self-inflicted wounds and destroyed by constant open scars and reminders of those that were supposed to comfort me in these stages of my life. Instead my name was spoken from lip to lip, church to church, city to city where they knew me. What should have been silent, and an indiscretion shared amongst leaders and myself was handed out like a free chicken dinner after church on Sunday afternoon.

2016 – Everything was great, OR SO I THOUGHT. I had finally overcome many obstacles through the blood of the lamb and the words of my testimony, I told GOD yes to whatever he wanted from me and I was moving forward to my next phase in him. Starting preparing to launch my ministry in 2015 and was aware that we would officially be New Era Ministries (where the millennials dwell) in January 2016. I had all things in order and family and I were ready to go. Don’t you know the enemy has to throw in a monkey wrench or he would not be himself. A couple of supposed to be pastors from a big city, Mega Ministry and high ranking platforms….or so they said. New to an area, had the same vision, and decided to move forward together. Of course you know this ended badly and the events that transpired took me completely out the game, vowing NEVER to preach again. The events above not only affected me greatly but also my family who more so than I vowed to NEVER put their trust in “church folks” again.

Memphis-area businessman Tony Jackson enjoying sustained success on Mid-South-area entrepreneurship landscape.

MEMPHIS — For a young businessman, Tony Jackson has quickly made a monumental impact on the Mid-South-area entrepreneurship landscape.

Mid-South-area Businessman Tony Jackson

Credit his immeasurable, thinking-outside-the-box temperament as the No. 1 reason why.

A native of Memphis, Jackson’s business-related track record is such that he’s been nothing short of brilliant, most notably as a managing member for Mobile2UTech, which is powered by Arlington Computers, LLC.

“We have just changed the name to Mobile2UTech to ensure customers that we service all of the Mid-South and not just Arlington,” Jackson told Making Headline News during an interview this week.

Mobile2UTech has two drop-off locations in the Memphis-metropolitan area: 12029 Mott Street in Arlington and 4717 Poplar Avenue at Cartridge World. 

TEN-NES-SEE HIS MAJOR MOVES — A native of Memphis, Tony Jackson’s business-related track record is such that he’s been nothing short of brilliant, most notably as managing member for Mobile2UTech, which is powered by Arlington Computers, LLC.

A business that went into operations in 2005, Mobile2UTech is widely known for operating in the ever-so-competitive computer and software stores industry, particularly within the equipment store sector.

For Jackson, 34, a 2002 graduate of Raleigh Egypt High, he brings a wealth of experience to Mobile2UTech, in large part because of his solid entrepreneurship background.

A business that went into operations in 2005, Mobile2UTech is widely known for operating in the ever-so-competitive computer and software stores industry, particularly within the home furniture, furnishings, and equipment stores sector.

During the infancy stages of his career, for instance, Jackson acquired what he labels his “initial bug for entrepreneurship” from longtime Mid-South-area restaurant owner David Sharek, for whom Jackson once worked.

“He taught me leadership and customer service,” Jackson said of his notable connection with Sharek. “David also helped me make gains at an early age in the stock market.”

So much, in fact, that the restaurant owner aided Jackson mightily in that this young businessman had ultimately found himself on the good right end of Google stock at approximately $250 per share, he recalled.

“Once I saw earnings roll in, I needed the ability to invest by volume,” Jackson said. “And the quickest way to earn dollars was business ownership.”

For what it’s worth, one favorable connection for Jackson had eventually given way to another.

And another one.

And another one.

And…well, you get the point.

MUCH NEEDED TIP-IN — During the infancy stages of his career, Jackson acquired what he labels his “initial bug for entrepreneurship” from longtime Mid-South-area restaurant owner David Sharek, whom Jackson once worked for.

“Now, as far as computers in general, I attribute those dealings to Janet Blue, who was at Tennessee College of Applied Technology Memphis (or TCAT). Kevin Woods told me the importance of buckling down and getting certified. The original owner was Mike McDonald. Shay Berthelson was the guy who introduced me to Mike,” Jackson explained.

Such pivotal connections had ultimately given way to Jackson being offered ownership approximately one year since becoming affiliated with Arlington-based  business, a development that eventually led to yet another golden opportunity when Jackson bought out McDonald’s interest at 100 percent in 2013, thus becoming the sole owner.

AWWWWWW — Aside from his remarkable connections, Jackson credits a majority of his success to Monica Jackson, his wife of 11 years. The couple has two children: their son, Brennan, and daughter, Bailey.

“My personal mission is just to be valued,” Jackson said of his sustained entrepreneurship success. “I love the feeling of helping someone in their time of need.”

Because after all, reaching back and helping others isn’t just the moral thing to do. More than anything, it’s priceless, Jackson hinted.

“I say often that success to me is not money,” Jackson said. “Success to me is to be valued by everyone I come in contact with. Therefore I am successful.”

After graduating from Raleigh Egypt, Jackson advanced his education at nearby Tennessee College Of Applied Technology, a development that, much to his delight, led to him being thrust amongst Emerging Leaders of Memphis, during which he received Comp Tia Certifications from New Horizons.

Aside from his remarkable connections, he credits a majority of his success to Monica Jackson, his wife of 11 years. The couple has two children: their son, Brennan, and daughter, Bailey.

Interestingly, Jackson has become an ambassador throughout the Mid-South business-related landscape.

He has shared of his success during a host of entrepreneurship summits and classes, most notably Rise Foundation at National College of Business and Technology, Southwest Tennessee Community College, and SEED CO Entrepreneurship, among others.

In addition, his valiant contributions to aspiring entrepreneurs have given way to wave of media attention for Jackson whom, given the strides he’s made in recent years, it’s safe to assume that he’s just starting to warm up on this, the Mid-South-area entrepreneurship landscape.

“I think it’s imperative that I inspire others, because I feel that everyone deserves their shot at greatness,” Jackson said. “You will achieve whatever you say you will. You just have to keep at it. I also feel that we are called by God to be a light to everyone. And just maybe someone will see Christ through me by my actions, and seek Him for all their answers in life.”

Spoken like a thriving, progressive, humble young businessman, one who has quickly made a monumental impact on the Mid-South-area entrepreneurship landscape.

Credit his immeasurable, thinking-outside-the-box temperament as the No. 1 reason why.
