Virginia entrepreneur Tortica Anderson’s business vision comes full circle amid darkest season of her life


Then the LORD answered me and said, “Record the vision And inscribe it on tablets, That the one who reads it may run. (Habakkuk 2:2 NASB)


GOD’S VISIONARY 

RAY OF SUNSHINE — Widely known as a woman who’s armed with an immeasurable, progressive vision, Tortica Anderson is the proud founder and CEO of A Family Affair Event Management LLC, an awe-inspiring endeavor that has given way to her having possessed more than 18 years in her chosen profession.

In case you don’t know her, Tortica Anderson would like to introduce herself.

Widely known as a woman who’s armed with an immeasurable, progressive vision, Anderson is the proud founder and CEO of A Family Affair Event Management LLC, an awe-inspiring endeavor that has given way to her having possessed more than 18 years in her chosen profession.
A native of Triangle, Virginia — a small town near Quantico Marine Base — Anderson’s A Family Affair Event Management offers a vast array of services, most notably event planning and production, team building and event management.
Also known as a community outreach advocate, co-author, an aspiring motivational speaker, and philanthropist, Anderson has established a rather impressive track record in her featured profession, one that includes putting on bridal and fashion shows, fundraisers, conferences, galas, trade shows, networking events, as well as corporate and community outreach events — most notably, Warner Theatre, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt Place, Hilton Mark Center, Morias Vineyard, Rosemont Manor, Greenock Manor, Effingham Manor Winery, and The Richmond Amtrak  Station.

For Anderson, who currently resides in Stafford, Virginia, her rise to entrepreneurship success emerged amid humble beginnings.

“I lost my father in 1999,” Anderson told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “After his health had declined over the years, at that time, I thought that was the worst thing I had ever experienced. Little did I know, (I had no idea) what I was in store for (for me).”

Fast forward to 2005, Anderson had given birth to her daughter, Amiyah Shakyra.

During her pregnancy, in fact, Anderson had endured her share of difficulties, including complications from diabetes, all while savoring what she described as a thriving career while closing in on the age of 40.

A little more than a decade removed from its inception, it is due in large to Anderson’s wealth of experience in her selected line of work that, in turn, has fueled her desire to press and navigate toward her destiny — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

“I carried my angel full term, but unfortunately, she was born stillborn,” said Anderson, recalling what unfolded on November 8, 2005. “My life, as I knew it changed that day.”

A year or so later, Anderson had given birth to another daughter, T’kiyah Serenity, whom she describes as a “smart, witty and compassionate little girl.”

“She is the calm to my storm and my renewed faith,” Anderson said her youngest daughter’s presence.

Anderson is the mother of, T’kiyah, 12, Reynaldo, 29, and the late Amiyah, all of whom she describes as “my biggest fans, considering they motivate me to continue to pursue my passion & happiness.”

Speaking of renewed faith, Anderson’s rise to becoming a successful businesswoman was essentially discovered some 18 years ago when a family friend offered her the opportunity to plan her “all-inclusive” wedding.


WALKING IN HER DESTINY 

“The wedding was a success and exceeded their expectations,” Anderson recalled. “Within no time, what started as a hobby shortly became her vision.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Much to her credit, Anderson’s A Family Affair Event Management has evolved mightily in recent years and, to the delight of her clients, it has become a continuous success.

Interestingly, since Anderson’s business has gone into full operations, this Virginia-born entrepreneur has been afforded the luxury of serving as a lead coordinator for weddings, holiday parties, and a number of special events, especially when she wasn’t working her Corporate America gig.

LEAST SHE FORGET — Speaking of renewed faith, Anderson’s rise to becoming a successful businesswoman was essentially discovered some 18 years ago when a family friend offered her the opportunity to plan her “all-inclusive” wedding.

In fact, it seemed that Anderson’s unexpected layoff from her job had ultimately become a blessing in disguise.

“I had grief from losing my dad and other close family members…the lost of Amiyah, a failed marriage due to grief, lack of communication and  the lay off in 2010 during which at the time, my mother’s health declined and I became her primary care giver just months before the layoff,” Anderson said. “The layoff caused a financial burden, but I had to heal and rebuild. My mother was my priority and I still care for her today. Unwanted advances by two different clients promising award-winning opportunities made me revert into a shell, questioning myself and my abilities.”
But God…

“What seemed like bad timing was inevitably God’s timing as it had afforded me the opportunity to focus on cultivating AFA,” Anderson says with a victorious smile.


A little more than a decade removed from its inception, it is due in large to Anderson’s wealth of experience in her selected line of work that, in turn, has fueled her desire to press and navigate toward her destiny — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Also known as a community outreach advocate, co-author, an aspiring motivational speaker, and philanthropist, Anderson has established a rather impressive track record in her featured profession, one that includes putting on bridal and fashion shows, fundraisers, conferences, galas, trade shows, networking events, as well as corporate and community outreach events.

“I formed A Family Affair Event Management LLC later that year, but getting into the industry was a struggle for me, but I was committed to being successful and happy,” Anderson said.

More than anything, achieving a sense of happiness, coupled with a renewed sense of faith was absolutely essential, particularly during Anderson’s fervent quest to garner entrepreneurship success.

Thank God she doesn’t mere look like what she’s been through.


“Before my father died in 1999, my brother, dad, and myself had plans to open a towing business. His health deteriorated quickly and he passed in August. My brother and I have an unbreakable bond, and the love for our father, so even though we were grieving, we were determined to continue our father’s legacy and opened the business in December of that year, as well as I had a commercial office cleaning business. Our bloodline is strong and our father taught us respect, loyalty to our family, diligence, morals, values, perseverance and honor. Entrepreneurship didn’t really start with the event planning. It was years before in 1998.” — Entrepreneur Tortica Anderson 


“I was rebuilding, learning, healing and contemplating my next move to build my empire and a legacy for my children,” Anderson said. “I was committed to proving that I deserved a place in the industry.”

“When I look back on all of my responsibilities — physically and financially — I don’t know how I’ve made it this far,” Anderson continued. “I know God has a purpose for me. My journey hasn’t been the easiest, but my faith and trust in God brought me through it. Finding balance within my responsibilities was a challenge…no time for myself, self care was minimal, mind was cluttered and as I continued to pray for strength and clarity, God brought be out of the clouds and into the light.
“Having an authentic heart can be mistaken for a weakness, so you always have to work twice as hard to prove yourself among your peers, colleagues and in the industry. I finally value myself and demand others to do so as well, but it took years to honestly feel this way. I am still learning, but I have accepted the challenge. There is a standard by which AFA operates, which took years to develop.”

 

So far, so good for Anderson, one of the event planning industry’s best kept secrets.

More than anything, achieving a sense of happiness, coupled with a renewed sense of faith was absolutely essential, particularly during Anderson’s fervent quest to garner entrepreneurship success.

Florida gospel recording phenom ‘4G’ making remarkable strides as the face of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC


Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. (Psalm 96:1 NIV)


4-GOD BE THE GLORY

GLOBAL IMPACT — Widely known amongst his peers as “4G,” Jimmy Gathers, 44, is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Above far as the above Biblical passage goes, Jimmy Orlando Gathers, Jr. spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, he raps, too.
“Aside from being in the music industry, on a personal level, it’s more about my family’s legacy,” Gathers, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining the awe-inspiring events that have greatly afforded him the golden opportunity to function in his element. “Let me elaborate.”
Alright, then.
Have at it.
“Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”
Given the immeasurable strides Gathers have made in recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.

Widely known amongst his peers as “Jay Gathers” — which is accompanied by the nickname, “4G” — Gathers is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

Credit the fact that he’s steadfastly on fire for God as arguably the grandest reasons why.

Because, after all, even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.


“(I love) providing great music, great entertainment, and giving people the message of the gospel,” said 4G, a native of Apalachicola, Florida. “More importantly, it blesses me to see people’s lives changed, because they can relate to the transparency in my music.”


A 1993 graduate of Panama City’s Bay High School, 4G earned his undergraduate degree from Florida State University. Prior to that, he was enrolled at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, where he earned General Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degrees in Fire Science, which ultimately gave way to his becoming a certified fire fighter.

GOD’S PLAN…GOD’S PLAN — Even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.

While 4G is fully aware that knowledge is power, music has always been his primary passion.

In fact, 4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created.

How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with two-time Stellar award winner Canton Jones,” said 4G, calling off names of gospel celebs as if he’s handing out diplomas. “He’s actually featured on four projects off my newly released album entitled, ‘Unqualified.’ “I also have collaborations with Mr. Del (previously of Three Six Mafia) and Born Divine of the Wu Tang Family.”

Wait. There’s more.

“I also have projects produced by well- known producers who’ve produced for other mainstream artists such as Supa Cool — Kevin Gates, Gucci Mane, Shaquille O’Neal — and Lady Trauma (Missy Elliot),” 4G said.

IN HIS OWN WORDS — “Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”

“I’ve appeared twice on Bobby Jones Presents in Nashville, appeared on America’s Got Anointing (The Word Network) in Atlanta, performed the last two years at showcases in Las Vegas during the Stellar Awards, was an opening act for Le’Andria Johnson in Charlotte, appeared on the front cover of Soul Central Magazine (March, 2019 Edition), the front cover of Gospel USA Magazine (October, 2019 Edition), won the 2019 Holy Hip-Hop artist of the Year award in North Carolina.”

Hold up. He’s still not finished disclosing of his laundry list of accolades.

4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created. How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

“I’ve been nominated for numerous other (awards) to include as the V.O.G.M.A., Steeple Awards, and Soul Central Awards,” said 4G, who has been the beneficiary of ongoing media coverage and exposure.

As for the upcoming New Year, 4G is overwhelmingly enthused, in large part because greater is on the way, he said.

“(The year) 2020 is looking very promising as I’m planning more musical events at major churches in bigger markets, radio interviews, recording more visuals and music videos, recording and releasing more new music, etc.,” 4G said.


HOLDIN’ IT DOWN 

For what it’s worth, 4G emphasized, among other things, that his primary objective is to glorify God through his musical gifts, all the while leaving a last impression as a result.

“As stated in Proverbs 13:22, a good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous,” 4G said. “When my father died years ago, he didn’t leave anything behind financially that I — as his son — could be proud of. That feeling that I felt during that time in my life is one I never want my sons and daughters to feel. That is what propels me daily in my business venture.”

Eloquently stated by a giftedly talented child of God, whose spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, raps, too.

Given the immeasurable strides 4G have made in his recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.

South Carolina Pastor Angela L. Mczeke walking exquisitely in her purpose as a successful author, businesswoman


For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)


PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Widely known as a Pastor, Innovative Coach, Empowerment Speaker, Stylist, Educator, and Inventor, Angela L. Mczeke has also found her niche as an accomplished author of five books to date.

In case you don’t know her, Pastor Angela L. Mczeke would like to introduce herself.

A native of Tabor City, North Carolina — one of the state’s largest counties that is just north of the North Carolina/South Carolina state line with a population of roughly 3,979, according to the latest U. S. census — Mczeke currently resides in Green Sea, South Carolina, which is in close proximity of the historic Myrtle Beach.
Widely known as a Pastor, Innovative Coach, Empowerment Speaker, Stylist, Educator, and Inventor, Mczeke has also found her niche as an accomplished author of five books to date.
Mczeke’s featured written work undoubtedly is entitled, “No Longer Silent,” a project that has fueled her fervent desire to host what is known as her annual “No Longer Silent Conference.”
“(I’ve hosted) a conference every year since 2017,” Mczeke told Making Headline News this week. “Women have come forward with their stories, (sharing how they’ve) become healed and moving on in life despite the heartache and pain (they’ve endured). I have preached and had others to join as well.

FOR STARTERS — Mczeke’s featured written work undoubtedly is entitled, “No Longer Silent,” a project that has fueled her fervent desire to host what is known as her annual “No Longer Silent Conference.”

“I have preached (at other) conferences only to tell my story and lives have been changed through my courage to speak out.”

A devout woman of faith whose kingdom-based resume is amongst the most-respected throughout the Body of Christ, Mczeke also is the mastermind behind four other spiritually-empowering books: “Search Yourself,” “Anthology: 12 Laws To Women In Business,” “Purified Purpose To Success,” and “12 Keys To Success.”

“They are (tremendous reads) to have… mostly for women,” Mczeke said of her other written works. “Despite the obstacles, (my books are pivotal reminders) that you can become an overcomer.”

Interestingly, once Mczeke had become acclimated to the ever-so-competitive authorship, it wasn’t until after her sophomore project that she had begun to enhance her business-related mechanics, particularly as an empowerment coach.

“After my second book, I became a life coach and I am an inventor,” said Mczeke, referring to the eventual startup of what is known as “The Innovative Coaching Business.”

STARTING LINEUP — A devout woman of faith whose kingdom-based resume is amongst the most-respected throughout the Body of Christ, Mczeke also is the mastermind behind four other spiritually-empowering books: “Search Yourself,” “Anthology: 12 Laws To Women In Business,” “Purified Purpose To Success,” and “12 Keys To Success.”

Through this notable endeavor, Mczeke is routinely afforded the opportunity of creating ideas for herself, as well as for her clients and mentees as a strategic way of enabling them to advance in the life God has for them, she said.

Widely regarded as a trail blazer, in large part because of her unorthodox creativity — “which God has poured into me,” she acknowledged — Mczeke is the chief executive officer of Exclusive Design Hair Studio, Exclusive Chic Fashions On Line Boutique, Exclusive Wig Collection, and she is the face of Angela’s Innovative Hair Academy.

To her credit, Mczeke has made considerable strides in what is known as the Innovative Certified Coaching industry, in large part because of the sustained success of her online program called, “Embracing Your Originality.”

A well-respected and beloved woman of God, Mczeke is the Founder of Kingdom Harvest Outreach Ministries.

Her kingdom-based track record is such that she is widely regarded for steadfastly standing in truth, firmly on the word of God, realizing — among other things — she can’t do anything without Him.

“He created me in His image and likeness,” Mczeke said of her sustained success in the kingdom and the marketplace.

All things considered, Mczeke emphasized she customarily uses a journey she refers to as “from victim to victorious” to greatly empower other women, most notably through her coaching, mentoring programs, and conferences.


“I never knew I would be a writer, author, mentor, and life coach until I lost my house around 2016, and me and my husband while Pastoring for about three years, we moved in with my mom and I begin journaling,” said Mczeke, recalling vividly the humble beginnings that essentially spearheaded her quest to persevere toward the purpose for which God created her. “And I was told to write a book.”


As it turned it, Mczeke hasn’t shown any signs that she plans to shelve the pen and pad anytime soon.

How else to explain why she has successfully orchestrated five books in such a brief time frame?

“(People told me), ‘I see you writing,’” Mczeke said. “I never knew I would be an author of five books. These books have totally helped me walk completely into my purpose.”

Without question, it is a foregone conclusion Who gets the credit.

“I can honestly say I give God the glory,” Mczeke said without hesitation. “I only want Him to be glorified. I knew it was major that I walk into my purpose…to empower, motivate, and inspire others through my experiences.”

For Mczeke, she subsequently had to endure her share of ashes before God had ultimately catapulted her to a much-anticipated harvest season, one that’s blanketed by pure beauty — both in the natural and the spirit.

“After 17 years of being a successful hairstylist and salon owner, I was forced by God to shut it down,” Mczeke said. “Yes, I became depressed, because that’s all I thought I knew, but God had so much more in me. So He bought me out of my comfort zone to place me in a very uncomfortable place I hadn’t been before.”

Little did Mczeke know, even when she sensed she was down to nothing, God — His usual reliable Self — was up to something.

“Now I am depressed, because I didn’t understand what was going on only to find out I was in transition to something greater than me…my career,” Mczeke said. “Now I am traveling all over the world to not (just) saving hair, but lives as well.”

In case you don’t know Pastor Angela L. Mczeke, now you do.

All things considered, Mczeke emphasized she customarily uses a journey she refers to as “from victim to victorious” to empower other women, most notably through her coaching, mentoring programs, and conferences.

Baltimore author Evangelist Nodella Jordan exemplifies godly act of obedience, assembles two books and counting


Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 NIV)


WRITING THE GOSPEL 

GOD’S PLAN — A native of the Bronx, New York, Evangelist Nodella Jordan is the mastermind behind two remarkably compelling books: “The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself” and “Sassy: The Perfect Life.”

 

Nearly six years ago is when it all began to unfold.

Evangelist Nodella Jordan was amongst a gallery of attendees at a worship service.
That is when the Holy Spirit began to speak to her unlike never before.
“It was prophesied to me to write two books,” Jordan, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that contributed mightily to her becoming a Christian-based author. “I figured it would be something I did once I retired.”
As Jordan had ultimately discovered, though, God had other plans which, to her surprise, had called for her to retire much sooner than she envisioned.

A book that is a little more than four years removed from its much-anticipated release, Jordan’s “The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself” is highlighted by “Intimate” being broken down immensely, a word this author said could either ignite discomfort and/or confusion among people, according to a detailed introduction of Jordan’s book at Amazon.com.

“Well, little did I know, God had me to retire in August 2014 at the age of 46 and relocated and shifted me to Baltimore,” Jordan explained. “This was a very long journey, because I didn’t want to move from Connecticut  being that it was where I grew up, attended school, my family and friends were there, as well as I was well-known, too. However, after a year of fighting with God, I finally heeded His wish and shifted.”

And, because of her steadfast act of obedience, God has rewarded her mightily, not just through ministry, but as an accomplished writer.

A native of the Bronx, New York, Jordan is the mastermind behind two remarkably compelling books: “The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself” and “Sassy: The Perfect Life.”

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — All things considered, Jordan doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s overwhelmingly grateful that God is steadily using her to help advance the kingdom — even through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

A book that is a little more than four years removed from its much-anticipated release, Jordan’s “The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself” is highlighted by “Intimate” being broken down immensely, a word this author said could either ignite discomfort and/or confusion among people, according to a detailed introduction of Jordan’s book at Amazon.com.

Interestingly and to her credit, Jordan goes as far as to enlighten her readers on intimacy, particularly as it relates to what she refers to as relationship capacity.

“For Christians, explaining to others about spiritual intimacy with the Heavenly Father can be even more difficult, considering it’s intimacy with someone that can’t be touched or seen,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Jordan’s ‘The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself’ which was released officially on June 30, 2015. “Yet becoming personal with God in a relationship allows intimacy to not only be felt between God and you, but it also improves soul ties you share with others and yourself.”

A Christian fictional narrative, Jordan’s “Sassy: The Perfect Life” depicts the life of Sassy, whom this author describes as a “strong-willed and persistent” young woman, one whom dreamt of having the perfect life complete with a fulfilling career and a loving family, according to synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

And then there is “Sassy: The Perfect Life,” Jordan’s latest book that made its ceremoniously release on the market on November 28, 2018.

A Christian fictional narrative, Jordan’s “Sassy: The Perfect Life” depicts the life of Sassy, whom this author describes as a “strong-willed and persistent” young woman, one whom dreamt of having the perfect life complete with a fulfilling career and a loving family, according to synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

Along her path, she must overcome many obstacles to get to her perfect life, Jordan writes in her latest published work.

Jordan, in fact, acknowledges that Sassy was still determined to build a strong foundation for herself, one that would be comprised of her having achieved her childhood dream in the process.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “Well, little did I know, God had me to retire in August 2014 at the age of 46 and relocated and shifted me to Baltimore,” Jordan explained. “This was a very long journey, because I didn’t want to move from Connecticut  being that it was where I grew up, attended school, my family and friends were there, as well as I was well-known, too. However, after a year of fighting with God, I finally heeded His wish and shifted.”

“Sassy was a resilient, independent woman with the motivation and perseverance to achieve her dreams of becoming a great defense attorney,” said a spokesperson for Jordan’s “Sassy: The Perfect Life.’ “Her intelligence and strong work ethic gave her the ability to succeed in school, even at the competitive Villanova University Law School.”

To her credit, Jordan announced that Part 2 of her latest book is effectively underway. Not to be outdone, she said many have inquired about a second edition of “The Intimate Place,” although she “haven’t gotten to it yet,” she told MHN.


“I just don’t want to put out anything for the sake of doing it, but there must be a need and purpose for it,” Jordan said. “I do have a list of approximately eight or more books that I would like to write, but I am led by Holy Spirit what to write about. I don’t write to become wealthy or famous.”


However, rest assured that Jordan, a founder and CEO of NSJ Ministries, does, in fact, write as a strategic way to help advance the kingdom.

“I was concerned with seeing church-goers struggle to be intimate with The God they said they had a relationship with, mostly during worship and church service,” Jordan said. “The least little thing would pull them out of that zone. When you are truly in a place of intimacy, you don’t allow anything or anyone to interfere with it.

“I further identify in my (second) book five types of intimacy that we overlook on a regular basis though they’re part of our daily lives,” Jordan continued. “I want us to be intentional, purposeful, and conscious about the times we are in a moment of intimacy — non-sexual that is — and not just take it as a non-meaningful encounter.”

REAPING A HARVEST 

To her credit, Jordan announced Part 2 of her latest book is effectively underway. Not to be outdone, she said many have inquired about a second edition of “The Intimate Place,” although she “haven’t gotten to it yet,” she told MHN.

All things considered, Jordan doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s overwhelmingly grateful that God is steadily using her to help advance the kingdom — even through this ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

“Not everyone has the gift to write quality books, though there are thousands of books published a week or maybe even per day,” Jordan said. “My books are not limited to only spiritual and Christian-type books. Yes, I’m a minister, but when the word was prophesied to me to write two books, it was not given with specifics that they had to be Christian genre.”

Talk about having a massive and influential kingdom impact.

Atlanta author Qshebra Taylor defies toughest of odds, assembles a book that figures to have global impact


I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


UNSHAKABLE FAITH 

WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED — A native of Memphis who currently resides in Atlanta, Qshebra L. Taylor is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.: The Molding Matrimony of Healing, Expectations, Realizations.”

For Qshebra Latash Taylor, her God-assigned vision for composing her latest book was revealed some five years ago.

Much to her delight, such an adventure consequently had come full circle a year or so ago.
“The vision was given about five years ago, yet the clarification, hope, and strategies for writing the book were revealed about one year ago,” Taylor told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I believe I was created to encourage, inspire, and empower individuals in ministry, personal life, and business.”
Fortunately for Taylor, an empowerment extraordinaire in her own right, she’s been greatly afforded the golden opportunity to have an influential impact on the lives of countless of individuals, most notably through her immeasurable gifts as an accomplished author.

A MUST READ — Interestingly, it wasn’t until after Taylor had rediscovered her God-given worth that she sensed full well that she had to move forward with “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.”

A book Taylor began assembling in January 2018 before the tragic death of her son — who was murdered in May 2018 — resulted in a temporary standstill with this project, “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.” was finally completed just last month.

The founder and CEO of BAMM EmpowerEment Ministries and All Visions Enterprise LLC, Taylor’s “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.” will be available to pre-sale order August 15.

The nationwide release for this book will take place on October 13.

Having produced seven written works dating back to 2015 with a few more on the horizon, Taylor is especially appreciative of the notion that she has finally gotten her latest published document completed, considering it comes amid arguably the darkest season of her life — a sometimes disastrous, stormy season whereby she has been equipped and molded to be used by God to help advance His kingdom unlike never before.


“As a vision coach and strategist, my heart’s desire is to help others to see insight beyond life’s ups and down,” said Taylor, providing a detailed synopsis of why she chose to write her latest book. “My greatest inspiration was after a conversation I remember having with my son.”


For Taylor, it was a life-altering dialogue by which she will recall for the rest of her life.

“He said he couldn’t see past the darkness — past decisions, choices, etc.,” Taylor explained. “I knew what that felt like when I was growing up in Memphis and it flowed into my life as an adult. The darkness became my norm and I was so afraid to live, pursue, and expect greater. This behavior allowed me to settle my whole life — friendships, relationships, partnerships, and leadership — and I was scared to accept who God said I was and what I could have.”


PRE-SALE ORDER QSHEBRA’S BOOK NOW

Having acknowledged that her past, by all accounts, had become what she describes as her “prison,” there was, in fact, somewhat of a silver-lining in the midst of what was seemingly nothing more than organized confusion in the life of this devout woman of faith whom, to her credit, was determined not to take defeat lying down.

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, she had a few good reasons not to allow her faith to waver during a time it seemed on the brink of throwing in the towel.

But God…

“My past has become a molding platform to reintroduce who I was and who God called me to be,” Taylor said. “My past protected me as a survivor, but my future is calling forth me as a thriver.”

Interestingly, it wasn’t until after Taylor had rediscovered her God-given worth that she sensed full well she had to move forward with “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.”

“I started off writing about my healing to help others through their storms and later on turned into helping others see beyond their disappointments,” said Taylor, alluding to life-changing occurrences such as devastation, death, denial, and divorce or, as she specifically singles out, ‘two abusive husbands.’

“My grandma encouraged me to marry a man who I did not like just to say I am married and my children have a father,” Taylor continued. “And then I married again only to marry someone who was able to handle my right now, but not my future (he was “jealous and intimated of my ministry” she explained. “From the ministry of misery to the ministry of motivational matrimony.”

All things considered, Taylor would be the first to admit that she’s most grateful to Almighty God for complete restoration, for a new lease on life, if you will.

Fortunately for Taylor, an empowerment extradionaire in her own right, she’s been greatly afforded the golden opportunity to have an influential impact on the lives of countless of individuals, most notably through her immeasurable gifts as an accomplished author.

“I will no longer settle for anything or anyone less than what and who God has for me,” Taylor said without hesitation. “My son’s death has become the rebirth of who God has called me to be. God will use what you’ve gone through in the past and your right-now to build a wonderful masterpiece.

“All things work together,” added Taylor, now starting to sound alike seasoned evangelist. “When you know you are in God, it’s so easy to live according to God’s word so you can access God’s best.”

Having produced seven written works dating back to 2015 with a few more on the horizon, Taylor is especially appreciative of the notion that she had finally gotten her latest published document done, considering it comes amid arguably the darkest season of her life — a sometimes disastrous, stormy season whereby she has been equipped and molded to be used by God to help advance His kingdom unlike never before.

Despite all through which she has gone and survived, Taylor doesn’t shy away from the notion that she steadfastly heard God’s Voice loud and clear.

Therefore, she had no other choice but to react accordingly.

“(That is) returning back to my First Love. That’s God,” Taylor said without hesitation.

Once again.

Talk about exemplifying unshakable faith.

Dallas/Fort Worth Pastor Edward Taylor continuing Deliverance Chapel COGIC’s longstanding mission as its beloved leader


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)


CARRYING THE MANTLE 

DIFFERENT LEADER, SAME MISSION — A notable faith-based resume that is comprised of Edward Taylor being widely dubbed a well-respected preacher, teacher, evangelist, worshipper, father, and counselor, he has appropriately assumed his rightful place as the face of the historic Deliverance Chapel Church of God In Christ, located at 1438 Hortense Avenue.

DALLAS — For the record, it is a testimony that Edward Taylor deems it a foregone conclusion to share with the masses.

Every single chance he gets.

Just recently, Taylor found himself disclosing it once again, reliving the awe-inspiring notion that had it not been for the Lord on his side then, chances are, he wouldn’t merely know where he’d be.

Then again, he does have an idea, to put it rather bluntly.
“Had God not changed my life when He did, I would probably be dead or in jail,” Edwards, during an exclusive interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable, life-altering developments that led to his rise as an accomplished man of the cloth. “Also, I know if He changed my life, he can do it for someone else. So I take reaching the lost — evangelism — really serious.”
To grasp a thorough understanding of why Taylor would be considered a proverbial nuts and bolts — or a going by the book — type of minister, look no further than not just how God has provided for him a way of escape time and again.
Oh…and while you’re at it, look no further than how he’s diligently going about serving the people of God.
A notable faith-based resume that is comprised of Taylor being widely dubbed a well-respected preacher, teacher, evangelist, worshipper, father, and counselor, he has appropriately assumed his rightful place as the face of the historic Deliverance Chapel Church of God In Christ, located at 1438 Hortense Avenue.
Installed as an ordained elder approximately two years later by the late Bishop J. Neaul Haynes, the former Prelate of the Texas Northeast First Jurisdictional, Taylor consequently served closely under late Superintendent Kelley Jr., a stint that would ultimately give way to his official installation as Deliverance Chapel’s Pastor months after Kelley Jr.’s untimely demise, despite having founded Dallas’ El Shaddai Temple Church of God In Christ in August 2011.

A tradition-rich institution that’s housed in the historic Oak Cliff community of Dallas, Deliverance Chapel has embraced wholeheartedly the keen leadership of Taylor, 53, since the longtime minister was installed as its third Senior Pastor in 2017.

Having succeeded the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley Jr., who passed away on November 19, 2016 at the age of 54, Taylor has made immeasurable strides since assuming the Senior Pastoral duties and, much to his delight, his congregation has unquestionably and gracefully received him in the process.

Deliverance Chapel was founded in 1981 by the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley, Sr. and his wife, Elect Lady Geneva Kelley.

“Although (I was) raised in a single parent home, my mother always taught me to work hard and never let anyone tell me what I can’t do or attain,” said Taylor, recalling the No. 1 key value he was taught as a child.

SERVING WITH EXCELLENCE — To grasp a thorough understanding of why Taylor would be considered a proverbial nuts and bolts — or a going by the book — type of minister, look no further than not just how God has provided him a way of escape time and again, but look no further than how he has gone about serving the people of God.

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Taylor and his family relocated from the Magnolia to the Lone Star State in 2004, approximately nine years after he had effectively accepted his calling to preach the gospel.

Interestingly, even before God had strategically set Taylor aside for His use, this young preacher endured a tumultuous season in the wilderness, one that was mired by his constant drug addiction.

All things considered, coupled with divine purpose for which he was created, even a somewhat lengthy connection to drugs wasn’t enough to steer Taylor to a premature death, mind you.


LEAST WE FORGET 

REMEMBERING HIS PREDICESSORS  — Having succeeded the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley Jr., who passed away on November 19, 2016 at the age of 54, Taylor has made immeasurable strides since assuming Senior Pastor duties and, much to his delight, his congregation has unquestionably and gracefully received him in the process.

If nothing else, it seemed that such a downtrodden and gloomy season of his life only impressed upon the heart of his Creator to come after him the more. So much so that this young, gifted preacher from the “SIP” (a historic abbreviation for Mississippi) had no choice but to do away with his potentially dead-end addiction, thus pick up his cross and obey God’s specific commands that included, among other things, leading His people for such a time as now.

Because at the end of the real day, Taylor was taught, more than anything, that only what you do for Christ will last.

AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART

Armed with well over three decades of experience in the ministry, Taylor is especially appreciative of the valiant and unyielding support of Elect Lady Tangela Taylor, his wife of 15 years, who serves alongside him in ministry.

Here he is today, functioning mightily in his element as the chief executive officer of one of the most longstanding ministries in Dallas/Fort Worth which, to his credit, is a far cry from those days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed he had Taylor right where he wanted him.

But God…

SERVANT’S HEART — For what it’s worth, this national COGIC Adjutant has been serving ever since — serving with a pure and contrite heart, serving immense adherence and trustworthiness, serving according to God’s purpose.

“(My ) family is very supportive, especially my mother and adult children,” said Taylor, explaining his transition to Senior Pastor nearly two years ago.

Armed with well over three decades of experience in the ministry, Taylor is especially appreciative of the valiant and unyielding support of Elect Lady Tangela Taylor, his wife of 15 years, who serves alongside him in ministry.


 

“The Lord has blessed us to work together to accomplish great things in the ministry,” Taylor said of his companion’s unparalleled support. “Our greatest desire is to take the church to another level and build the people and let God grow the church. Deliverance Chapel is a united body, and is definitely a good church to go to heaven from.”

Credit Taylor’s predecessor as arguably the biggest reason why.

Taylor joined Deliverance Chapel in 2004 after serving a brief tenure under Pastor Joe Starks of Shady Gove Church of God In Christ in nearby Irving, Texas.

RIGHT WHERE GOD WANTS HIM — Here is Taylor today, functioning mightily in his element as the chief executive officer of one of the most longstanding ministries in Dallas/Fort Worth which, to his credit, is a far cry from the days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed that he had Taylor right where he wanted him. But God…

Installed as an ordained elder approximately two years later by the late Bishop J. Neaul Haynes, the former Prelate of the Texas Northeast First Jurisdictional, Taylor consequently served closely under Superintendent Kelley Jr.

Such a stint would ultimately give way to Taylor’s official installation as Deliverance Chapel’s Pastor months after Kelley Jr.’s untimely demise, despite having founded Dallas’ El Shaddai Temple Church of God In Christ in August 2011.

Deliverance Chapel was founded in 1981 by the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley, Sr. and his wife, Elect Lady Geneva Kelley.

Prior to assuming his Pastoral assignment in Texas, Taylor served at Amazing Institutional Church of God in Christ in Jackson, Mississippi, under the leadership of Superintendent Marcus Butler.

Currently, Taylor serves as Evangelist President to Bishop Nathaniel De’Anthony Wells, the Prelate of Texas Northeast Fourth Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction.

Asked when he sensed that God was strategically him for ministry, Taylor said without hesitation: “When I accepted my calling at age 30.”

A PROVEN LEADER — A tradition-rich institution that’s housed in the historic Oak Cliff community of Dallas, Deliverance Chapel has embraced wholeheartedly the keen leadership of Taylor, 53, since the longtime minister was installed as its third Senior Pastor in 2017.

For what it’s worth, though, this national COGIC Adjutant has been serving conscientiously ever since — serving with a pure and contrite heart, serving with immense adherence and trustworthiness, serving according to God’s purpose.

Most of all, he’s serving fervently from God’s perspective.

Which, because of the divine calling on his life, is a far cry from those days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed he had him right where he wanted him.

But God…

Texas gospel singer Bryan Ezell advancing the kingdom, following in the massive footsteps of his parents


O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. (Psalm 96:1 KJV)


DALLAS — Diana Sheffield Richards is a dear friend to Bryan Ezell.

On Tuesday morning, she deemed it essential to enlighten her social media followers of just how much she admires Ezell, a rising fixture in this ever-so-competitive gospel music industry.

“This is so cool! I can’t wait to see my friend, Bryan Ezell, sing at the Choice Competition. And it’s for a great cause!” Richards wrote in a Facebook post, alluding to Ezell’s forthcoming appearance at the Choice Singing Competition Friday night.

PREPARE YE THE WAY 

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — A native of a small, unincorporated community known as Tom, Oklahoma, Bryan Ezell, 41, has made his presence felt as an accomplished gospel recording artist, whose immeasurable talents are steadily advancing the kingdom mightily for such a pivotal time as now.

For Ezell, Richards’ public celebratory shout out is just a microcosm of the kind of unyielding support this gifted and talent Sherman, Texas-based singer has garnered in recent years.

A native of a small, unincorporated community known as Tom, Oklahoma, Ezell, 41, has made his presence felt as an accomplished gospel recording artist, whose immeasurable talents are steadily advancing the kingdom mightily for such a pivotal time as now.

“I have been singing all of my life, and the older I got, I started thinking more about how instead of singing to other people’s music, why not make my own songs and sing them how I want to,” Ezell told Making Headline News this week. “I had an ear for music and could pay attention to the minute details of sound quality. That challenged me to begin creating favorable sounds as it was revealed to me.”

RUNNING WITH THE VISION — A gospel music tenure that spans more than 15 years, Ezell has gone to great lengths to become more of a gospel artist who customarily wears many hats, considering he possesses the immeasurable smarts as an audio engineer and music producer.

Widely known as a PK — or a Preacher’s Kid, considering he’s the son of Pastor and Mrs. James Ezell (Annie) of Latter Rain Church of God In Christ in nearby Sherman — Bryan Ezell credits his parents as his “first inspirations,” in large part because aside from literally being raised in the church, he grew up watching his father showcase his musical talents in a group called “The Inspirational Gospel Singers.”

“My mom used to sing all the time around the house, and they both made my sisters and I sing too,” Bryan Ezell recalled. “My friend, Whalion Dewberry, and his brother, the late Tony Dewberry, inspired me to play the guitar, as well as my grandpa, Lewis Joshua. I thought they were the coolest guys around as I watched them play for the church and the gospel group my dad was in.”

A gospel music tenure that spans more than 15 years, Bryan Ezell has gone to great lengths to become more of a gospel artist, who customarily wears many hats, considering he possesses the immeasurable smarts as an audio engineer and music producer.

Talk about savoring the fruits of his labor, this for an overwhelmingly gifted PK whom, because of the divine calling on his life, is witnessing his gifts steadily make room for him.


“I get to do exactly what I love to do as an occupation while creating ways to connect with people in various ways,” said Bryan Ezell, whose musical talents accommodate mostly pre-teen to adults. “(My personal mission is) to connect with mankind on a natural level, to encourage and empower their spirit, and to show that Jesus can lead the way to a better life if we turn it around and live right.”


A product of the Ezell Legacy Group, LLC, Bryan Ezell also offers music services to individuals of all ages at his family’s Trinity One Records LLC studio.

Having begun singing a the tender age of two, amongst the notable lessons he was taught is that never should he accept anyone’s “No” when God has emphatically said “Yes.”

“Because I have been told to stick to my day job and been told “no,” Bryan Ezell explained. “And I vowed to rise above those statements, even if I had to do it myself, and that’s what I did.”

After all, if he’s heard it once, he’s likely heard it countless of times.

That is, whatever you do for Christ will last.


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM 

TRAINING HIM UP — Widely known as a PK — or a Preacher’s Kid, considering he’s the son of Pastor and Mrs. James Ezell (Annie) of Latter Rain Church of God In Christ in nearby Sherman, Texas — Bryan Ezell credits his parents as his “first inspirations,” in large part because aside from literally being raised in the church, he grew up watching his father showcase his musical talents in a group called “The Inspirational Gospel Singers.”

And, if God said it, that settles it.

Let the church say Amen.

“I didn’t give up after hearing (‘no’),” Bryan Ezell said. “I press the gas and grew from it, and that’s what I tell anybody. Abide in your calling and don’t give up if you believe you can do it, because nobody can stop your progress, but you.”

Talk about savoring the fruits of his labor, this for an overwhelmingly gifted PK whom, because of the divine calling on his life, is witnessing his gifts steadily make room for him.

“This event is open to all within the U. S.,” Hill, a Tulsa, Oklahoma-area minister, told Making Headline News this week.

South Jersey’s Toshira Maldonado-McIntosh set to host Daughters of Beth Empowerment Conference

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:37-39 KJV)


Given her immeasurable body of work in the Body of Christ, it’s safe to assume that Toshira Maldonado-McIntosh has become a fixture, particularly as it pertains to establishing godly connections.

MASSIVE KINGDOM IMPACT — Toshira Maldonado-McIntosh’s upcoming Daughters Of Beth Empowerment Conference figures to have a monumental impact this year, just as it has in recent years.

That, by all accounts, is amongst the notable reasons Maldonado-McIntosh’s forthcoming Daughters Of Beth Empowerment Conference figures to have a monumental impact this year, just as it has in recent years.

In offering a detailed synopsis of her conference that will take place August 18 at 9 a.m. EST at Courtyard By Marriott, located at 1001 Intrepid Avenue, in Philadelphia, Maldonado-McIntosh emphasized that this event is geared largely toward recognizing the need to address the areas of what she describes as “broken,” mostly notably areas she senses hinder and paralyzed women from achieving success.

REGISTER HERE FOR THE DAUGHTERS OF BETH CONFERENCE: https://daughtersofbeth.com/

“This conference is a gathering to focus on inner healing, personal development, and in bracing a relationship was God and each others,” Maldonado-McIntosh told Making Headline News this week. “This conference is an opportunity to grow spiritually and every woman is challenged to advance.”

Especially by way of lasting, spiritually-enhancing connections.

“Women are encouraged to make positive connections and be inspired to network in their sisterhood circles,” Maldonado-McIntosh said. “The powerful seminars and workshops have the goal of identifying strengths and inspiring sisters to live there best lives. Through segments of worship and prayer, we connect to our Heavenly Father.”

https://daughtersofbeth.com/

Interestingly and to her credit, Maldonado-McIntosh’s conference will also address a number of key issues, many of which will greatly empower women to possess and savor a healthy lifestyle.

Georgia ordained elder Dolores Jackson’s Faith Under Fire Ministry impacting lives mightily in the Body of Christ

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)

 

One thing about Dolores Jackson, she’s always going to keep it positive.

Or she’ll make it a point to observe virtually every situation or circumstance from God’s perspective.

To her credit, that certainly rings true when it comes to her crossing paths with others.

Said Jackson in a rather spirited, encouraging Facebook just before noon EST on Wednesday:

“God, I thank You for the blessing of the love of good friends. Each day, my friends shower me with love and care, and I feel comfort knowing they are always there for me. I am so grateful for each one of them, as different and unique as they are, for the things they teach me. My friends are like gemstones, so priceless and beautiful. Thank you Lord.”

And just like that, Jackson, an Georgia-based ordained elder, had appropriately exemplified yet another dose of agape love, as only she could.

“Know this…being saved is a struggle,” Jackson, 55, told Making Headline News during a recent interview, during which she recalled the memorable events leading to her having effectively accepted her divine calling in ministry.

For Jackson, a native of Holly Springs, Mississippi — a small, rural town that’s roughly 30 miles south of Memphis — it seemed a foregone conclusion that she’d ultimately assume a notable, commendable role as one of God’s devoted spokespersons.

For starters, Jackson is the product of a Christian-based foundation whereby her family is comprised of as many as a dozen ministers or preachers, she explained.

Thanks in large part to the unyielding support of her husband, her son, as well as the valiant support of a host of family members and close acquaintances, and it’s no wonder Jackson doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s destined to be on fire for God for such a time as now.

Times that, truth be told, are widely deemed as perilous.

Having been raised mostly as a Methodist, Jackson was the product of the Catholic school system, although she didn’t particularly study the Catholic religion, she acknowledged.

Nevertheless, like most of her peers — particularly those who were brought up in the church — she had become a fixture in the Body of Christ at a relatively young age.

“My mom and dad made absolutely sure that I attended church regularly,” Jackson recalled.

It is, by all accounts, because of Jackson’s desire to sellout to God during her youth that practically sums up why she’s just as on fire to serve the Lord today, a trend that, much to her delight, has given way to her emerging as the mastermind of what is known as her Faith Under Fire Ministry.

“My parents taught me to love, respect, and to work hard,” said Jackson, when asked what were amongst the key values she was taught as a child.

Demonstrating a resourceful, resilient work ethic is surely something by which Jackson has steadily kept going in her spiritual repertoire even to this very day.

“I kept falling and struggling with my faith,” she recalled.

Still, because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, even when she seemed on the brink of falling, even when it seemed her faith was bleak, even when it seemed the enemy had the upper hand on her faith walk with God, there was God, strategically setting her aside for His use.

Talk about fortifying some proverbial bend-but-don’t faith under fire.

“For God I live, and for God I will die,” Jackson often says when sharing of her assortment of faith-based testimonies. “It is not easy. If it was, we would not need Christ. It is a process.”

A process that, much to her delight, has greatly given way to her emerging as one of God’s most devoted spokespersons.

“Finally, I began to realize that Christ is part of the process, that Christ is key to the process, that Christ is the success of the process,” Jackson said.

Well said by a big-hearted woman of God, one who’s widely known for always keeping it positive.
