Georgia author Angela Kinnel advancing the kingdom mightily through her work in Soulful Prayers


Pray without ceasing; in everything, give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5:17-18)


OH SWEET WONDER 

HOW GREAT THY ART — To grasp a broader concept on why God has strategically allowed Angela Kinnel to thrive and flourish in her element through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, look no further than the national hoopla surrounding her latest achievement as one of a slew of writers who collectively assembled “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — Another book, another massive step toward the God-mandated destiny for accomplished author Angela Kinnel.

To grasp a broader concept on why God has strategically allowed Kinnel to thrive and flourish in her element through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, look no further than the national hoopla surrounding her latest achievement as one of a slew of writers who collectively assembled “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”
A book that was officially released on June 29 here, Kinnel were amongst more than four dozen authors who contributed to a Christian-based written work that was spearheaded by award-winning author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.
“Once Cheryl presented the concept of the book, I knew that I had to be a part of it,” Kinnel told Making Headline News during a weekend interview.

A book that was officially released on June 29 here, Kinnel were amongst more than four dozen authors who contributed to a Christian-based written work that was spearheaded by award-winning author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

A native of Dawson, Georgia who currently resides in nearby Hampton, Kinnel was responsible for having composed the prayer entitled, “When A Parent Returns To God,” a dialogue with God Almighty that’s centered largely on the transition of a parent.

“It only took me a day to write it, because it was a prayer that I’d prayed to God already after going through my mother’s transition,” Kinnel explained. “Through this book, I’d like for my audience to know that grief is a process. But they don’t have to go through it alone. God is the Only One Who can guide you through your good days as well as your bad days.”

For what it’s worth, Kinnel essentially encourages her reading audience through this newly-produced that even while enduring the loss of parent, God is faithful and just that He’s still able to do “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” as the Apostle Paul specifically reminds us, according to Ephesians 3:20.


“You don’t have to figure out how your life is going to go one without your parent,” Kinnel said. “Place all of your trust in God. He has you covered. I want (my reading audience) to know that the pain never goes away, but God restores you to where you can live on and look forward to seeing your loved one again. Yield to Him.”


A devout woman of faith in her own right, Kinnel can greatly attest to the notion that God undoubtedly is using her to advance the kingdom, most notably as a Christian-oriented author.

That’s because Kinnel’s immeasurable authorship resume includes the books:

  • “Identity: Who Do You Think You Are?”  — a project she co-authored with Robert Johnson in 2016, which breakdowns our identity in Christ

  • “Soul Talk Volume 2: Soul-Stirring Stories Of People Who Let Go and Let God”  — a written document she co-authored with Polote-Williamson in 2018. In this book, Kinnel addresses what is known as “Stop Cheering And Get In the Game,” whereby she eloquently discusses how she overcame depression and began to cheer for herself toward, all the while pursing my dreams and,

  • “Rise, Pray & Slay: Strategies To Heal The Land” — a project she co-authored with Linda D. Lee earlier this year. In this book, Kinnel speaks from the subject entitled, “From Fear To Faith,” during which she discusses how she overcame the fear of becoming who God created her to be.


THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, Kinnel doesn’t shy away from the notion that her latest written work is synonymous with the purpose for which God has created her.

As for her valiant contributions to “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God,” the feedback since its release has been overwhelmingly favorable, Kinnel said.

“I had a young lady walk up to me at the book launch in tears,” Kinnel recalls. “She told me that she identified with my prayer, because she’d lost her mother back in 2015.  All we could do was hug each other. She also said that it encouraged her to keep trusting God through her pain.”

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, Kinnel doesn’t shy away from the notion that her latest written work is synonymous with the purpose for which God has created her.

“This book has allowed me to minister to the broken-hearted through my personal prayer,” Kinnel said. “I’ve been called to minister to the body of Christ and God has allowed me to do so through books. If what I’ve shared thus far touches at least one soul, then I’ve done what He told me to do.”

REMEMBER MOM — A native of Dawson, Georgia who currently resides in nearby Hampton, Kinnel was responsible for having composed the prayer entitled, “When A Parent Returns To God,” a dialogue with God Almighty that’s centered largely on the transition of a parent.

A few days removed from the ceremonious release of her latest project, plans are currently underway, during which Kinnel will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

Interestingly, Kinnel announced: “I am in the planning stages right now of writing my first book solo. I hope to release it by Spring 2020.”

In addition, Kinnel will be a guest speaker at the Glambitious Atlanta Entrepreneur Conference on August 24, during which she will be speaking on the subject, “Faith And Work,” as well as offer copies of her books, she said.

Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Crystal N. Tolbert ‘Walking In Greatness’ — literally and figuratively


She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. (Proverbs 31:17 NIV)


GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS 

ON A KINGDOM MISSION — As Crystal N. Tolbert explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer create a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

DALLAS — As far as the above Biblical passage goes, say this about Crystal Nicole Tolbert:

She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
In that distinctly unique order.
Consider, for instance, how Tolbert, a progressive, flourishing and devout woman of faith, had go about assuming her strategic, God-mandated assignment as the founder of Walking In Greatness Ministries, a Dallas/Fort Worth-based, faith-oriented ministry and social organization.
As Tolbert, 39, explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

“Our desire is to help woman find their value, purpose, joy, independence, and the true meaning of happiness to prepare them for their destiny to fully walk in greatness,” said Tolbert, providing a detailed synopsis of her ministry.

And then there is Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny,” a mentorship program that essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

“This (program) provides a Biblical, yet practical approach to living your life in purpose, on purpose,” Tolbert said.

An endeavor that accommodates individuals ranging mostly in ages 25 to 60, Tolbert credits what she deems a “kingdom creative for people who are ready to live a kingdom purpose life” as arguably the biggest reason she’s been blessed to oversee a Christian-based business for such a time as now.


“(I’m) continually gaining obtaining and acquiring the knowledge and skills required to have as a kingdom entrepreneur with ministry in the market place,” said Tolbert, explaining how her competitive drive in life has greatly enabled her to assemble a notable business. “I called it ‘Exit To The Platform.’”


As one of God’s “leading jewels and mentors” Tolbert has been afforded the luxury of promoting Walking in Greatness Ministries in a variety of establishments around the country, most notably Los Angeles, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Las Vegas, and Atlanta, among others.

“I really want to be able to impact and bring forth what God has place in them,” Tolbert, a Lufkin, Texas native said explaining the mission of her ministry. “It is so important to me that Jewels of Destiny are left with something of real value. I was called to be a dream changer because I have the gift to make dreams reality for the kingdom.”


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM

More than anything, though, Tolbert’s kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas. Pictured with Tolbert is her husband, Kenneth Tolbert.

A Lufkin High School and Angelina College alum, Tolbert is widely known as a devoted wife, mother, author, prophetic scribe, and speaker.

More than anything, though, her kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas.

Restored IV Purpose Ministries is located at 13624 Gamma Road.

Her itinerary also includes:

An upcoming speaking engagement in St Thomas at the Emerald Beach Resort, a Prophetic Scribe Workshop on August 3 in Los Angeles, and an appearance during the Joyful Moments Prayer Brunch on August 24 at Red Oak Municipal Center.

Armed with more than 15 years of experience in her selected line of work, Tolbert doesn’t shy away from the notion that God’s Hands have been on her life for as long as she can recall.

All of which essentially sums up why she sets about her work vigorously and her arms are strong for her tasks.

DESTINY STEPS — Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny” is mentorship program that’s essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

In that distinctly unique order.

“I want (people) to be able to be so inspired from what I share that they go back to their own various lives and put forth the action to make their dreams their own reality,” Tolbert said before offering what she labels kingdom tools to live by.

“Seek, write, and believe,” she continued. “You must seek the Lord first. Write the vision. Believe the Vision.”

To her credit, she’s doing that, with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Alabama preacher Tamika D. Pharr goes from ‘thug girl’ lifestyle to selling out solely to Jesus Christ


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, since you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58)


SOLD OUT ON JESUS 

BEAUTY FOR ASHES — Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of a credible business, Tamika D. Pharr is Mobile-area minister as the beloved Co-Pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Church, a tradition-rich, historic institution that also has a campus in Richmond, California.

DALLAS — Tamika D. Pharr could be appropriately described as a number of things.

For starters, she’s an accomplished businesswoman as a resourceful sales consultant with Paparazzi, a globally-acclaimed venture that’s widely known for offering consumers fashion-forward jewelry and product parties.

She’s a proud mother of two, a grandmother of three, and a mother-in-“love” to whom she often describes as a “beautiful young lady.”
More than anything, though, Pharr would be the first to tell you that she’s devout woman of faith, one’s who deems it essential to go to great lengths to proclaim the matchless Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Never mind that this Mobile, Alabama native was raised in what the urban community has dubbed the School of Hard Knocks.
“I had a rough upbringing. But God,” Pharr, 43, told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “(I’ve) seen a lot, heard a lot, done a lot. But God.”

MORE ON TABERNACLE OF PRAISE: https://www.facebook.com/Tabernacle-of-Praise-Church-of-Mobile-Alabama-Richmond-CA-845016335556713/

And because Pharr, a resourceful, resilient, spiritually-empowering minister, doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is, by all accounts, the Focal Point of her life, it’s safe to assume that life as she knows it is, well, far more superior than her rough upbringing.

Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of a credible business, Pharr is Mobile-area minister as the beloved Co-Pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Church, a tradition-rich, historic institution that also has a campus in Richmond, California.

Widely regarded as a Christian-centered ministry that accompanied by the slogan, “Changing The World With The Word,” Tabernacle of Praise is pastored by Apostle Timothy D. Monigan.

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Pharr is an accomplished businesswoman as a resourceful sales consultant with Paparazzi, a globally-acclaimed venture that’s widely known for offering consumers fashion-forward jewelry and product parties.

For Pharr, that she was steadfastly brought up in the church and raised in an environment where she customarily was taught Biblical principles has proven beneficial to her, considering even to this day, she’s still very much on fire for Almighty God.

Only now, she’s serving and paying homage to Him from a much larger stage.

“My family taught me that when you learn better, you do better,” said Pharr, recalling vividly the memorable developments of her childhood. “That took a while to set in on me, because I was a thug girl, but God turned me into a church girl.”

Widely regarded as a Christian-centered ministry that accompanied by the slogan, “Changing The World With The Word,” Tabernacle of Praise is pastored by Apostle Timothy D. Monigan.

As Pharr explained, it took a relatively solid supporting cast of godly women who collectively helped steer her from the School of Hard Knocks as a “thug girl” to, well, Sunday School — pretty much on the regular.


“I have my grandmother Pruitt, (who was) an elder of love and understanding at Primitive Baptist Church until her health change and God called her home,” Pharr recalled. “My grandmother, Pauline James, plays a great big part in my life. She also helped raise me. My great grandmother, Mary Pharr, is the mother of St. Luke Church, where she’s been a member since before I was born. She is now 100 years old and her health has changed. My great aunt, Pastor Shirley Edwards and I, are the newest pastors in the family.”


For Pharr, that she was steadfastly brought up in the church and raised in an environment where she customarily was Biblical principles has proven beneficial to her, considering even to this day, she’s still very much on fire for Almighty God.

Sadly as it is to say, Pharr’s rise to becoming a full-time minister hasn’t been fully accepted by some whom she sensed would offer valiant support.

“Well, since I became pastor, a lot of family and friends have fell off, but I heard the Lord say that He will add unto me,” Pharr said without hesitation. “I saw God positioning me for ministry back in 2008 after I lost my 10-week-old baby.”

As it turned out, Pharr’s losing an unborn child essentially served a defining moment, of sorts, for this beloved, bigger-than-life thug girl-turned-woman of the cloth.

“I heard the Lord say He has need of me,” Pharr said in the wake of her dreaded miscarriage.

WE ARE FAMILY — “My family taught me that when you learn better, you do better,” said Pharr, recalling vividly the memorable developments of her childhood. “That took a while to set in on me, because I was a thug girl, but God turned me into a church girl.”

To her credit, this young preacher hasn’t looked back since.

If nothing else, she’s diligently drawn closer and closer to God which, in dramatic sequence of events, is a far cry from the proverbial thug girl life.

Having officially accepted her calling to preach the Gospel in 2011 — “I heard God call my name, using a familiar voice,” she recalls — Pharr initially sensed that it was actually her unborn baby who was calling her name.

Oddly as it might seem, she eventually heard her name called three times.

One for the Father.

One for the Son.

One for the Holy Ghost.

In that order.

As it turned out, Pharr’s losing unborn child essentially served a defining moment, of sorts, for this beloved, bigger-than-life thug girl-turned-woman of the cloth.

And if God said it, that settles it.

“My testimony is when God say go, obey His voice,” Pharr said. “I told God I didn’t want to do this. First of all, I thought I wasn’t worthy enough. Then I still wanted to sit at the bar and stay in the club.”

Still, in spite of her rebelliousness, amongst the things that Pharr had ultimately discovered is that if God has a dire need of you, He’ll find His way to the bar and club.

In no particularly order.

“One night, as I was sitting in the club, I heard a Voice so clear and I started looking around for someone,” Pharr explained. “I heard Him again, so I got up and ran out the club like I just seen a ghost.”

In essence, that’s what actually happened.


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

As Pharr explained, it took a relatively solid supporting cast of godly women who collectively helped steer her from the School of Hard Knocks as a “thug girl” to, well, Sunday School — pretty much on the regular.

Only this time, it was the Holy Ghost.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

“I have been going since then,” Pharr, who plans to compose a book that depicts her life, said of having found her niche in ministry. “He called me out the club to the church, from a thug girl to a church girl.”

Which goes to show that today, she could be appropriately described as a number of things.

A beloved spokesperson for Christ topping the list.

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.

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.

Houston author Brandi Ashford writes a spiritually-empowering book for such a pivotal time as now


If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5 NIV)


FREEDOM OF EXCELLENCE 

STAYING IN FAITH — A native of Houston, Prophetess Brandi Ashford has appropriately accepted and embraced yet another God-mandated assignment, most notably as the mastermind behind the newly-released book entitled, “Keys to Freedom 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory.”

DALLAS — A couple of hours before midday CST on Friday, Prophetess Brandi Ashford took to her Facebook page, where she staged to her timeline a rather absorbing, yet familiar post.

Said Ashford before her 2,600-plus social media followers: Never let someone’s negative opinion become your reality.
For Ashford, such a prevalent catchphrase, to her credit, has become a personal theme, of sorts, especially for a devout woman of faith, who has become widely known as “The Fireball.”
Because truth be told, Ashford’s keen reputation is such that she not only hasn’t merely allowed the negative perceptions of others distract or deter her from her God-orchestrated purpose. But most importantly, she goes to great lengths to ensure that she will continue to bask in the glory of walking in the divine purpose for which she was created.

Widely dubbed, “a power packed 30-day devotional written to shift your life,” Ashford’s “Keys to Freedom: 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory” is extremely essential for such a pivotal time as now, for such a time that, according to various Biblical scholars, has been widely regarded as “these last and evil days” or “the last of the last and evil days.”

Consider, for instance, Ashford’s awe-inspiring vision through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

Or, to put it more forthrightly, a time whereby countless of believers essentially are steering from the household of faith.

A longtime resident of Houston, amongst the things about which Ashford is especially grateful is that God had strategically handpicked her to construct a spiritually-enhancing and spiritually-gut-checking project that figures to impact the kingdom mightily — much sooner than later.

As Ashford explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, she has become destined to help advance the kingdom, thus do whatever in her God-given power to help provide those in the Body of Christ with some much-needed spiritual relief, courtesy of her month-long devotionals.

“The divine message I am sending to my (reading) audience is that you have the keys to unlock freedom within you,” said Ashford, offering a detailed and solid synopsis of her newly-assembled book.

Much to her delight, once she had made up her mind to sellout completely unto God, something that ultimately gotten a hold of her (as an old songwriter once wrote).

“I became free,” said Ashford, recalling how her life-changing had all unfolded. “I used my keys to unlock my freedom and walk in purpose.’

And, the rest, as they say, was history.

THUS SAID THE LORD…

Look at her today, walking fervently in her divine purpose for such a pivotal time as now, for such a time that, according to various Biblical scholars, has been widely regarded as “these last and evil days” or “the last of the last and evil days.”

In case you’ve forgotten.

Now just days away from the release of “Keys to Freedom: 30 Day Enlightenment and Morning Glory,” Ashford’s gift is already making a room for her through this book, considering she will be on hand in Atlanta the first weekend in June for the much-anticipated unveiling of her written work.

MORE TO COME — Next up for this Christian-based author: the upcoming release of Book No. 2, this one entitled, “Divorcing My Past To walk In Destiny” at a date that has yet to be announced.

Next up for this Christian-based author: the upcoming release of Book No. 2, this one entitled, “Divorcing My Past To walk In Destiny” at a date that has yet to be announced.As for her latest book, well, Ashford, doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s excited to have taken yet another major step in her ministry.

“I chose to produce this book because one day, I was riding to work that morning,  I was having a long week that was very stressful and I said, ‘God I want to do a daily devotional that women can have when they get up in the morning and read day-by-day,” Ashford recalled. “And it came to mind: ‘Keys To Freedom Enlightenment And Morning Glory.’”

A positive, life-changing perception that has become her reality.

Yep. That’s just like God.

Missouri author Roxanne Potter flexing her spiritual muscles, courtesy of her empowering books


For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. (2 Corinthians 4:17 KJV) 


THE POTTER’S TOUCH 

GOD’S THE POTTER, SHE’S THE CLAY — A Mount Vernon, Missouri-based author who is a licensed minister, as well as the Founder of Roxanne Potter Ministries, Incorporated, Roxanne Potter’s has written two books to date, both of which are indicative of the immeasurable strides she’s made since she has sold out completely to God.

DALLAS — In a rather appropriate way of playing off words, Roxanne Potter was determined to do it afraid for such a time as this.

A time during which God was strategically using her for His glory.

“Four years ago, God laid it on my heart to share parts of my testimony,” Potter, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said of her vision to compose her first book entitled, “For Such A Time As This.”

“And two years ago, God laid it on my heart to write my first journey through cancer,” said Potter, alluding to her second written work entitled, “Do It Afraid.”

A Mount Vernon, Missouri-based author who is a licensed minister, as well as the Founder of Roxanne Potter Ministries, Incorporated, Potter’s books are indicative of the immeasurable strides she’s made since she has sold out completely to God.

A book that is comprised 74 pages, Potter’s “For Such A Time As This” was officially released on January 26, 2016 and is centered largely on Roxanne’s journey to finding what she’s deemed her “God moment,” according to a detailed introduction of this book at https://www.amazon.com/Such-Time-as-This/dp/1512727148.

BUY ROXANNE’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Do-Afraid-Roxanne-Potter/dp/1633082717

Released on June 8, 2017, Potter’s “Do It Afraid” is an 80-page written document that recalls this Christian-based writer’s assortment of life-altering experiences with breast cancer, particularly how she was determined not to allow it to have her.

“She conquered it with God’s help,” said a spokesperson for Potter’s “Do It Afraid” in a thorough breakdown at https://www.amazon.com/Do-Afraid-Roxanne-Potter/dp/1633082717. “She did everything that she knew would irritate the devil and pleases the Lord. She became a warrior. Her prayer is that as you read this book, you will find tips and tools to help you overcome fear and be equipped in whatever battle that you may be facing.”

As for the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books, Potter wasted little time being rather forthright and direct.

Or, in a rather appropriate way of playing off words, this devout woman of faith was determined to do it afraid for such a time as this.

“Don’t give up,” Potter said with such authority. “Don’t give up on God. No matter what you have been through and what you are going though, it does not define you and you do not have to remain a victim, but you can be victorious through Jesus Christ.”

Much to her delight and to her credit, the feedback since the ceremoniously release of her books have been favorable.

“Lots of faith, hope, and inspiration birthed out of these books and always in demand,” Potter said. “And with the transparency of both books, people have absolutely loved it and said it made them feel they can achieve too.”

IT’S A GOOD — Much to her delight and to her credit, the feedback since the ceremoniously release of her books have been favorable.

For Potter, amongst the things about which she’s convinced is that her spiritually-empowering books undoubtedly are signs of things to come.

“(I want) To help many women and young ladies along with men realize that all things are possible with God,” she said. “I was called to inspire people to go after God. Through these books, I hold major women’s conferences, speak, and sing, which, are all the calling of God on my life.”

Especially for such a time as this.

Dallas/Fort Worth entrepreneur Delissia D. Witt making much noise as one of area’s finest tax preparers

ARLINGTON’S FINEST 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — A native of Arlington, Texas, Delissia D. Witt is a longtime Tax Preparer Trainer and Certified Notary for Tax Nation LLC.

ARLINGTON, Texas — For Delissia D. Witt, time is extremely precious to her.

That is why she’s become greatly empowered to make the most of it.

Every. Single. Day.

“I now pursue my dream of owning my own time,” Witt told Making Headline News this week. “And I’m a full time businesswoman with experience, knowledge…a down-to-earth businesswoman with a big personality.”

For what it’s worth, it is due in large part to Witt’s larger-than-life personality, coupled with her keen resourcefulness that have catapulted her to her divine purpose as a progressive, thriving businesswoman.

A native of Arlington, Texas, Witt is a longtime Tax Preparer Trainer and Certified Notary for Tax Nation LLC.


CONNECT WITH DELISSIA WITT: https://www.facebook.com/TaxNationUSAGreenOaks/

Located at 835 NE Green Oaks Boulevard in Arlington, Tax Nation boasts a staff that is dedicated to providing excellent customer service, being knowledgeable of tax laws, and, most importantly, serving its respective community.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

For starters, Witt’s mother for years owned a licensed in-home daycare venture, which afforded her the golden opportunity to gain some hands on experience as a young businesswoman.

“I handled her clients, paid employees, collected money from parents, and had a curriculum for the children,” Witt recalled.

As it turned out, such a solid work ethic continued well into her high school years.

LOOK AT HER NOW — Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“While in high school, I was one of the leaders who started a step team and made it apart of the curriculum,” Witt explained. “We were the first black step team at Martin High School. After high school, I worked full time at an insurance company and went to Tarrant County Community College, (where) I was doing auditions for plays.”

A notable resume that also includes being a contestant in the Miss Black Texas pageant — she actually won the talent portion, largely because of her immeasurable acting skills — Witt eventually would become a founding member of the Beta Phi Chi Sorority/Fraternity that was spearheaded by Dennis Dotson.

Interestingly, she had become a fixture in the “What Should A Sista Do?” stage play.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

All things considered, Witt’s wealth of experience as a successful businesswoman has benefited her mightily throughout the years.

And, while taking questions from the media this week, Witt didn’t hesitate to emphasize that as a longtime professional tax preparer who boasts immeasurable success, she’s destined to make her presence felt in her native establishment of Arlington.

Never mind that a rash of stumbling blocks had essentially given way to her enduring an unlikely hiatus from her business.

“After a divorce, I let my business go after five years and I got back into the corporate world and went to school for taxes,” Witt said.


MRS. WITT IS LIT 

And, the rest, as they say, was history.

Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“I inspire others by sharing my abusive experience with them and how God brought me out,” Witt said. “Being a business partner of Tax Nation has taught me even more in business. I want to educate all my clients to ensure them of their tax situation.”

Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

SHE ISN’T DONE YET — Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

Having been partnered with Tax Nation for the past five years, Witt has ventured off and started Divine Business Services, which customarily allows her to serve clients by aiding them to keep their business-related goals and ambitions intact.

“Out of my trials and tribulations I’ve been through, I’ve learned from them and turned them into a business and a way to help this upcoming generation,” Witt said.

She has no time to waste.

Every. Single. Day.

Letitia Scott Jackson’s DFW-based Keeping Families Connected nonprofit organization becoming a national fixture


“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for Me.” (Matthew 25:40 NIV) 


DALLAS — Letitia Scott Jackson took to the airwaves over the weekend for all the right reasons.

Appearing on Dallas/Fort Worth’s 97.9 The Beat, Scott Jackson wasted little time offering some rather profound, spirited words of encouragement to the station’s thousands of listeners across the Metroplex.

ALL IN THE FAMILY 

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW SEASON — A Dallas/Fort Worth-based non-profit organization that Leititia Scott Jackson erected approximately four years ago, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.
Said Scott Jackson in a rather forthright suggestion. “If you woke up this morning and didn’t thank God for waking you up, you are out of order.”
To grasp a thorough concept of why the opportunistic Scott Jackson deems it essential to embrace virtually every opportunity that’s afforded to her, look no further than how God has gone about moving on her behalf during a time when it seemed countless of others had written her off.

Wrongfully convicted only to wound up emerging victorious during her case that unfolded in the Texas Fifth Circuit Courts, Scott Jackson had become greatly inspired to establish Keeping Families Connected.

A DFW-based nonprofit organization that Scott Jackson erected approximately four years ago, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.

“We believe that family matters most,” said a spokesperson for this thriving, flourishing nonprofit organization in a detailed overview at https://www.keepingfamilyconnected.org/.

A native of Houston who was raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, Scott Jackson is thoroughly convinced that her organization is steadily becoming a fixture throughout the region but, most importantly, she’s convinced it aligns solely with the purpose for which she was created.

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — Appearing on Dallas/Fort Worth’s 97.9 The Beat over the weekend, Scott Jackson wasted little time offering some rather profound words of encouragement to the station’s thousands of listeners across the Metroplex.

“My mission is for Keeping Families Connected to become a household name worldwide and eventually be able to provide free prison transportation in other states as the need is so great,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

In order to better aid and promote her organization — particularly on national platforms — Scott Jackson has announced that she and her staff  will be launching a Keeping Families mobile app, which is scheduled to go into effect as early as June 1, 2019 during its Third Annual Creations of Fashion For A Cause Runway Show.

This yearly event, Scott Jackson said, is designed for children from various walks of life, particularly teens and young adults from Keeping Families Connected, during which they will participate in modeling, as well as meet and interact with professional models.

For Scott Jackson, the startup of her organization comes amid arguably the darkest chapter of her life.

“I couldn’t see my kids, because they were left with caregivers, who couldn’t afford to bring them to see them,” said Scott Jackson, recalling the tumultuous developments that fueled her desire to establish her nonprofit. “My daughters were in Louisiana and I was in Texas.”

Still, after the dust had ultimately settled and Scott Jackson had emerged victorious by winning her case, it wasn’t long thereafter that God had emphatically showed her why He had entrusted her to endure, yet conquer so much heartache and pain, both of which she emphatically outlasted.

Look at her today, walking fervently in her purpose as an accomplished businesswoman, who’s also widely known as a published author, public speaker, musician, and humanitarian.

To her credit, she birthed Keeping Families Connected out of “a personal desire,” one that would enable her to customarily make meaningful contributions to the lives of those who are incarcerated while being separated an extended period time from family members.

MAKING MUCH NOISE — Interestingly and to her credit, Scott Jackson’s Keeping Families Connected is, by all accounts, an effective institution, considering it’s also committed to rebuilding families and fostering life skills in youth and young adults from broken homes, Scott Jackson emphasized.

“Ever since (she was wrongfully convicted), she wants to spread the hope of redemption and connection one interaction, a letter to an inmate, and one prison visit at a time,” said a spokesperson for Scoot Jackson’s organization. “She also has a passion for speaking to youth and young adults about making the best choices now based on her own past experiences. She has been blessed to build several businesses and mentor students and members of her church to define their own success.”

“My mission is for Keeping Families Connected to become a household name worldwide and eventually be able to provide free prison transportation in other states as the need is so great,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

Interestingly and to her credit, Scott Jackson’s Keeping Families Connected is, by all accounts, an effective institution, considering it’s also committed to rebuilding families and fostering life skills in youth and young adults from broken homes, she emphasized.

“For four years, we have been providing free breakfast, lunch, and transportation to prison facilities throughout the state of Texas for (people), especially kids that have incarcerated parents and individuals that have incarcerated loved ones,” Scott Jackson said.

Talk about being in total alignment with the purpose for which she was created.


COMING FULL CIRCLE 

SEASON OF THE REBIRTH — To her credit, Scott Jackson birthed Keeping Families Connected out of “a personal desire,” one that would enable her to customarily make meaningful contributions to the lives of those who are incarcerated while being separated an extended period time from family members.

“My life’s trials and tribulations set me up for this journey,” Scott said. “I lost my mom, my dad, and my only son to death, and I really feel that God was removing all of my leaning posts so that I could find my connection and my calling in life and, more so, to help me maximize my potential.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that.

And, what’s remarkably astounding is that she’s nowhere out of order.

Not by a long shot.

Boston preacher Bishop Ronald S. Hobson, Sr. advancing the kingdom mightily as leader of The Reconstruction Church


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 KJV)


DALLAS — Just a few days ago, Dr. Ronald S Hobson, Sr. found himself reminiscing, among other things, about how his family had gone about making peace with Jesus Christ.

Without question, it was arguably the best discovery of his young life.

As Dr. Hobson — a Boston-area pastor who’s widely known as Bishop Hobson — explained, it all unfolded sometime after the tragic death of grandmother, during which his family consequently attended the historic Jefferson Temple Church of God In Christ in nearby North Bellport, New York.
Ironically, Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD 

GOD’S MIGHTY SPOKESPERSON — A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Ronald S. Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

“It was after she accepted Christ that our journey as a family into the Christian faith began,” Bishop Hobson told Making Headline News this week.

For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher, whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people.

God’s people, to be more direct.

A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Bishop Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

MORE ON TRC: https://thereconstructionchurch.org/

Located at 80 Pleasant Street in Brockton, Massachusetts, The Reconstruction Church has adopted a notable commitment that is centered largely on serving its community through various programs, many of which are geared toward people’s spiritual needs.

“We are not hear to judge, but to help you change the way you think about your faith,” said a spokesperson for The Reconstruction Church in a detailed introduction of this flourishing ministry at https://thereconstructionchurch.org/.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census — it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

He’s also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

Having always looked up to and admired his pastor, Bishop Ralph L. Jefferson — “I still admire him today,” he often says — it was due in large part to his spiritual father’s unorthodox style of preaching, coupled with what Bishop Hobson describes as his “tenacity in preaching The Word” that greatly fueled his desire to want to follow in his footsteps.

PROMOTED BY GOD — Dr. Hobson was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O. Kinnings in nearby Philadelphia before being reaffirmed and dually consecrated to the Office of Bishopric and Presiding Prelate of Preachers United Fellowship in August 2006 by the Episcopal Board of Bishops of Alpha & Omega Ministries, Bishop Lee A. Davis (California).

Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is especially appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best way she knew how, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its share of challenges.

“Like any other inner-city, I was introduced to many vises and avenues that were not ideal and economically friendly,” Bishop Hobson recalls. “I had to do what I had to do to survive.”

Regardless, amongst the notable factors with which this young preacher had come to grips was that only what he does for Christ will last. So realistically, there was no running from the calling and purpose for which he was created.

MOM KNOWS BEST — For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people. God’s people, to be more direct.

“The amazing part of everything was that the church became my outlet and focus,” Bishop Hobson explained. “The more I attended, the more comfortable I grew to accept this Jesus my pastor so eloquently shared through his preaching and teachings. The church became my focal point for change. My pastor took the time to teach me all he could for me to become someone or something in life. He poured into me daily values and practices of clean, godly living. He wanted to ensure that I made godly decisions in life.”

All of which practically sums up why this young preacher from a rural town on Long Island has been set aside for God’s use, all the while steadily having a massive impact in advancing the kingdom for such a time as now.

Never mind that according to Bishop Hobson, the awe-inspiring events that had ultimately given way to his divine call to ministry weren’t merely easy, he often recalls.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census, it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

“It was life-changing,” he typically says without hesitation.

Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

He’s been preaching ever since.

Bishop Hobson also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

“Remembering the day when my pastor laid his hands on me, he shared with me a dream I had the night before,” Bishop Hobson recalled. “The Lord knew what He showed me in my dream, but my pastor’s prophetic discernment by The Spirit of God was led to share the dream. He said, ‘Son, God has called you to preach.’ After that, I hit the floor – slain in The Spirit.”

He’s been slain in The Spirit ever since.

He hasn’t looked back ever since.

Credit the fact that He’s been sold out to God ever since.

In no particularly order.

IT’S ALL GOOD — Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best of her capabilities, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its challenges. Pictured with Bishop Hobson are his sons, Ron, Jr. and Christopher.

Having become a licensed minister the same year he delivered his first sermon, Bishop Hobson was ordained and installed as a Pastor in October 2002 by Bishop Ralph L. Harmon, Milford, DE.

 

Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

Consequently, he was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O. Kinnings in nearby Philadelphia before being reaffirmed and dually consecrated to the Office of Bishopric and Presiding Prelate of Preachers United Fellowship in August 2006 by the Episcopal Board of Bishops of Alpha & Omega Ministries, Bishop Lee A. Davis (California).

Having studied at Empire State College in Buffalo, New York, Bishop Hobson enrolled at the University of Phoenix, during which his concentration was Business Administration.  Having matriculated from Encouraging Faith Theological University with honors, Bishop Hobson is an accomplished author who wrote “Who’s Your Moses?”

KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON — Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

“Accepting what God allowed was my new momentum and vision focus,” Bishop Hobson said of his well-publicized ministerial career. “I felt secure in knowing Chrissy was in the safest arms. I knew I had to continue to preach the Good News. I’ve learned that through the course of healing that I have to love and not hate…press to impress Christ and live the best life I could for Him, because tomorrow is not promised to anyone, not even me.”

All things considered, that, without question, was arguably the best discovering of his young life.

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.

“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…
