An Evangelist and Pastor for 25 Years in the Church, I was Led out by the Holy Spirit!
I had no plans to leave the church. After 25 years of ministry as an evangelist, a pastor and a teacher in a well known African-American denomination, I had become “comfortable,” in spite of the fact that I knew “up front and personally in my face,; THAT THE DENOMINATION IS CORRUPT AND HAD BEEN FOR DECADES BEFOR I EVEN ARRIVED. I stayed because I thought it was my mission to cause the denomination to repent.
So when the Lord spoke to me in a dream and told me that I had to leave, I was hoping that I had heard from the devil, as I did not want to go.
I left the institutional church in 2004. While in the church, I wrote one book, in 1995-1996. Since 2004, I have written 7 books!!!! About to start another!!! Besides being a minister, I worked full time in the human services field for 25 years, having retired in 1997. I worked in various aspects of human services and therapy, licensed to practice in my field for decades.
The picture below was taken on October 25, 1981. It is the day I preached my trial sermon and was licensed to preach. I have been one of the Lord’s handmaidens now for almost 38 years. If you enlarge the picture, you will see the head of a gargoyle, a fallen angel, outlined in green. That is a long story. I will simply say that I don’t worry about him as powerful angels sent from God protect me.
I was born again in my home on 3/29/1977, 41 years in the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, blessed to be still on the battlefield for Him.
