New Emerging Female Preachers
It's Your Time!
Ebony published an article in November of 1993, "15 Greatest Black Women Preachers," I believe this was a wonderful article and much needed in bringing recognition to women in ministry who have touch and saved many lives through their preaching. I must say, its wonderful what God is doing in the ministry. God is calling and raising so many female ministers up. We have been Blessed by the ministries of Dr. Renita Weems, Bishop Vashti McKenzie, Dr. Carolyn Knight, Prophetess Juanita Bynum, Rev. Jacqueline McCullough, Rev. Cynthia Hale, and the late Rev. Praitha Hall, she was one of the guest womanist professors and lecturers who taught me while at Interdenominational Theological Center.
And now, God is raising another generation of prolific female preachers such as Pastor Hannah Conley, Rev. Tamara Lewis, Rev. Dee Dawkins-Haigler, Elder Opal Scales, Elder Donna Matthews, Pastor Tamika Robertson, Pastor Kathy Britt, Pastor Angela Walker, Dr. June Knight, Minister Mindy Brown, Prophetess Lashondria Snipes, Minister Rhonda Siggers, Minister Brittany Gaines, Minister Kellie Morgan, Minister Jana Hall, Prophetess Tammy Flagg, Elder Eleanor Tyson, Rev. Janie Sterling, Prophetess Empress Bolton, Elder Maria Fite, Pastor Lisa Butler, Apostle Cheryl Womack, Minister Quiana Corbin, and I couldn't leave myself out, Chaplain Yolanda Walker. These women have the faith and tenacity, and the power not only to preach but for some to speak prophetically, minister healing, and counseling. Some of them have been in preparation of theological training and seminary and were or currently attending Vanderbilt University, American Baptist College, and Interdenominational Theological Center.
We are so thankful to all the women who have been the forunners for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There are so many who are well deserving and should be included in this list as well, however, time and space, will not allow us to do so. Many female preachers, have had to endure much persecution, and yet they remained faithful. So to all the female ministers all over the world, thank you for your leadership and ministry.
Some of the new emerging female ministers I have mentioned, some of you have never heard of them, but as Bishop Jakes would say, So, "Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready!" There season is coming, many of them have been hidden in preparation, but God is about to supernaturally birth their ministries and bring them before many people. Not for their Glory, but For God's Glory. So, Get Ready, Get Ready, Get Ready! Get Ready! To all the ministers, I just mentioned, and the many that I am unable to list , I will leave a blank, ______________please call your name as well, and know, It's Your Time!
