New Emerging Female Preachers

Updated on October 15, 2015

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!


If you are in the Nashville Area, you are cordially invited to Tri-Fold Outreach, "Women in Ministry Conference which will be held at Dixon United Methodist Church on November 13-14. Please visit for more information.

      Actually, female pastors and male nurses are completely different. The Bible states in 1 Timothy 2-3, 2 Timothy 1:5, and Titus 1-2 that women should not be in authority over men (as far as church leadership goes, not in reference to business or government, etc.) It states that women can be in authority over other women and children, but that a man should be the head of the church. As much as I love the fact that women want to stand up for Christ and preach the gospel, I don't agree with them becoming pastors, and it's not because I have some old-fashioned view that women are incapable of anything other than being a housewife. I actually am wanting to get involved in Women's ministry myself. But I believe in the Word of God, the ENTIRE word, and it says that women were not meant to be headpastors of the church. We have a different role in the body of Christ. It all started in the garden of Eden after the fall of man. In Genesis 2:16 it says, "...Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.'" God meant for the man to be head of the marriage and of the church. Trust me, your grandchildren will have plenty of opportunities to do ministry. ministry doesn't even have to take place in the church, it can be anywhere. When it comes to the church, it shouldn't be a battle of the sexes. As far as women's rights goes, we should leave that to the political aspects of life and allow humility and submission to be that of the church.

      Sadly I heard the other day the reason why this older lady left a congregation was the female preacher. I am very demanding but I need more than gender or race to make me change. I am so happy to see this Hub! Thank you! Not a field for me but females deserve the opportunity. I want my grand children to have the option no different than male nurses. Thank you very much!
