Pastor Raq

Pastor, first lady, administrator

Pastor Raq aka "First Lady" is both an Administrator and Servant at heart. Outreach is her calling and passion. She has many gifts and talents and is determined to use everything she has for God's Glory and to help people.  She is gifted to go into any area, building or any space and show you how to maximize your space. She loves to develop programs and services  that will help to meet the needs of children, individuals and families and equip them to be able to come out of their situation.  

In this season, God is using her to advocate on others behalf. Men, Women, Children, Health issues, Services and Programs that will help people get what they need for their daily lives. "There are too many people settling for things that are happening to them, and we as Believers, need to fight not just with the good fight of faith, but in action as well. It is time for us as the Church to come out of hiding and say what God's Word says and do what God's Word says we can do. We have the ANSWER. We are the ANSWER."

Born and raised in Harlem, NY, she believes that the inner city is her mission field and is determined to reach people where they are and show them the Love of God. While she can be found behind the scenes, God's calling on her life, is bringing her out of hiding into the forefront.  Her 1st Women's Conference, And This Time Around... is set to be a prophetic call bringing women out of their shell, delivered from their past, and moving forward in faith to do what God has called them to do. And This Time Around Women's Conference is June 23rd and June 24th, 2023.
