She looks forward to serving this great church in the area of education. It is her hortatory conviction that the Sunday School is the educational training ground for the church.

Her ardent belief is sharing the gospel to those who are lost in order to strengthen them through discipleship of the Word of God. Adherence to the Presiding Bishop Charles Blake’s call to this great church for Experiencing the Power of Jesus Christ, Pursing His Mission and His Righteousness is the premiere goal for this servant of the Most High God.
