This Is My Story

Testimonies and Sermons of Black Women in Ministry
  • By Cleophus LaRue
  • By Cleophus James LaRue

African American women continue to confess their call to ministry even when they know such a confession may cause them to face ostracism and criticism from many of the same men and women who nurtured them in the faith.

In This is My Story, thirteen successful African American women clergy tell the inspirational and heartbreaking stories about their calls and ministerial journeys, which they experienced in the midst of anguish, uncertainty, and in many cases unfriendly leadership environments. Each of the women includes a sermon of particular importance to her.

Contributors include: Cokiesha Lashon Bailey, Cecilia E. Greene Barr, Deborah K. Blanks, Alsyon Diane Browne, Delores Carpenter, Odessa Coder, Claudette Anderson Copeland, LaVerne M. Gill, Alison P. Gise Johnson, Cynthia L. Hale, Carla Jones, Cheryl A. Kirk-Duggan, and Charlotte McSwine-Harris.
