Earlier this week we published an article announcing the appointment of the new Lead Executive Pastor of The House Of Hope Atlanta. This announcement sparked attention all over the world! We received a lot of feedback both good and bad which we don’t mind because all opinions are welcome here! We believe it’s ok to disagree just remain respectful! It still amazing to see in 2017 how many are still against women being pastors or preachers in the church. The article we published earlier this week sparked attention on several levels (1) being because the word executive was left out of the original article and many weren’t clear if Dr. Smith would no longer be preaching at The House Of Hope Atlanta on Sundays (2) being because many feel it is not biblical. Dr. Smith is the Senior Pastor of The House Of Hope Atlanta and will continue preaching as usual on Sunday mornings and Wednesday Bible Studies, in his new appointment Pastor Jennifer Carner will be over the executive ministerial components of the church. She will work along with the Chief Operations Officer in overseeing the day-to-day management of the church. She will also assist Dr. Smith with leading the Ministers and also with the preaching and teaching ministry. The article garnered over 77,000 views and is still a major conversation on social media! http://joy105.com/index.php/2017/09/14/dr-e-dewey-smith-jr-makes-history-in-141-year-old-church-by-appointing-the-first-woman-lead-executive-pastor/
Today in the midst of preaching Dr. Smith touched on the subject again and gave his thoughts and spiritual analysis about those that think otherwise:
“Many Samaritans believed in Jesus not because of a man, but because of a woman” ~Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr
Listen to the clip below:
Dr. Smith went on to elaborate on the commonly made statements that black Christians hear often, “As a black person you should not be a Christian because it came from white people during slavery. It’s not the natural religion for black people”. Hear his thoughts!
