30th Pastoral Anniversary Celebration
Celebrating 30 years of faithful ministry and leadership
The Audacity of a
Faithful Leader”
Hebrews 13:7,17
Prophetess Smith has served our congregation, now called New Cedar Grove Missionary Baptist Church, as one of its most dynamic leaders for nearly 30 years. Since becoming the pastor, Prophetess Smith has been a driving force of spiritual leadership. Under her guidance, New Cedar Grove continues to progress towards the vision God has given her for the church. She embodies the very meaning of servant-leader and sets a Christ-like example for others to follow. Because of her love for God’s people, she establishes and oversees ministries designed to minister to the total man. She tirelessly led the church’s efforts at building a new edifice to house its many ministries. The fruit of her labor is the New Cedar Grove Missionary Baptist Church edifice which stands adjacent to the original historic building. She will not rest until the full vision is realized, and every member of the community can find a ministry to meet their spiritual and physical needs.


In October 2015, Prophetess Smith was established as a prophet of the Lord God—one who carries the authority to speak messages of grace and revelation; of edification and direction, and also of correction We thank God for her faithfulness as our pastor and pray that we are consistently receptive to the messages God sends us through this loyal prophet.
