Unprecedented times demand and require courageous leadership that awakens purpose in others. Mother Barbara Bryant — the newly appointed Jurisdictional Supervisor of Southern California First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction’s Department of Women — has answered the call to empower the largest, multifaceted women’s department in the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) denomination.
The “trailblazing torch” has been figuratively passed to Mother Bryant from the Church of God in Christ’s world-renowned General Supervisor and Jurisdictional Supervisor Emerita, Mother Barbara McCoo Lewis, and Mother Bryant is poised to illuminate her God-given path with unique abilities for this new age.
Mother Barbara Bryant — a skilled administrator and innovative visionary—is successfully charting new territory through her ground-breaking initiatives, programs and events. Equipped with professional acumen and anointed, ministerial tools, Mother Bryant has prayerfully begun to execute a vision that addresses the diverse needs of women in Southern California First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction and beyond.
Her transformative leadership inspires women of all ages with diverse stories to grow spiritually, professionally and relationally, while simultaneously serving their communities. Mother Bryant’s holistic approach tackles the challenges women commonly face today and provides avenues for women to build upon their existing strengths.
The partial list of initiatives, programs and events provides a snapshot of the department’s impactful work under Mother Bryant’s leadership:
Although Mother Bryant has received numerous commendations, Bishop Joe L. Ealy and the constituency of Southern California First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction will formally honor Mother Bryant’s elevation at a celebration luncheon on Saturday, May 7, at the beautiful Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel in Buena Park, California.
