Rev.Teresa Hord Ownes Set To Become The First Black Woman To Lead A Mainline Protestant Denomination In North America.


Reader if it be God will tomorrow Rev. Teresa Hord Owens will become the general minister and president of the Disciples of Christ. The appointment, pending an election on July 9 during the Disciples of Christ General Assembly in Indianapolis, will make Owens the first Black woman to lead a mainline Protestant denomination in North America.

“Her nomination represents an opportunity for us to continue the important transformation of the church,” said Chris Dorsey, Disciples of Christ president of higher education and leadership ministries. “We seek to be a church that is more inclusive and more holistic, and she is the right person to help us do that.”

Owens, a native Hoosier, was raised in Terre Haute and is a direct descendant of the free people of color who founded the Lost Creek settlement in Vigo County. She has been an active member of the Disciples denomination since she was a young adult, when she and her mother moved to Indianapolis and attended Second Christian, now known as Light of the World Christian Church.

  1. I know this lady will serve her appointment well as she will TEACH the whole WORD OF GOD - "the man is the head of the woman".

    I pray she would preach the whole unadulterated truths of Scripture, in particular verses like I Timothy 2:12 "But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence."

    I pray she would expound from the Bible, the Word of God 1 Corinthians 14:34 "Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.".

    2. @anonymous... we know those who operate contrary to Scripture ignore those verses or put a so called relative twist on them. I wonder how many female preachers/pastors isogete those scripture texts with a clear conscience.

    3. It's unreal. It's no different from what the LGBT has done by coming out with the Queen's James Bible... sickening.....
