The New Hope Baptist Church Phenomenal Story

By: Minister Angela Lee Price

There's a gospel song that says, “I'm just a ‘nobody’ trying to tell 'everybody' about 'somebody' who can save 'anybody'." Well, the women and congregation of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, Radcliffe, Kentucky really made this 'nobody' feel phenomenally special on Sunday, February 18th. There was a beautiful spirit in the sanctuary as we celebrated Jesus Christ, woman of color, and black history at the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church "Phenomenal Women of Today" Black History Program.

The two-hour program was awe-inspiring. The youth choir sang, steppers stepped, four phenomenal women told of what it meant to be "Proverbs 31" women, and a sistah presented an awesome skit demonstrating God’s love for people of color. Panelists Minister Audrey Lee, LTC Active Duty U.S. Army, Aundrea Locke, Human Resources Director, Nelson County Kentucky Schools , Alicia Savannah Gibson, Owner/Director Commonwealth Medical Training Center, and myself shared frank testimonies and offered advice on careers, education, forgiveness, family, and relationships in answering questions from the audience of approximately 200. To my surprise, a fair number of men attended and listened attentively to all that was said.

To God be the glory for what He is doing through people of color and the Women's Ministry at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, Radcliffe, Kentucky!
