She was honored to be May 2011’s featured “Preaching Woman of the Month” on www.preachingwoman.com , an international media platform for women in ministry.
In 2004, Lady McNair’s strength became greater as she joined forces with her husband, Pastor P. Michael McNair. In 2007, they divinely answered the call of pastoralship to Emmanuel Baptist Church (Thomasville, NC). Together their hands have been busy building and strengthening the Kingdom for 21st century ministry. She is the leader of the “Valuable Woman” Women’s Ministry at Emmanuel Baptist Church, which ministers to several women in the local ministry as well as the community with women’s fellowships, Bible studies, teen empowerment events, Annual Women’s Conferences and Women’s Retreats.
Lady McNair is a Master’s of Ministry in Christian Leadership candidate at Laurel University (High Point, NC). She is the Founder of “Forefront Ladies”, a network and mentorship dedicated to raising the standard for women in ministry. She is also the author of 2 books, “The Guide to Greatness for Women in Ministry”, focused on developing and encouraging female leaders and aspiring leaders in the Body of Christ and “21 Days of Powerful Prayers for Women” a prayer journal to ignite consistent devotional prayer time amongst Christian women. “Lady Mac” as she is affectionately called by many, has a hands-on approach to ministry, serving God’s people right where they are and pushing them to where they are destined to be. She is boldly fulfilling the mandate on her life to be an empowering and uncompromising voice in the Body of Christ.
Lady Byrdzetta H. Knotts is born to the late G.L. Byrdsell and Julia Hamilton in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Lady Knotts co-labors in the ministry with her husband, Pastor Anthony Q. Knotts. Along with being Pastor Knotts’ biggest supporter, she serves as a lecturer, intercessor, counselor, and psalmist. Her genuine and loving spirit draws people, including women and men from all walks of life.
Being raised by a God-fearing mother, she was very active in the Baptist church. While under the leadership of Pastor P.A. Samuels and First Lady Gloria Samuels, she was being groomed for the work to which God ultimately called her. “First,” as she is affectionately called by her sons and daughters in ministry, attended North Davidson High School and Forsyth Technical Community College.
In May of 1997, she was joined in Holy Matrimony to Pastor Anthony Q. Knotts. In 1998, she worked together with Pastor Knotts in founding what is now The Embassy Church Int’l. She preached her initial sermon in December of 2000, thereby accepting her evangelistic and prophetic call. Lady Knotts’ life experiences and desire for excellence in ministry have helped her to impact numerous ministries at The Embassy Church Int’l. She started and now leads the Women of Worship (W.O.W.) Ministry that focuses on building up women of God on a holistic dimension. She also serves as Elder of Music & Arts Ministries.
Pastor and Lady Knotts have three beautiful children: Teland, Jalen, and Destiny. Her devotion to her family and passion for excellence in ministry, marriage, education, and parenting exemplify the character of a true Virtuous Woman.
Dr. Wanda A. Davis is a nationally acclaimed Minister, Teacher, Prophet, Life Coach and Best-selling author. She is the Founder and President of Wanda A. Davis Ministries and Calling First Ladies Inc. based out of Southern California. She travels extensively ministering in some of the most well-respected pulpits nationally and internationally.
She is well known for her vivacious and bright personality. Dr. Wanda is anointed to teach, preach, and articulate prophetic words into the lives of people to help propel them into their destiny and purpose. She integrates the Word of God with her own experiences and has developed a common sense approach for addressing life’s challenges.
Using her powerful speaking and writing abilities, Dr. Wanda has authored the following books; “Stood in the Flames”, “Celebrate Change”, “Sex Traps”, “Behind The Power” and “Even With My Issues”.
