16: Coffee with Devita Parnell


Devita3Would you be surprised to know how many female Baptist preachers there are? One? More than one? This leader in the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, Devita Parnell, celebrates (with me) that women have demonstrated again and again how extremely well they can lead a congregation, interpret scripture, preach, teach and simply lead in ministries of every kind – as executive directors, pastors, and more.

Devita4Devita has been one of the remarkable members of the national staff of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF). Her focus is with the “young Baptist ecosystem” and her talents flow far beyond even that massive scope.

There are no chance moments through which God cannot speak. –¬†Frederick Buechner
