*Congratulations - Reverend Dr. Ammie L. Davis for the Successful Defense of Ph.D. Research


On Friday, August 6, 2021, Pastor Ammie L. Davis successfully defended her Ph.D. research at Regent University in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis on Ecclesial Leadership. 
Title: Understanding the Self-Efficacy and Call of Jarena Lee: A Narrative Case Study   
Research Question: How does Self-Efficacy research inform the recognition and response to the call of African American female ecclesial leaders as evident in the life and ministry of Jarena Lee?
The research focus unearthed Jarena Lee's self-efficacy in her religious experience despite being rejected.  Jarena Lee’s strong conviction in her ability to achieve demonstrates how self-efficacy influenced how she recognized and responded to her call to preach in a society that was hostile to her gender and race.   
Pastor Ammie L. Davis is the senior pastor at Zion Chapel AME Church, 
Hattiesburg, Mississippi and State Director for Child Evangelism Fellowship of Mississippi, Inc.
Pastor Ammie L. Davis earned a B.S. in Business Administration & Human Resource Management from Southern New Hampshire University, M.A. in Management & Leadership from Webster University, M.B.A. from Webster University, MDIV with a concentration in Psychology of Religion & Pastoral Care and Counseling from Turner Theological Seminary at the Interdenominational Theology Center.

Congratulatory responses can be emailed to:, Reverend Dr. Ammie L. Davis.

*Master Jacob Cuthbert, III Certified by the Programs of Religious Activities (P.R.A.Y.)  as a Four-Star Award Recipient

Programs of Religious Activities with Youth, also known as P.R.A.Y. Programs, is a Bible-based religious emblems program for Protestant and Independent Christian churches designed to bring youth and families to Christ. The P.R.A.Y. program [God & Me (Grades 2-3), God & Family (Grades 4-6), God & Church (Grades 6-8), and God & Life (Grades 9-12)] has impacted the lives of thousands of youths nationwide. The Jesus & Me (K-1) curriculum has recently been added to the series. The P.R.A.Y. Four Star Award is a very prestigious one. Candidates must start in the first, second, or third grade, and as the name implies, they must earn all four P.R.A.Y. awards. Less than 1% of the P.R.A.Y. recipients in any year receive this prestigious award.

Master Jacob Cuthbert,  has been certified by P.R.A.Y. for this special commendation. The Four-Star pin features four gold stars on a red, yellow, blue, and green background. The four colors represent the four levels in the series, but the stars are reminiscent of Matthew 5:16: Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Jacob is a member of Saint Mark AME Church, Orlando, where the Reverend Terence R. Gray, I, serves as the pastor. Saint Mark celebrates Jacob's accomplishments because they are for the glory of God. It is our prayer that he will continue to live his life in such a way that others will see Christ in him and give God the glory. If your church is interested in completing one or all of the P.R.A.Y. Program series, please make contact P.R.A.Y. at

Jacob is the son of the Reverend Dr. Missiouri McPhee, Connectional Secretary for the Association of African Methodist Episcopal Scouts (AAMES), Secretary for the 11th Episcopal District Board of Christian Education, Dean of the Board of Examiners for the Central Annual Conference, and Minister of Worship at Saint Mark, Orlando.
