PREACHER OF DETROIT REALITY STAR TO VISIT THE BIBLE BELT, PREACHING THE GOSPEL IN THE TARHEEL STATE

LOS ANGELES – Reality star and faith leader Bishop Dr. Corletta Vaughn will be preaching the gospel and bringing her “Women Who Soar” Empowerment Lecture Series to the Tarheel state, beginning June 22 through 25, 2016. She’s scheduled to make several appearances with stops in Durham, Greensboro, and Burlington, as well as booksignings at nearby Barnes & Noble bookstores. In a historic political season, her lecture will address the topic of “A Woman in the White House Will Change the World.”

 

A fixture in the Detroit community, Bishop Dr. Vaughn became nationally known as a cast member on Oxygen’s popular reality spin-off, “Preachers of Detroit.” The reality show gives viewers a glimpse into the lives of prominent preachers from the Detroit area. She’s also one of the most prominent women of faith, serving as the senior pastor of the Holy Ghost Cathedral, and the presiding bishop of Go Tell It Evangelistic Ministry Worldwide. She serves more than 70 churches across the country, and more than 1,300 ministries globally.

 

In a big show of #girlpower, Bishop Dr. Vaughn is making headlines for her support of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. #ImWithHer In fact, during a campaign stop in Detroit, Clinton spoke to the congregation at the Holy Ghost Cathedral where Bishop Dr. Vaughn presides.

 

She is a strong advocate for women’s rights, gender equality, and women’s empowerment.

“It’s been said that you’re the luckiest woman in the world if you’re born in the United States. Still, in this country, women face the glass ceiling, wage inequality, sexual harassment and abuse,” said Bishop Dr. Vaughn. Every year, her foundation -- the Corletta J. Vaughn Foundation -- supports girls and their caregivers, through specialized literacy and mentoring programs, called the Pink Academy. It is geared to take any woman from "Nowhere to Everywhere." Through her foundation, Bishop Dr. Vaughn has successfully rescued several girls from sex trafficking.

 

She has also functioned as a spiritual mother to thousands of women, counseling them on a variety of issues, including self-esteem, abuse, abandonment, relationships and broken promises. Understanding the importance of father figures in a young girl’s life, she penned the 232-page, self-help book, “Teach Your Daughters to Fly,” (Next Century Publishing; on sale May 19, 2015; ISBN-10:162903830X; ISBN-13: 978-1629038308; $18.95 US). It gives fathers and single mothers the right tools to raise their daughters and prepare them for greatness.  The book offers readers the tools needed to prevent “daddy issues” for daughters, which can lead to “father hunger,” and ultimately affect self-esteem and self-worth well into womanhood.

ABOUT DR. BISHOP CORLETTA VAUGHN

A trailblazer and pioneer, she was called to the ministry in 1974, and has been opening doors for women in leadership positions in the ministry every since.  She is Detroit’s first African-American female bishop, and has been serving as a woman of the cloth for more than 40 years. She’s a strong advocate for women’s rights, gender equality, and women’s empowerment.

 

Bishop Dr. Vaughn shattered the stained-glass ceiling of the church world when she became a female preacher against her Baptist church’s strict rules. Against the odds, she was consecrated as a bishop in 1995, and today she’s the senior pastor of the Holy Ghost Cathedral in Detroit, Michigan, and the presiding bishop of Go Tell It Evangelistic Ministry Worldwide. She serves more than 70 churches across the country, and more than 1,300 ministries globally.

 

Bishop Dr. Vaughn is a cast member on Oxygen’s popular reality spin-off, “Preachers of Detroit,” which premiered on February 15, 2015, giving viewers a glimpse into the lives of prominent preachers from the Detroit area. The show spotlights the faith leaders’ place of worship as well as their home life with family and friends. The show also addresses the controversial issue of females holding leadership positions in the church.

 

A life coach and motivational speaker, Bishop Dr. Vaughn is a graduate of William Tyndale Bible College (BRE) with a bachelor’s in Pastoral Studies and a master’s degree from Oral Roberts University in Post-Secondary Education Administration. She also received an honorary doctorate in Practical Theology from BAI University (Benin City Nigeria, formerly Christ for the Nations). She’s currently working on a doctorate’s degree in Psychology (Gender Diversity) at North Central University in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

 

She is the mother of two beautiful daughters – that is, Shannon and Apprille – and the spiritual mother to thousands globally in the ministry and business.
