Rev. Phyllis Cooley-ChisholmRev. Phyllis Cooley-Chisholm is the Senior Associate Minister at the Grant African Methodist Episcopal Church under the pastorate of the Rev. Ellis I. Washington.  She completed her studies at the New England Annual Conference AME Church Ministerial Institute, and was ordained a Local Elder to the Grant AME Church at the 155th Session of the NEAC on April 17, 2006.

Her motto: “When it comes to leadership whether in the home, the church or the workplace is to lead by example . . . never ask or expect anyone to do anything that you as a leader are not willing to do.”

I once read that whatever the case, the key secret for effective Christian (and all areas of) leadership is dependency on GOD . . .   All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

Her motto: “I can do all things thru Him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13). The one thing she wants you to know about her is that she loves the Lord; she is saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Spirit.
