Apostle Alfonzo Smith


Apostle Alfonzo Smith is a called-out, ordained Apostle and Prophet to the nations. He travels the U.S. and abroad with his wife, Prophetess Shavarn Smith, conducting workshops, conferences, and prophetic services in the areas of spiritual warfare, deliverance, marriage enrichment, and the five-fold ministry. Together with his wife, this power-packed couple releases deliverance to the multitudes. Apostle Smith is the author of six books including his latest, "50 Days to a Spiritual Makeover." He is the Senior Pastor of Redeemed Christian Fellowship Ministries International in Detroit, Michigan and the Presiding Prelate of The Apostolic and Prophetic Network of Churches International which provides an apostolic covering to Pastors and churches throughout the United States and Internationally. Apostle Smith works very closely with ministers in terms of mentoring and most of all as a spiritual father to those who have submitted themselves to him as spiritual sons. Apostle Smith also has many spiritual daughters who have identified his anointing as a father, and they too have submitted themselves as spiritual daughters. Because Apostle Smith is such an accurate prophet, he is sought after to release prophetic words in many prophetic gatherings and places in which the prophetic office is now being accepted. Apostle Smith received his formal education from Eastern Michigan University, in Ypsilanti, Michigan. He received his BA degree in Social Work, BA degree in Criminal Justice, MA degree in Guidance and Counseling, and MA degree in Education.

Her children are: Pastor Emmanuel and his wife Lady Latisha (children Emmanuel Jr., Analiese, Eleazar and Grace); Hosanna, LaShella, her husband Warren (children Alexander, Asa and Olive); Dewayne, Alfonzo Jr. and Alexis.

Prophetess Shavarn Smith


Prophetess Shavarn Smith serves as Senior Pastor of Redeemed Christian Fellowship Ministries International, alongside her husband and founder of Redeemed, Apostle Alfonzo Smith. She is an anointed psalmist, prophetic intercessor, a teacher of the word of God and a woman of virtue. Prophetess Smith operates in a strong and anointed deliverance ministry. She has done extensive teaching on spiritual warfare by expounding on Matthew 16:19, "And I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatsoever you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven." Her vision is to help equip the saints using the knowledge of how God entrusted us with the keys (power, authority) to bind the hands of the enemy so that God's will comes to pass in the earth. Her vision is to see souls saved, people healed and delivered. Prophetess Smith has a strong counseling and teaching ministry to young girls, women and the Body of Christ as a whole. She spearheads Redeemed Christian Fellowship Ministries Women’s Breakout sessions on Wednesdays from 8-9pm. Topics of discussion include singleness, having a successful marriage, parenting skills, time management and other topics.

In 2017 Prophetess Smith launched Girls ReVamped which is a mentoring program for teen girls ages 12-19: Girls ReVamped is an outreach program which meets twice a month to discuss issues that teen girls are facing on a daily basis. Discussions include dating, positive self-esteem, life tragedies: rape and molestation, identity crisis, substance abuse, promiscuity and the list goes on.

Prophetess Smith released her first book entitled, "31 Days to a Complete Make Over for Women: Mind, Body and Spirit," and will soon release “So You Want to Be A First Lady,” “50 Questions to Ask Before You Say I Do” and a book on the topic of “Total Beauty from the Inside Out.”
