Prophetess Shavarn Smith
Prophetess Shavarn Smith serves as 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 by 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.Prophetess Smith founded the Women of Prayer, Praise and Power (WOP3) Women's Ministry in 2009 which was an extension of her purity class and women's image courses. WOP3 is designed to educate, empower, encourage and unite women in the Body of Christ. WOP3 meetings feature topics including self-esteem, beauty and image, purpose and how to live in excellence in all facets of your life. Prophetess Smith is now in the process of completing several books including, "So You Want to Be a Fist Lady" and “The Complete Guide to Beauty” which are scheduled to be released soon. Prophetess Smith is the proud mother of six anointed children who all work in the ministry.
