JADA SUMTER, FOUNDER/CEO
Prophetess Jada M. Sumter is the proud mother of three wonderful children Jorden, Jazmyne, and Derek.
She is currently employed at Grace Medical Group of Columbia, SC as a NRCMA as well as a HIV/AIDS Case Manager. She is a graduate from the University of Phoenix with a degree in Business Management with a concentration of Healthcare Management. She is just as passionate about her natural work as she is about her Spiritual work.
Although Prophetess Sumter has served in ministry for numerous years, she was like many who continually ran from the call until one day she found herself at her lowest possible point and she knew she could not run any longer. So, she accepted the call into ministry. But September 25, 2015 is a day she will never forget. This was the day that she gave her Initial Sermon, “God Gave the Vision to the Visionary” with a subtopic, “It’s a Process.” An Apostle ordained her Prophetess on September 25, 2016. Prophetess Sumter is currently under the Leadership of Pastor and First Lady Virgil Briggs (Triumph the Church and Kingdom of God in Christ).
Prophetess Sumter’s two favorite scriptures are Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it” and Proverbs 3:5, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Her favorite quotes include: A Good Leader doesn’t Lead by Pessimism and Cynicism. A Good Leader Leads by Optimism, Enthusiasm and Energy.
She currently serves as a member of the NAACP and National Association of Christian Therapists. She is currently taking several courses such as Soul Care Foundations, Marriage/Family Counseling, Spiritual Formation, Ministry Leadership, Christian Apologetics, and Systematic Theology ALL for the Building of the Kingdom one Must partake in the Knowledge in order to Pass it on.
She is a hardworking servant leader who believes that everyone is needed to help build the kingdom of God. She actively participates in intercessory prayer, altar work, prophetic laying of hands, and armor bearing.
If you were to ask Prophetess Sumter, “Who are you called to serve?” She would boldly respond, “God has called me to the radical women in the church. The ones with tattoos and the piercing! I’m one of the new Breeds, the one that will minister in Stilettos, Timberlands, a Snap Back or Chuck Taylors.”
