Currently, Sis. Stewart is in the process of founding the “Flame Ministries” (First Ladies Acquiring Ministry Excellence) for Pastor’s and Former Pastor’s Wives along with women in ministry. This ministry is birthed out her passion to help Women in general who are in Ministry, but especially for those who are or have been married to Pastors. She understands the unique role of a Pastor’s Wife and that there is no one else like her or who holds the position which she has been called within any church. She desires to minister to them, giving them a place of safety and refuge, providing them with spiritual insight, encouragement and an outlet to receive spiritual empowerment for their God-given position in Christ. Her goal is for this ministry to empower Pastor’s Wives giving them hope, healing and a voice, so that they can positively impact their churches, ministries, cities, states and most importantly, the Kingdom of God!
As the wise and hard-working woman of God that she is, she continues to learn all that the Lord has to offer and has done so by increasing her Bible knowledge through correspondence courses at Aenon Bible College and by attending Central Baptist College. It is her plans to complete her degree soon!
Because God has abundantly blessed Sis Stewart, it is her desire to be a Blessing to all she comes in contact with, especially by teaching God’s Word.
