Pamela grew up in the beautiful mountains of Virginia. The early years of her childhood were stable, but her father’s alcoholism took a toll on the family and her relationship with God. Even though she attended church as a young child, Pamela did not become a Christ-follower until she was twenty-six.After graduating from Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee, Pamela began a career in college admissions. She found recruiting students was something she did well. When given an opportunity to interview for a job with a Christian college, she faked her way through the “religious stuff” and accepted a position as their Assistant Director of Admissions. She considered it to be a strategic career move, but God had a much greater purpose in mind. The move not only impacted her career, it changed her life forever. Christian friends and co-workers began to have an effect on Pamela’s life. She noticed there was something different about them. As they lived out their relationship with Christ before her eyes, God began softening her heart. A year later, God brought Pamela to the realization she lacked hope and purpose in her life. With this realization came an invitation to receive Christ, which she accepted on September 5, 1988.

The transformation in Pamela’s life was evident immediately. As she grew in her relationship with Jesus, she began teaching a college Sunday school class. When her pastor and his wife began mentoring Pamela, it became evident that God had a calling on her life. Two years later, she moved to Fort Worth, Texas to pursue a Master of Divinity at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. While pursuing her degree, she served on staff at Glenview Baptist Church in Singles Ministry.

Pamela found herself at a crossroads after graduation. Although she enjoyed college and singles ministry, she did not believe that was God’s direction for her in ministry. Then in April 1998, God called her to serve as the Women’s Ministry Director at Red Bank Baptist Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Women’s Ministry was the perfect fit for Pamela. It allowed her to use her gifts and experiences to disciple women. After serving three years in Chattanooga, she accepted a position on staff at Christ Community Church in St. Charles, Illinois where she served five years as the Women’s Ministries Pastor.

In the summer of 2006, she resigned to begin Reflecting Grace Ministries, a teaching ministry for women. Relocating to Nashville, Tennessee, she began speaking at Women’s retreats and conferences. Even as her ministry grew, she realized something was missing. Through prayer, she discerned the missing thing was having an opportunity to make an on-going investment in a community of women and their families. This led Pamela to begin searching for a staff position. In August 2008, God led Pamela to Fellowship Bible Church to serve as the Women’s Pastor.
