Pastor Evita L. Smith, M.Div, MSOL
Pastor, Preacher, Teacher, Writer, Life Coach, and Businesswoman are just a few of the hats Pastor Evita L. Smith wears. Those who know her best know she is dedicated, determined and driven. Her mission in life and in ministry is three things –"Souls saved, lives transformed and the people of God walking in their purpose". She works with great determination whether in the office, the community or the sanctuary, to help people discover their identity, enhance their gifts and fulfill the purpose of God for their lives.
A prolific and prophetic voice, Pastor Smith's passion for God and God's word is evident in her preaching ministry. Whether for five or five thousand, she stands boldly under the anointing of God to share the word of God across denominations, cultures and traditions. As one who operates in the apostolic office, Pastor Smith is called to establish order and develop other leaders within and for the Kingdom of God. In 2010, stepping out in faith with a vision from God, Pastor Smith founded Kingdom Seekers Community Church, where she serves as Senior Pastor. Kingdom Seekers is located in Stockbridge, GA where the mission is "Transforming Lives through the Truth of God's Word".
As one who believes God's people are given dominion not only in the religious arena, Pastor Smith also is an influencer in the business arena. Her corporate career spans approximately 15 years in corporate accounting and finance. Also, with an entrepreneurial spirit, she seeks to represent God also in the marketplace. She is the President and CEO of Exceptional Living Empowerment Coaching and Training, Inc (E.L.E.C.T.), a life and leadership coaching practice dedicated to helping women in the areas of self-esteem and self-worth issues, divorce recovery, and purpose discovery.
Another passion of Pastor Smith's is education. She has a Bachelor of Science in Business Information Systems from DeVry University. She is a 2009 graduate of Candler School of Theology at Emory University with a Master of Divinity, where she presently sits on the advisory board for the Baptist Studies Department. In 2014 she received a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership from Brenau University. Additionally in 2014 she also received her certification in Life and Leadership Coaching from Dream Releasers Coaching under the tutelage of Drs. Samuel and Brenda Chand.
Regardless of the accomplishments and accolades received, Pastor Smith is fueled daily by the graduation prayer of a professor at Candler School of Theology, Bishop Woodie White: "May the places you've been be better because you were there".
