Among her many spiritual accomplishments. God approved her in the office of Bishop. Her love for God, The Kingdom and people is recognized as she oversees churches in America as well as Jamaica. Her acts have displayed God’s love by orchestrating an AIDS Walk to honor God, her late husband of 22 years and to society; to embrace those affected by the disease. Her deceased husband passed from HIV/AIDS. God kept her from contracting the disease as a testimony of His love and faithfulness to her.
Her sharpness in the Prophetic is bold, accurate and life changing. This Prophetic call brings transformation, deliverance, healing and restoration to the hearers. This same prophetic boldness is used in her outreach ministry to enter homes, beauty salons, strip clubs, women’s shelters and the marketplace to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

God is a God of restoration. Although Apostle Charlotte accepted the strong possibility that she would never marry again, a fateful encounter with a stranger on an airplane blossomed into a beautiful friendship and love story. In May 2008, God united Apostle Charlotte and Jay Jeffreys.
They currently minister together in their home in the state of Georgia. They travel and serve at their other churches to teach and encourage growth in the Body of Christ.
