First, welcome to my ministry site. I am so glad you’re here it celebrates what God is doing in my life.
I am the daughter of Rev. M. R. Lemons, pastor-emeritus (deceased) of Pilgrim Baptist Church and Mary Mattie Lou Clark Lemons (deceased). Two of the most powerful people in ministry I have ever had the pleasure to know. I am honored to be their daughter. I am also the granddaughter of Pastor Dewitt Lemons [father’s father] (deceased) and Pastor Wesley Clark [mother’s father] (deceased). Why would I start this way? I think this is significant because it identifies my heritage. It shows what God has placed in me and the lineage He chose for me to pass through.
My heritage shaped my values, goals and dreams. My passion for God is the foundation for my life and my ministry. I worship Him by using the talents and gifts He gave me to bless others. I have been singing and teaching for as long as I remember. All I have ever wanted to do was be used by God in whatever way He chose. He continues to surprise and bless me in the way that He manifests Himself in my life.
What Makes Me, Me
I started life in a family of modest means. Yet I was blessed with a home filled with passion for God and love for people. I am thankful for the opportunities the Lord has given me to prepare for a career helping people to realize their dreams and to achieve success.
When it comes to ministry, I think I’ve held every role a person could hold in a church; and I have loved every minute of each job assigned to me! Those jobs and experiences were preparation for the teaching ministry that God has now called me to. In all aspects of my life and in all the business that I am involved in, I am dedicated to providing faith-based support to anyone I come in contact with.
When I am not ministering, I am consulting, coaching and counseling. My clients call me Dr. Pam. I offer a unique blend of skills, experiences, and education to help them achieve their personal and business goals. I am the owner and founder of Dr. Pam Russell LLC. and A Godsend Inc., a 501(C)(3) charity. I am an CBCC Certified Christian counselor and a certified life coach. I am an author and a veteran, having been honorably discharged as a Lieutenant from the United States Navy.
I am a high-energy, life-long learner, who continues to grow as a child of the Most High God. I invite you to come and grow with me.
Training, Conferences, Retreats, Speaking
I recognize it is a great undertaking to organize a conference, seminar, workshop or just layout your program for Sunday. One of the important parts, without which the gathering might not meet your goals, is the choice of the speaker. I realize you expect your choice to do more than just re-echo the theme or message of the meeting. He or she is expected to share spiritual insight, create a desire for the Lord, and inspire. My commitment to you it that I will:
- Seek the Lord for an understanding of the purpose of the speaking engagement.
- Submit my education and experience to the Lord on your behalf.
- Share the gospel within the context of your theme.
- Pray for God’s will to be done.

Thinking about Marriage? The story of your relationship as a couple may have begun fairly recently or years ago. Either way, getting married is a whole new beginning for you, your family and others in your life.
Premarital counseling can help couples identify areas likely to cause conflict later on (i.e. finances, child-rearing methods, career goals, family dynamics, etc.) and either work through these issues in the early stages of the relationship, if possible, or develop a plan to address them in the years to come. A study published in the Journal of Family Psychology, which was conducted via random telephone survey, showed couples who had participated in some type of premarital counseling program were 31% less likely to divorce.

If you are interested in having me officiate your wedding ceremony it would be my honor. You are not required to go through premarital counseling with me. However, I will ask you some questions because it is important that you understand me, and I understand you. I want to feel confident about your relationship, your decision and the next steps that you’re taking in your lives. The ceremonies that I perform have Christian foundation and are Bible based. Contact me if you want additional information.
