Pastor Yvonne Brooks Wins Award

Yvonne Brooks, a pastor at the New Jerusalem Community Church in Birmingham alongside her husband, Bishop Melvin Brooks, was the recipient of the Power of a Woman (POA) Award, sponsored by Keep The Faith, for her ministerial work.

POA is the brainchild of Fredi ‘Kruga’ Nwaka, who launched the awards in 2023 in honour of his late mother, Angela Nwaka.

Pastor Brooks was ‘tickled’ at winning the award, and during her acceptance speech reminded the 400+ audience that they were born to achieve. She said:

I want us all to realise we were born with purpose, on purpose, and for purpose. I don’t believe anyone is excess to requirements. We were birthed in the mind of God, and He released us into earth to fulfil the purpose that is in our DNA and all over our lives.
