Dr. Mary Smith 


To go through life without goals is to live in vain. Small goals lead to larger ones, and large goals lead to success. Hard work and dedication help me achieve short-term goals, and each achievement is a stepping stone to my final destination. If I plant a seed today, there will be a tree with strong roots tomorrow; this tree will be able to stand the storms of life.

Pastor Lorenzo G. Johnson Jr. (Excel Church) and Tyrinetta, her children, will arise up and call her blessed because she is blessed to be their mother. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana as the fourth of Robert and Lillie Mae Smith's 10 children, Evangelist Mary Smith began planting seeds early in her life. At age 11, she started to understand what it means to be a Christian.

Evangelist Mary Smith was baptized on April 23, 1967 at St. Marks Missionary Baptist Church where Reverend James Author Alexander was pastor. Between the ages of 11 and 16, she was a member of the church cleaning committee, president of choir 2, a Sunday school teacher, and the Sunday school superintendent.

She earned her bachelor's degree in religious education at Christian Bible College in Kenner, Louisiana - Dr. A.P. Clay, President. Later on, she moved her membership to St. Stephen MB Church where Pastor Rev. Norman Francis licensed her as a missionary-evangelist.

After relocating to Miami, Florida, Evangelist Mary Smith set out to further her development in ministry. She took advantage of the training offered at New Birth Baptist Church where Bishop Victor T. Curry was the pastor. Determined to be the bearer of good fruit, she dedicated her time to the school of ministry, Bible institute, discipleship training, leadership training, and prison ministry.

This experience opened her eyes to a new level of ministry where there is always room fro growth. She was then appointed as Pastor of Foreign Mission at New Birth Baptist Church.

Keeping that in mind, she also received training at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church. Pastor Willie C. Barnes ecnouraged, supported, and charged her as Paul encouraged Timothy to make full proof of her ministry, doing the work of an evangelist. Eventually, she was appointment as the Director of Foreign Mission.

Evangelist Mary Smith relocated again to New Orleans, Louisiana and attended Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church. Rev. Dr. Mosses S. Gordon was the pastor and the president of Cornerstone Missionary Baptist General Association, where she was part of the foreign mission.

She then earned a master's degree in theology at A.P. Clay Bible College in Kenner, Louisiana - Dr. Bryon Clay and President. Afterwards, she moved to Covington, Georgia and became the director of foreign mission at Springfield Baptist Church where Pastor Eric Lee was the pastor. She was determined to go to the nations with the Gospel of Jesus.

Evangelist Mary Smith attended the Berean Christian Church where she was the first director of global mission for 4 years and is the current advisor. She also hosted several internation teams and trained over 100 missionaries for the field. She was able to bring short-term mission teams from Berean Christian Church to South Africa, Haiti, Uganda, Africa, Swaziland, Ghana, West Africa, Montego Bay, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, and London.

Moreover, Evangelist Mary Smith coordinated the first mission conference at Berean Christian Church. She implemented the sponsorship for missionaries in Brazil, India, Liberia, West Africa, Haiti, South Africa, Uganda, Africa, Swaziland, and Malaysia. There were educational scholarships for over 2,000 students in Africa.

In addition, Evangelist Mary Smith attended Beulah Heights Bible College where she complete 50 hours of the most mission boot camp for Global Mission. She is now an adviser and mission consultant for various churches and organizations throughout the nation and

across the globe.

As the founder and senior pastor of Shaking The Nations World Prayer Center and Shaking The Nations Worldwide Intercessors Network, she has launched several missions. These include Operation M.O.M. - Mothers of Mercy USA and Operation M.O.M. - Mothers of the Motherland in Liberia, West Africa, and Port Au Prince Haiti.

While Shaking the Nations Operation STEM is in order in South Africa and Beijing, China, Evangelist Mary Smith has formed partnerships in Ghana, West Africa to rise up an ARK OF RESTORATION AND COMPASSIONS. She has also internationally networked with Central America and traveled several times to the Caribbean, Africa, and Haiti to lead several teams of people for foreign mission work.

Over the years, Evangelist Mary Smith has set up an international mission network with other missionaries in several countries. Many doors are open to her all over the continent of Africa and in Central America, Haiti, and the Caribbean. Her ordained season has come to full term. Still, she thrives to continually plant seeds of hope, faith, and love around the world.
