She also holds a Bachelor of Theology and Religious Education from the American Bible College and is an advanced graduate student of the Manhattan Bible Institute in New York City.
She has preached the gospel of God for more than 25 years. Inasmuch as she has dedicated herself to the Greater Faith Temple Church Family, the Lord has enlarged her territory to include another ministry (personal ministry) “Fresh Winds”. Her Fresh Winds radio broadcast was used to minister hope to the hopeless, faith to the faithless and the love of Jesus Christ to the loveless. The evidence of the power of God through this ministry was manifested through testimonies at the end of each broadcast.
She is multi-talented and she has been favored with a tremendous music ministry that includes: singing, training choirs, choir directing and playing various instruments.
Pastor White-Haynes is extremely interested in uniting the Kingdom and by the leading of the Holy Spirit, she was instructed to conduct a Prayer Day. This unified body of believers, consisted of different denominations, worshipping collectively. Baptists, Catholics, Latin Americans and Pentecostals all came together in a day of prayer and praise and all to the Glory of God. Her tireless efforts to assist new ministries, young ministries and all ministries whenever she’s called upon to minister , teach and encourage cannot go without being mentioned. Her credentials and gifts coupled with her anointing have made Pastor White Haynes a formidable vessel fit for the Master’s use.
Pastor White-Haynes is a leader who watches for the souls of her sheep and loves unconditionally. She lives the life she preaches about and leads by example with integrity.
She is married to a loving supportive husband, James Haynes, a retired New York City Police
She is a pastor in love with God with a compassion for people and has led her congregation into greater heights, deeper depths and Greater Faith in God.
