Dr. Lisa M. Weah is truly a young woman full of purpose, passion and power! As Senior Pastor of the New Bethlehem Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland, she has embraced becoming not only the third Pastor in the churchâ€™s history, but also its first female pastor.
With a team of growing leaders and volunteers who love discipleship, Dr. Weah launched a second service location in the DMV area to spread the gospel. A heart for ministry and her community, she partnered with Baltimore Rising and Unite Here Local 7, which, has allowed over 150 people to get jobs at Camden Yards Baseball Park and hotels in Maryland and Delaware.
Desiring to ensure her congregation and community are both spiritually and mentally healthy, she has launched several initiatives, including: the NBBC Empowerment Institute; the Dream Life Center CDC; the Full House Family Conference Series; and a satellite location of the Renaissance Christian Counseling Center, which was founded at her home church, Morning Star Baptist Church, by Bishop Dwayne C. and Dr. Carla J. Debnam.
Dr. Weah serves as the Overseer of Auxiliary Bishops and General Overseers for Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship. She is an Executive Council member of the Kingdom Association of Covenant Pastors, and an appointee to the Governor's 529 Board.
A published author and artist, she released her Maximize Moments Devotional, Vol. 1 and Breathe Again EP in 2015, and her Maximize Moments Devotional, Vol. 2 in December of 2017.
Continually seeking new ways to spread the gospel, she currently does a weekly "Maximize Moment with Dr. Lisa Weah" on WEAA 88.9FM's Gospel Grace Morning Show, and "Getcha Life" segments on the station's nightly programming.
Dr. Weah is an active member of the Epsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Maryland at College Park, and Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Howard University. She is a proud mother of three, whose life mission is to empower persons to live a victorious Christian life.
