……is a native of Aliquippa, PA but currently resides in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.  Nephateria is a minister, counselor, writer and encourager.  She is a member of Zion Church, a non-denominational ministry with multiple campuses in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area where Pastor Keith Battle is the Senior Pastor. Nephateria is also a member of REAL Women, an organization that creates safe spaces for women to do REAL work on themselves; grow their confidence in who they are and what they’re created to do; and become catalysts of positive change in their lives and the lives of those around them.  Within REAL Women, Nephateria helps facilitate monthly sister circles.

Nephateria was saved at a very young age and is thankful that God has turned her messes into ministry to advance His Kingdom.  Although she has accomplished many things in her life, she understands that without God she is nothing.  She has been called to preach the good news and also challenge others to live an abundant life in Christ.  She is humbled, but also encouraged by one of her favorite scriptures, 1 John 4:9-10, where God’s love is revealed among us through this message – “God sent His only begotten Son so that we might live through Him.  In this love, not that we loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.” 

Nephateria is passionate about living life to the fullest and being healthy (mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually).  She is committed to helping others do the same. Most importantly, she is the mother of two beautiful young ladies and grandmother of two precious grandchildren.
