Reverend Dr. Claudette Anderson Copeland…
…is simply, a woman of strength and dignity. When she speaks, her words are wise and
kindness is the rule for everything she says.
She is persuaded…fully!
As a teen, Claudette was doomed to be swallowed up in the draw and dysfunction of the
streets, but she encountered the saving power of Jesus Christ. She was groomed in the
Church of God in Christ, in Buffalo, New York.
She is prepared.
She has studied to show herself approved; educated from Connecticut to Oxford – BA to
Post Doctorate. Claudette is a University of Connecticut alumni, received her Masters of
Divinity at the Interdenominational Theological Center, Atlanta, Georgia in (Pastoral Care
and Counseling), and she earned the Doctorate of Ministry from United Theological
Seminary, Dayton, Ohio (Pastoral Counseling), as well as a Post-Doctoral Certificate
(Homiletics) at Oxford University, U.K.
She is proven.
Reverend Copeland lives and ministers by the power of the Holy Spirit! She has served in
a variety of ministry settings for over 40 years. She is the founder of Claudette Copeland
Ministries (Destiny Ministries of San Antonio, Texas), a national empowerment group for
women; the Hospital Chaplaincy (A.C.P.E.); and the mission field (in Haiti, South Africa,
Ghana, Liberia and Kenya). She also served as a visiting professor and mentor for
Doctoral Studies at United Seminary.
She was a commissioned officer in the U.S. Air Force Chaplaincy. She and her husband
were the first African-American clergy couple in the history of the U.S. Military Chaplaincy,
where they served with distinction before returning to the civilian pastorate.
She is a published author, a powerful preacher, a servant, and a lover of God’s people.
She is partnered.
She is a contented and wonderfully cared for wife, married to the Bishop David Michael
Copeland since the age of 21. Together they have built a life and a great ministry. She
serves with him as the Co-Founder and Executive Pastor of the New Creation Christian
Fellowship Church just outside San Antonio, Texas.
…and Dr. Copeland is a conduit for the Power of God!
God has uniquely equipped this internationally acclaimed evangelist with a prophetic
declaration of the Cross. Whether wielding a sword or a scalpel, she will scripturally invite
you into the healing, delivering, transforming regions of God's space. You will surely be
better because she came your way!
