The Sixth Annual Ladies in Fellowship Prayer Breakfast promises to offer an even greater blessing than before! Here are just some of the incredible speakers and presenters for this year's gathering.

  • Ilesha "Coco" Graham

    Speaker, Writer & Leadership Consultant

    Having journeyed from defeat into destiny, Ilesha’s greatest joy is encouraging women to maintain their hope through the hard times so that they can flourish in their God-given purpose and potential.

    Her energetic speaking style and unique ability to engage and motivate her audience through the use of powerful storytelling, interspersed with the uncompromising truth of God’s word, has made her a popular and sought after speaker for conferences, retreats, teas and workshops around the globe.

    Ilesha is the founder of CoCoSpeaks, a faith-based personal and professional development company focused on empowering and equipping emerging women leaders through workshops, speaking and consulting. She has also served as the California State Chaplain for Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc for the past eight years. Ilesha has been featured on CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX40 News, Yahoo News, Huffington Post, TVOne, Mashable and multiple other media outlets.

  • Veronica Bethel Parker

    A native of Vallejo, Veronica came to know Christ at an early age. However, she soon discovered that, knowing Christ and sincerely living for Him and fulfilling his call on her life were completely different thing. It was only after going through life's fires, tornadoes and earthquakes, with God’s Grace and support of a loving community of believers, she became an overcomer and doesn’t smell like smoke! 

    A life-long Bible student and former seminarian, Veronica shares her personal testimonies through teaching and service by means of small group bible studies, children’s ministry, prayer ministry, and a monthly sunrise breakfast to the homeless. 

    Reflective by nature, her note-to-self is simply, "Are you going to serve God completely or continue to be a Christ- believer but a slave to the world?"  The joy is choosing rightly. When we RISE UP for Christ He will ARISE in you.

  • Heather Lewis

    Born and raised in Sacramento, Heather (Meeks) Lewis is married and the proud mother of four beautiful children. A daughter and granddaughter of pastors, she grew naturally and spiritually in the Church of God in Christ. She accepted the Lord as Savior and Holy Spirit-filled at a young age.

    Heather attends Back to the Bible Church of God In Christ, where her father is the pastor and she has been a member for over 37 years. She has served in various ministries, including as youth leader, Sunday School and young girls teacher, praise and worship Leader, choir member and director. As Ms. Lewis reflects, "For many years I knew that God had His hand on my life and I knew He had a special calling on my life."

    Heather Lewis is a much sought-after singer and speaker, and she is in the process of obtaining her license as Missionary in the Church of God In Christ. And, while others have called her  evangelist, prophetess and missionary, Heather simply considers herself someone who loves to praise and worship the name of Jesus.!
