Valorie N. Parker Launches Ministry - Grace, Mercy and Peace

Valorie ParkerBridgeport, Connecticut ---For over a decade, Valorie Parker has been booking internationally renowned motivational speaker, Les Brown. As CEO of Arise by VNP, she has assisted him in getting speaking engagements all over the world. Now, Parker is stepping from behind the scenes, as she picks up the mike herself, and launches an enriching and empowering ministry with her two friends: Sylvia Dunnavant, and Shirley Carter.

"When Les is speaking he says he hears the voices of the people. Well, I don’t hear voices, but I feel the spirits of the people whenever I am in a room. Over the years of traveling with Les, I have been so overwhelmed with the internal crying out of so many people, because there are so many broken people out there just waiting to be spiritually healed, "says Parker, who after 19 years of being in a domestic abusive marriage definitely understands being spiritually broken.

Valorie ParkerParker, Dunnavant and Carter will be launching their empowering ministry called Grace, Mercy and Peace on Wednesday, November 5th at New Vision International Ministries, in Bridgeport, Connecticut were Pastor Derek L. Calhoun is the Senior Pastor. The event will be a part of Pastor Calhoun’s Ninth Year Church Anniversary Celebration.

"Women today are by default going through a plethora of known and hidden issues created by the dysfunctional family system and the lack of male or fatherly influence in our communities. In this myriad of wounded frontline soldiers emerges a "D.E.N." of women with the fighting spirit of Deborah; the courage of Esther and the wisdom and stamina of Naomi. New Vision International Ministries welcomes, Grace, Mercy and Peace to our platform," says Pastor Calhoun.Valorie Parker

There is no doubt that these three women who have developed a close friendship over the years are excited about taking some of their personal life testimonies to help women across the country walk in victory.

Valorie Parker"The three of us have been through so much. Valorie has survived domestic abuse, Shirley is a two time breast cancer survivor, and I have just simply learned how to survive and celebrate life in the midst of tragedy. We decided to come together, so that we can help all women walk in the victory that God has given us," says Dunnavant.

"Grace, Mercy and Peace will speak at 7:00 PM, on November 5th at New Vision International Ministries, 130 Gregory Street, Bridgeport, Connecticut. For further information please visit the New Vision International Ministries Website: www.nvim.org.
