Evangelist Monya Parker-Grant is a native of Columbia, South Carolina, a faithful member of Ecclesia Church of God in Christ under the Spiritual leadership of Pastor Luther H. Holmes, Jr. and Lady Valerie Holmes. Called by God to win souls, Monya accepted her call to the Ministry in 1998. Never despising humble beginnings, Monya started out in ministry as a faithful servant and continues doing whatever is needed to support the local body of Christ. She's been found faithful over a few things and over the years she has been given the responsibilities of Praise and Worship Leader, Women's Choir Director, Minister of Music and more. Monya, a humble servant, is committed to God, for it is truly in Him that she lives and moves and has her very existence... Inspired by the whole counsel of God, Monya ministers and exhorts others to, above all else, 'SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ALL OTHER THINGS WILL BE ADDED UNTO YOU'! If there were a way to perform a spiritual ultrasound of Monya, there you would see the very image of God's Heart, His Word written on the Heart of a humble Servant. Thus everything that she says and does is motivated and inspired by the Word of God. In Early Fall of 2007, Monya was led to a time of consecration, prayer and fasting; If one were to put an all points bulletin out, you would have found her at her church on the altar, praying and laying prostrate before the Lord, worshiping Him, adoring him, listening to Him, which led her to a place where God has called her to yet another level of Ministry. So it is, in her obedience to God that she is giving birth to an anointed CD project, entitled 'Arise' delivered directly from the throne room of God. God has ordained songs that Minister the Kingdom of God which is Joy, Peace and Righteousness in the Holy Ghost! As she is obedient to do what God has anointed and appointed her to do; it is her most sincere and purest desire that people everywhere see God and not Monya, for she is truly AN ANOINTED VESSEL READY TO BE USED OF GOD.
