The Vision­ary


Rev. Valerie S. Pear­son is a preacher, teacher, author and founder of A Remark­able Woman Min­istry. Her life has been a jour­ney guided by the Lord; and as she has trav­eled through time she has learned many valu­able lessons and gained wis­dom that she has pack­aged together to share with other women through A Remark­able Woman Min­istry. Through her min­istry and book, A Remark­able Woman, Dis­cov­er­ing the Authen­tic You!, God has allowed many women to be trans­formed, and to know who they are in Christ, while lov­ing their true authenticity.

In Feb­ru­ary 2011, God led Rev. Pear­son to take a tremen­dous leap of faith in pur­su­ing her min­istry full-​time. She formed a non­profit entity, The Cen­ter for Remark­able Women, Inc., with a mis­sion to empower women and girls with the life tools nec­es­sary to live enriched and abun­dant lives. This is a life dream for Rev. Pear­son that she pur­sues with zeal and enthusiasm.

Prior to answer­ing the call to pur­sue her min­istry full-​time, Rev. Pear­son served for twelve years as the Chief of Min­istry Staff at the New Psalmist Bap­tist Church in Bal­ti­more, Mary­land under the tute­lage of Bishop Wal­ter S. Thomas, Sr., where she man­aged a staff of nine full time ministers/​lay per­sons and more than 80 min­istries. She has a wealth of knowl­edge in church man­age­ment and min­istry devel­op­ment. Rev. Pear­son is a sought after con­fer­ence speaker, who con­ducts lead­er­ship train­ing for church staff, asso­ciate min­is­ters, and min­istry lead­ers. She also presents work­shops and sem­i­nars to women.
