Co-Pastor Vonda Taplin

Co-Pastor Vonda Taplin is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana. She enjoys being the wife of 23 years to Pastor Anthony W. Taplin Sr, and the mother of their two sons Anthony Jr. and Ashton. Vonda has the same passion and purpose of her husband, and loves assisting him with his God given vision for Come Into The Light Ministries.

 

She is an anointed and chosen woman of God.  Her faith in Jesus Christ was ignited at an early age. She has always felt the compassion of Jesus Christ in spite of her many challenges; she knew deep in her heart that God loved her.

 

In May 1995 God instantly set Vonda free from the bondage of fear, low self-esteem, negative thoughts and the lie the enemy had told her as it related to her value as a girl. Her concern and compassion for hurting women & girls and the challenges that pursue them is the dynamics of her mission called H.A.G.A.R Mentoring Ministry (Helping Adolescent Girls Receive Restoration).  Her greatest desire is to open a home for teenage girls who have fallen prey to Satan lies; Vonda knows what it is to live with, YET OVERCOME; the deception of the enemy.

 

She is also the founder of W.I.C. Ministry (Women In Christ).  Quarterly meetings are held to enlighten, encourage and equip women with spiritual and practical knowledge to live an exciting Christian lifestyle. She believes as the scripture say’s “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.  II Corinthians 5:17
