A Bit About Me
A Woman of Faith
Under the guidance of her pastor, Apostle Louise Baker, Cassandra accepted the call into the Gospel ministry, and preached her initial sermon in January 2012.
Since that initial sermon, Cassandra has gotten busy in the kingdom by serving her local church, Temple of Prayer, Praise and Deliverance, formerly as a teen Sunday school teacher, and outreach ministry leader. Cassandra has had the great pleasure to not only minister in North Carolina, but in Virginia and Florida as well.
Cassandra is a graduate of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T SU) with a B.S.W. Bachelor of Social Work and a Master of Science degree in Human Services from Capella University. In her professional work, she is a Program Consultant with the State of North Carolina providing technical assistance to Ryan White funded agencies.
She is a strong advocate for African American Women. She is a dynamic workshop facilitator specializing with self worth, self esteem and empowerment for women.
In 2012, Cassandra was called to start the Salt, Light & Witnesses blog- which is updated weekly and designed to strengthen, uplift and encourage other Believers. That blog has been rebirthed on this website under " blog".
In 2013, Cassandra completed a Master of Arts in Christian Ministry from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.
In 2014, Cassandra answered the call to begin a radio ministry – Fully Persuaded About Faith – in part because she knows first hand what it took for her to trust, lean and depend on our unchanging and always faith God. (www.blogtalkradio.com/cassdurham)
Tired of going into book store after book store and unable to find the types of books that spoke directly to her painful life challenges, Cassandra became the author of two devotional books: Fully Persuaded: 30 Days of Encouragement in Times of Trouble and Fully Constrained: What Faith Can Do.
Cassandra has also completed the novel Wrath, the first book in the Seven Deadly Sins Series *Books are available on Amazon and this website.
