Elder Doris Kirby, Pastor
Power Tower Full Gospel Ministries
I am a native of Georgia and the daughter of John and Callie Colbert, a mother of two beautiful daughters, Dorea and Rachel, and their husbands, Celtric and Shanquelos. To their unions, the prides of my life were born—my two wonderful grandsons Darnell and Raphael. I have two sisters and five brothers—two of whom have joined our Lord as with my husband.
The earlier part of my vocational career was that of a secretary, but my major profession is that of a certified property manager for over twenty years.
In response to my call, I graduated from Beulah Heights Bible College in May 1995, where I received a bachelor’s degree, received an evangelist teaching certificate, and was privileged to make the National Dean’s List and get Who’s Who nationwide recognition.
I have received various social, academic, and scholastic recognitions along the way, but the greatest was when I answered the call of the Lord to serve as his minister to his people. I am proud to be able to say that a sense of community has always been a natural part of my makeup. I have served as a volunteer in the following capacities and areas:
A traditional nursing home for six years
The Changed Women and Watchmen and Warriors Ministry
As assistant director of the Prep Program for Ministerial Alliance
Paul S. Morton Scholarship and Administrative Assistance for Ministerial Alliance
As president of the community of the Neighbors Interested in Progress (NIP)
I have worked in many roles within the church—not the least of which was to preach within the prison ministry and to minister to the shut-ins of various nursing homes.
In order to answer the ultimate call of God, I obtained my official license to preach in 2005. Besides the people, I have been privileged to love and serve in the casual marketplace. Currently I pastor the Power Tower Full Gospel Ministries. My ministry of preaching and deliverance has been with Women of Divine Purpose, where I minister to victims of Alzheimer’s disease. I have been privileged to serve in this capacity for six years. As a result of this connection, some of the experiences I have enjoyed as a minister to Africa afforded me with the privilege to apply my preaching and teaching in Atlanta at the Korean First Presbyterian Church in Tucker, Georgia.
This alliance allowed me to join Changing a Generation (CAG) in February 2006. I served the CAG in these capacities:
Co-director of the Prep Preaching Program
Board member of Changed Women
Administrate assistant for Ministerial Alliance and Watchman and Warrior
Volunteer of the PSM Scholarship program
Citing personal accolades is difficult because all that I am and ever hope to be is the result of God’s Love for me. Jesus came as a Savior in the capacity of a Servant. He says that I serve HIM when I serve the least of them. Therefore, service is what I do; servant is who I am as I point others to HIM.
