Tamara accepted the Lord at the young age of eight, after being taught and prayed for by her godparents; their dedication to the Lord and their church proved to be the birthing ground for her relationship with the Lord. She has served the Lord in a number of ministries; President of the Youth Choir, Usher & Missionary Board and the Youth Sunday school director and taught both the young adult & adult Sunday school classes.
In the year 2000, after continually seeking God’s will for her life, she was led by the Holy Spirit to the Mount Calvary Baptist Church. Under the leadership of Pastor B.O.

Calvary she served as an administrative assistant, Sunday school teacher, assistant to the Youth Pastor, director of the mass choir, and steward leader over the hospitality ministry. In 2007 she accepted her call into the preaching ministry, and served as an associate minister, member of the music ministry, assistant instructor for the new member’s ministry, pastoral teaching assistant and Director of Christian Education. While diligently serving at the Mt. Calvary Church she was appointed to serve as the Director of Education for the Quarterly Union Ministry of the Christian Fellowship Baptist Association, in which she held office for six years. In the winter of 2014 The Lord saw fit to transition her into a new season of ministry and moved her membership to the Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor Darron Thompson, where she served as an associate minister and steward leader over the Christian Education Ministry. In 2019, she founded Abundant Hope Ministries where she is the Servant Leader.
