Lakishia Banister is a servant at heart, which she considers to be the most important part of her faith journey. After giving her life to Christ at the age of 20, Lakishia has continued to serve with her pastors and now serves as the Assistant Pastor of Foundation of Faith Worship Center. She believes whole-heartedly in helping her Pastors fulfill their vision while she continues to build her own vision. Lakishia’s no nonsense approach to the Holy Scriptures, allows her to be transparent and helpful to others she ministers to. After facing so many challenges herself, she uses those difficult moments that she has now overcome to teach others that they don’t have to stay the way they are. Things can and will get better.
Lakishia is the founder of Created2Win, LLC and Lakishia Banister Ministries and uses these platforms to empower others through ministry, workshops, group Christian Coaching and a host of other things. Lakishia Banister preaches the word with power and authority to raise people from poverty to prosperity, instill hope and faith, break curses and speak blessings, and to prophesy.
After all the challenges she has faced in life, from getting pregnant in high school, being on welfare (and then removing herself from the system) to having her children’s father incarcerated, she still beat the odds by going back to college and getting an Associates, Bachelors and Masters degree in under five years.
She has been featured on various platforms such as Love, Hope and Faith (a television broadcast), WBOC News Network, Showcase of Christian Authors, Delta Sigma Theta Local Author Showcase and other events including ministerial appointments.
She has written and published three books Overcome the Obstacle: Pursue the Dream, The Secrets They Kept: A Novel and Created to Win. She is an educator and has taught English for a few years at the high school level while impacting the lives of teenagers within the school system. Lakishia continues to serve in her local church and they support her and push her to fulfill the mandate God has given her.
