Bishop Corletta Vaughn

One of the world’s most prominent women of faith, Bishop Corletta Vaughn shattered the stained glass ceiling of the church world when she became a female preacher against her Baptist church’s strict rules and has been dedicated to the cloth for over 40 years. She is currently the Senior Pastor of The Holy Ghost Cathedral and Chief Apostle to Go Tell It Evangelistic Ministry Worldwide. Her network provides oversight to 70 churches nationally and more than 1300 ministries globally.

While Bishop Vaughn has broken gender barriers with her fiery approach to the Bible, establishing a work/life balance has always been a struggle. Married to Dr. Gilbert Vaughn, president of the Hertford NC NAACP, they have four grown children and five grandchildren. A true power couple and constantly on the go, they face challenges with their bi-coastal living arrangement and must find a way to cherish their marriage more.
