Spirit Rising: Omarosa Becomes An Assistant Pastor
Reality TV star Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth announced in 2009 that she had enrolled in seminary school.
Now, BlackVoices.com can report that the former television “villain” received her preacher’s license on Sunday Feb. 20 and has been named assistant pastor of the Weller Street Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, where she is a member.
“Sunday was a very special day for me in terms of my ministry and spiritual growth,” the one-named TV talent told us exclusively. “God is in control and I’m moving in divine direction!”
The 37-year-old star of ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ has been a member of the K.W. Tulloss-led Weller Street Missionary Omarosa & Michael Clarke Dunca Baptist Church for two years.
“I love my church! It’s a small little church, but God is doing big things,” she shared.
Omarosa recognizes that there will be some skeptics who will never let her live down her bad girl ways. To them she offered: “Like the gospel song says, ‘My Worship is For Real!”
Despite starring in a dating show ‘The Ultimate Merger’ for TV One last year, Omarosa is currently in a relationship with Oscar nominee Michael Clarke Duncan. The two have been an item since spring of 2010.
