Pastor Phyllis Scott, founder and senior pastor of Tree of Life Empowerment Ministries church, has been elected to become the first woman pastor to hold the position of president of the Pastors of Oakland Association.
Pastor Scott brings 17 years of pastoral leadership experience in the city of Oakland.
She said, “given the times that we live in now where we are being challenged daily by the COVID–19 pandemic, racism, poverty, homelessness, closed schools, closed houses of worship and racially motivated violence, we need a vision for the Pastors of Oakland that unites us in bringing about the Shalom of the city through our interfaith solidarity and community awareness.”
Scott told the Post that the association is a body of Pastors that reflect the city’s diverse cultures. “We are an association made up of men, women, Black, Brown and Asian brothers and sisters, all with one thing in common. We know that Jesus Christ is LORD.”
