Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook is a Senior Pastor at the Bronx Christian Fellowship, also known as Believers’ Christian Fellowship, which she founded in 1996 after serving as the pastor at the Mariners’ Temple Baptist Church in downtown Manhattan for 13 years and growing their membership exponentially. A powerful preacher, Dr. Johnson Cook was recently described in The New York Times as “Billy Graham and Oprah rolled into one.”

In 1983, she was elected the first Black woman to be a senior pastor in the 200-year history of American Baptist Churches of the USA.

In 1996, Pastor Cook was the only faith leader appointed to the President’s Initiative on Race (a 7 member Advisory panel to President William J. Clinton).

In 2002, Johnson Cook became the first woman to be elected president of the 10,000 member Hampton (Virginia) University Ministers’ Conference, which represents all the historically African-American denominations. Her long lists of other “firsts” includes: the first woman appointed chaplain of the New York City Police Department; the first woman from the Bronx and the first woman Baptist Minister to receive a White House Fellowship.

Featured by Ebony Magazine in 1997 as one of the nation’s top 15 women in ministry, Johnson Cook is the author of eight successful books: Too Blessed to Be Stressed (Nelson: 1998), A New Dating Attitude – Getting Ready For The Mate God Has For You (Zondervan: 2000) and The Sister’s Rules for Ministry (Word: 2003). Her latest, Live Like You’re Blessed (Doubleday: 2006), was featured on Good Morning America, the Tavis Smiley show and is becoming a Bestseller.

A faculty member and graduate of Harvard University she also received a Doctor of Ministry degree from United Theological Seminary (Dayton, OH. ’91); a Master of Divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary and a Master of Arts from Columbia University.

Reverend Dr. Suzan D. Johnson Cook has toured nationally with Bishop T. D. Jakes and the God’s Leading Ladies Conference around the nation. She has been a television producer and on-air host for all of the major networks and was the co-officiant for the Homegoing Service of Civil Rights Leader, Coretta Scott King.

Dr. Cook is married to Ronald Cook and they reside in New York City with their two sons.

Reverend Dr. Suzan D. Johnson Cook is a woman of promise, passion, diligence and determination. When leaders need guidance, they go to her. She is a woman of destiny, purpose and history. Her mentoring and leadership skills have now charged her to form the Women In Ministry International Summit, which supports and advocates for women church leaders from around the world.
