Dionne J. Edmonds is a wife, mother, daughter, sister & lover of God who is passionate about His work and His word. A graduate of Duke Divinity School, Dionne holds a Masters of Divinity and loves nothing more than serving women through the teaching of God’s word. She is passionate about making disciples for Jesus Christ and believes in the importance of empowering women to be all that God has created them to be. She considers it a privilege to serve women across denominational backgrounds, but is particularly thankful for the opportunity to serve the women of Macedonia. She is committed to helping them to know the truths of scripture intellectually and by encouraging them to experience these truths practically through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Dionne has had the opportunity to teach women in many ministry settings across the city, the country and even the world. She has authored a book entitled, Calling Up Your Boaz: How to Date in A Way That Honors God and has served God through missions work in South Africa and Mozambique.
She is extremely thankful for these ministry opportunities, but considers her most important ministry to be that of a wife and mother. When she is not serving women she is supporting her husband and caring for their daughter, Zoë G. Edmonds.
Dionne completed her undergraduate studies at Howard University. She is an ordained minister and enjoys reading (whenever she’s not chasing behind their busy toddler), writing, working out and spending time with her family and friends. Dionne was born in Monrovia, Liberia to Joseph and Linda Davies and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She is the oldest of two and has a host of foster brothers and sisters that her parents have raised over the years.
Dionne lives in Pittsburgh, PA with her husband and best friend, Brian J. Edmonds, Senior Pastor of Macedonia Church of Pittsburgh. Through their marriage she has the privilege of experiencing the love of Christ, as her husband seeks to love her as Christ loved the church.
