Eva W. Summers, Associate Minister at Williams Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in ministry.
Ms. Summers recalls she had always been a very spiritual person, leading her to take on the role as the personal secretary of the minister at Shiloh African Methodist Episcopal Church. Members of the church encouraged her to join them in the ministry, but she thought that it was not what God called her to do. However, on June 5, 1995, Ms. Summers vividly remembers when God spoke to her, telling her to do his work and teach for him. From this epiphany, she followed His guidance and went on to join Williams Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church as an associate minister in 2008. She continues to serve in the role today and Ms. Summers had also been the church’s secretary from 2017 to 2019, where she oversaw taking calls, preparing for Sunday worship, making day reports, and organizing the office and materials.
In her position for 13 years, Ms. Summers is responsible for worship planning and congregational pastoral care ministry. As the recipient of an Unsung Hero Recognition Award, she attributes her success to her faith and trust in God, as she has always put God first in her life. To remain abreast of the field, she currently maintains membership with the United Teaching Profession, National Education Association, South Carolina Education Association and Connectional State and Local Women in Ministry. In five years’ time, she aims to have a 501 c3 foundation set up, which will allow her to fulfill her personal mission to reach and help more people of all different backgrounds. Ms. Summers earned a bachelor’s degree from South Carolina State University in 1970 and a Master of Education from the University of South Carolina in 1985.
