Early in her childhood, Adele Jordan received repeated visions and dreams of ministering to women. Without guidance, she dismissed them and pursued a career in the Sciences even though she was always drawn to books on self-awareness and self-help. She received a Bachelors in Chemistry and Biology and had a successful fifteen year career in the Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical field. During her time in this profession, Adele was exposed to lay counseling at the church she attended in Maryland and began to desire more knowledge in the field. When she moved to Charlotte, NC in 2006, Adele felt drawn to pursue a career in Counseling, to help others grow personally and build healthy marriages. While working full time, she entered the Master of Arts in Christian Counseling program at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Charlotte, from which she graduated in 2016.
With her passion for marriages and personal growth, Adele is excited for the path God will carve out for her to fulfill the visions he revealed to her at an early age.
In ministry, Adele has served as Director of Singles Ministry, Sunday school teacher, greeter, church administrator, and presenter and planner of a Women’s Conference. She has also mentored several young women along the way.
