Dr. Leonette Collins

Founding Apostle & Senior Pastor

Apostle Leonette C. Davis-Collins, affectionately known by family and friends as “Pebbles” and to her church family as “Apostle” or “A-Lady”, is a one of a kind, revelation-driven leader who’s known for her ability to share powerful, illuminating principles from the Word of God with simplicity and clarity. Being reared in the church, Apostle started her ministry by singing God’s praises at the age of three. At the tender age of 10, she accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. She has continued to share her melodious voice with the nation. At present, she is still ministering in song and has been preaching the Word of God since the age of 23.

Apostle is the proud wife of Anel A. Collins, who is her very best friend and the love of her life. She is the proud mother of one son, LeAndre’ and an ecstatic grandmother to two grandsons, Leo and Eli. She has extended family, her church family, and friends with whom she enjoys spending quality time.

Apostle was ordained an Elder on November 28th, 2004. In October of 2008, she was installed as Associate Pastor at Praise to the King Ministries, Inc. In January of 2009, she was publicly installed, by Apostolic Overseer Lannice L. Collins of Ayden, NC, as a co-founder and pastor of Incorruptible Seed Worship Center (ISWC).

She has always had a heart for people and loves to share the practical principles of the Word to promote victorious lives for others and to awaken them to the truths of who they are because of the indwelling power of God. She, along with her team, often hits the streets to share love, prayer, encouragement, resources and the Word with the community. She plans to establish God’s intent in the earth which is simply this: that none should perish but ALL come to repentance upon receiving the truth of His Word. Apostle embraced the Apostolic Mantle upon her life and was affirmed an Apostle in the Lord’s Church in April of 2011 by Apostle Corey Thompson.

In 2018, she accepted the request to serve as the Executive Pastor at New Life Church & Community Center until she was urged by GOD to plant The Grow Place at the close of that same year. She, along with the covenant partners are striving to cause major impact in communities around the world through effective witnessing and providing “safe soil” composed of Prayer and the Word (Acts 6:4). Apostle does not hesitate to wage war against the powers of darkness and travail for the lives of others. She is further commissioned by God to plant the seed of the Word in the hearts of mankind. She firmly believes that since the seed is the Word (Luke 8:11) and the Word of God is incorruptible and can NEVER be destroyed (I Peter 1:22-23), those of us who have a sincere love for the truth of God’s Word can NEVER be defeated!

 

In March 2021, Apostle was duly consecrated as a Regional Bishop for the Northeast Region and reaffirmed as an Apostle under the Apostolic Oversight of Apostle Lannice Collins of Kingdom Covenant International Fellowship of Churches (KCI) in Greenville, NC. In March 2023, Apostle was appointed as the 2nd Presiding Prelate of KCI. She is committed to her role as a Kingdom, authoritative general and serious about the The Most High God's intent being progressed in the earth, as demonstrated by her continued and tenacious academic background. Apostle is a graduate of both Andersonville Theological University and New Calvary School of Ministry where she attained her Associate's  and Bachelor's degrees in Biblical Studies. In October 2021, she became a Board Certified Christian Counselor from the National Association of Christian Counselors and later started her own counseling firm, Collins Christian Counseling. In December 2021, she received a dual Master of Arts degree and Ph.D. in Clinical Christian Counseling from the Christian Bible Institute & Seminary. She also holds a certification in crisis intervention & suicide prevention. Apostle released her freshman book entitled "At the Altar & the Couch" which focuses on bridging the gap between faith and mental health. She held the position of #1 seller on Amazon for 2 weeks. Truly the Lord has blessed her to awaken truths and destroy stigmas associated with mental health in the lives of believers. She is currently pursuing a second Master's Degree at Amberton University in Human Relations & Business. In June 2023, Apostle became an Adjunct Professor at Christian Bible Institute & Seminary.
