She is profoundly gifted to preach the gospel with boldness and with power. She is a true servant of God that knows He has chosen her for this hour and equipped her with a message to bring restoration, healing and deliverance to His people. A native of Kingstree, South Carolina Pastor McClary received Christ at an early age. She completed her studies and went on to pursue Business Administration, an area in which she excels. Shortly after she met and married the love of her life Retired SMSgt James L. McClary and together they have a blossoming family that she nurtures and cherishes.

Wherever she goes, on the continent of Africa, in Germany or throughout America, Pastor McClary continues to promote goodwill and encourages men and women to overcome their obstacles by using her own testimony, “With God all things are possible.” The bible says in Proverbs that a man with understanding is of an excellent spirit.

As with Queen Esther Pastor McClary has been called for such a time as this; a time when the people of God need a leader who is filled with His Spirit, a leader who is knowledgeable, forthright and committed to excellence in everything she does. And she gives all of the glory to Him.
