Pastor Lois Blackwell

Pastor Lois Blackwell was both born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.  As the daughter of  a pastor, her earliest recollections are of a life that was rooted deeply in the church and the community.  Upon high school graduation, she entered Homer G. Phillips Nursing School and graduated as an R.N.  Her studies also took her to Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, where she graduated as a Certified Nurse Anesthetist.  She practiced as a Staff C.R.N.A. for twenty years in the state of Ohio.

Pastor Lois and her husband, Bishop Luther J. Blackwell, Jr., are the pastors and founders of Mega Church in Cleveland, Ohio.  She is involved with the counseling ministry and she currently oversees the Women’s Ministry Division at this great church.

A matter that is dear to Pastor Lois Blackwell’s heart is that of women’s issues.  She has taught many classes and seminars on such issues as hormones, menopause, sexual abuse, sexually transmitted diseases, mid-life changes, etc.  Many women around the nation have been blessed by her candor as such conferences as The National Women’s Conference and the International Congress of Local Churches.  She has appeared on Good Morning America, discussing the topic of menopause.  She is able to both use her educational background and her wealth of Christian wisdom to address topics that are not usually tackled within the church arena.

Pastor Lois and her husband, Bishop Luther Blackwell, reside in the Greater Cleveland area with their family – Stacy Michelle, Alana Denise and husband, Louie Hendon, Lucien Christopher and wife, Nafeesa, and Meaghan Christina, who stand as pillars of support to the ministry.  They also have six beautiful grandchildren, McKenna Christine, Noah Christopher James and Jonah Christopher Scott, born to Lucien and Nafeesa, and Kennedy Raine, Raegan Joi and Jaxon Myles Dwight, born to Alana and Louie.
