Chasty Daniels Godwyn
Married to Lamarr Godwyn, with 2 sons, Chaston and Landon. Chasty was reared in a Christian home with an extended God-fearing and loving family.
She currently serves as an Elder and Youth Director at Restoration Community Church in Garner North Carolina, under the leadership of Pastors James and Ursula Rowland. She is a graduate of Saint Augustine’s College in Raleigh NC, with a degree in Mass Communications and a minor in Journalism. She also holds a Masters of Arts degree in Youth Pastoral and Family Counseling Services from Grand Canyon University.
In addition to ministry, Chasty works in clinical research, where she serves on oncology and Internal medicine clinical trials. As Youth Director of TAG (The Anointed Generation) she manages a team of twelve teachers who serve students ranging from infants to high-school. Under her leadership, several ministries have developed and grown tremendously. Today, the TAG ministry consists of: A tutoring program, Boys Club, and “Sticks and Stones” ministry. The tutoring program helps students excel academically as their self-worth increases. The boys club assists in nurturing and guiding African-American males to ensure academic, social and spiritual success. The “Sticks and Stones” ministry is where she advocates for students in the school system protecting them against bullying.
She has created a platform for youth pastors and leaders called the Empact Youth Coalition. Occasionally, Youth pastors and leaders in Central North Carolina will come together to sessions provided by Chasty, on how to impact the hearts of children in their churches and community. Children are the future leaders in our community, so God has led her to create a Parent University, which helps parents understand how to raise their children holistically and academically in our generation of digital natives.
She is thankful to God for deliverance! Deliverance from a sheltered past of bondage, she confidently walks in the freedom of God. One of her favorite passages is John 8:36: So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed! She loves to encourage children and their families to be free so that they can be positioned to receive the promises of God!
I know how to motivate, inspire and stir the soul of my audiences. I can help people to be inspired.
