Founder & President
Sophfronia, a native South Carolinian, accepted Christ in her life at an early age but became fully committed at the age of 23 under the Ministry of Pastor Shelton Murphy – United Student Fellowship (USF) on the campus of North Carolina State University, where she obtained a Masters of Science Degree in Mathematics. It was at that time that she began to develop an intimate relationship with God, a giving heart toward others, and a passion toward small group fellowships.
Seeds that were deposited in her life during her years of tutelage at USF began to spring forth when the first ladies fellowship was held at her home in 1996 in Frederick, MD. From that moment on, she began to develop a heart after God and a desire to minister with compassion and love to women in small group settings. Hence, several years later was the birthing of Women of Purpose Fellowship Ministries (WOPFM) Inc.
Although Sophfronia’s first love is for the Fellowship, she also very active in the Christian Women’s Investment Association of Atlanta in which she co-founded in 2001 and maintains a full-time job as a Software Engineer with an Aerospace company where she has worked for the past 18 years.. In her free-time, she loves to travel, read, spend time with her family and participate in activities to stay physically fit. It is her future desire to stay open to God to be used by Him, as He chooses, for further ministry.
