When Pastor/Prophetess Audrey Berden ministers to a congregation, they witness a spectacular and dynamic outpouring of the Holy Spirit through her delivery. Pastor/Prophetess Audrey Berden's energetic labor of the Gospel expels love, joy, fervor, excitement and radiance, which is highlighted with splashes of spontaneous and delightful humor. Prophetess Berden has pioneered spiritual charisma in several traditional churches because she dared to stand firm on her convictions and allow the Holy Spirit to have full workmanship in her ministry. Born on April 26, 1963 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Reverend S. John Hawkins and Evangelist Yvonne C. Hawkins, Pastor/Prophetess Berden's decision to live for Christ was at the tender age of 12. "From that time to the present, I have certainly endeavored to be faithful and obedient to the Holy vision and the call by fire of the Holy Spirit," she says. By the year 2000, "the fire" inside Pastor Berden was burning intensively, through which she heard the Holy Spirit commanding her to start a prayer and Bible meeting specifically for women in her home. Obedient to the voice, Pastor Berden did so immediately, although she had lost both her parents the same year. She recalled an adage that "God often uses such afflictions as fertile opportunities to heal, renew and rise up." According to Prophetess Berden, out of those ashes came beauty. Those group meetings led to the beginning of a fiery and radical ministry for Christ, known as Virtue And Praise Ministries where Pastor Berden serves as the senior pastor. Since that time, Pastor Berden's ministry has succored many souls. In 2002, she received a letter from the U.S. President George W. Bush in praise of her prophetic words concerning his re-election. Pastor/Prophetess Berden's affiliations have included Board Membership for Miracle Faith Word Center under her late pastor and aunt, Dr. Hortense Trotter. She is also a board member for Basket's by Immanuel, a support ministry for cancer patients. She is the recipient of the 2004 and 2005 Joy Award and has appeared on numerous radio and television programs including 1690 AM, WHTJ and Religion in the News on WISH-TV, Indianapolis, a CBS affiliate and local Trinity Broadcast Network, Greenwood. Additionally, Pastor Berden previously co-hosted a radio program under the ministries name on AM1310, The Light, Indianapolis, Indiana, with her sister, Pastor/Prophetess Gertrude E. Hawkins. She is currently the host of "A Word in Due Season," a prophetic television program that airs weekly on the LeSEA Broadcasting Network, WHMB TV 40, Indianapolis, Indiana. Prophetess Berden is a devoted mother to her four beautiful and gifted children: Tiara, Malachi, Charity and Noah.
