Princess Bola’s spiritual journey began at eighteen with the sudden death of her mother. Immediately following her salvation in 1988 and a dramatic encounter on May 19, 1990, she actively pursued a deep understanding of life and truth through personal and church-led Bible study. Her passion to discover and apply spiritual principles to everyday life took Bola on a journey through the various ranks of lay leadership, culminating in her ordination and first pastorate in 1996.
A flaming evangelist and serial pioneer, Bola, is the founder and co-founder of several churches and para-church ministries in the New England area. Her first non-profit organization, Watered Garden Ministries, was founded in 2004, to empower women through a variety of community based mentoring, educational and benevolence programs. Watered Garden Ministries programs included visits to women in shelters and a clothing boutique that provided clothing and other support to women and families in need. Within two years, this program led to the founding of two divisions and reached more than 1,500 women.
A dynamic preacher, powerful prayer warrior and a gifted bible teacher, Bola speaks across cultural and denominational lines.
