ABOUT THE HOST “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33)”. This scripture has proven to be the guiding principal for Lady LaShawn Demery’s spiritual walk. Fueled by her passion for hands-on service, she touches people in a way that leads to the introduction and or restoration back to God.

Lady Demery contributes her spiritual heritage to her grandmother, the late Jimmie L. Davis and Metropolitan Baptist Church, under the leadership of Dr. H. Beecher Hicks. Her spiritual formation began as a child, when she was introduced to the Christian fundamentals which later served as the foundation that drew her to desire a relationship with Jesus Christ and to be of service to others.

As a child, Lady Demery often recalls her grandmother and mother assisting others in need. Memories of servant-hood, love, and compassion profoundly impacted Lady Demery and shaped her views of ministry in the kingdom of God. During her early years of service to God, she was active on the Junior Usher Board, the Youth Choir, and the Sunday School Department. Her speaking skills were honed by participating in various oratorical contests; however, her passion for service was developed by visiting facilities for the elderly community.

Her spiritual lineage continued under the leadership of Apostle James Silver and Bible Way Church of Washington, DC. Throughout her 21-year membership at Bible Way, she held many roles in support of her husband of 22 years, Bishop Ronald Demery, Jr., and his work in ministry. Bishop and Lady Demery, are the parents of three talented children: Aniya, James, and Autumn who are also actively involved in ministry.
