Preaching the Gospel; Praying the Word; Prophesying life; Playing the Music is what Prophetess Annie Byrd is known for. Since the age of 5 years old, Prophetess Byrd has been given the gift of music. She has played for many churches in the surrounding areas of Tallahassee, Florida. Along with her musical talent, she has been blessed to be taught by one of the greatest musician in the gospel industry, Pastor Ben Tankard, Nashville, Tennessee.
As she began to explore more into the gospel world, she received Jesus Christ as her Savior on May 13, 1982. She then joined her family church, Greater Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, Monticello, Florida under the leadership of the now-late Reverend C. C. Curry. Since then, Prophetess Byrd has been given opportunities to not only be a musician at her home church, but her fore-parents church located in Monticello, Florida, along with many gospel groups and recording artists.
While venturing as a musician, she knew that God had another purpose for her life. She was called into the ministry January 1991. Since she has received this calling upon her life, she has blessed many people with the words that God placed upon the fruit of her lips. The profound and ordained Word has not only been preached by her, but prophesied through the gift of prophecy with an embrace of her smile. From exercising these gifts, the Lord favored this motto upon her ministry “Experiencing the Beauty of Holiness”, which launched her out into many opportunities to host conferences, Soldiers of Worship, Naomi-Ruth Conference, Kingdom Building Conference; seminars as well as be minister to the body of Christ.
As God has blessed her ministry, she has been favored to be with the pastoral guidance of Reverend Dr. Harvey W. Virgil. Reverend Dr. Virgil along with his brother, Reverend Dr. B. J. Virgil trained her to move forward into her next destination in ministry. On September 25, 2005 she was ordained and given the mantle to be an Associate Pastor. She is currently holding that position along with Minister of Music at the Vision of Hope Missionary Baptist Church Independent, located in Thomasville, Georgia. As the anointing of God has favored her highly in the ministry, she has been given the opportunity to trained and prepared ministers for ordination under the direction of the renowned author and pastor, Reverend Dr. B. J. Virgil. Alongside with Reverend Dr. B. J. Virgil, she has authored a series that has been a blessing to pastors, seminary instructors and variety of church district associations, "The Characteristics of a Preacher".
Not only this, but she has been favored to be an integral vessel with other ministries in the surrounding area. Lives have been changed; souls have been delivered; captives have been set free; and bondages have been broken. Prophetess Byrd has been given golden moments to spread the gospel not only in the surrounding area, but on church websites such as the “Kingdom Kronicle”, sharing weekly devotions as requested, and more.
With all of this in mind, Prophetess Byrd is the proud and renowned mother to an anointed and precious prince, Earl James Ray, III and the daughter of the now-late Dennis and Francis Seabrooks Byrd.
