CDMA Board Members

By touching hearts, proclaiming Christ, and empowering through
grace, we become one in unity with Christ.

George & Judith Matthews

George and Judith Matthews serve as pastors of New Life Interfaith Ministries, Inc. (NLIM), in Bessemer, Alabama, and Calvary Resurrection Christian Church (CRCC), in Center Point, Alabama. They are the parents of two sons, Oscar and George III, and one daughter, Brianna. NLIM and CRCC are strong, New Testament churches of spirit-filled believers who are committed to prayer, personal ministry, evangelism, and discipleship. It is their belief that God has called for a church to minister His Word beyond the traditionally-understood realm of local ministry. The pastors believe that their work is a kingdom assignment of assembling believers from various components of the body of Christ into one effective voice to communicate God’s message to the masses.

Deborah H. Powe

Deborah Powe was ordained in ministry in 1988, after being trained and serving faithfully at World Changers Church International under the leadership of Pastors Creflo and Taffi Dollar. In 1991, Pastor Deborah and the late Pastor Greg Powe founded Revealing Truth Ministries in Tampa, FL. She has been committed to serving God’s people and teaching Biblical truths locally, nationally and internationally. In 2017, Pastor Deborah became overseer of Revealing Truth Ministries. She is devoted to sharing God’s intense love with people, equipping women to walk in their God-given authority and revealing God’s undeserved, unearned grace to believers. She has authored several books and audio-recorded confessions. Pastor Deborah’s first ministry has always been family, and she joyfully serves with her four children; Gregory Jr., Christopher, Chrystle and Bryan.

Tony and Cynthia Brazelton

Tony and Cynthia Brazelton serve as Pastors and Apostles of Victory Christian Ministries International (VCMI). They are parents of four wonderful children; Tony Jr., Antoinette, Jordan and Aaron. VCMI is a growing, thriving, non-denominational, multi-racial, Bible believing, Bible teaching church. God has also called Apostles Tony and Cynthia to help other Pastors and church leaders maximize the call of God on their lives. They accomplish this through Tony and Cynthia Brazelton Ministries Sons and Daughters (TCBMSD); a fellowship of over 50 ministries. The vision God has imparted into their hearts is to produce understanding in the hearts of God’s people, and to bring them to a place where they are not just shouting, singing, reading, and hearing about the power of God; but, that they are fully manifesting it in their everyday lives.

Rick & Barbara Layton

Drs. Rick V. and Barbara Layton pastor Refreshing Point Ministries, a non-denominational, Christ-centered ministry in Shreveport, Louisiana. In 1986, they moved their family to Shreveport as directed by God in an open vision that they would someday raise up a church in the south for God’s glory. They now pastor over 2,000 members, along with providing a pastoral covering for many other churches.  Dr. Rick and Dr. Barbara are yielded and anointed vessels that minister the Word of God. Through faith in His Word, their God-given vision is “to cause a God-consciousness, an awareness of God that cannot be denied, in their city, the nation, and around the world; thereby changing the hearts and minds of everyone they come in contact with.” Drs. Rick and Barbara have seven children.


Bringing ministries together.​

The Creflo Dollar Ministerial Association is an organization established by Dr. Creflo Dollar to bring ministers together in a covenant relationship to serve one another and maximize the visions of the individual ministries. “Covenant affiliation” is a phrase that accurately describes the heartbeat of CDMA. No minister or organization affiliated with CDMA is without a spiritual “covering.” No member is alone or without support or guidance. As far as Dr. Dollar is concerned, “Covenant is simply about helping people. It is about exchanging strengths for weaknesses, until those weaknesses have been completely eliminated.”
