Dr. Brenda Jefferson
An international motivational speaker, author, wife and mother, Dr. Brenda Jefferson has served in ministry for over 30 years.
Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Dr. Jefferson has a compelling message of faith, perseverance, and hope, which she uses to encourage and empower audiences around the world.
At the age of 25, she began her full-time ministry by teaching a growing weekly bible study in her home. From these weekly services, she met her husband, Bishop M.B. Jefferson. It was through this marriage that she and Bishop Jefferson founded Deeper Life Christian Church, a recognized and leading worship center in Tampa with numerous community outreach endeavors.
As a passionate worshipper with a heart for biblically based music, Dr. Jefferson is also an accomplished songwriter and the CEO of Scripture Music Group. Dr. Jefferson’s focus lies in creating “scripture songs,” messages founded and guided by biblical principles. In 2007, she released her debut album, Time of Refreshing, which was followed by other successful music releases featuring some of gospel music’s most award-winning artists.
In addition to being the executive producer of four albums, Dr. Jefferson directs the Pure & True Praise Choir, housed in the Deeper Life Christian Church. Under the leadership of Dr. Jefferson, the choir has been featured on projects and been mentored by gospel music greats such as Kurt Carr, V. Michael McKay and Myron Butler.
Preparing for the release of her latest album, INVOCATION, scheduled for release in the summer of 2016, Dr. Jefferson continues her transparent and encouraging message of faith with songs that inspire listeners to ask God for guidance and clarity in every situation.
While Dr. Jefferson travels extensively alongside her husband with a unique ability to make the Word of God engaging and relevant to all audience, reaching the Tampa area and serving at Deeper Life Christian Church remains her primary passion and focus.
