Bishop Sadie M. Smith, Overseas Bishop
Bishop Sadie M. Smith is the Pastor and founder of Shabach International Ministries in Landstuhl, Germany. She also serves as the Overseas Bishop of the Holy Deliverance Church of God, International.
Bishop Smith was called to the ministry in September 1975. She is anointed, appointed and equipped by God to fulfill the Great Commission. By the leading of the Holy Spirit, Bishop Smith has rolled up her sleeves to go into areas others would not go. By standing on the Word of God and heeding to the call of God, Bishop Smith lives to reach the unsaved, the downtrodden and the broken-hearted and to see them changed in Jesus Christ. By being a willing vessel and responding in the affirmative, God has proved time and time again that if one would say “YES”, God will produce “The Harvest.”
And if I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. John 12:32
Bishop Smith travels extensively throughout Germany, Europe and the world preaching and teaching the Gospel. She hosts and conducts revivals, conferences, and workshops. Her motto scripture is,
“I must work the work of Him who has sent me while it is day, for the night comes when no man can work” John 9:4
Although Bishop Smith’s gifts and callings are many, her mandate from God is to build “Kingdom Disciples” by teaching the people of God how to effectively apply the Word of God through biblical principles. The result has been the salvation and restoration of families, all to the glory of God. Her passion for souls and to fulfill God’s mission has reached as far out as Africa, where Shabach International Ministries, Kenya was birthed.
Bishop Smith is a native of Durham, North Carolina and has been married to Mr. Anthony Smith for over 40 years. They are blessed to have three beautiful children: Donald, Sandrea and Sharon, seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Bishop Smith currently attends Liberty University in pursuit of her Bachelor of Science Degree in Religion with a Minor in Biblical Studies.
