With the Holy Spirit as Her Guide

Penelope Harris spends her life equipping other women — both young and old — to use their God-given talents for His glory.

“God has always set me apart to take up leadership roles, for which I never feel fully equipped. However, I have learned that once I depend on the Holy Spirit, He guides and helps. I wish to equip women to embrace the fact that in Christ there is no gender barrier. They can all achieve great things for God. Women are great influencers of moral values and can actively help to end Gospel poverty.”

Her husband is the senior pastor of their church in Guyana, and as the assistant pastor, Penelope works with the Sunday School department and women’s ministries. As a nutritionist and educator, she provides training and consultancy in the world of culinary arts and other hospitality avenues. She mentors and counsels young women, as well.

Penelope’s goal is to equip women to embrace the fact that, in Christ, there is no gender barrier.

Whether working on a church project or at the Ministers’ Wives and Widows Association, of which she is an executive member and one of the local chapter presidents, Penelope feels that “every space I enter becomes sacred for me. I strive to operate with integrity and under the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit. I want to share His love and the Good News with everyone He places in my path because Gospel poverty is real.”

Following her equipping at the Haggai Leader Experience (HLE) in 2012, she actively participates in the local Haggai ministry; as a faculty member for national seminars, and learning coordinator. At her local church, she organized weekend family camps for two years. She instructs Sunday school teachers on how to share the Gospel and coordinates equipping workshops. During the lockdown, Penelope helped to organize virtual equipping for Christian leaders in her country.

Penelope organizes weekend family camps, providing an opportunity for her to mentor young women in the community.

“Through my continued work with Haggai, I have learned how to set realistic goals. In turn, this has influenced my ability to help organizations change their culture to be more goal-oriented. I have helped organizations set up policies and procedures that have impacted their performance. And as a nutritionist, for example, I helped conceptualize the breakfast sandwich as part of a local initiative to provide a nutritious breakfast for school children. The sandwiches always contain protein and key micronutrients to enable better learning.”

Through networking, social media platforms, partnering, coaching, and mentoring, Penelope continues to befriend and win to Christ those with whom she comes in contact.

“Everyone has to chart their own course and set their own goals. I am just here to facilitate the process, through the prompting of the Holy Spirit.”
