"Dr. Mitzi J. Smith is an anointed preacher with tremendous gifts from God. She blessed our church family powerfully as she delivered the word of God. Dr. Smith preaches with an awesome integrity to the pages of Scripture as she carefully interprets the text for individual and corporate application. Dr. Mitzi Smith displays scholarship as well as passion in her delivery of relevant and dynamic sermons. She touches the hearts of the people of God regarding present social and religious issues, and she does so with courage and sensitivity. I am moved by her love for truth and her willingness to walk on the edge as a voice for those silenced by culture and tradition. Dr. Smith combines heart and head; intellect and instinct for the cause of ministry. To hear her preach is to experience a move of God."
