Suzette Caldwell

Intense determination to implement God's purpose for her life would describe the character of Pastor Suzette Caldwell. She has committed her life to achieving excellence through biblical living. She strongly believes that any person who is willing to "walk by faith" and trust God will achieve their dreams and desires.

In 1986, Suzette graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering. Caldwell's professional career as an environmental engineer in the public and private sector spans over 17 years. As an entrepreneur, she owned TC Consulting Group, Inc., an environmental consulting company. In September 1997, Governor George W. Bush appointed Mrs. Caldwell to the University of Houston System Board of Regents.

Presently, she serves as an Associate Pastor for Windsor Village UnitedMethodist Church. In addition, Caldwell serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Kingdom Builders' Prayer Institute, a non-profit community-based organization that prays for the Houston metropolitan area and teaches people how to pray. Her service to the community, in addition to her technical career, has better equipped her to empower people to fulfill God's promises for their lives.

    I am significantly troubled by this sermon. This was more an Obama pep rally than the type of message I would expect from my church. He did win the election and we should wish him well, as his success largely affects the country's success. However, a significant part of the population (approximately 54 million) did not agree with choosing him. We should not be subjected to a "get on board" pep rally in our own church. Hopefully, this is an isolated event and we will not see it's like again. If this type of sermon continues to be given, then I will regretfully have to again search for a new church.

    We are told to pray for our leaders, whether or not we voted for them. That is our responsibility. Our failure to do so is our sin. I did not vote for Obama. But the Lord saw fit to allow his election. If I pray that he and his administration will seek and follow God's will and they don't, the sin becomes theirs. I did not view Mrs. Caldwell's sermon or prayer as a pep rally but simply encouragement for Christians to take up their God-given duty. Maybe more of us should have been praying the same prayer for George W, too.

    When I heard she was going to preach on Yes we can, I did think of Obama. It didn't bother me that she did that, it was a great sermon. And she was right that we all should pray for the authority placed over us, if we voted for him or not. I think in the light that it is Martin Luther King day tomorrow, these people came a long way and I am happy for them. I did not vote for him, but God is in control and He put Obama in that place, His will not ours. I liked her very much, a dynamic speaker and i will not forget the cat on the roof, marci

    I had never heard of suzette Caldwell until I saw her on Hour of Power on TV. Her message spoke to my heart. There are times when self doubt set in and it is good to reminded that "Yes! You Can!" The word "can" speaks to one's ability. She biblically defined our God given ability to do what He has placed in our hearts. We are the ones to say, Yes! We will! I voted for George W and I am very disappointed with his administration. I prayed for him anyway because we have a scriptural mandate to pray for our leaders. I focus mainly on the troops, but upon rememberance I still pray for George W. It should not be any different now that Obama was elected president. I have two prayer books with prayers for the leadership of America and I say these prayers when I can't think of what to say. We are children of God created unto good works. Let us not allow social or political issues to distract us from who we truly are in Christ. Thank you Suzette. That was a good message. God bless
