We had the good fortune of connecting with Pastor Deedria Chauntee Example and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Pastor Deedria Chauntee, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risks are necessary to grow any business or brand. People say that I am a risk-taker, however, I simply trust GOD. He said that all things will work together for the good of those that love him. and are called according to his purpose. I stand on that promise. So as long as I show up and trust him. I either win or learn. BUT the Fight is fixed in my favor!
What should our readers know about your business?
I have done many things in life but one I am most proud of is the work that I am doing with The GEM Project and The GEM Church.
We are not your traditional church. THE GEM Church is a millennial minded ministry rooted in the love and biblical teachings of Christ.
The GEM Project takes a wholistic approach to ministry. We desire to minister to you spiritually as well as help you grow naturally and financially.
I have found that its difficult to teach love to someone who is hungry or cold. So we try to meet their tangible needs first and then minister to them.
I feel some churches are tithes based and never really pour into their members, churches never create opportunities or unit together to create change in the world.
The biggest thing that I want everyone to know about The GEM Church is that whatever condition life finds you in you are worthy of the unconditional love of GOD and you are welcome to worship, learn and evolve with The GEM Project.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Atlanta has the most amazing restaurants and parks. Ra Sushi would be our first stop then. Cafe Intermezzo for dessert. Botanical Gardens and Piedmont park would have to be top on the list as well.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would not be able to maintain the level I am on today without, the love support and assistance of my fiancé Mr. Jaye Meggs.
He puts in longs hours making sure the the businesses are thriving and takes care of home when I am working or away. It feels amazing to have someone that supports the way that he does. We are truly a UNIT.
