Rev. Dr. Regenia Garrett has been in pastoral ministry for 28 years and preaching/teaching as speaker and evangelist since a teen. Dr. G states that one of the most important part of her life is to exemplify the life and love of Christ in all that she does and says. Born in Montgomery, AL to Deacon and Deaconess Eli and Sarah Garrett (Baptist), Dr. G was faithfully raised in the church – almost literally - 7 days a week. Her passion and love for the Word of God, holy living and teaching truth were formed during those years of church attendance and training.
Dr. G has an undergraduate degree in Biology and Chemistry (Alabama State University), a MA in Higher Education and Administration (University of Iowa), a MDiv with a concentration in Biblical Studies (Dubuque Theological Seminary) and a DMin in Ecumenism (Wesley Theological Seminary). Her greatest degree has been the ongoing study of developing a deeper and more intimate relationship of going beyond the veil. Dr. G offers seminars and workshops on topics such as Sacred Space, Going Beyond the Veil, Multiculturalism Then and Now, Spiritual Gifts and Simple Biblical Exegesis for Daily Application. She enjoys preaching and her goal is to preach more on the nation’s circuit.
Proud to parent a son (Dorsey and daughter in law Michelle) and daughter (Mia and son in law Benjamin), Pastor G also has two grandchildren (Sarah Marisol and Micah Vincent) and another on the way (Alanna Grace). Cascade United Methodist Church has been home since July 2018. While she has pastored in Iowa, Virginia, Alabama and now Minnesota, she looks forward one day to preaching revivals and teaching seminars and workshops across the nation.
