Hall Elected President of Black Ministerial Alliance

Reverend Arlene O. Hall, an ordained minister in the Church of God, has been elected to the presidency of the Boston Black Ministerial Alliance.

According to a release from the Boston BMA, the election is both groundbreaking and ceiling-shattering. It is groundbreaking in that Reverend Hall represents the youngest person to serve as the BMA’s president. It is ceiling shattering in that she is the first woman president of the BMA.

Along with her husband, Bishop Raymond Hall, Pastor Hall founded the Deliverance Temple Worship Center in 1999. Built on the pillars of consistent prayer and Spirit-filled worship, Pastor Hall has innovated new ministry strategies that keep the church on the cutting edge.

Pastor Hall has served on the board of the BMA since 2004 and has represented the organization in many areas; at the State House on behalf of BMA’s Girls Initiative, providing guidance and support for Clergy Women United -a BMA initiative to support and strengthen women in ministry and meeting with key leaders of Boston.

Hall is often called upon to speak nationally and internationally. In the 2012 Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary commencement service, Pastor Hall was the commencement student speaker; the first time the commencement student speaker was chosen from the Boston campus. In February of this year Pastor Hall was the first female/woman to preach at the Church of God Black Ministries Awareness Celebration at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary in Cleveland Tennessee.

Pastor Hall graduated from the Church of God Ministerial Internship Program in 1992 and received her ministerial license. She has a master of divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston, and is currently pursuing the doctor in ministry degree at Pentecostal Theological Seminary.

“It’s no mystery why Pastor Hall was chosen to be the President of the BMA,” says the executive director, Rev. David Wright. “Pastor Hall has all the qualification of a great Christian leader. She loves the Lord with all her heart, she loves God’s people, she continues to equip herself to serve God’s people, and she is willing to go beyond tradition to find new and better ways to fulfill God’s commands. And, to be frank, people just love her and her servant’s heart. Who better to lead the BMA?”
