Pastor & First Lady

Bishop Solomon and Prophetess Arlene Smith
Bishop Solomon Smith responded to God’s call to preach the gospel in May of 1961. On July 9, 1991, Bishop Smith, under the leading of the Holy Spirit, founded Mount Moriah Christian Center, a non-domination full gospel church.

Bishop Smith has a heart for the family and to see those who are bound with addiction gain freedom through the power of God. Bishop Smith’s passion is for the lost and those that have been broken, hurt and abused. His fathering nature has been an umbrella for those who have been abandoned and left fatherless. Bishop Smith’s vision is to equip the people of God to live an abundant lifestyle of worship which in turn will impact the community and world.

First Lady, Prophetess Arlene Smith brings two-fold power of prayer and grace to a new dimension.

Blessed with a spirit of excellence, wisdom and keen spiritual discernment, Prophetess Arlene, is Bishop’s Smith welcome co-laborer in the Lord.  Prophetess Arlene assists Bishop Smith with organizational details of the ministry, works with executive ministry director and church secretary, and assists in marriage counseling. She also leads the intercessory prayer ministry.

Associate Pastor

Bishop Solomon and Prophetess Arlene Smith
Dr. Pamela Denise Smith Woodfolk, the second child of Bishop Solomon and the late Pastor Ernestine Smith, embraced Christianity at age 7 and was baptized by Solomon Smith, the Assistant Pastor of Mount Siani Baptist Church. Raised in a spiritually rich household with numerous cousins and those in need, her family's ministry inspired her career path. Her mother, affectionately known as "Ernestine the Great," was a compassionate figure, running child daycare and serving as a nursing assistant.

After graduating from North Chicago High School, Dr. Pamela pursued nursing school, initially in Omaha, Nebraska, before transferring to Howard University, where she graduated with honors in Physician Assistantship. Combining her medical expertise with her ministry, she served at Cook County Hospital and participated in emergency medical missions worldwide. Dr. Pamela met her husband, Kenneth E. Woodfolk, during a tour in southern Illinois, and they have two daughters.

Her calling to preach came after the birth of her second daughter. Dr. Pamela's powerful ministry, marked by healing and deliverance through the Holy Spirit, includes ordination as a Prophetess from the School of The Prophet and Dream Institute and Mount Moriah School of Ministry under Bishop Solomon Smith's leadership, making her a chosen vessel for this time.
