This Week on The Community Affairs Show, Cheryl Jackson converses with Author, Leslie Bishop-Joe. Bishop-Joe, authored an extraordinary book titled, “Pull It Off The Page”. People read the bible for various reasons. Some may read it as simple literature, others may read it out of obligation or assignment. However, with everything that we’ve faced in the last few years, “Pull It Off The Page” is written to give us encouragement to not only read the word of God, but let the words of the scripture come to life in your walk with Christ.
Pastor Bishop-Joe says, this book is dedicated to those who, like me, have a burning desire to know the God of the Bible and to experience His presence and power in the way that we read about but seldom see. There are many who yearn to move beyond programs and rituals to an authentic relationship with a true and living God. My hope and prayer is that you will be inspired to intentionally seek our God with renewed passion and an appetite that only He can satisfy.

While serving in the United States Air Force, Leslie was afforded many opportunities to serve and to be a part of various ministries within the United States and abroad. She committed her life to Christ while living in Osan, Korea.
Her first book, “Essentials For Frontline Living” has proven to be a tremendous tool for those desiring to draw closer to God and to enrich their walk of faith.

Her most recent book, “Pull It Off The Page” (Experiencing the God whom we sing, preach and read about) is written to those who are tired of the mundane and mediocre lifestyle that some may call Christianity.
She has been called to inspire others to place a demand on their faith and to see the manifestation of the supernatural God who is introduced and revealed throughout scripture. This book is challenging, inspiring and uplifting, not just for women, but for the Kingdom of God!
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the “Women In Ministry” continue to connect via a virtual platform and have added ministries in the UK, Kenya, Ghana and India as ministry partners. Leslie firmly believes that the Lord is shifting and strategically positioning and empowering His church and her earnest desire is to be a relevant voice in this critical hour.
