Executive Pastor Bossier City


Elder Veronda B. Lindsey

Senior Pastor New Orleans









Elder Njeri Camara

Senior Pstor Shreveport



Elder Njeri Camara was born Marcelette Walker to the union of Eula Wilson and Willie E. Wright.  She accepted Christ and was baptized at the age of 8 years under the late Rev. J. R. Retledge at Evergreen Baptist Church, 804 Allen Avenue in Shreveport.  She was reared in the Lakeside/ Allendale community where she attended all neighborhood schools.  Njeri had her born again “conversion” experience in 1990 under the deliverance ministry of the late Chief Apostle Josephine Young “J.Y.” Smith of H.E.L.P.S. Outreach Faith Temple.  She accepted her call into the Gospel Ministry in 1992 and was first licensed under Bishop Larry Lawerence Brandon, Jr. in the Fall of 1993.  She is a founding member of Praise Temple Full Gospel Baptist Cathedral.  In 1996, she united with the From Bondage to Freedom Outreach Center and was licensed under Apostle Cornell Hamilton.


Following many years of leadership service in ministry Njeri Camara was ordained an Elder at United Community Church under the pastorage of Rev. Jackie Dozier and the Grace Ministries International Fellowship on June 25, 2005.  Consistently faithful in the things of God, she heard the voice of God in Spring of 2013 telling her she was a prophet.  She was very uncomfortable with the call and did not understand how to move in the gift when God would reveal things and give her what to say.  In her quest for complete obedience to the call of God, she knew there was a need to understand the anointing that goes with being a prophet. 


In the Winter of 2015, she was led into invited to join the “Perfected Word Bible Study” on Tuesday evenings listening to the teaching of Dr. Thomas E. Keys, Jr., Pastor of Restoration Centre’ International Ministries.  While remaining faithful in the vineyard where she had been planted she continued to seek God’s face about the “Prophet” anointing.  No where had things been made more clearer and profound about what she was to do than at Restoration.  She remembers very vividly, the statement that God made to her on Saturday, May, 22, 2016, when He audibly spoke and told her she was a Pastor.  Soon after that encounter, Njeri Camara joined in fellowship at Restoration Centre’ International Ministries and was able to home in on the vision that God had given her in ministry.


 She was now able to visualize how to wrap ministry around business.  Through ministry teachings and the School of the Prophets, Elder Camara was illuminated through the simplicity of the Word and the words of her testimony.  After counsel and discussion with Apostle Keys the vision for Elder Camara’s ministry became vivid.  The vision had always been what the mission of Restoration Centre’ International Ministries is “Restoring Broken Lives.”  Restoring Broken Lives Outreach is a ministry affiliate of Restoration Centre’ International Ministries.
