METRO ATLANTA: Spiritual Uplift: “TAPP-IN” PRAYER RETREAT with ELDER TEKIA SMITH @ Lake Lanier Islands Resort JULY 20-22ND


Elder Tekia Smith is an awe-inspiring pastor who is down to earth and a mighty “Woman of God” well deserving of your attention. She is well studied and adequately prepared having served in the ranks of one of the most dynamic ministries in the nation. I met her working with Dr. Cindy Trimm who in my estimation is one of the most educators in Bible scripture and prophetic interpretation. Elder Smith will be someone that you will soon hear great things about also. Trust me!

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)(NIV)


A native of Miami, Florida, Tekia spent her early years working with the Young People’s Division, (YPD), of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, where she served in leadership positions.

She graduated from New World School of the Arts with a discipline in Musical Theatre. Tekia matriculated to Howard University, in Washington, DC, where she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. Her intentions were to attend medical school upon graduation; however, God had another plan for her life. God is still going to fulfill her desire to be a doctor, but for his glory with a prophetic ministry in healing and deliverance.

After pleading with God about her desires, Tekia accepted her call into the ministry. She graduated from Howard University with a Master’s of Divinity Degree. By accepting this call, Tekia has catapulted in ministry from teaching weekly bible studies to mentoring and holding empowerment sessions for youth and adults. Under her leadership, the college bible study quadrupled in size and continues to produce spiritual growth in the lives of the young women long past her graduation from her alma mater. With a God-given gift for church administration, she assists ministries in their start-up phase to excel into an area of excellence in the communities in which they serve. Tekia conducts workshops and ministers in various places nationwide.

One of Elder Tekia’s mandates is to teach others how to tap into the presence of God through the power of prayer. Her ministry is a prophetic ministry in healing and deliverance. She is the founder of TAPP IN Enterprises, The Authentic Prophetic Prayer Symposium, (TAPP), and the TAPP IN Institute, where it is her vision to usher people into a true and authentic presence of God through the power of prophetic prayer and to generate a momentum in their lives for prayer. She is also the founder of It’s Prayer Time, where many globally call in every Wednesday from 5:00am–6:00am for the word, prayer, and intercession.

Elder Smith has served as a Christian Education Director and Youth Pastor. She empowers others by letting them know that their past does not have to be their present. Elder Smith has a heart for diligently seeking God through prayer and worship. Her motto is “Let’s TAPP IN!”
