Catrina Tillman, wife of Pastor Ezra L. Tillman Jr. and mother to four children, is an Author, Speaker, and Activist. However, the title that she is most passionate about is Servant.
Having a love for God’s Word, coupled with a passion for aiding women in pursuing their dreams, Catrina founded S.H.E Ministries. S.H.E (Spiritual Humble and Elegant) Ministries thrives on empowering women from all walks of life to live out their God-given purpose. S.H.E Ministries was featured in the 2017 May issue of Kingdom Christian Magazine, highlighting SHE Speaks, a weekly Facebook Live Chat with Catrina Tillman discussing Real Talk, Real Topics, and Real Solutions. In November of 2017, Catrina released her first book titled “Her Walk: The Journey Within”, a 31 Day Devotional. Within its first month, over 500 copies were sold nationwide!
With a servant’s heart and a love for man-kind, Catrina Tillman alongside her husband Pastor Ezra Tillman Jr. of First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church, has been a leader in the response efforts to the Flint Water Crisis. On Feb 1, 2016, the Environmental Justice Rally was held at First Trinity M.B.Church where over 500,000 cases of bottled water were distributed to the citizens of Flint. The Lott Carey Herald took note of Catrina’s ongoing involvement in aiding those affected by the water crisis, in which they did a featured article titled “Bridge over Troubled Water” in their Summer 2016 Issue highlighting her engagement and leadership.
Ebony Magazine, CNN, and Shondaland also took notice of Catrina’s work as she notably, spearheaded First Trinity’s partnership with Actor, Musician, and Philanthropist Jaden Smith in the development of the “Water Box”, a portable water filtration system that can produce 5 gallons of clean water in 30 seconds. Within its first 7 months of usage, the Water Box has replaced over 68,000 bottles of water!
Catrina enjoys talking about the practical things of life while being able to find God in them. It is her desire that God’s children humbly seek Him to understand his/her purpose in life and operate in confidence knowing what God has destined for them is just for them!
Her favorite scripture is “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with my eye” Psalm 32:8.
