Biography of Dr. Linda S. Smith

Elect Lady of the Blessed Assurance Churches


Dr. Linda Smith has dedicated her life to fasting, praying and seeking the face of God. Even though she and her husband, Apostle David L. Smith, started out with humble beginnings in a converted nightclub, which became a place of refugee for lost souls, an extension of that ministry has been birthed. Dr. Smith carries a burden and compassion for hurting women of all ethnic, cultural, denominational and social backgrounds. Her vision for all women is to see them move forward and become yielded and willing vessels of excellence in which God can use.


Dr. Smith grew up in Syracuse, NY and moved to Kannapolis in 1973. She is married to the Pastor and Founder of the Blessed Assurance Churches, Apostle David L. Smith. They have two sons, Andre’ and LaBrint. Dr. Smith has received her Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Counseling and a Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctorate Degree in Theology. She is a member of the Black African American Christian Counselors (B.A.A.C.C.) and the American Association of Christian Counselors (A.A.C.C.). Most importantly, she is a chosen vessel of God. She is anointed to touch the lives of hurting women and to encourage, strengthen and empower the people of God.
