Rev. Dr. Ossie X. McKinney, DWS
Rev. Dr. Ossie McKinney is a worship leader who has served in the music ministry for over thirty-five years and currently, serves as Minister of Music at Faith Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA. Dr. McKinney is an educator who is dedicated to laying a biblical and missional foundation for worship by inspiring worshipers to connect with God and humankind through relationship, discipleship, and service. Dr. McKinney believes that worship is a lifestyle and not an event or a worship service. Her pastoral calling as a worship leader inspires her to not only know the Word of God, sing the Word of God but also be apt to preach and teach the Word of God.
Dr. McKinney was licensed to preach the Gospel April 8, 2012. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of Louisiana at Monroe, a Master of Divinity degree from Mercer University, and a Doctor of Worship Studies degree from Liberty University. In her free time, Dr. McKinney loves to paint, sing along and dance to Old School R & B music, and tour African-American historical sights. She is a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and loves all things pink and green. Dr. McKinney is the wife of Elder Charles McKinney, Jr. and the mother of Khrystyn, Mysty, Nolan, Treylyn, and Xavier.
