Minister Phyllis D. Trafton is an ambassador for God who has given her a ministry of reconciliation. She is dedicated to serving God by spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She has the motivation and ability to reconcile people back to the Lord Jesus Christ. Our founder, Minister Phyllis Trafton, lives with her husband of 23 years and their daughter in Baltimore County, Maryland. Aside from being a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, she's also a published author, mentor, entrepreneur and a graduate of The Baltimore School of the Bible. Of all her achievements, none could be more remarkable than her being an overcomer and survivor. She's currently the Founder/ CEO of The Overcomers Network and she works in the IT field in Baltimore.

At the age of 34, Phyllis gave her life to the Lord Jesus Christ; and since then, it has been her fervent quest to experience His grace, mercy and love daily and to share that love with others. In 2005 Phyllis was ordained a Deaconess by Pastors Linwood and Apostle Dr. Karen Bethea and on December 31, 2015 Phyllis was ordained a Licensed Minister.  She has been a servant and faithful member at Set the Captives Free Outreach Center for 15 years. She has served in several ministries such as the Greeters Ministry, The Choir and Praise and Worship Ministry, Prayer Facilitator, Mentoring Program, Special Events Ministry, Director of The Hospitality Ministry and currently the Director of the Domestic Violence Ministry. She also completed and graduated from the L.I.T.E. Class (Leaders In the training experience) at Set the Captives Free Outreach Center.

In addition, she is the author of ” Daddy’s Little Girl & Mommy’s Dreaded Seed”   which had its debut in March 2013, The Suicide Survivor and My Gi-Gi- Introduced me to God” which debuted in January 2015. She has been featured as a new and upcoming author in the Woodlawn Villager.

Prior to becoming a member of Set the Captives Free Outreach Center, Phyllis was on the P.A.C. (Pastor’s Advisory Council) Team at Faith Christian Fellowship in Randallstown Maryland.  Phyllis received her E.T.A Certificate at the Baltimore School of the Bible in Towson Maryland where she graduated from biblical studies. She has also completed and graduated from The School of the Prophetic in Baltimore Maryland. 

Having a heart of servitude and a standard of excellence is embedded in Minister Phyllis’s life. In addition to being a servant of God and a student of the Word, she allows her faith to be extended to the professional and community arena. Her call to serve those who think that they have to suffer in silence is one of passion, empathy, love and a desire to see women overcome adversity through the word of God and His practical application. She is committed to helping those who are struggling with adversity in their family setting and do not see a way out. Her books Daddy’s Little Girl & Mommy’s Dreaded Seed and The Suicide Survivor evolved out of a life that was consumed with pain, abuse and the murder of her father, to a life of an overcomer through Christ who restored her to wholeness and gave her beauty for ashes.

Minister Phyllis also has a “Feed the Hungry” ministry where she feeds and clothes those who are living on the streets and in shelters in the Baltimore City area. She writes daily encouragements and uplifting blogs for her website “The Overcomers Network called “The Daily Lift”.

In May 2014 Minister Phyllis Trafton partnered with Minister Dr. JiaJoyce Conway to form “Greater Beginnings”. Greater Beginnings is a female mentoring program. It is a faith-based initiative birthed out of two umbrella organizations, “Changed from the Inside Out, LLC”, and “Overcomers Network.” These two umbrella organizations have come together to develop a twelve-month woman’s mentorship program that will foster and promote a holistic lifestyle change for women who desire to overcome, be transformed and live beyond past challenges and adversity. Our target audiences are women ages 20 and older. Minister Phyllis currently resides in Baltimore County, MD and is active in the community. She believes that every day is a day to share the “Gospel and Love” of our Lord Jesus Christ.
