Minister Doris Pittman
Minister Doris Pittman is a resident of the City of Chesapeake, Virginia and a “true force” for the ministry of the Gospel through her gifts and God’s grace. She is a retired employee of The Portsmouth City Public Schools for over 33 years. She accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior in January, 1987 and is thankful that God has raised her in victory over her illness “Lupus”, attacking her kidneys in 1984. She has gone through several battles having this disease, but has catapulted in victory with a testimony as a witness for God, to family and others. She is married to Minister Wesley D. Pittman (her High School Sweetheart for over 32 years) and from their union God blessed them with their beautiful, miracle daughter, Doriece or Dj, a Kindergarten Teacher..
