Deanna Davis is a passionate Bible communicator, missionary, Sunday school teacher, wife and mother of 3. She has spent the last 20 years in ministry, leading women and university students, both stateside and overseas, to a greater understanding of what it means to love, trust and seek God with all our heart – especially from the broken and messy parts of it. She regularly travels internationally and to college campuses in the southeast, leading retreats, teaching Bible studies, mentoring rising leaders and facilitating divine appointments between people’s hearts and God’s Word. She is a member of Kennesaw First Baptist Church, where she and her husband teach college students, and is currently working on her masters of marriage and family therapy at Richmont Graduate University.
Sunday School teacher and small group leader for college students at Kennesaw First Baptist – Oct. 2011 – present
My husband and I have worked with university students for over 20 years, here in the states and as missionaries in Germany. We are grounded in our local church, are committed long term to both it and the university students God sends our way, and
we love what we do!

I have led dozens of retreats and spoken for many Christian organizations/churches over the years, both in the U.S. and in Europe, for university students, women, and ministry leaders. Stateside, these include the Baptist Campus Ministries of the University of South Carolina, Valdosta State University, the University of North Georgia, Georgia College and State University, Kennesaw State University, The University of Dayton, Truett-McConnell College – churches: Kennesaw First Baptist Church (my home church), Northlake Baptist Church in Gainesville Ga, Crosspointe Church in Duluth Ga (my former home church before moving), Bjølsen Misjonskirke in Oslo Norway, Evangeliumsgemeinde in Jena Germany (an evangelical church in Jena Germany), Evangelisch-Freikirchliche Gemeinde Jena (another evangelical church in Jena Germany), and Connexxion Student Ministry in Europe

I have found that pain is often a door Jesus walks through on His way to someone’s heart. Therefore, I realized I needed to be able to better speak this language.
TCK and military brat, cross-cultural world traveler.
My history has led me to become a world citizen, and this multicultural lens colors much of who I am and how I teach.
Leader and teacher in women’s ministry at Crosspointe Church in Duluth Ga from 2008-2011
I take Titus 2:3-5 very seriously : “Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, 4 so that they may encourage the young women to lovetheir husbands, to love their children, 5 to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.
Therefore, I love women’s ministry and believe there is a real place for women to intentionally teach and create community with other women, especially around the topics that define the reality of a woman’s life: relationships, mothering, marriage, etc. I am a mentor and teach to mentoring topics often.
