Change Church, Lioness Women’s Ministry


Caring, capable, and creative are all words that accurately describe Shameka Daniels. She is the wife of Dr. Dharius Daniels of Change Church and the proud mother of two sons: Seth and Gabriel. As a strong voice in the Change Church community, she helps to lead many of the creative, administrative, and organizational aspects of the church.

Shameka also provides leadership to the ladies of Change Church through her Lioness Women’s Ministry. Shameka encourages every woman to rise up, roar, and walk in purpose. Through this ministry she empowers women to reject the cultural notion that women have to be “this or that” because the truth is, women can be “this and that.” Like the Proverbs 31 woman, God has uniquely designed us to be great women and to accomplish great things. Lionesses are not ashamed to be who God has fearfully and wonderfully made them to be! Shameka coaches and disciples women through workshops, bible studies, and other creative events.
