Rev. Dr. Kathleen McNamara was a student in classes at Founders Church in Los Angeles when she first met Michael Bernard Beckwith. Inspired by his teaching, when Rev. Michael founded Agape, she followed and has been in high service at Agape ever since.
Her earliest memory is of prayer beside her bed as a small child. It is fitting that she directs Agape’s Prayer Ministry which offers healing prayer via telephone 24 hours a day, seven days a week by Agape Licensed Spiritual Practitioners. Rev. Kathleen has served as Director of the Sacred Order of Agape Practitioners since 1990 and is one of the lead instructors in the Professional Practitioner Studies program. She teaches classes in the Power of Prayer and leads breakout workshops every year at Revelation, a yearly conference produced by Agape featuring foremost New Thought speakers.
In 2014 she was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Divinity by Agape University for her excellence in both leadership and teaching. She is an advisor to Rev. Michael Beckwith and has been an Agape Minister since 2008.
Much loved and highly respected by Practitioners, students, her peers, and the congregation, Rev. Kathleen is also god mother to six little boys who you will often see sitting on her lap or next to her at services.
