Dr. Dora A. Mann Ewing lives in Lake Wales, Florida with her husband Cliff. She has a Doctor of Philosophy in Biblical Studies. Growing up in the family church pastored by her parents Bishop Robert W. and Gladys Mann “planted the most powerful seed that I believe anyone can hope to have: a foundational knowledge of Jesus Christ and the gruesome price He paid to set us free from the curse of sin and shame.”
Ewing’s own search for identity and purpose in life as a Black person led her to diligently research the Bible for this story. “In a nutshell, I was seeking answers to my big question: Why? In doing so, these issues were confronted and challenged, and that empty void begin to fill up with knowledge and understanding that planted my feet on a solid rock. The thing I realized was that I was searching for answers, but God gave me more: He gave me comfort that I didn’t even know I was searching for.” Dora’s vision is to open a community center in her hometown to educate young Black people about their unique biblical heritage.
In her spare time, Dora likes the great outdoors and working out at the gym.
