Speakers

Dr. LaTonya Penny
Senior Pastor @New Mount Zion Baptist Church in Roxboro, NC
Dr. Penny believes that all children are created in the “imago Dei”, the image of God, and should be treated with love, honor and respect. She is actively involved in many organizations pertaining to children with disabilities and the fair treatment of children. In March of 2013, Dr. Penny launched her nonprofit Mary’s Grace Incorporated, named after her maternal grandmother, Mary Stanfield, which creates programs and ministries of inclusion for persons with disabilities and their families, in churches and communities. Mary’s Grace is another excellent resource for all persons with disabilities and their families, and something very close to the heart of Dr. Penny. In addition to consulting for All Belong, she is the Senior Pastor of New Mount Zion Baptist Church in Roxboro, NC and the Executive Director for Family Abuse Services, a domestic violence service provider.
