Pastor Lois Rochford is the Senior Executive Pastor & First Lady of New Life Cathedral. She submits to and seeks to compliment the ministry of her husband, Bishop Robert Joel Rochford.
A multi-talented woman of God, Pastor Lois is a seer with a prophetic mantle to share the gospel through the spoken and written Word. She travels extensively blessing thousands with her practical and often humorous preaching style. Her burden is for women (and men) to live balanced and productive lives. Pastor Lois hosts an Annual Women’s Weekend in September, which is increasing in anointing and numbers. She teaches women the importance of balancing the demands of home and ministry, with home being the first priority. She recently published her first book entitled A Do Right Woman, an inspiring and helpful guide based on the Proverbs 31 woman.
In addition to her ministry, Pastor Lois is a business executive. As the Founder and President of Your Sunday Best Everyday, LLC, she assists women in maximizing their God-given potential to express a fusion of Faith and Fashion – Inner Beauty with an Outer Manifestation. Pastor Lois received certification from New York’s finest Fashion Institute of Technology as an Image Consultant and is certified by the AICI (Association of Image Consultants International). She conducts workshops, seminars and private consultations.
In addition, Pastor Lois is a graduate of Beyond the Walls Life Coaching under the mentorship of Reverend Dr. Jacqueline McCullough. She was privileged to be the first woman speaker for the 27th Annual Commencement Address of the prestigious Community Bible Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Pastor Lois exhibits the spirit of excellence in all that she does, thereby giving all glory to Jesus Christ as Lord, who is the center of her joy. To add to her joy, she has been married to Bishop Rochford for 33 years, and they are the parents of two children, Melaine (Mel-Layne) Robyn and Robert Joel II.
