Co Pastor - Dr. Cynthia McGill

cynthiaDr. Cynthia L. McGill is the Co-Pastor of New Life Fellowship in Rochester, NY and is the Founder of Women of Excellence, a ministry of New Life Fellowship which focuses on women of all ages, from all pathways of life and from all races and cultures.  Dr. McGill is also the Founder and President of Priceless Vessels, Inc. ® , a national organization designed to empower women in leadership.  She is also the author of the books, The Journey to Wholeness, and Sex and Marriage: Myths Uncovered.

Dr. McGill studied at the University of Rochester where she was conferred with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English.  She gained a Master of Science degree in Instructional Technology from Rochester Institute of Technology.  She crowned her educational pursuits with a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Higher Education Administration from the State University of New York at Buffalo. 

Dr. McGill was Assistant Provost at Rochester Institute of Technology for six years and an administrator of several programs at the Institute and other universities during her twenty (20) year secular career.  She has been mentoring young women for many years in her church, the Greater Rochester community and while employed at Rochester Institute of Technology.  During her service at the Institute, she mentored many women into leadership positions. 

She has served the community in many capacities and been widely recognized for her efforts. Dr. McGill has been inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and was elected (1 of 100 women) a member of the esteemed “Leadership America” (1991), a national project organized by the Foundation of Women’s Resources.  She has received numerous awards and honors, including:  being named as a member of Outstanding Women of America in 1982; Rochester Women’s Network 2001 “W” Award Finalist; “Women of Valor” 2001 Finalist for the American Diabetes Association; and Rochester Women’s Network Up and Coming Businesswomen’s Award, 2004. She received a Heritage Black Gala Award from the City of Rochester in 2012. She served as the 2009 President of Rochester Women’s Network, and subsequently as part of the RWN 2010 Executive Committee.

Most recently, Dr. McGill determined to rebrand herself and the Priceless Vessels organization. Having begun Priceless Vessels (affectionately known as “PV”) over 10 years ago, she felt it time to branch out and expand the organization.

In the winter of 2012, Dr. McGill sponsored her first annual, “Rebrand – Rejuvenate – Redefine: An Empowering Experience™” conference in which she hosted more than fifty women at the Rochester Airport Marriott, in addition to guest speakers such as Jennifer Leonard and 13 WHAM News’ Norma Holland, encouraging the women to become empowered and whole: professionally, personally and spiritually.

Dr. McGill believes that many women have been defrauded or have cheated themselves of joyous living. She believes that women have immeasurable authority to influence their households, friends and society. She talks passionately to women, addressing every situation in their lives with tenderness, honesty and practicality.  Her questions are challenging and her counsel specific.

Dr. McGill integrates a wealth of sound Bible truths with her individual experiences in a passionate style that presents women with a pathway that leads these vessels of honor toward their purpose.  Hundreds of women from all over the nation have been delivered and transformed at her lectures, workshops and now Priceless Vessels, Inc. 

Dr. McGill is married to Bishop Reginald A. McGill, Founder and Senior Pastor of New Life Fellowship.  They have two beautiful daughters and a precious granddaughter who is the love of their lives.
