Rev. Brittany M. McCoy



Rev. Brittany Monchele’ McCoy, lovingly known as “Pastor B,” was born on December 29, 1986, to Mary A. Douglass-Pridgen and Craig T. Smith in Baltimore, Maryland. She received her early education at St. Katherine’s School and then attended the Institute of Notre Dame, where she received her high school diploma in 2004. While attending the Institute of Notre Dame, she was a member of the track team, the Gospel Choir, Reading IND, and many other extracurricular activities. After graduating from high school, she attended Morgan State University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management—one of the greatest accomplishments of her life. Currently, she is enrolled at the United Theological Seminary, Dayton, Ohio, pursuing a Master’s of Divinity degree. Her life-long goal is to earn a doctorate in counseling.

Accepting Christ as her personal Savior at the age of thirteen, Brittany was a faithful member of Trinity African Methodist Episcopal Church, where she diligently served the Lord she loves so dearly. She was the Youth Ministry Director, and she served as Administrative Assistant to the Pastor.  Also, she served on TVOP, the Ushers’ Ministry, and the Y.P.D. and was a Church School teacher. Her passion is working with youth and young adults as she finds radical ways of serving God through ministry and discipleship. Led by the Holy Spirit, on September 18, 2011, she accepted her calling to preach and teach the Gospel. 

Subsequently, On April 15, 2016, at the 200th Session of the Baltimore Annual Conference, Rev. McCoy was ordained as an Itinerant Deacon in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Then on July 24, 2020, during the 204th Session of the Baltimore Annual Conference, Bishop James Levert Davis appointed Rev. McCoy as the Pastor of New Queen Esther A.M.E. Church in Easton, Maryland. During her first pastoral appointment, she plans to bring a Biblically-based ministry with a model of “Church Beyond the Walls” to New Queen Esther.

While attending Morgan State University, she met her soulmate, Charles “Chuck” McCoy, a musician, administrator, and audio/video engineer. They were married on June 28, 2008, and from this union they have four beautiful children: Caden Jamore’, Caihree Jaden, Carter Jacob, and Little Miss Charlie Brielle.

Her favorite scripture is Psalms 121: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” Her second passion is music and singing, her favorite song being “Lead Me, Guide Me,” which has gotten her through many trials and tribulations and even through the joyous moments of life.

Rev. McCoy is a humble vessel full passion, praise and power who stands boldly to declare the Word of God.
