...are words that describe the personality of Dr. Ketra. Armed with over 20 years of serving the community, Dr. King is an advocate, mentor, coach, and philanthropist who has radically impacted the lives of believers under the flagship of her ministry.
Dr. Ketra L. Davenport-King, a native of Dallas, Texas, received her Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Communication, Master of Arts in Christian Education, and Master of Business Administration from Dallas Baptist University. She earned her Doctorate of Strategic Leadership from Regent University. She has spent much of her life serving people in various capacities. One of her greatest joys is starting Life After Advocacy Group, Inc., in 2004, to help individuals who have been victims of sexual abuse recover and live a healthy life. Her heart’s desire is to give to others what God has given her “Internal Freedom.” In 2011, she chaired the ‘Walk A Mile in Her Shoes’ campaign in Dallas County, along with other local agencies and city officials to bring awareness for women who suffer from being sexually assaulted.
Dr. King opened the doors to Rock Dimensional Consulting (formally known as KLD Consulting Services) in 2005. Through RDC, she has spent the past 15 years training leaders, developing and educating church ministry lay leaders, coaching, business development, and leadership training. She is best known for her innovative and engaging Leadership Seminar name ‘The Leadership ReCourse.’
In all that she does, she has maintained being a dedicated secondary teacher since 2007, where she teaches Career and Technical Education – Business Education courses at a local high school in Mesquite, Texas.
In November 2012, she married Pastor Willie L. King, which placed her in the position as First Lady of Full Gospel Fellowship Church. Dr. Ketra strongly believes Jeremiah 29:11 is her life scripture. In 2012, Dr. Ketra was appointed Overseer of the Full Gospel Women’s Ministry.
After relocating to Vernon, Texas, in 2015, she teamed with her husband and other visionaries who share her passion for public service to seek solutions to improve and bring awareness to inequalities in rural communities that affect minorities. Dr. Ketra wholeheartedly believes, ‘when you live in a community, there should be a handprint of your work left behind for future generations.’ She launched the North Vernon Women’s Community Bible Study group in 2015 to bridge the gap and bring together a diverse group of women to improve the family dynamic in underserved communities. In 2016, she assisted in organizing a community project to clean up abandoned properties and improve local Senior citizen homes for community beautification. Her community involvement in Vernon included annual ‘Spiritual Awakening’ conferences, leadership seminars, serving as a Salvation Army Board member, Wilbarger County Precinct Chair, and volunteering her time with other local churches and businesses. In 2019, Dr. Ketra, alongside her husband, Pastor King were successful in renaming a street in the North Vernon community to Dr. Martin Luther King Street. Pastor King and Dr. Ketra are devoted and committed leaders in their local community and of the Full Gospel Fellowship Church.
Her other civic duties include being a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Jack and Jill of America (Associate member), and Dallas County Sexual Assault Coalition. These organizations promote a foundation of public service and leadership.
Dr. Ketra and Pastor King would both agree that ministry starts at home. Together they share a beautiful blended family Mika, William, Keenan, and Kennedi, along with seven bonus grandchildren. Spending quality time with family is their favorite past time.
