Dr. Alice D. Murphy, Overseer

Dr. Alice D. Murphy is the Overseer of New Covenant Church of Jesus Christ, and a spiritual force in the community. In addition, she is a firm believer in the power of prayer. She contends that ministry must be two-fold: first, evangelism by reaching the community and the world for Jesus and secondly the edification of the saints of God.


At an early age, Dr. Murphy was taught the Scriptures by her parents. Her grandmother and mother were both missionaries in a Pentecostal Holiness Church. Today she still believes and teaches that the way of holiness is what God requires. “Follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14.

She states that we are living in troubled times and the spirit of deception is rampant. However, this is an exciting time for the church and God is still saving the lost. She prophesied that “now there is a present wind of change and a shift in the atmosphere because we are about to experience a great move of God.

The emerging apostolic generation is clearly void of religiosity. We believe that the ministry gifts have begun to function with greater power and authority since the time of the early church.

The praise and glory must not be given to men. We give God the glory because he is worthy to be praised. “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the Excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.
