Burton, MI  WW/ Press/May 8, 2015 –Dianne Marie Bogan, Director, of Michigan Great Lakes First Women’s Ministry, Harris Memorial Church of God in Christ, was selected for inclusion in the forthcoming 2012-2013 edition of The Heritage Registry of Who’s Who.Dianne M. Bogan #4715 (Updated 5-8-15)

The accomplishments and achievements attained by Mrs. Dianne Marie Bogan,
in the field of  Women’s Mentoring Services, with  Michigan Great Lakes First Women’s Ministry, warrants her inclusion into The Heritage Registry of Who’s Who. Mother Dianne Marie Bogan, a native of Pontiac, Michigan, is the daughter of the late Bishop Charles J. Johnson, Sr., who served as Prelate of Northeast Michigan Jurisdiction and the late Mother Lillian Keyes-Johnson, who served as the Jurisdictional Supervisor of the Northeast Michigan Jurisdiction. She is primarily described and known throughout the body of Christ as a servant. By example, Mother Bogan exemplifies true servant leadership, consistently demonstrating hospitality and the love of Christ with a pure heart. She shared 37 wonderful years of marriage with the late Bishop Walter Emile Bogan, Sr. She birthed two sons: Deacon Walter E., II (Toi) Bogan and Pastor Eric C. (Karleen) Bogan, one granddaughter Kolbi Shantel, and two grandsons Blake Harris and Luke Emile. Her love and support for her family is reminiscent of her belief that ministry first begins in the home.

Mother Bogan’s beautiful spirit, wisdom and sincerity effortlessly attracts people of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds affording her the opportunity to plant the seed of the Gospel literally across the world, as she has ministered not only across the United States but in foreign countries as well. Drawing heavily from the influence and training of her parents as well as her experience as a Pastor and Bishop’s wife, she leads by example giving invaluable lessons stemmed from Titus 2 as a curriculum and Proverbs 31 as a model, sincerely challenging women to first and foremost be productive at home in the lives of their husbands and families as well as their local church and community.

In 2006, God, in His infinite wisdom, saw fit to elevate Mother Bogan, at the demise of Mother Merle Ruth Cranford, to serve as the second Jurisdictional Supervisor of the Great Lakes First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of Michigan under the leadership of the late Bishop Clifford C. Dunlap and currently serves with The Right Reverend, Michael E. Hill, Sr., Jurisdictional Prelate. Graced with the anointing of the Lord and crowned with His wisdom, it is evident that Supervisor Bogan has been chosen by God to lead this great host of women “for such a time as this”.

Some of her leadership highlights in the Church of God in Christ include: Pastors Wife for over 25 years, five years as a Bishop’s Wife, Director of Women’s Ministry at Harris Memorial Church for more than 32 years, National Adjutant for 15 years to the General Supervisor of the Department of Women, Mother Willie Mae Rivers, National Executive Hospitality Chairperson for the Department of Women, Women’s International Convention Event Planner, National Adjutant Mother Liaison for the Department of Women and member of the National Women’s Department Grievance Committee. In July 2012, Mother Bogan had the distinct pleasure of meeting and communing with First Lady Michelle Obama as she accompanied Mother Willie Mae Rivers as a guest of the White House for the African American Women’s Forum – “Mother, Sister, Daughter, Leader”.

Mother Bogan has received multiple awards on a local, district, jurisdictional and national level being honored for her service, namely “Miss COGIC in the year 2000. In 2013, she was honored and awarded by The Michigan Chronicle during their annual Salute to First Ladies banquet. Most recently she is noted as the distinguished author of the self-published “Protocol, Guidelines & Procedures for the Servant Ministry” booklet.

In addition to training and developing many women to serve on a local, district jurisdictional and national level, Supervisor Bogan is also named as a spiritual mother to a countless number of women across this nation. Her ministry goes beyond the confines of the church as she has multiple partnerships with organizations throughout the community. Her partnerships include the National Multicultural Diversity Ministries, Genesee County Food Bank, and she serves as the Secretary of the Genesee County Ministers Wives Society. As a partner with the American Cancer Society, she donates hair-pieces for women in need within the Genesee County. Mother Bogan abundantly shares and displays her God given wisdom, knowledge and joy, across the nation reminding all that “Service is not in a title, but in a towel”. A sage of her late husband.
