Founder & Host
I am a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, Bible teacher, author, speaker, revivalist, podcast host of Inside Out with Courtnaye (which was rated the #1 NEW Podcast for Women of God) and founder of the non-profit organization Inside Out Worldwide. I'm also the host of "Come All" Revival & Refuel two-day event, and have been a sought-after speaker of a host of Christian events (glory to God!). I've actively served in ministry and the local church for over 25 years, and still serving. I'm a New Orleans, Louisiana native, but have currently been residing in the Texas Hill Country (outside of Austin, Texas) for 18 years. I'm also married for nearly 20 years, and a mother of three beautiful, active Gen Z children.
I am also the founder of Inside Out with Courtnaye - a global ministry that is helping thousands of women grow stronger in their walk with the Lord from a biblical and practical perspective. I am very passionate about helping people all around the world grow stronger in their faith, walk out their Christian lives according to the Word of God, live out their purpose, while also preparing them to be ready in every way for the swift return of Jesus Christ.
I accomplish God's purpose in ministry through events, outreach, resources, video teachings, social media, speaking engagements, and the YouVersion Bible App. I also accomplish this vision through my faith-based public relations, marketing, and mentorship agency, Inside Out Media Group, LLC, where I've worked with platforms such as PBS, CBN, TCT Networks, and Yahoo, as well as local television, radio, print publications, and top-charted podcast shows.
profession of faith
I believe that God is three in One, and is revealed to us as the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. I believe in the deity of Jesus Christ and that He is God's only begotten Son who came in the flesh (1 John 4:2, "Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God), died for us, rose again, to bring us into right relationship with God the Father and to give us eternal life through faith and confession in Him as described in John 1:1 & 14 and Romans 10:9-10 which says, 'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth...If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved."
