Praise the Lord, since joining the 5 AM Ministry, my hunger for God’s word has increased exponentially with more devotion to Bible Study and Prayer.

The facilitators are wonderful and priceless and have led lively and daily discussions which have increased my spiritual growth and maturity.

I do believe the 5 AM ministry has drawn me closer to God and Jesus in a more personal relationship.

In addition, the 5 AM ministry has helped me to intercede on behalf of others who I know and many I don’t know, “for the prayers of the saints availeth much.” Amen

I want to say congratulations to the Ministry for 32 years of service to the Kingdom.

I was introduced to the ministry by a friend for prayer and I really enjoy giving God the first fruits of the morning with worship, prayers, encouragement and Bible study.

I love longevity! With growing up in foster care things weren’t always stable but God was always taught.

Min. Nadine Cager who teaches us with love and energy to take the “little stories” of the Daily Bread and strengthens our faith to develop perseverance to mature and complete us to prepare us to do Kingdom work no matter who you are and what you’ve come from.

As she says “get off your seat and hit the streets!”

God Bless and continue on until Jesus comes again! Love you all!

I am thankful for those in the Ministry who have helped me learn more about God’s Word which has and continues to lead and guide me spiritually.

“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy.” [Psalm 107:2]

I accepted Christ and was baptized at an early age of 12, but I definitely wasn’t living the Christian life as I should have.

But I thank God for the Blood of Jesus, His love mercy and grace and turning my life around saving my soul and bringing me to a closer walk with Him, at a time when I was sinking more and more in my sins of hard-headness and disobedience, wild life, men and partying, having no hope in this world, no life, no direction.

But I thank God for bringing my repentant heart into subjection to His will by using the Settles family in introducing me to this wonderful, loving and powerful praying group of saints in the 5am Bible Study Ministry.

What a wonderful freedom of change in my life the Word of God has sown into my heart! I love the Lord, and through this love and freedom, God has now given me this gift of reconciliation and joy where I can forgive and share His Word to others. Amen.

Earnestine White; Member – 23 Years

Joan Robinson-Crump; Member – 7 Years

The 5AM Bible Study Ministry has truly been a God send.

By joining this Ministry, I have been challenged to do more than just read, but really meditate on and study God’s word.

In so doing, I have grown in my faith, and receive the tools needed to dig deeper and get a better understanding of the bible.

And most importantly, it has enabled me to share my faith with a boldness that I never had before.

I thank God for the 5AM Bible Study Ministry and being a part of these wonderful saints of God who are daily striving to do His will.

Diane Pierce; Member – 12 Years

Participating in the 5 AM Bible Study has been a blessing in my life.

I love the interactive sharing of ideas on biblical application.

Starting my day with bible study impacts the entire day.

I am more inclined to be focused on being more Christ like and intentional on seeking God’s will.

Teresa Bailey; Member – 2 Years

Joining the 5AM Ministry, thanks to Minister Nadine Cager, has been such a blessing to me in my growth with the King!

Even on the days I really have issues within my body, I keep pressing on!

Each day given, I’ve learned the true Word of the GOD and what it’s truly all about. and I am walking in that Truth!

I cannot wait for Monday to come; I get so excited and its is not about being on the line, it’s about giving Our Father my first fruit of the day!

Josephine Livingston; Member – 3 Years

I have grown so much from being a member of the 5 AM Bible Study Ministry.

It wasn’t very long after being assigned to Class 2 that I was asked to be the facilitator.

Being a facilitator has been very rewarding and enjoyable. I look forward to meeting with the class as we come together to study God’s word.

The learning experience has helped me to grow spiritually in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Erma Robinson; Member – 9 Years

Being a part of this ministry has helped me grow spiritually. I look forward to continuing to learn how to live a life according to His Word.

Rachel McCrae; Member – 32 Years

I am disciplined studying God’s Word every day, growing leaps, and bounds!

His word is showing up in my actions and deeds. Studying with the Ministry is satisfying my hunger and passion for God’s word.

We serve an Awesome God and studying His word has revealed the depth of love He has for His people. Knowing what God has called me to do has given me great peace.

I praise God for the excellent leadership of Minister Nadine Cager, and Sister Pansy Wells for their faithfulness of 32 years as founders of this great Ministry.

Brenda Adams; Member – 6 Years

I can’t believe that it has been eleven years since I joined the Ministry! Others had told me about it, but being a member is another matter.

This ministry has enhanced my Bible Study and helped to strengthen my walk with the Lord.

Also, to interact with like-minded Believers is another benefit.

Praying that the Lord will continue to impart His favor upon the leadership and members of this wonderful outlet for Christ!

Ironia Broyles; Member – 11 Years

I am truly humbled that God would choose me to be a part of such an awesome Ministry. I have learned so much from God’s Word. A blessed 32nd Anniversary 5 AM Members!

Minister Nadine Cager, Co-Founder; Member – 32 Years

First, I congratulate the 5 A.M. Bible Study Ministry on 32 Years of studying and teaching the word of God, and especially our Directors, Minister Nadine Cager and Sister Pansy Wells. They have done great works in the name of the Lord and both are beautiful individuals inside and out.

Since I have been a member of the 5 A.M. Bible Study Ministry, my relationship with Christ has grown tremendously more than I had ever believed prior to joining the Ministry. I now know so much about Him. He has protected me from the enemy in so many ways and times; especially while I was a Care Taker for my aunt Cora until she passed December 15, 2019.

He elevated me from the Intro class to now an Encourager and Teaching every week and also a member of the Intercessory Prayer Team. My favorite scripture is to trust him Proverbs 3:5-8 and Jeremiah 29:11.

God has blessed me tremendously in answering many of my prayers and most of all getting to know Him better and becoming more like Him, and much much more and I’m looking forward to many more growing days towards eternity. PROVERBS 3:5-8 PTL.

I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul. He has done great things, Bless His Holy name. AMEN!

Julia Bowman; Member – Since 2016

I am a member of the Faith Worker Ministry at Woodstream Church in Mitchellville, MD. Elder Leon Swanson was the leader, and he asked me what I like to do? My answered was to study the word and passed it to others. Elder Swanson assigned me to 5 AM Bible Study Ministry.

This was a God send blessing for those bible materials that I received during my early years. This have cause me to be closer to Lord Jesus Christ with a mature mind by opening my eyes to the knowledges about our savior beyond mine means.

The Holy Spirit is guiding me, instructing me, and enlightens me to God’s love. He has that same love for all mankind to be saved. “Amen”

Edward Shanklin; Member – 5 Years

I thank God for 5 AM Bible Study Ministry. I knew about this Ministry a couple years before I joined, thanks to Ernestine White, but God’s timing is always perfect. God knew I needed strength, encouragement, inspiration and Isaiah 40:31.

Truly I found in Him a resting place and He has made me glad. Thank You and Congratulations 5 am Bible Study!!! Stay on the Wall for God is Pleased.

Unittie Peyton; Member – 2 Years

A friend recommended the ministry; I scoffed because I did not want to be up before the birds. A bit later, the drama ministry at my church did a presentation for the 5AM’s retreat in 2010. I was so impressed with the ministry that I joined a few weeks later. Since then, my ability to conduct Bible Studies creatively and effectively increased.

The 5AM Bible Study Ministry has transformed my life.

Tammy Phillips; Member – Since 2010

Congratulations to 32 years of ministry.  The 5AM Bible Study Ministry has been a life safer for me.  During the pandemic my church was shot down and needed a closer walk with the Lord , so I asked Sister Debra Johnson if she knew of a ministry  that I could joint to help me connect with the Lord.  

Ever since I have been with this ministry my life has changed and I am a better person because of it. I have a stronger prayer life and a closer relationship with my father.  Thank you 5AM Bible Study Ministry for staying the course and keeping this Ministry going.  God Bless all the founders!

Geneva Bagby; Member – Since 2021

After attending the Rainbow Tea Luncheon sponsored by the 5 AM Bible Study Ministry in July 2016, it took another 18 months before I decided to commit to joining the ministry. It took that long because I knew I had to make some sacrifices to make it work; I’m in my fifth year of participation now and I have no regrets!

I was thirsty for something. Something more than I was getting at church, which was a lot (worship service, bible study, classes in Christian education). Maybe a different format, maybe a smaller group size, maybe a dynamic teacher. Something. After spending 4 months in the introductory class, I selected to join class 12. When Stella McLean and the students of class 12 joined the introductory class for a week, something clicked. Stella sounded like she was a teacher for teachers; you know, taught teachers how to teach! I wanted more of what she was gifted to offer.

Once in her class, I thought this lady is tough. She didn’t seem to be pleased with any of my entry scripture verses. But because I was thirsty, I didn’t back down or bark back. I tried harder and eventually go it. Stella’s wealth of experiences as a daughter, wife, mother, teacher and friend and how God has been intertwined in it all, brings a relatability to studying and gaining insight into the mysteries of this great Gospel. Along with Bobbie, Evelyn, Ruby, Tolani (Tolani and I moved from introduction to class 12 at the same time) & the Holy Spirit, we have a synergy that address my thirst (not quenched yet). That keeps me committed.

I am very, very grateful for the 5 AM Bible Study Ministry, its founders and leaders for the sacrifices made over the past 32 years which has afforded so many individuals the opportunity to fellowship with others while “Studying to show ourselves approved unto God … To God Be All The Glory”. Much Love.

I am very grateful for the support of the 5AM prayer community, through their wonderful, amazing prayers they brought my daughter and grandson, together again. They were nearly divorced after nearly 20 years of marriage.

God bless you all!

Olga Jansen; Member – Since 2021

I joined the 5 AM Ministry in 2013. A dear friend of mine, Sister Lillian Isler introduced me to the Ministry. We attended the same church, so one Sunday morning during one of our conversations, she told me about this Conference Call Prayer Line Ministry that she was a member of. My Prayer life wasn’t as active and consistent as I desired it to be, so I let her know that I was very interested in joining.

After giving me the specifics, “5 AM – 6 AM”, I said really, y’all get up that early every day and stay on the phone for one hour Praying? I was very impressed. I followed through, contacted Minister Nadine Cager, joined the Introductory class and from there was assigned to Class 2.

Initially it was challenging but Glory be to God, it became my wake up call and I am so thankful for joining because I am still reaping the benefits. The 5 AM Ministry has definitely contributed in deepening my relationship with God and in studying His Word. It has also strengthen my Prayer life, aided in growing my Faith, Trust and Dependency on God. Since joining the 5 AM Ministry, I have lost love ones that were very close and dear to me. The hurt was do deep and un-consolable, I didn’t know how I was going to pull through it. But Thanks to God, my family and my 5 AM family prayers, phone calls, cards, encouragement and love expression s I was able to persevere.

I am so thankful and grateful to Sister Lillian Isler for introducing me to the 5 AM Ministry and for the Holy Spirit leading me to join. The Ministry has truly been a Blessing, an Inspiration and Support in this Pilgrim’s journey.

Earnestine Jones-Jennings; Member – Since 9 Years

Being a part of the Bible Study Ministry, with our teacher, Minister Cager has really increased my knowledge of the Bible.  The interactions in all areas make me thrive to be stronger in the things God requires of me. May God continue to bless this Bible Study Ministry.

I have for some time wanting to be a life long learner but after retirement my efforts slowed.  I thank God for the 5 AM Bible Study Ministry. There is no other subject to study than God’s Word.

James Johnson; Member – 3 Months

I thank God for the 5AM Bible Study Ministry because it helps keep me focused on God and His plan for salvation.   I appreciate all the members of the Ministry and their dedication and purposeful living for Christ.    It has been an awesome experience to watch and experience God’s omnipotence through the works of His people.

Margaret Lindsley; Member – 4 Years

During my two year i have always been suffering but I would have not made it without the 5 AM Bible Study Ministry.

Brenda Foster; Member – 2 Years

The Cancer Support Ministry at my church, Saint Stephen Baptist, was getting ready for a Cancer Support Ministry Program. Sister Viola Freeman suggested Minister Nadine Cager’s be included as one of the speakers for the Program.

This was when I met Minister Cager. She was chosen to be one of the speakers for the program. The 5 AM Bible Study Ministry was preparing for one of its 5AM Bible Study Ministry Anniversaries at Andrew Air Force Base. I was invited by Sister Viola to attend the anniversary. I enjoyed the anniversary.

Afterwards, I talked about the 5 AM Bible Study Ministry often with Sister Viola. She invited me to join the 5 AM Bible Study Ministry. The rest is history.

This Ministry has been a blessing to me. I have also met some wonderful Christian friends!

Blanche Yelverton; Member – 14 Years

I am blessed to be a part of this ministry. It has strengthen my desire in reading and studying God’s word. My prayer life has increased. Minister Cager continues to pour into me by making it so plain in studying God’s word.

The ministry was my support during my sickness and the death of my mom in 2017. I am blessed to encounter so many believers in studying God’s word.

My strength is commitment and faithfulness. Blessings and peace.

Thank you Sister Pansy Wells and Minister Nadine Cager for the vision of this Ministry.

Sandra Powell; Member – 7 Years

I have been with the ministry for 8 years. I thank Mother Mabel Gray, a dear friend of 35 years, for introducing me to the ministry. I have grown very much in the 5am ministry. I praise God for what he has done and continues to do in my life. To God be the Glory!

I thank God for the vision He gave Sister Nadine and Sister Pansy as founders 32 years ago. Hallelujah, praise God for them! I thank God for everyone who encouraged me along the way in the ministry. I am a member of the 5AM Intercessory Prayer Team.

It is a joy to intercede in prayer for others around the world.

Madgalen Rose Harris; Member – 8 Years

I have truly been blessed by the 5 AM Bible Study Ministry. While I have only been a member for the past 3 years, I have supported the ministry down through the years in many activities. Thus, my soul has been enriched as a result. Waking up Monday through Friday to participate in a 5AM Bible Study Class has been quite an adjustment. However, it has been very gratifying to start my day with the “Good News” from the Holy Bible.

I enjoy welcoming new members into the Ministry, in addition to “studying to shew thyself approved unto God.” I give all Praise and Honor to God for this Ministry. I wake up each day with a grateful heart. I am grateful to the leadership for such a “well organized” Ministry. I commend them on their great work, dedication and congratulate them on this 32nd Anniversary. “To God Be the Glory”!

The 5 AM Bible Study Ministry has truly been a blessing to me and my family. I have met so many wonderful people and I am looking forward to a time when we can spend quality time together giving God all the praises which He so richly deserves.

There is no other place that I would rather be at 5 AM Monday-Friday, studying the Word of God (2 Timothy 2:15).

LaVonda Yankey; Member – 11 Years

5 AM Bible Study Ministry has impacted my life by adding dimensions of study through the use of commentaries with the text. The use of small groups has enhanced learning in fellowship.

In addition, established prayer times, Monday and Thursday at 7 pm, has helped to overcome insurmountable odds, again in fellowship with small groups.

I am grateful for and acknowledge the power of small groups.
