Founding Pastor and First Lady
New Dimensions Church was founded by Bishop Dexter Edmund and his wife, First Lady Yolanda.
Yolanda is the eldest of three children born to Rev. Harrison and Edith Penn. Yolanda loves God, and appreciates the friendship she has with Jesus Christ. She enjoys talking, and He is there to listen every time that she does.
Yolanda is a native of the Washington, DC metropolitan area. She completed her undergraduate studies in Business Administration- Management in 1995 at Howard University; and received her Master’s Degree in Adult Education and Training in May 2014 from University of Phoenix.
Yolanda is married to Dexter Edmund, Sr. Together they have three adult children, Dexter, Jr., Daniel and De Ann Marissa, each one teaching her something about herself. Yolanda has lived in the United States and England with her family; and has traveled to other countries in Europe and Caribbean.
Yolanda and her husband, Dexter, have been in ministry for over 20 years. They planted a ministry in 1996, Abundant Life Community Church; now named New Dimensions Church, in Lanham, Maryland. “Ministry… is what we do”, she says. And, Yolanda’s theme, “YOU… can make it”.
