A dynamic Speaker & Preacher. Passionate about communicating. From the pulpit to the public, touching lives & giving hope. 

Previously known as Pushie Dunn, she was first introduced to the African public as a television presenter in 1997 and grew to become a well-known face across the continent.

Originally from Liberia, Pushie’s culturally diverse heritage lead her to further her education in Kenya and Ghana, followed by a study related gap year in the Gambia before finally immigrating to South Africa.

Since then her career has evolved in more ways than one. Between 1997 and 2002: she was a television presenter on DSTV’s Channel O music station where she attended the Grammies and interviewed the likes of Janet Jackson, P. Diddy etc, exposing her to audiences all over Africa. She concurrently presented a show on SABC 3 called Health Wealth, which was a specialist, medical show enlightening the public about a myriad of health procedures. Following which, she was approached by SABC 1 to co-host the music variety show Jam Alley, which ultimately gave her the opportunity to connect with an even larger South African audience.

Thereafter, she presented a number of television programs such as Africa Within - a lifestyle and travel show that focused on the African diaspora and was broadcast on DSTV’s Africa Channel and currently airing on the Africa Channel in USA. She was also the perfect choice to be the master of ceremony for SABC’s live millenium broadcast, for Johannesburg, at the turn of the millenium. She also ventured briefly into acting as well, appearing in the popular television soap opera, called Backstage in 2002.

By 2003, Pushie had reached a turning point in her life and surrendered to the call of God to begin serving in ministry. With her extensive experience as a television personality, she took the opportunity to serve at Rhema Bible Church, volunteering in the television department. Her work included recording the screened Sunday service announcements and introducing Pastor Ray McCauley’s nationally broadcasted sermons on local television stations ETV and SABC 2. Moreover, she was chosen to be the main broadcaster for Rhema Television - RTV, anchoring links and becoming the master of ceremony for various conferences, which often hosted international guest speakers such as Brian Houston, Joel Osteen, Joseph Prince, Jentezen Franklin, John Bevere and Bernice King, all of whom she interviewed.

She went on to become the Head Of Women's Ministry at Rhema Bible Church, running the department and speaking at their conferences. Her latest platform was as the hostess of her own gospel talkshow called: Real Talk with Pushie on Top TV’s Top Gospel channel, which started in 2011.

She firmly believes that having returned to television with a wealth of ministerial knowledge and experience has enlarged her territory and sphere of influence from the pulpit to the public.

Affectionately known as 'Pastor P', Pushie is regularly invited to preach at churches, schools, universities, and conferences nationwide and around the world. She recently 

in March 2016 she was invited to speak at Bishop TD Jakes' Brick Young Adult service at The Potter's House of Dallas, as well as Pastor Paula White's New Destiny Christian Center's Women's Conference in April 2016 held in Orlando, Florida. 

Pastor Pushie is passionate about spreading the gospel of God around the world.

Pastor Pushie was named one of South Africa's Most Inspirational Women in 2011
