About Michelle Peters, Founder


The ChurchGurl Foundation and ChurchGurls Rock! is the brainchild of Michelle Peters, CEO of ChurchGurl Signature Rhinestone Tees, which has become a movement of its own. She realized that the brand affirmation and trademark, "ChurchGurl"  needed to be more than a T-shirt slogan. As a black woman, she felt that images in the media often depict us as angry, lacking culture, lacking class and lacking direction and lacking trust in one another. “If we have self esteem issues, this depiction impacts how we feel and see ourselves”says Michelle Peters.  She affirms, “Church girls do rock because we believe in the SOLID ROCK which is Christ Jesus, but we need to confidently feel that steady rock in our core and many of us do not, that’s why we need a rockin’ refresher. Moreover, we want ChurchGurls to be as solid as sororities; to feel a connection the minute we meet a fellow church girl.”  Michelle has been mentoring young black girls since the 1990’s.  She has been told that she is “rock” hard but she defends it by saying that she is quick to let her mentees know how wonderful they are. For 20 years plus..I’ve been encouraging ChurchGurls to make wise decision, express themselves, participate in the arts, cultural and community projects, basic financial literacy, public service and most of all, ministry. She sees that her efforts help to enhance the girls/women self-esteem but feels that more needs to be done. “My heart-felt goal is to unite all church girls as true and honest sisters in Christ. Michelle believes that church girls are resilient, talented, intelligent and gifted; so much so, she trademarked the phrase, “ChurchGurls Rock”
