Paula Michelle White-Cain (née Furr; April 20, 1966) is an American preacher, author, televangelist and exponent of prosperity theology, a controversial religious belief that assumes that material prosperity is a proof of God's grace.

White became chair of the evangelical advisory board in Donald Trump's administration. In November 2019, Trump appointed White as special advisor to the Faith and Opportunity Initiative at the Office of Public Liaison.

From 2014 until May 2019, she was senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Center, in Apopka, Florida, a non-denominational, multicultural megachurch. She was formerly the co-pastor of Without Walls International Church in Tampa, Florida, a church she co-founded with pastor and then-husband Randy White in 1991.

She was listed number three on the "50 Most Powerful 2017: Philanthropy & Community Voices" list in the Orlando Magazine July 2017issue.
