Our First Lady: Lady Tammorra Golder

She received the gift of the Holy Ghost on January 1, 1993 at Grace Apostolic Church (GAC). She is the wife of Pastor Cecil E. Golder, Jr., Pastor of New Bethel Tabernacle Church, South Bend, Indiana. They are the proud parents of two sons, Joseph Cecil and Elisha Michael.

In 2000, God used Lady Tammorra to birth “Ladies of Excellence Ministries.” The ministry has mentored female students in the public school setting, as well as middle school, to increase positive character development, positive relationships, effective communication, leadership skills, and college planning. This ministry has been operating in the Indianapolis Women’s Work Release Center implementing the same principles. The successful and much needed ministry is currently and prayerfully in the process of becoming incorporated.
