First Lady Lakita C. Lackey
Dr. Lakita C. Lackey has been anointed and appointed by God to teach and to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She is the daughter of the late Mr. James Caldwell and Mother Evelyn C. Woodson. Upon graduating from Benjamin E. Mays High School, (Atlanta, GA) she continued her educational pursuits at Clark College (now known as Clark Atlanta University) in Atlanta, GA. While matriculating at Clark, she was a vibrant part of the “Lady Panthers” basketball team. In March, 2008, the Anointed by God Seminary of Brooklyn, NY honored this powerful woman of God by conferring her with an Honorary Doctorate of Humanities Degree.
"First Lady”, as she is affectionately called, has always been known for having a congenial personality. Although she had many great virtues, she did not know the Lord. That changed on December 31, 1983, during the “Watch Night” service at the Christ Tabernacle United Church of God in Christ (Bishop Spencer Lackey, Pastor). In that service, she accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord.
On March 2, 1985, she married her high school sweetheart, Minister (now Presiding Bishop) Aaron B. Lackey. To this union, God blessed them with two beautiful and very talented children, Aaronlyn L. (Leon) Wright and Aaron B. Lackey, Jr.
This dynamic “Woman of God” fervently believes that, “All things are possible, with God.” Dr. Lakita C. Lackey is a licensed evangelist, a highly sought out speaker and the organizer & leader of the “Women of Excellence Ministries” of the Temple of Prayer Family Worship Cathedral in Fairburn, GA. Dr. Lackey is the former Director of the “Silence is Sinful” AIDS awareness initiative through the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (South Fulton Chapter). She serves as the First Lady of the Temple of Prayer Family Worship Cathedral, the Georgia Northeast Jurisdiction and the United Churches of God in Christ, Inc.
Through the ministry of our first lady, Dr. Lakita C. Lackey, know that you will be “Inspired, Impacted and Illuminated”, in Jesus’ name.
