Qwivander T. Smith

First Lady


Qwivander T. Smith, affectionately known as Lady Q., is the First Lady of Grace Bible Fellowship of Antioch(GBF).  Lady Q and her husband, Pastor Kirkland A. Smith, are the visionaries and church planters of GBF.  She was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and is a true Southern Girl. She loves to cook, spend time with her five children. Last but not least, she enjoys beautifying and ministering to her clients at her hair salon, Heavenly Hair. 

On the catastrophic event of 9/11, Pastor Kirkland A. Smith and Lady Q held their first Bible Study inside Heavenly Hair. Since then, Lady Q has served faithfully at GBF and continues to do so by leading multiple ministries as a Director including the Children's, Couples, Greeters, Heart 2 Heart, Nursery, Ushers, Women's and Youth Ministries. 

 She is a visionary, a woman of purpose and passion. Truly empowered by the Holy Spirit, this dynamic woman of God is committed to pursuing her passion. Ready to travel beyond the four walls of the church, her ministry is destined to meet the needs of not only Bay Area women, but women nationwide which resulted in Lady Q opening a restaurant in Antioch, California, writing three books; "From a Mother's Womb", "Pursuing God's Purpose by Walking in the Now, and "Pursuing God's Purpose with Grace: A Passion for Purpose", and becoming a real estate agent.

This book is about understanding that we all have been placed here for a purpose. Once your purpose has been revealed to you, walk in it with total confidence. Your purpose is not always something you want to do, it's something you have been chosen to do.  "For many are called but few are chosen".  Matthew 22:14 NKJV
