OUR FIRST LADY
Grace Bible Fellowship
Lady Qwivander T. Smith (affectionately known as Lady Q.), is the First Lady of Grace Bible Fellowship of Antioch, California. Lady Q and her husband, Senior Pastor Kirkland A. Smith, visionary and founders of Grace Bible Fellowship Ministry, are together proud parents of five beautiful children. Born and raised in New Orleans, LA, Lady Qwivander is a true Southern Girl.
Their first Bible Study was held two days after 9/11, September 13, 2001, in their family beauty salon, Heavenly Hair by Qwivander. She has served faithfully since the inception of Grace Bible Fellowship, wearing many hats in the ministry. Lady Qwivander is an anointed woman of God. She has been appointed to be the Director of many ministries.
Lady Qwivander has a heart for young girls and women. In 2005, the First Lady was appointed the Ministry Director of Grace Bible Fellowship’s Women's Ministry. This ministry’s foundation for Kingdom building soon became the standard for all churches within GBF and remains a model for Spirit success. She is a visionary, a woman of purpose and she’s a woman of passion.
She is also the Ministry Director of a mentoring program that ministers to young girls aged 8 to 18. This ministry has blessed girls through financial scholarships, teaching and training, self-confidence, and motivating each of them to live a life pleasing to God. This Ministry teaches them how to give back to their community.
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.
