First Lady Qwivander Smith is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana. The first of five children, she has always felt the call of God on her life and was saved at the early age of 10. Accepting Christ at an early age has allowed her to mature into a wonderful woman of vision.
Being called of God, Sister Smith relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area where she had met and later married Kirkland A. Smith. Together they have been blessed with five beautiful children.
Sister Smith faithfully served and received most of her spiritual nourishment at Fremont Bible Fellowship in Fremont, CA; (now known as Family Bible Fellowship located in Newark, CA) under the leadership of their spiritual parents, Pastor Horacio and First Lady Florence Jones. Sister Smith is a second time author, actively involved in many aspects of the church and holds the awesome responsibility gift of exhortation.
She recently was the Director of the highly visible Women's Ministry, which established My Sister's Keeper, Heart 2 Heart (a mentoring program for young girls ages 12-18) and Helping Hands (Helping Hands is a Hospitality Ministry that serves those in need) in addition to being a wife, mother and a business woman. She currently serves as Director of the Youth, Helping Hands and Marriage ministries.
Additionally, Sister Smith is the founder and visionary of "Women of Purpose, Power and Prayer", founder and host of Leading Ladies of Antioch, a networking event for business women and co-founder of Spiritual Refreshing, a ministry for Pastor's wives. Her agape love and compassion for God's people of all ages is prevalent in all she does.
Sister Smith brings her message to life with vivid illustrations of relevant issues along with biblical guidelines and instructions for living. As a visionary, she blesses women by keeping alive the biblical vision that God has mandated in his Word. Lifting up the Name of Jesus is dear to her; worshiping God is who she is. Sister Smith is truly a woman of vision, a woman of purpose and a woman who believes that through the power of prayer, all things are possible!
Teamed with her husband, this dynamic duo seeks to radically impact God's kingdom by ministering side-by-side the Anointed Word of God in love and in truth.
