First Lady Gaynell Albert
A family that prays together stays together is the old cliché used so often by Christian folk. Well, I agree. It is stated in the bible on more than one occasion that we should pray for one another. If we are to grow strong in God as a family, we must pray for one another. I am so blessed to be the wife of Pastor Nolan Albert, a mother of two wonderful sons and the First Lady of the Evergreen Baptist Church family. It is my desire that we, the body of Christ, will become so focused on Kingdom Building that whatever we do would result in fruit that will remain. I believe that God is continuing to prepare me to be the Christian Leader that he desires me to be. God has blessed me with the ability to teach, exhort, discern and serve and I am so grateful.
I enjoy doing the Evergreen Baptist Church program week after week as well as preparing the Evergreen Baptist Church PowerPoint for worship on Sundays. I love teaching the Adult Sunday School class, directing the Mass Choir and the Youth Choir and I truly love leading the Women's Ministry. Being involved in Evergreen Baptist Church is my joy and as long as God gives me the strength, I will continue to serve.
Doing the will of my Heavenly Father is my highest priority and I just want to be an instrument of God's will. Everything that I do, I want it to bring glory to God.
