A native of Fort Valley, Georgia, Lisa graduated from Fort Valley State University in 1989 and moved to Northern California for eighteen years. Lisa re-dedicated her life to Christ in 1991 and became an active member of St. Mathews Baptist Church in Livermore, California. Lisa served on various ministries at the church and most recently served on the Board of Directors for God's Love Outreach Ministries, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoration of the community. Lisa and her family returned to Fort Valley to be closer to family and to share the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ. Lisa is married to Minister Kuumba Rashidi and has three beautiful children, Joshua, Makeda, and Obafemi. Lisa's calling in God's ministry is to nurture others and protect them from hurt, abuse, financial hardship, trouble and misfortune. She will continue to fulfill this mission as she works with organizations such as the Feed Center. One of Lisa's favorite scripture passages comes from Psalm 34:8 - "O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him." Lisa has dedicated her life to being a servant and fulfilling Jesus' commandment to love one another.
