Our first lady
Pastor Lena D. Murrell is a woman of God who truly loves people. She has a heart of giving.
Her life is based on Matthew 22: 37-38 where it says "37: Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy mind…"  And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself…  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
A native of Beaufort, North Carolina, Lena Murrell at an early age began to work in the ministry under the leadership of her father Apostle Willie Murray. She served as praise and worship leader, youth leader, choir director, food ministry, and church announcer.
Lena Murrell's passion was really with the youth especially the young girls where God used her to speak to them out of her experiences.
Some years later Lena was ordained as a Minister under the leadership of her father, where God used her to minister on Wednesday nights and also at Women Conferences. She served faithfully under her father for 60 years until April 15, 2017 when she joined in Holy Matrimony with Apostle Ezekiel Murrell, Jr. In December 2017 she was Ordained as Pastor at Great Joy Worship Center. As Pastor her desire is to work faithfully alongside her husband to help spread the gospel of the Kingdom.
