Our International First Lady

Dr. Lakita C. Lackey has been anointed and appointed by God to teach and to proclaim the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. She is the daughter of the late Mr. James Caldwell and Mother
Evelyn C. Woodson. Upon graduating from Benjamin E. Mays High School, (Atlanta,
GA) she continued her educational pursuits at Clark College (now known as Clark Atlanta
University) in Atlanta, GA. While matriculating at Clark, she was a vibrant part of the
“Lady Panthers” basketball team. In March 2008, the Anointed by God Seminary of
Brooklyn, NY honored this powerful woman of God by conferring her with an Honorary
Doctorate of Humanities Degree.

“First Lady”, as she is affectionately called, has always been known for having a congenial
personality. Although she had many great virtues, she did not know the Lord. That
changed on December 31, 1983, during the “Watch Night” service at the Christ Tabernacle
United Church of God in Christ (Bishop Spencer Lackey, Pastor). In that service, she
accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord.

On March 2, 1985, she married her high school sweetheart, Minister (now Presiding
Bishop) Aaron B. Lackey. To this union, God blessed them with two beautiful and very
talented children, Aaronlyn L. (Leon) Wright and Aaron B. Lackey, Jr. She is also the
proud grandmother of Xavier Wright and Aalivia Wright.

This dynamic “Woman of God” fervently believes that “All things are possible, with God.”
Dr. Lakita C. Lackey is an ordained evangelist, a highly sought out speaker and the
organizer & leader of the “Women of Excellence Ministries” of the Temple of Prayer
Family Worship Cathedral in Fairburn, GA. Dr. Lackey is the former Director of the
“Silence is Sinful” AIDS awareness initiative through the Southern Christian Leadership
Conference (South Fulton Chapter). She serves as the First Lady of the Temple of Prayer
Family Worship Cathedral, the Georgia Northeast Jurisdiction and the United Churches of
God in Christ, Inc. [UCOGIC]. In 2023, she was featured as the lead singer of the song,
“Wonderful He Is”, which is a part of the project featuring, “Bishop Aaron B. Lackey &
the UCOGIC Mass Choir”.

Through the ministry of our first lady, Dr. Lakita C. Lackey, know that you will be
“Inspired, Impacted and Illuminated”, in Jesus’ name.
