Pastor Lucius Ingram saved in 1976 and Lady Shirley Ingram saved in 1974 have been married since August 1976 and have two daughters and two grandchildren. God has blessed them with a strong, stable marriage - based on the Word of God. They have been a blessing to each other, helping and supporting each other in areas that was not privileged to them in their earlier years.
Pastor Ingram, in his earlier saved life, served as Sunday School Teacher, President a youth ministry - educating them through the Word of God and in practical living. He also served as a Deacon, a Minister and as an Assistant Pastor for over 14 years. He was called by God to Pastor in 2001; Saints Fellowship Church was started January 6, 2002. He is a Man of God who loves the People of God and has a heart to serve and teach that our relationship with God depends on our relationship with others (family, friends, etc). He believes that the Word of God is true and is the basis for our growth and development in God.
Lady Shirley Ingram has worked in different areas of the church and is proof that God has no respecter of persons. God has proven to her that He is able to pick up an individual - even if He has to reach "way down". She was, like others, looking for love in all the wrong places, confused, and bound up with the spirit of low self-esteem and insecurity. Growing up feeling that everyone else was better than she because of circumstances - she has allowed God to comfort her heart in letting her know that He has and will continue to bring the best out of a situation.
Both Pastor Ingram and Lady Ingram are examples of growing up as children having voids in their lives, he without a father and she without a mother. They are living witnesses that God does make the difference. Their relationship with God has given them both a message to help others to know that God loves them, has not forgotten about them and that the theme God gave for Saints Fellowship Church is true -
"A SOUL IS A SOUL - REGARDLESS OF CONDITION".
