Minister Mom

  Martha Alexander was born in Sharon, Georgia. She is the only daughter of five born to the late Mr. and Mrs. George (Julia) Brown, Sr. She is a product of the Atlanta Public School system. Expanding her knowledge in the field of business, Reverend Martha furthered her education at the Blayton Business College in Atlanta, Georgia studying Business Administration and Secretarial Science.

Martha has been a faithful member of The Greater Piney Grove Baptist Church for many years. She has served in various capacities; Sunday School Teacher, Singing in the choir, a devoted member of the Usher Board and The Arts and Drama Ministry. She served as President of the Ministerial Association at Piney Grove. A former Chaplain for the Dekalb County Jail, her ministry afforded her the opportunity to reach beyond the walls of confinement to touch the hearts of young women thirsty for the word of God. She was also a competent member of Toast Masters International.

Reverend Martha accepted her calling into the ministry in 1998. She was both Licensed and Ordained under the leadership of Rev. Dr. William E. Flippin, Senior Pastor of the Greater Piney Grove Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. She has studied extensively at the Bible institute at her church. She also plans to continue her study at Beulah Heights Bible College.

She is the proud mother of five children Calvin, Vernon, Carol, Latrese and Merical, grandmother of nine and great grandmother of two that keeps her smiling and young at heart.

Above all Reverend Alexander, or as her children affectionately call her “Minister Mom”, is a born again believer and truly loves the Lord for what he has done in her life. Her favorite scripture is Psalm 34:1,

I will bless the Lord at all time:

His praises shall continually be in my mouth”.

One thought on “Minister Mom

  1. I remember the first time I encountered The Great Reverend Alexander. I was like “who is this DIVA??” From day one, she welcomed me like I was one of her own… I credit her for being one of the reasons why I am still where I am at The Grove. Plenty of days she has grabbed me, hugged me tight and allowed me to cry in her arms… When others began to shun me because of my pregnancy, she came with her arms wide open (after she hit me! LOL) Words can’t accurate express the impact she has made in my life. She even gave me one of her “diva tamborines”, which I cherish dearly. — I love me some Rev. Martha Alexander!!!!
