Minister Assistant April Church

     Hello, I’m April Church and I’m the Minister Assistant at Temple Baptist Church. I was born in Cleveland, TN but raised in Pascagoula, MS. Coming from a broken home and a long history of drugs and alcohol abuse, I spent most of my life lost, scared and alone. When I was 16 years old, I gave birth to my first child. When I was 19 years old, I gave birth to my second child. By the time I was 21 years old, I was an alcoholic mother of two, unsure of my future. But......
     Hallelujah, Praise God!” On August 3, 2003, I met the man that would change my life forever. Due to His mercy and grace, I will never again be alone or worry about 
my future because Jesus Christ Is My Savior! Since then, it has been a privilege to be an instrument of the Lord, serving other believers by helping them know and understand that God that loves them so much. I have traveled the world sharing God’s word with women of all nationalities, races, and religions and I still stand amazed at the Power of the Holy Spirit within women.
     I am blessed, through the power of God to be free from drugs and alcohol. I have a wonderful, loving husband named Brian, four beautiful children, Dylan, Jade, Drevon & Trey, five loving dogs and I am no longer scared or afraid, for God says in Hebrews 13:5 “Never will I leave thee, nor forsake thee."
