Elect Lady

Akowa L. Armstead

Elect Lady Akowa L. Armstead was born into a legacy of ministry on both sides of her family.  A long line of pastors, ministers, prophets, and musicians have imparted and passed on their gifts to her coupled with God’s desired ministries He would directly ordain.  For that reason, building the Kingdom of God has always been a vital part of her existence.

Elect Lady Armstead was the first born of Charles Willis and Glenda Cauthen and the first grandchild of the Willis clan.  She accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized into the faith at the tender age of 5 showing early her boldness to seek God and make a public declaration of her love toward Him.  As the years progressed Elect Lady reached another milestone in her spiritual journey by receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit at age 16.  The immediate result was an inner urgency to heed God’s call to  preach the gospel to anyone who would listen.  Reports are still pouring in 25 years later of the impact Elect Lady Armstead and her friends made on their peers during high school.  Just before graduating from Cass Tech, Elect Lady was licensed into ministry at 17 years old.  God has continued to move and use her for His glory in various areas of ministry, including intercession, teaching, preaching, and outreach.  In 2002, Elect Lady Armstead welcomed her son Kareem J. Ford into the world.  They relocated to Maryland in 2010 expanding her ministry vocations to include Director of Worship and Arts and Pastor of Worship at churches in that area. 

In 2015, Elect Lady Armstead met the love of her life, Pastor D’Andre Armstead.  Their union in 2016 launched the onset of ministry as they have never before experienced. Together they have embarked upon combining their gifts, talents, and ministries to win the lost, heal the sick, demonstrate the beauty of covenant marriage, and forge unified fellowship within the Body of Christ.  Elect Lady proudly stands by her husband’s side in ministry and in life to help in any way that he needs.  This is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes.
