The ministry of the Life Celebration Center (formerly known as Greater Shiloh Apostolic Temple Church) was founded by Bishop Hannah and “Lady Hannah” as she is affectionately called, in 1981. Her faithfulness and altruistic spirit can be seen in various positions that she has held within the ministry: President of the Usher Board, Sunday School Superintendent, Sunday School Teacher, Missionary, Choir Director, Church Secretary, Church custodian, Church Culinary Chef and she continues to assist in the ministry wherever there is a need. Lady Hannah founded the Women’s Ministry of the Life Celebration Center (W.O.P., Women of Power) where many women have surrendered their lives and will to God under her teaching, encouragement and mentoring within both the church and community. She has extended her tremendous anointing to women across the country.  She has taught and trained women in Kenya, Africa where she assists her husband, in overseeing the 47th Episcopal Kenya Africa Council.  Lady Hannah, in concert with her husband has established over 300 churches in Kenya, consisting of nearly 30,000 congregants.

Lady Hannah was licensed and ordained by the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World in 1999 and received a doctorate degree from the Aenon Bible College in 2002. In addition to her doctorate degree, in July, 2005 she received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Pastoral Ministry from the new A.P.P.L.E. program through the Aenon Bible College as well.  She has been blessed with a financial proclivity that has afforded her the opportunity to partner with her husband, in creating a clothing establishment, a children’s store and a dry cleaners. She brought her anointing and business savvy to the Executive Board of Ministers’ Wives for the DC, Delaware, & Maryland District Council, where she served as Financial Secretary.  

Evangelist Hannah exudes a level of purity that shines like gold; a spiritual finesse that has transformed pressure into power, love, and sensitivity that permeates the very soul of all she touches. She has somehow managed to clothe her anointing, gifts and tenacity in a fabric of humility that radiates her love and commitment to the kingdom. Lady Hannah has always had a love for music and uses the gift God has placed in her to minister in song with the Praise and Worship Team of Life Celebration Center. She is a fourth generation of apostolic believers.  To God be the glory.
