Our First Lady

Sis. Sherva Alexander was the First Lady of Greater Mount Olive Baptist Church. She was also a great support to her husband, as pastor, as well as in many other ministries within the church. Sherva has used her many talents as the director of our Vacation Bible School, Women’s Sunday School teacher, and overseer of the behind the scenes work to maintain our social media pages and website.

Sherva was a hard worker, passionate about education and devoted to teaching Christian principles. For many years she was an IT Specialist and used her professional knowledge to promote organization and structure for her preparation to produce fun moments during VBS and church involvement using social media.

She loved to sing in the choir for special musicals, was an active participant in the Women’s Ministry and other ministry networks like Urban Action Ministries and Dallas Baptist Association, to name a few. She was a poised woman who emphasized, in her daily living, the traits she expected of others: faith, authenticity, character, humility, and hard work. Her smile was always bright, and her heart was always full of enough love, support, and encouragement to share with everyone. Her strength was admirable, her faith was unwavering, and her regal posture was exemplary.

She looked forward to praying for and with others while she experienced her own obstacles. She posted frequently to ask how she could specifically pray for anyone. Her mission became apparent as she found her niche. She was a quiet woman but heard God’s instruction clearly to go spread the gospel. Bravely, with her infectious smile, she would ask people in the grocery store and other places if they knew Jesus. She was honored to evangelize about such a gracious God! She began to teach us all the importance of praise and worship with her phrase “Say it out loud!”. Although she was a nervous public speaker, watch her courageous testimony.

Our First Lady was called home to join the cloud of witnesses. It was truly a Good Friday! Everything about her will truly be missed.
