Elder Lois Key-Alexander, B.Ch.M., wife of Elder Leon S. Alexander, Jr., and mother of Isabelle Danielle and Joshua Benjamin, serves as the Co-Pastor of the Life Abundant Church of God where her husband is the Senior Pastor. Elder Alexander completed the Bachelor’s Degree Program in Church/Christian Ministries at the Sure Foundation Theological Institute and received a certificate in Basic Biblical Counseling. She has received many accolades for her community service and was honored by the NAACP at their 38th Annual Freedom Awards Dinner. She is also employed by the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
She is the Founder and Leader of Women of Purpose (WOP), the church’s women’s ministry, which seeks to empower and give support and encouragement to women and teenage girls of all ages, cultures and social backgrounds. The message of this ministry is simplistic in nature, that each individual who is permitted by God’s grace to live on this earth has a purpose.
Elder Alexander is a gifted songbird and Minister of music. She has a love for music and is passionate about the ministry of gospel music.
Being a wife, mother, full time employee, Co- Pastor and ministry leader, perhaps one would conclude that’s enough to do. Yet her love and appreciation for theatre arts beckoned her to the stage. She was featured as a lead character in Thanks for Giving, written by the late Donald D. Jones, playing the role of the mother/wife “Missy Humble,” which played at the Mill Hill Playhouse, Trenton, NJ. She was also featured in Crowns written by Regina Taylor playing the role of the spirited grandmother “Mother Shaw” which played at the Bridge Players Theatre Company, Burlington, NJ for which she is a member.
Elder Alexander seeks to encourage believers to progress from religion to relationship with God and challenges the church, the world’s spiritual institution, to offer the hope of the Gospel and the practical demonstration of it. She believes that the church, the people of God, must extend themselves outside of their buildings to the hearts of all mankind.
Elder Alexander’s desire is to love people, but please God; as Galatians 1:10 declares, “Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? …. If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.” She is motivated by the scripture found in Zechariah 4:6, “……Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.”
