I am married to the wonderful Ronald Wilson.  I have my BA degree in Psychology from SUNY at Old Westbury College and a Certification in Christian Ministry from the New York Theological Seminary.  I was ordained in 2009 at Saint Albans Baptist Church, where the Rev. Dr. Curtis T. Harding Jr. is the pastor.  I assist the pastor in any area that is needed (weddings, christenings, funerals and worship services etc...)

 

I am currently the Youth Pastor and the Ministry Coordinator for the The Great Commissions Missions Ministry (Coordinating Missions trips to Minister and support churches and orphans in other countries), at Saint Albans Baptist Church.

I am also responsible for developing, designing, and facilitated workshops, youth retreats, conferences, mentoring program, plays and praise dance creative arts programs for various churches.  Our primary goal of the ministry is to encourage, uplift and empower the body of Christ, to seek the lost and to win souls for Christ. I am dedicated to preaching this Great Gospel and using every gift and talent I have to uplift and encourage all of God’s people. 

I am one of the ministers at  the Saint Albans Baptist Church  ( “SABC”)  under the leadership of our pastor Rev Dr. Curtis T. Harding Jr. and have been in the preaching ministry since 2007.   

 I studied at International Seminary and New York Theological Seminary where I received my Certificate in ministry.  I was ordained in November, 2009 at the St. Albans Baptist Church along with two other ministers.

I  have been married since 1965 and we are the proud parents of two  adult children and  two grandchildren.

Rev. Curtis T. Harding, Jr. was born in Lockland, Ohio. When he was 6 months old his parents moved to Brooklyn, New York where he grew up and attended public schools.  He was called to preach as a young man while attending the Alpha Pentecostal Church; during this time he served for 2 years in the Air Force and received an Honorable discharge. 

He later became a Police Officer and remained on the job for 20 years. During part of this time Rev. Harding attended the Allen AME church where he attended Bible seminary and was ordained and served as an associate minister for five years.

Rev. Harding was called to pastor the St. Albans Baptist Church in 1984. He continued the building Fund program and broke ground for the new sanctuary in 1985. He gives God the glory because the people had a mind to work and we marched into our new Sanctuary just 2 years later, 1987.
