OUR FIRST LADY
Evangelist Morenike Shelton
Lady Shelton, a.k.a., Lady Nike, is a woman on fire for the word of God. Raised in church by her two adoring parents, she received her first teachings of the faith at home. In the ecclesiastical realm she grew up in Holy Tabernacle Church, Dorchester, Massachusetts, under the former Bishop Joe L. Smith, and later grew into her calling under Rev. Joe L. Smith, II at Greater Generations Tabernacle Church, Brockton, Massachusetts, where she fostered her passion for praise and worship as the praise and worship leader. Currently she serves as the First Lady and Praise and Worship leader at Living Elevated Church in Brockton, MA where her husband Rev. Eric Shelton is the Founder and Senior Pastor.
Aside from being a psalmist, Lady Nike, loves to spend time in prayer as she believes constant communication with God is critical to growing in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Knowing who Jesus is allows her to preach the gospel from her heart and through the word of God to wherever God sends her. She is the author of the L.O.V.E. (Living Out Victory Everyday) Blog and the visionary of the B.A.D. (Bold, Anointed, Delivered) Girl Ministry for women of all ages.
Lady Nike is small in stature but powerful in the things of God. She loves to love God’s people and takes time to greet everyone with a hug and a smile. When she’s not at her home church you can find her serving the community by reaching out to under-privileged youth and troubled teens, as well as in the courtroom advocating for her clients, as she is an attorney at law. In her spare time she enjoys traveling and spending quality time with friends and family.
More importantly she stands beside her loving husband and has vowed to walk with him wherever the Lord takes them. Out of all the ministries and strengths the Lord has given to her, she values none more than being a loving wife. Her prayer is that she will be an example of a virtuous woman for many women to come.
