First Lady Farrah Crawford
Lady Crawford is a native of Natchitoches, Louisiana who later relocated to Dallas, TX. She grew up attending both the Catholic and Baptist Church and was baptized in the Lord’s Church at a young age. After moving to Dallas, she met her soul mate in the person of Bobby Crawford. They have been happily married for over 20 years and parent five great children and grandparents to two awesome grandchildren.
Lady Crawford has always had a love for children and young adults and have served in ministries to promote empowerment of their spiritual growth during her membership at Gospel Tabernacle Church under the leadership of Bishop David Martin. This is when she began mentoring young ladies and continues as of date.
After following her husband to Discipleship Ministries, she assisted her pastor with the initial establishing of the administration for the ministry. She also served faithfully as a handmaiden to her First Lady and later asked to teach others how to serve in this position. In addition to serving as handmaiden, she created a media ministry for her First Lady’s personal ministry. Lady Crawford also worked with her husband as Youth Directors for ten years.
Out of her love for strengthening mother/daughter relationships, Lady Crawford began hosting mother daughter luncheons to encourage harmony between the two.

This foundation aims to mentor young women from all walks of life.
