Pastor Tamara J. Lane
"Ministry is service is people. Innovation is defined as a new idea, method, or device. Ministry needs innovation to remain relatable in reaching souls for Jesus Christ."
Souls and deliverance are the two words that come to mind when one speaks of Pastor Tamara J. Lane. This gifted Daughter of Zion is anointed to serve God's people with compassion, insight and love. Armed with the spirit of excellence and the weapon of prayer, Mother Lane has a burning desire to see the captive set free by the power of God. The Word she brings forth is anchored in the truth of Scripture and provoked by the Holy Ghost to edify, challenge and comfort God’s people both locally and abroad. As a Prayer Warrior, she is empowered by God to combat the enemy on his territory; building up the body of Christ to a stronger relationship with God.
As a Daughter of Zion, her heart is turned to needy souls in the community. With her years of community development and management experience, she understands the hardships of the unfortunate. After getting saved and delivered from the bondage of sin in January 1988, she has served in many capacities in the church. Mother Lane has held ministerial license since 1994. According to the purpose of God, her Spiritual Father, Bishop Charlie H. Green, ordained her an Elder to do the work of an Evangelist in 2000. Her upbringing was around the Prayer Band Fellowship under Mother Dr. Estella Boyd. God, in His timing added to her training after the passing of Bishop Jesse T. Stacks in 2001 by giving her a Spiritual Mother in Zion, Dr. Gertrude Stacks of Shalom Fellowship International. For 20 years, she was mentored and mothered by this great General in the spirit. Her ministry is to souls in need and she is a light to many.
In her secular career, she has been on the forefront of technology and training with 29 years as an Instructional Designer and Technical Trainer. Her love of teaching people has made her an expert in her field.
Her greatest earthly treasures are her husband of 36 years, Overseer Jeffrey D. Lane and her children, Jeffrey Nicholas, Sydney Gabrielle, her daughter in love Chanel Monique and GG’s babies, Julian, Melody and, Gia.
Pastor Lane believes as David did that “One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life”. To this end, she is charged to see the captive set free by the power of God. Together with her husband, side by side, they are working in the vineyard to meet the needs of individuals, one soul at a time.
