G. Porter is the first lady of Greater Community Temple Church Of
God In Christ, where she proudly serves with her husband, Bishop Brandon
B. Porter. Her love for God is evident in her humble nature and her
ministry to the congregation and community. She is an active force
in Greater Community Temple Ministries, currently serving as president
of the Women's Department.
Lady Porter is the lovely mother of two handsome sons, Brandon II
and Bryson. Melody is the oldest child of Deacon and Mrs. Willie Roy
Harris and she has six siblings.
Lady Porter graduated from Northside High School; attended Memphis
State University in Memphis, Tennessee, and Union University in Jackson,
Tennessee; and graduated from Baptist Memorial Hospital School of
Nursing in Memphis, Tennessee. By trade, she is a registered nurse.
Lady Porter is a natural born leader because she touches a heart before
she asks for a hand. As an untiring servant at GCT, she labors as
director of the Women's Department with several auxiliaries under
her leadership. Although mild-mannered and soft-spoken, when she does
speak, it is like the law of E.F. Hutton – people listen.
Porter is one of God’s prized possessions, a beautiful example
of a woman, a first lady, a minister’s wife, a mother, a teacher
and a leader. First Lady Porter is an embodiment of unconditional
love, devoted to the service of all humanity.
