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.
