Pastor Martha Gordon Osagiede is a Worship Minister, Gospel teacher, and the wife to the Presiding Bishop of Spirit and Life Family Bible Church worldwide, Bishop Ada Gordon-Osagiede Jr. She is the convener of the “Lady of Love Initiative”, an advocate for healthy family life, teaching the culture of Jesus Love to women and has become a role model for women of all ages.
When you ask Pastor Martha to describe herself, she would always say that she is firstly, the mother of three lovely and adorable children; Gabriel, Ruben and Vicky.
But before she was a mother- or wife, Pastor, worship minister or gospel teacher – she was Alejandro and Micaela Tovar’s little daughter. Born in Los Angeles, California, USA. She gave her life to Jesus at age 15. She served in both the youth and music ministries, as the youth secretary and music leader at separate times. God promoted her to greater things at age 18, when she had her first job as a bilingual worship leader at AZUSA World Ministries, PHOENIX Arizona.
At age 19, she recorded her first album in Spanish, titled “A Media Cielo” which brings to mind the need for all people to prepare for the second coming of our Saviour Jesus Christ.
She became a graduate of Azusa World Ministry Training Institute at age 22, with a Bachelors in Biblical Studies. After graduation, she joined the institute and worked as the Coordinator of AZUSA MTI Spanish for 3 years, preparing curriculum, schedules, translating and teaching. Where she later met Bishop Ada Gordon-Osagiede Jr, the man who would become the love of her life.
In 2005, she got married to him, and began her journey into motherhood. She released her second album titled “The Fulness of Time” in 2007, but this time in English and Spanish.
Pastor Martha joined her husband in founding a unique interdenominational marriage fellowship called “Excellent Couples”. Where they teach married couples to be anchored on God’s love and help singles foster godly and healthy relationships towards marriage. They believe “You CAN be Married and Happy for Real”, a fact evident in her own marriage union with Bishop Gordon Jr.
Pastor Martha has been in full time Ministry since age 18, with increasing passion to teach God’s word to children, young people, and especially ladies of all ages. She is fully devoted to God and finds fulfilment when used by Him in her area of call, either as a Pastor, worship leader or gospel Teacher. She continues to support and inspire people.
