Lady Shantez Harper

Lady Harper is an ordained minister at Ark of Safety Church in Mobile, AL. She received the precious gift of the Holy Ghost at the tender age of 19 under the ministry of Bishop Arthur Holmes, Sr. and accepted the call to minister in 2005 under his leadership. Lady Harper has a Bachelor’s in Management and Human Resources, and she is the director of Ark of Safety Christian Academy where the staff believe in raising up our children in the ways of our Lord Jesus Christ. These values and principles should be instilled in their hearts at an early age.

Lady Harper married her high school sweetheart, Bishop Ellis L. Harper, Jr., on November 15, 1995. After over 22 years of marriage, it is a blessing that they are HAPPILY married. The two love birds are the proud parents of LaShunda, Dajha, LaErica, Ellisa and Matealia, and they are GiGi and OG (grandparents) to Janae “Shamanay”. Yes, ALL girls! Lady Harper’s first ministry is her home where she teaches her daughters how to cook, clean and keep the home.

Lady Harper loves the Lord, and is devoted to working alongside her husband in ministry at the Ark. She is dedicated to the Women’s Ministry and believes in leading by example. She exhibits discipleship and is a great example to the women of the ministry and the community. At the heart of her ministry is a great passion for issues related to marriage, parenting, women in leadership positions and ministering to pastors’ wives. Lady Harper is thrilled and is looking forward to what the Lord has in store for Ark of Safety.
