Evangelist Morenike E. Shelton, affectionately known as, Lady Nike, is a woman on fire for the word of God. She was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, where she was brought up in church by her two adoring parents, who first taught her to serve God. In the ecclesiastical realm she grew up in Holy Tabernacle Church, Dorchester, Massachusetts, under the former Bishop Joe L. Smith, and later grew into her calling under the late Rev. Joe L. Smith, II at Greater Generations Tabernacle Church, Brockton, Massachusetts, where she fostered her passion for praise and worship as the praise and worship leader.
Lady Nike is small in stature but powerful in the things of God. She loves to love God’s people and takes time to greet everyone with a hug and a smile. When she’s not at her home church you can find her serving the community by reaching out to under-privileged youth and troubled teens, as well as in the courtroom advocating for her clients, as she is an attorney at law. In her spare time she enjoys traveling and spending quality time with friends and family.
She currently serves in many capacities, including worship leader, at Living Elevated Church, where her husband, Superintendent W. Eric Shelton, is the Senior Pastor. She is the author of the L.O.V.E. (Living Out Victory Everyday) Blog and the visionary of the B.A.D. (Bold, Anointed, Delivered) Girls 4 Christ Ministry for women of all ages, and founder of Girlz 101, which is a mentorship and empowerment program for girls ages 9-18, reminding each one that even in a crowded room of 100 people, they are still number one! More importantly she stands beside her loving husband and has vowed to walk with him wherever the Lord takes them. Out of all the ministries and strengths the Lord has given to her, she values none more than being a loving wife and now a mother of her precious daughter, Willow-Symone. Her prayer is that she will be an example of a virtuous woman for many women to come.
To sum it all up: SHE B.A.D! To God be the GLORY!
