Our First Lady

First Lady CarterEvangelist Yvonne Carter is a native of Washington, D.C. the daughter of the late Reverend John H. Desper and Evangelist Florence L. Desper. She is a third generation preacher and the fourth child of seven siblings. From her childhood, Evangelist Carter was blessed to have save parents that taught her at an early age to reverence God, live a consecrated and dedicated life that was well pleasing and acceptable unto the Lord Jesus Christ. She was anointed and appointed by God to preach His Holy Word at the age of twenty-two.


Evangelist Carter was educated in the DC Public Schools. She continued her education at the Wilbur H. Walters School of Religion and Howard University Weekend Bible College in Washington, DC. In June of 1989, Evangelist Carter married an anointed and blessed man of God Pastor Howwin Carter, Jr. They were blessed with five wonderful children, two sons (Minister Derrick and Darnell) and three daughters (Lolonyo, Christine and Shekinah).


Inspired and anointed by the Holy Spirit, she was installed as a Social Missionary of the Way of the Cross Church under the Leadership of Bishop Alphonzo D. Brooks, where she served faithfully for ten years. God has used Evangelist Carter greatly in her life through many skills, talents and gifts.


In August of 1999, at the prompting of the Holy Spirit, Elder Howwin Carter, Jr. was instructed by God to start the Agape 1 Church of Christ in Southeast Washington D.C., where she was ordained as an Evangelist and has worked faithfully by his side over the various ministries of the Agape 1 Church of Christ.


Evangelist Carter is anointed and loves the Lord with all of her heart, soul and spirit. She strongly believes in living the life she preaches about and giving God the praise at all times. She is known for sending up the praise to God and has been on fire for Him every since God baptized her in the Holy Ghost and fire. One of her favorite scriptures is Psalms 107:2, “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy”. She has so many favorite worship songs but some of her most recently sung: Lord I just want to thank you, I get joy when I think about”, Your latter will be greater than your past” and You are Holy”.
