She stands faithfully with her husband Bishop Taylor, serving in leadership as the director of administration here at Heavenly Vision Church. “Lady Kay” as she is affectionately known as, is a loving and admirable mother to her four children, Kione, Joey, Katelyn and Kristy. Having been reared in the church her whole life, Karen has developed a deep and intimate relationship with the Lord that is evident to all who come in contact with her. While Karen is esteemed by those who are blessed to know her, she is firmly acquainted with her testimony and is transparent enough to share it to edify others and glorify God. To date she has completed school of ministry courses, received her gospel ministry license and has started the “1st Ladies Communion”, which is a monthly gathering of women from all walks of life. Though this ministry outlet, Karen is transforming the meaning of a 1st lady from an ornamental figure to those who are first to seek God’s face for His favor for their families and their future. This woman God is on fire and she will bring the light to this dark world.
