About Our First Lady

Lady Vanessa M. Gaskin (Lady V.) is a summa cum laude graduate of Temple University with a Bachelor of Science in Education, a Masters in Education, and a certification in reading.  Lady V has a deep love for learning, which translates well into the ministry to which she is called.  She is a student of the Word, prayer, worship and praise.  Lady V’s specialty is prayer.  This mantle rightly fits her, as her roots come from a preaching father and an anointed mother.

Lady V is married to Pastor Jeffery Gaskin, and has co-labored in the ministry of Living Waters Christian Center from its infancy until now.  Together, they parent three sons: Jeff Jr., Jordan, and Justus.  At Living Waters, Lady V leads worship, proclaims the word of God, shepherds the women’s ministry and promotes the primacy of prayer.  The prayer ministry is where the Lord has anchored Lady V to be a vigilant soldier in persistent and insistent prayer.  Annually, Lady V hosts an annual Women’s Prayer Conference, whose success has nudged the church forward in prayer. Men, women, boys and girls all unite in prayer leading up to and through the annual prayer conference.  Through Lady V’s prayer ministry the church has witnessed demons cast out, financial miracles, healings, and the release of our current church building.  She has written over 100 prayer text devotionals that are being compiled into a book.  This powerful woman of God is an ambassador for Christ for this season.  We know that she has an ear to hear from the Lord, and ask for your prayers as she delivers what God has birthed to you through her prayer closet.
