Celeste Crenshaw is pastor of the Radical Anointing Full Gospel Missionary Baptist Church in Fort Deposit.
She also started an organization called Mind on the Mission, which brought together pastors and leaders from the area to lead by example.
When she’s not in church, she sings in foster homes, raises her 2 grandchildren, and helps others.
“I don’t know anyone who can’t say anything good about her. She’s been helping people over and over for as long as I’ve known her,” said her nominator, Monica Lacy.
For whatever Pastor Crenshaw does for those around her, Stewart Vance of the Vance Law Firm pays her back.
Crenshaw says she learned from her grandparents how to give back.
“You taught us all to help whenever you see a need. They just taught us how to give. That’s why I believe in giving back and trying to improve the lives of others,” Crenshaw said.
