First Lady


Courtney Lynn Harris is a native of Louisville, Kentucky. She was raised in a Christian home by parents Chauncey Carthan and Danita Dillard and accepted Christ into her life at a young age. Growing up as a child of a U.S. Army service member she developed an early awareness and appreciation for diversity, which fueled her love of people from all backgrounds. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from the University of Louisville and completed further graduate studies at the University of Dallas where she earned her Master’s in Business Administration. She has traveled the globe and loves photography along with other artistic mediums.

Lady Harris has faithfully served in the Lord’s church as the primary instructor for the Kidz Zone Ministry of the First Baptist Church of Mathews, VA as well as the President of the Women’s Ministry and Director of the Media and Technology Ministry at the St. Timothy Missionary Baptist Church of Cleveland, Ohio. Outside of ministry she is currently the Marketing Director for Brightside Academy Ohio and the owner of Through My Lynnz Media. She is also a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Lady Harris is the loving and supportive wife of the Rev. Dr. Joshua A. Harris Sr., newly elected Pastor of the 1st G Church of Louisville, KY. They are the proud parents of one son, Joshua Antoine Harris, Jr. who she affectionately calls “Boopy”.

Lady Harris looks to God’s word for guidance and wisdom in her daily life. Among her favorite scriptures is Jeremiah 29:11. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” 

Lady Harris is excited to join her husband at 1st G and looks forward to seeing how the Lord will continue to use her in service.
