First Lady, Minister Donna Griffin is Overseer and Founder of Truth In The Word Ministries, a ministry to encourage healing in the hearts of men & women through the true and living Word of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and to create an atmosphere of self-confidence and self-worth. Truth In The Word Ministries is a ministry based solely upon the Word of God. The ministry started in January 2010 for hurting and abused women. God spoke to the heart of First Lady Minister Donna Griffin and told her that men hurt too! Truth In The Word Ministries became a ministry for both men and women in 2014, “healing the hearts of men and women.”

As an overcomer of childhood and adult sexual molestation; the loss of her twin sister, mother and older sister, brother and niece who was killed in a tragic accident in 2015 and also a cancer survivor, knows the shame, pain and hurt that makes you want to give up.

Min. Griffin currently works as a Human Resource Specialists for the Federal Government at the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Training Center and is a graduate of The Ohio State University. Min. Griffin was called to the ministry in 2002 just after her mother passed away.

Min. Griffin is a virtuous woman of God who loves God with her whole heart, mind, body and soul and hates the devil. After the loss of her twin sister Darla, she made God the sole source of her being. She wants everyone to know that “through faith in God, all things are possible to those that believe.” In spite of her losses, she blesses the Lord at all times and continues to keep praises of God in her mouth because of what God has done for her! (Psalms 34:1) Min.
