Deedra Linder has been privileged to engage in more than seventeen years of full-time ministry as a music director, evangelist’s wife, member of pastoral staff, speaker, and in her current role as Pastor’s Wife of Grace Apostolic Church in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. She has been married to Robert Linder since March 1993, and they have a beautiful, above-average daughter named Emalie. When the Linder family is not nestled safe and snug in their peaceful home, they love to add stamps to their passports! They have had the tremendous privilege to minister to churches, youth groups, and at youth camps and conventions throughout the U.S. and Canada and in Italy, Germany, Austria, France, and Sri Lanka. Deedra has a passion for ministering to ladies and young ladies, helping them fall in love with Jesus and with living a victorious Christian lifestyle.
Deedra has earned a BA in Music from Jackson College of Ministries, a BS in Religious Education from Great Lakes University, and a MS in Educational Administration from Pensacola Christian College. In addition to church ministry, she has written a number of magazine articles for ladies and essays on education topics, taught English, math, and Spanish, operated a private piano/voice studio, and sang on several choir projects as well as recorded a solo project, “No Room For Compromise.”
Deedra’s hobbies include reading, sleeping, learning foreign languages, traveling, and “hanging out” at home with her family
