First Lady, Dr. Chandra Bell

The Triumphant Church of God family mourns the passing of our beloved First Lady, Dr. Chandra Bell. Lady Chandra was greatly loved by her family and her church family. Her grace and sophistacation was an example for all who had the pleasure of meeting her. She truly loved the Lord and served Him with all of her heart.

D in Higher Education Administration from Ohio University. She served as the Director of Career Services and an adjunct instructor at Columbus State Community College.
