BIOGRAPHY OF REV. ANA-ALICEIA BOYD-BLAIR, M.ED

A prolific teacher and preacher, Rev. Ana- Aliceia Boyd-Blair was born to the union of Raleigh Boyd Jr. and Gloria Warren. She has traveled the country extensively providing others with messages of hope and salvation. She believes as Mark 16:15 states, “He said to them, go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Ana was born and raised in Andrews, South Carolina. She began her journey of knowing and serving Jesus Christ at a young age.

At the tender age of only five, she felt the desire to dedicate her life to Christ. Ecclesiastes 12:1 states: “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth;” this is exactly what she did as a child. Ana was baptized at Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church of Andrews, South Carolina under the pastoral leadership of Dr. Eddie Gamble Jr. During her early childhood years, Ana developed a curiosity about the meaning and purpose of the human life. At nine years old, while still in elementary school, she began having dreams telling her to go and preach the Gospel.

In November of 2014, Ana Boyd and the late Mr. Quinten Blair united in Holy Matrimony. The ceremony was held in Cades, South Carolina of Williamsburg County and was officiated by Rev. Barney Heyward of Andrews, South Carolina, and Pastor Woodrow Nesbitt of Georgetown, South Carolina. From this union, the two shared one son, Quinten James Blair Jr. Following their union, the couple established their lives in Augusta, GA. In May of 2015, the couple joined Good Shepherd Missionary Baptist Church of Augusta, Georgia under the pastoral leadership of Dr. Clarence Moore. She served as a daughter at Good Shepherd Missionary Baptist Church.

Being only a child, Ana did not understand; therefore, she fasted and prayed for two months. During this time, she asked God for clarity. The will of God became clear to her. On December 26, 1999, she preached her first sermon at Weldon Hill Missionary Baptist Church of Andrews, South Carolina under the pastoral leadership of the late Rev. Thomas S. Lance. Ana went on to serve as a licentiate minister at Weldon Hill Missionary Baptist Church for fifteen years. This time preceded the passing of her spiritual father and pastor, Rev. Thomas S. Lance. She continued to evangelize under the leadership of Rev. William Boyd Jr.

While serving not only her local church, but also traveling the country, Ana earned a Master of Arts In Education from Concordia University (2016), her Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from the University of South Carolina Aiken (2011), and an Associate of Arts from Denmark Technical College (2009). She currently serves as an alumna of Denmark Technical College as well as the University of South Carolina Aiken and Concordia University.

On September 6, 2020, Rev. Ana- Aliceia Boyd-Blair became a member of Greater St. Stephens African Methodist Episcopal Church of Georgetown, South Carolina under the leadership of Pastor. Dr. Carl L. Anderson. Currently, Ana has served unwaveringly in ministry for over twenty-two years. She is certainly a prodigy of great wisdom and faith, and the empowerment of evangelism is upon her life. After experiencing over twenty-one years of evangelism, she continues to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She lives her life according to Colossians 3:17, “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” She has authored various book titles such as: The Art of Being A Woman, Memoirs of A Widow, and With My Hands Lifted High Worship Journal.
