Ms. Alma Jean Duckworth was born on January 2, 1940 to the  parentage of the late Mr. Eddie      Duckworth and Mrs. Alma Cinderella Henderson Duckworth.

She was joined in holy matrimony to the late Mr.  Albert May, Jr. where they raised Janet, Jeffrey and Michael.

Pastor May was saved and filled with the Holy Ghost at the Community Church of Jesus in Bartow, Georgia in the late 1970’s and her life was turned around by The Lord Jesus Christ.

She received her formal education in the Washington County Public School System. She also attended Georgia College at Milledgeville  and Georgia Military College. She worked as a sales associate for The Ladies Vogue for many years.

Pastor May and her family joined her son, Apostle Dr. Clifford Duckworth on February 5, 1982 to start a new ministry, at the call of God, Redeemed Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Harrison, Georgia. She served in women’s ministry, foundations teacher, bible study teacher and deliverance ministries. She later served as Pastor of Kingdom Life Fellowship Ministries in Harrison, Georgia.

Pastor May received the call to evangelize and she began her journey to win souls for the Kingdom of God. The first family that she reached out to and won was the family of Mr. Fred and Mrs. Helen Brookins. From that effort other members of the Brookins family were saved.
