First Lady Amanda Elizabeth Capers is the seventh daughter born out of eight girls to Mr. O.D. and Ms. Alice Stephens. She obtained her education through the Colleton School District, attending Ruffin High School, and completed sign language courses at the University of South Carolina- Salkehatchie Campus. On September 2, 1977, she was joined in holy matrimony with Episcopal Bishop Paul M. Capers, Corporate Pastor of LST Ministries. She received the gift of the Holy Ghost on July 4, 1979 and has been living for Christ ever since.

Lady Capers loves the Saints of God, “I receive so much love, support, and encouragement from the people of God, and they are so dear to me.” Accepting her husband’s position, she felt she would not like the position of a Pastor’s Wife but now realizes it is a promotion from God. Proverbs 31 states, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.”

First Lady Capers is an active asset to Lively Stone Temple Apostolic Ministries. Faithfully involved in the church, she is currently a member on the Board of Trustees, the Mother's board,former Usher Board Member, Evangelical Training Association graduate, and currently teaches the Nursery Sunday School Class. She is also Chairlady of the Ministers’ Wives Alliance and works faithfully with the Vacation Bible School activities. Overall, she is supportive in any way in up building the church. Once a shy woman, she now speaks boldly for the Lord and is a blessing each time she addresses the church for she speaks with an authority and anointing from God.
