 Ola Mae Nixon was born on June 29, 1925. She was the youngest daughter of (11) children born to the late Ned and Amanda Moore. Ola Mae received her formal education in Americus, Georgia (Sumter County). When she was twenty years old she met a young man named R.J. (Ira) Nixon also known as "Jake". On July 2, 1946, Jake and Ola Mae were united in Holy Matrimony and from that union they had two daughters, Rosezena Nixon and Cynthia Ann Nixon.

 

 Ola Mae and her husband Jake moved to New Jersey looking for greater career opportunities. Jake became a steel worker and Ola Mae pursued a career in Beauty Culture. She attended Madam Scott's Beauty Culture School on High Street in Newark, New Jersey. After she graduated from Scott she found a job in Millburn, NJ working at Vin Ed's Beauty Salon and was there for many years. In the early 70's she also worked for Martin and Vivian Levins in South Orange, NJ until she relocated to Georgia

 

Ola loved her family and she always was willing to make sacrifices to keep her family happy. After her husband passed away she continued to work hard to support her family until she decided to go back home to Georgia to take care of older sister, the late Louis Williams. When she returned to Georgia she was employed as a live in Home Health Care aide. She was very compassionate towards the sick and disabled. She enjoyed caring for her patients and she did it with such love and patience.

Ola Mae was a woman of God. She had given her life to Christ many years ago and was determined to live a faithful and holy life. She was called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to evangelize. During her stay in Newark, NJ she was the Pastor of the New Testament Pentecostal Church for several years. She amazingly impacted the lives of her members in the ministry as well as in the community through the power of the Gospel. She had a phenomenal relationship with God, she was anointed and full of the Holy Ghost. God used her mightily in the prophetic ministry and she was indeed a prayer warrior and loved to praise God. Ola enjoyed dancing in the presence God because the joy of the Lord was her strength. She really loved people and was always willing to help someone. She did not hesitate to show love to the poor and needy and through her ministry many souls were saved and delivered. She was a humble and faithful servant in the Kingdom of God. Ola Mae was Co-Pastor with Pastor Scott at the New Birth Church in Americus, Georgia and she also served in ministry under Pastor Mathis and later served under Pastor Mercer.
