~In God he Trust~
REVEREND DR. SETH O. LARTEY
On Aug. 3, 1976, Lartey, who was 20, experienced what he calls “a transformative moment.” He and a friend had cut class, and while standing in the living room of another friend’s home, Lartey says he saw the Lord.
“That moment I saw myself as though standing before God on the day of judgment, and when I looked at my life, I was not ready,” Lartey said. “That was the transformative moment for me.”
Immediately, he cut ties to his partying friends, forgoing nights out in social clubs. “The inclination I had from that day on was more of telling people about God, showing people the way of God, teaching people how to live for God. That was all my desire. For me everything was, ‘How do you make people better by knowing God?’ ”
Eventually, Lartey received a scholarship to come to the United States to attend Livingstone College in Salisbury, N.C. There, while serving as student body president, he met Jacqueline Williams, a North Carolina native who remembers her future husband as a hard worker and a gentleman.
“Friendship led to courtship. Courtship led to marriage,” Jacqueline says. After graduating, Lartey earned a scholarship to study at Duke Divinity School, where he earned a master of religious education.
Today, the couple has three young children: Solomon, Alicia and Victoria.
