Ford, Sr. Lady Gail Little worked in corporate America for several years however in her last few years of employment she found fulfillment in molding the minds of children in the childcare profession.

Through much prayer and dialogue with Lady Gail, his family, and close friends, Suffragan Bishop Little, along with Lady Gail decided to accept the position as Senior Pastor of Christ Temple Church of Hopkinsville, Kentucky. He and Lady Gail began making the five hour round trip commute from Louisville, Kentucky to Hopkinsville, Kentucky each Sunday, and some Wednesdays (Pre-COVID-19) to tend to the flock. It was quickly determined in order to be effective in ministry and more hands on Lady Gail and Suffragan Bishop Little relocated to the Hopkinsville Ky/Clarksville TN area to be closer to and serve the flock.
