Deirdre L. Martin is the Chief Executive Officer of Assisting Virtually, LLC. Assisting Virtually specializes in executive administrative support for churches, ministries and non-profit organizations throughout the United States. The company was birthed through a vision to provide five-star excellence to the men and women of God who have been called to serve others.
With over 30 years experience in the corporate and religious sectors, Ms. Martin has previously held the positions of Executive Secretary, Desktop Publisher, Newsletter Editor, Internet Researcher and Confidante to the Senior Pastors of several high profile churches throughout the country. Her core message has been and continues to be one of high productivity, efficiency, and nurturing critical relationships.
As the granddaughter of well respected Central New Jersey Pastor, the late Rev. L. Walter Crews, Jr., (Second Baptist Church, Metuchen, NJ), Ms. Martin was raised in the church since birth. She was even called at the tender age of fourteen to take over as the Church Clerk at the Gateway Baptist Church in Gastonia, NC. She was the youngest person in the church’s history to ever serve in that capacity. This divinely ordained position turned out to be the beginning of her lifelong journey in using her administrative gifts.
Born in Gastonia, NC, Ms. Martin relocated in 1986 to New Jersey in search of employment and to be near her close-knit family. She currently resides in Plainfield, NJ where she is an active member of Calvary Baptist Church.
