Our Team

Victoria Crozier has two children, she has lived in Charleston, S.C. most of her life. The Lord has blessed her in many ways; one of which is opening the door for her to be able to work from home in order to homeschool her children. Her career has been in cosmetology for 22 years. She loves to create beautiful hair and stimulate a desire in others to see themselves as God sees them!

"The passion the Lord has placed in my heart for The Gathering Place is for prayer counseling. The heart I have to see women restored by God’s Spirit, and His Word, propels me to be a part of such a place. I have also been a recipient of the edification of the “body of Christ” in which The Gathering Place desires to minister to others who need respite in the midst of walking out the call of God on their lives."

Carla Alford joined the ministry of The Gathering Place in 2015. She had the privilege of traveling to Mali in 2016 to visit friends serving as missionaries there. The experience of participating in missions has given her a clearer understanding of God’s heart for the lost. She witnessed the opportunities and obstacles missionaries face daily.

God has given Carla a passion to pray for people. She has been able to use her experience in Mali coupled with some training from the Lowcountry Biblical Counseling Center and other resources in ministry at The Gathering Place. Her heart is to encourage others to be all God has created them to be.
