Reverend Lani Willbanks is an ordained pastor, serving a large church in Washington, D.C. Lani has nearly 20 years of combined marketplace and church leadership experience. Earning her MBA while working full time as a divorced, single mother of two, Lani excelled in her field of corporate finance. As her daughters neared middle school, Lani was reminded of her Wesleyan roots and fondly recalled the years she spent as a preacher’s kid. Her daughters soon became more involved with their church youth group and Lani knew God was calling her into full time ministry. It was also during this season that Lani met her husband Tyler, then a Captain in the US Army. They married in 2007 and together, have 5 world-changing children. Currently, they include two college graduates, one college student, and two active duty Soldiers. Lani and Tyler, now a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel and proud supporter of following his wife’s career, live on Capitol Hill with their rambunctious Corgi, Lilo.
