Among the many festivities of our Annual Dinner, we paid tribute to our senior pastor, Dr. Lester Ayars, for his 45 years of service as our pastor and to his wife, Diane, who has shared in the ministry these many years, at his side.
“As I took the pulpit back in January 1968, Diane and I knew we would be in for a wonderful journey—we didn’t realize that journey would be 45 years and counting!” said Ayars. The past 45 years have seen tremendous growth which has led to many new ministries being formed, building expansions and now two additional church campuses.
When asked about what’s next for his ministry, Pastor Ayars said, “ Though it’s been 45 years, investing in people and seeing lives change never gets old. We are excited about the ongoing opportunity to serve this great Island, now from multiple locations with the Good News of Jesus Christ.”
