Jesse & LaRonda England
As a Pastor my vision has always been in ministering to the whole family. To preach and teach the truth of God’s word, seeing it applied to ones everyday life. To see hearts mended, lives changed, families restored and relationships with God established. I am committed to helping others experience His love, to nurturing their spiritual development, to enabling them to discover their spiritual gifts, and to equipping them for effective ministry.
Having been fortunate enough to have Christian parent’s active in the church and demonstrative in their faith, I came to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior at an early age. I can remember as a young boy while participating in the junior choir, being slain in the spirit and receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost. It was in those early years that God began to direct my life, through my Pastor, sunday school teachers, youth leaders and even the choir director. I can distinctly remember the day that God clearly spoke to my heart about surrendering all to Him. As I knelt at that little four foot pew, pouring my heart out to God it was then I knew my life was not my own, and would never be the same.
Accepting the call initially into youth ministry, my wife and I became Children’s Church directors, and eventually served as Youth Pastors for many years. Then in the spring of 2004 while serving as Youth Pastors, God began to move my heart in a new direction. He was relentless. Finally after months of seeking for God’s direction in September 2004 we were installed here at Living Word Family Worship center, as the senior Pastors where we continue to serve.
