Pastor

Rev. Harold Poindexter Sr.

Reverend Harold Poindexter Sr.

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

      I came to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior at the age of twenty-three and joined the family church, Antioch Baptist Church, Youngstown, Ohio. My wife and I have been married for forty-seven years. God has blessed us with three children.

     I am grateful and give thanks to God, who has given me the opportunity to prepare myself for the ministry, which he has called me. I also sincerely believe if God has prepared me for the ministry he has a place for me to serve. Plus I believe the pastor must live what he teach and preach, equip God's people for the work of the ministry, and win the lost to Christ. The pastor and the church must continue to grow in the knowledge, and the love, and the grace of God.
