Anyone who knows Lester has been touched by his humble heart, fun-loving humor, and gentle demeanor. He has had many rich experiences in ministry, including pioneering a church in Haiti that is still thriving to this day. He has preached overseas, served as the director of World Outreach of Toledo, served as associate pastor at several churches, and also served previously as the lead pastor and pioneer of a church here in Michigan.
Many things at Accelerate are organized better and growing because of the work Lester does and the abilities he brings. He also has a strong desire to help people grow and be free from anything that would hinder them from being successful in life, as evidenced by his creatively visual messages, his passionate spirit, and his deep connection with the Lord.
