L. Paul Lawson, PhD (Notary Public)

Lead Pastor

I am honored to serve this church.  I am a native-born Jamaican with roots in Pentecostal, Wesleyan and Liberation Theology church traditions. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I am very passionate about confronting the forces of oppression and victimization, and leading in the search for God in an age of secularism. A devoted husband and father, I spend most of my spare time in genealogy, cooking, and relaxing with reggae music. As an avid student of history and culture, I believe that the church needs to regain its credibility and relevance in society, not only because of her imperfections, but also because of her inability to relate to those who are voiceless and her unwillingness to apologize for her role in the demise of the ‘least of these.’
