"Where You Will Be Delivered"

Our Pastor

Suffragan Bishop Rickey Lewis was born in Brewton, Alabama to the late Willie and Vera Lewis. The youngest of four children, he was raised by his Aunt Lula in Pascagoula, Mississippi. He is married to Deborah Lewis. 

In 1995 he acknowledged his call into the ministry. He was somewhat reluctant to answer the call, but he did. God truly blessed him when he preached his first message at New Hope Pentecostal Church entitled, “On a Mission to Please God”.   

In 2006, he began teaching bible class at Gethsemane Church of Jesus Christ; and on April 26, 2008 was installed as Pastor by Bishop Theodore Brooks Sr.

On June 6, 2008, he was ordained as Pastor with the Pentecostal Assemblies of World Inc. Pastor Lewis was elevated to District Elder in 2015 and has been on a mission to "Work until God Comes". It was this motivation to be an active worker in the vineyard which led to him being elevated to the position of Suffragan Bishop at the fall sitting of the Connecticut District Council.

God has called this anointed man to preach the gospel for such a time as this!
