Our Pastors


Senior Pastor Kenneth Levingston grew up in a small town in northern Louisiana. His mother moved him and his sister to Fifth Ward, in Houston, when he was 12 years old. He was shaped by the love of Christ and a caring community. Over the past 35 years, Pastor Levingston has pastored congregations in rural, urban, suburban, and multicultural settings. He believes and teaches the word of God in a manner that is relevant and challenges the hearer to live like they belong to Jesus. He is passionate about “following Jesus and doing what Jesus did.” Pastor Levingston’s life reflects his belief that living a “higher way” means submitting one’s self to love and service to others.
