Pastor Wright truly has a shepherd's heart. He's been faithful in pastoring, teaching and guiding his "sheep" for over 33 years. His knowledge of God's Word is insurmountable as he spends hours in study and prayer. Our pastor desires that all of his people be students of the Word, with each walking in his or her calling(s). The early church in the book of Acts is the framework for his church, built upon the foundation of Yeshua the Messiah. Years ago God gave Pastor Wright a vision of Lily of the Valley Evangel Church being a "lighthouse on the corner" in the city of Martinsburg. He and his wife, Sharon, have worked tirelessly toward bringing forth that vision. God has strengthened them every step of the way. Pastor Wright is not only dedicated to his church, but also to his community. He serves and/or leads in numerous organizations, thus, has gained great respect in the community. Our pastor truly has a servant's heart and has taught his congregation well. We are blessed to have such a Godly leader shepherding us toward spiritual maturity.
Minister Sharon, Pastor Wright's wife, is a perfect example of a true, biblical helpmate to her husband. She exemplifies how a Godly woman should live: and, she is beautiful both inside and out! Her compassion toward her congregation is unending. Even though she has a gentle, humble spirit, she is also gifted with strong leadership skills. Most of all, though, she loves the Lord and is not ashamed to praise him! L.O.V.E. Church is truly blessed to have Minister Sharon's love and spiritual maturity to guide us.
Minister Taylor is an excellent role model to everyone in the church... especially the young people. They flock to him! The evidence of his impartation into their lives is clear. His example is not only in word, but more importantly in how he lives and emulates the love and wisdom of God. He has a passion to preach the Word and does it well. God has also gifted him with rhythm AND a great, BIG smile! As a part of the praise team, his heart of praise is revealed as he "makes a joyful noise unto the Lord" on his drums. What a blessing he is!
