Visionary Pastor- Teacher
Ph: 239- 214- 0809
Pastor Enel: Married Guerlène in 2003; two beautiful daughters (Zakiri and Evie).
Personal Testimony: Conversion (1987) & Baptism (1988). Interestingly, I grew up in church without having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Can you imagine it? In 1987, upon recognizing my sinfulness and need for Christ, I responded in faith to the Gospel message. Shortly thereafter, my mother and other local believers discussed my decision with me and helped to solidify my commitment to Christ who saved my life.
Calling: Very early I knew that I was called to the gospel ministry although I had no clue what that meant. During my college years, the call to ministry could not escape my mind. Nonetheless, I continued to pursue my self-centered career objectives until the summer of 2003 when I forsook everything to pursue that call. I married my wife, Guerlène, and together we went to Dallas Theological Seminary for training.
Chrisnol St Ilis
Educator. Pastor. Mentor
Born on January 4, 1984, in Haiti, Chrisnol St. Ilis was raised by a single mother because his father left Haiti for the United States since he was three years old. Growing up in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, Chris has watched his single mother of 11 kids repeatedly putting other people before herself. His mother was so committed to others, she would rather be hungry instead of letting a stranger be starved. Thus, when his mother died in 1998, she had already made a lasting impact in Chris’s life to serve others first. Witnessing firsthand how his mother had positively impacted other people’s lives, at the age of 14, Chris began to do the same by being involved in school, church, and in the community.
When Chris was 18 years old, he immigrated to the United States for a better future. Despite the setbacks of coming to the United States at such an advanced age, Chris worked hard to learn English and to earn his high school diploma to go to college. Chris went to attain a bachelor degree in business management from Sullivan University in Louisville Kentucky, and a master’s of theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, in Dallas, Texas. Now, Chris is currently working toward a doctorate degree in health education. Chris has been married to his lovely wife Rose for five years and has been serving as the youth minister of Bethel Bible Fellowship Church since 2016. Chris’s ministry verse is Isaiah 6:8 – “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (NIV).
