Lead Pastors

Rev. Gerald & Brenda Waite 

Gerald and Brenda Waite have served as lead pastors here at Faith Assembly for 40 years. They are dedicated to the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pastor Waite is very much a Bible-driven minister who preaches the Word of God with truth, conviction and hope in Jesus Christ. He values a Pentecostal, Spirit-led atmosphere in church life, and delivers straight-forward messages which can easily be applied to our every day lives. During his spare time, Pastor enjoys a nice game of golf, although some golf games may actually drive him crazy. His wife, Brenda Waite, is very passionate about seeing lives changed by God, and she is a living example of what it means to be a prayer-warrior. Pastor Gerald and Brenda also spend time working the harvest through several yearly missions-trips. They are very burdened for the lost of this world and bring forth a great deal of focus to this vital fundamental of Christian purpose. Their deep desire is to make true, life-long disciples of Jesus Christ.
