Wounded Healers Conference 2017 Participants & Bio's
Pastor Smith currently is the Pastor of Bethel CME Church in Beckville and serves as the East Texas Region’s Director of the Board of Evangelism as well the worship leader for the Longview-Marshall District. He has his Associate’s Degree in Business from Ashford University of Clinton, Iowa and is a co-founder of Hedge Financial Group located in Tyler, TX.
Pastor Smith has been married to his lovely wife Regina Smith for 17 years and their lives are founded on two things, which are faith and family. Their faith of course lies with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who has brought them through many adverse situations and circumstances. Excluding Jesus, their joy is found within their children, Deyanta (21), Jordan (19), and Caleb (12). Not to be overlooked, in June of 2013, that joy expanded even the more when they took on the responsibility of raising three of their nephews, due to extenuating circumstances in their family; Trevor (19), Jasyiah (17), and Drake (17). It goes without saying; this dynamic duo has not missed a beat and continuously exemplifies what family is and ought to be.
In the words of Pastor Smith, if he had to summarize what ministry means to him…he could be quoted using these words: “Ministry is a gift from God that I value to the utmost. It is nothing that can be obtained by reading a book, but it is something that has to be experienced. The pure fact of the matter is ministry is my life and my life belongs to God, so therefore, so does my ministry.”
