Meet Our Pastor
Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.
Hebrews 13:7
Dr. Mayes has been active in Prison Outreach, Tent Ministries, Women’s Ministries and is founder of her own HOPE INTERNATIONAL MINSTIES. Following a heart wrenching missionary trip to Ghana West Africa in 1999 she returned home to co–found Mission 2000-An African Relief Project. This organization has provided food for natives and financial support to ministries for the last 17 years. 

Dr. Mayes has always been passionate about the youth of this generation and has a very vibrant Youth Department at her current church. But to continue her outreach efforts she is the Executive Director of the North Broad Youth Center where she along with her team of leaders and volunteers supports and empowers youth in our area with a daily after school and mentoring program.  
Dr. Mayes’ desire is to reach out and encourage individuals to move beyond their past and present problems and realize that as long as there is life, there is HOPE.
