Pastor Byron & Lashona  Hypolite

Pastor Byron and Lashona Hypolite are both lifelong residents of south Louisiana. Both have a deep & fiery passion for the Lord and for souls for whom he died.

Raised on the foundation of truth, Byron drifted away into the world as a pre teen, until he finally obeyed the Lord's call to come into His Kingdom. After having a drastic out of body experience & vision of the next world, he cold turkey left a hip hop career that he invested much into in order to follow the Lord. 


Several years later he & Lashona met at church where she came searching for a deeper experience with God. Soon, she became born again, they were married, and she entered into nursing school.


As God called them to plant the church, she sought the Lord for direction and gave up a career in nursing to assist & follow her husband. She has been and is such a blessing to him in far too many ways to count.

Today they are blessed to experience the joy and beauty of their two wonderful children.

And blessed to serve the people of Disciples Of Christ Jesus St. Martinville! And all who the Lord places in their path!
