Pastors Alan and Debra SmithSenior Pastors
Pastor Alan Smith, senior pastors of New Covenant International Christian Center, is a PK (preacher’s kid by birth) but was always destined for ministry from birth. They are respected spiritual leaders, and humanitarian, dedicated to creating and providing programs, resources, and services to help the less fortunate.
An anointed preacher and teacher, he draws on his own failures and shortcomings to deliver God’s Word. Pastor Alan has a genuine love for God’s people and uses that love and his comical personality and experiences from his upbringing to illustrate teachings with real-life application. A visionary and shepherd, Pastor Alan encourages the hopeless with messages that are inspirational, timely and relevant.
Pastor Debra is a God’s lady in every sense of the word. Pastoring alongside her husband, she exemplifies grace as she does it and remains faithful to the call that God has ordained. She embraces the congregation and those in need with the love of Christ. Anointed to preach, teach, exhort, and a special love for intercession, her heart is to see the power and presence of God manifested in the lives of His people.
Together, they are committed to winning souls for Christ. They long to see things happen in the lives of believers what others say is NOT possible….marriages restored, families healed and another generation begins to rise up through the power of Almighty God!
They believe that this will happen only as believer’s hearts are turned to the complete, absolute Word of God and their lives are empowered by the Holy Spirit.
