Pastor Edward Lightfoot’s Philosophy of Pastoral Ministry. Pastor Lightfoot states that the Holy Bible guides his source of truth and doctrine. His philosophy of ministry is to love God with all his heart and soul and be obedient to all His ways, to love his family whom God has blessed him with, to serve the Church of Jesus Christ for this present age and to shepherd and protect the flock, serve and seek that which is lost according to His divine purpose. As Pastor E. V. Lightfoot traveled during military service, he continued to serve the Church of Jesus Christ wherever stationed. He joined Marlboro Heights Baptist Church in Killeen, Texas. In Wurzburg, Germany he served under Chaplain Harvey where he taught Sunday School and sang in the Choir.

He also has a Certificate of Ordination and a Certificate of Minister’s License. He previously worked at the United States Postal Service as a U. S. Letter Carrier and served in the United States Army with Honorable Discharge.
