Pastor Lenora Alston has been working in the vineyard of the Lord for over 40 years.
She was saved and baptized at the age of 12 at Noah’s Ark Missionary Baptist Church in Charleston, S.C. She served in the youth ministry on the youth choir and Sunday School until she relocated to Atlanta, GA in 1977.
She became a member of New Chapel Baptist Church, Scottsdale, GA under the pastoral leadership of Rev. Hubert Hamilton. There she served as a Sunday school teacher, youth advisor, choir member and ordained as a missionary and served in the capacity of Missionary President. She worked in this vineyard for 5 years until the Lord directed her to Riverside Baptist Church in Decatur, GA. Riverside was one of two African-American Southern Baptist churches in the Atlanta Area. She served under the leadership of Rev. John Tatum for 6 years as Adult Sunday School Teacher, sung on the choir and enjoyed being a part of the Women’s ministry there.
She relocated to Charleston in 1991 and immediately rejoined her home church where she taught Sunday School, sung on the Choir, was a member and President of the Missionary Ministry. She also helped in the revamping of the Women’s Ministry where she also served as president. Pastor Alston was active with the youth and was the financial secretary for the church for many years. She loved the children and would work with others to ensure the children got opportunities to experience things and orchestrated many trips out of town. She served as youth advisor and was a member of the Evangelist Ministry of the Cooper River Baptist Association.
After finally heeding to the call of the Savior, she was licensed to preach in 2001 under the Pastoral leadership of Rev. Leonard Moore. In 2003, she received her Ordination under the Cooper River Baptist Association at Noah’s Ark Baptist Church. She was appointed assistant pastor of Noah’s Ark in 2004, and served in that capacity until 2009, when the Lord gave her new marching orders to begin a Ministry where there would be room for all. Rehoboth Full Gospel Church was founded in March 2010 and has been growing strong in the Lord ever since.
Pastor Alston completed 2 years of Theology with the International Seminary. She is currently attending ACTS in pursuit of her Bachelor’s in Theology.
She has been married to her wonderful husband John for the past 16 years. They have 5 children, 1 daughter-in-law (more like a daughter), 11
grandchildren (soon to be 12!), and many spiritual daughters and sons. Pastor Alston is known as a very serious person but loves to play pranks when in the mood to get a laugh. She is known as a kind hearted person who will give you the shirt off her back and never tires in helping others.
Saved by His grace, Pastor Lenora Alston
