Pastor Lance Lawson is a native of Philadelphia Pa. and attended the Philadelphia Public School system. As young man, Pastor Lawson made some poor choices that resulted in him serving time. While in prison, Pastor Lawson heard the voice of the Lord calling him and surrendered his life unto Jesus Christ and became a born again Christian. It was there where the Lord began to transform his life and put a burden in his heart for the souls of men. God allowed him to lead Prayer and Bible Study, Evangelize, and sing on the choir. Behind those walls, God began to call him to the ministry and placed a weeping in his spirit for the lost, wounded, hurt, down trodden, and disenfranchised. Through the Prison Ministry, Pastor Lawson also met a man of God, Bishop Michael O. Brokenborough, Senior Pastor of Household of Faith Deliverance Worship Center. Bishop Brokenborough mentored Pastor Lawson, helped him perfect in the things of God, and trained him in the fivefold ministry. Pastor Lawson was a member of Household of Faith Deliverance Worship Center for twenty-five years.
Over the years, Pastor Lawson has been faithful in his commitment to serve the Lord. He graduated from Manna Bible Institute in Pastoral and Evangelical studies. In 1998, Elder Lawson was Licensed as a Minister of the Gospel and in 2003 he was Ordained. At Household of Faith Deliverance Worship Center, Pastor Lawson previously served as Deacon, Trustee, Youth Leader, Sunday School Teacher, and Life Bible Institute Director. He served as an Elder, Evangelist, New Member’s Teacher, Leader of Outreach Ministry, and Director of both the Men’s Prison Ministry and the Multimedia Ministry. In late 2015, Pastor and Sis Shelle Lawson started Kingdom Builders Deliverance Ministries as a home Bible Study. In October 2016, the Bible Study moved to Evangel Church, with the intentions of formulating a Church.
Pastor Lance Lawson is the husband of Yvonne Shelle’ Lawson, the father of four wonderful children Lance Christopher, Joshua Elijah, Selah Renee, and Joel Emanuel. More importantly than anything, Pastor Lawson is a lover of The Lord Jesus Christ, a follower of God, a worshipper Of God, and a man whose desires to please God.
