Pastor Michelle states that she is called “… to the Body of Christ rather than to a denomination …” and her God-given vision is to help the Body of Christ and the peoples of the nations understand how the Word of God can be applied to their lives so that they can receive the fullness of what God has for them. She is driven by the Word, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” as in Hosea 4: 6. Her determination is to ensure that the people of God understand who they are in Christ and to let them know how important it is not to accept mediocrity in any form.
Though she grew up in the Methodist Church, and comes from a family of Lay Persons, Preachers, Teachers and Singers, she answered the call to ministry while working as a manager within one of the largest group of companies in that country. She states that her parents, who continue to serve in the Methodist Church and who are also retired Educators “… were the first ones to teach [her] the value and importance of being faithful in the House of the Lord, loyalty and commitment to God and Family, Education, walking in Integrity and striving for excellence …” Since her answer to the call of Ministry, she has since been trained in several other areas of Ministry.
Pastor Michelle, the first of three (3) children and is married to Apostle Steve Lyston, a man she says she has admired and respected since the day they met and loves with all her heart. Like her husband, Pastor Michelle believes that accountability and order must return to the Body of Christ, and the people of God must be edified to the Glory of God!
