Pastor Firmin Louis
From Pastor Firmin: My wife and I have been married since July 17th 1992. We are blessed with 6 children. I was saved in 1991, but was not really committed to God. My wife was already under the umbrella of God. Four years later I felt the need to grow closer to God. That prompting led me to a Bible school in Jamaica. Though it was very challenging, God provided not only for me but for my wife and two of our kids from 1996 to 1998. It was a tremendous experience. There we learned what it means to live by faith, with literally no human support. God has met our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!! After graduation we came back with a mission: “Promoting the kingdom and the righteousness of God in the hearts of men.” Thus, New Destiny In Christ Ministry came into existence. Now we are leading the Blessings Christian Church and have founded the Children’s New Destiny Foundation Home.
Herbert serves as Bread to the Nations Financial Accountability partner. He has leadership experience working with large NGOs in Haiti and brings expertise in business planning and entrepreneur training to his role with BttN. We are excited to see how God will use Herbert and his gifts to help the kids in the Children’s Home pursue their dreams and to partner with BttN to empower and equip families in Firmin’s church to help build up the church in Haiti. Herbert is also a gifted teacher of the Word and loves the Lord.
