Meet our Pastor and first Lady

Pastor Jermaine Luke Nelson responded to the call to preach the Gospel of Christ at the age of 17. He attended Oakwood in 2013 and received his Bachelors in Theology. It was there at Oakwood that he met his beautiful and amazing wife, the former Deanna Sturrup (pronounced De-an-ya) which the Lord gave him. They were joined in marriage on August 11th, 2017 and gave birth to their first child, Jianna Brianna-Grace Nelson on September 25th 2020. They are currently expecting their second child in November 2022!

After leaving Oakwood, Pastor Nelson was sponsored by the South Atlantic Conference of Seventh-day Adventist to attend Andrews University where he completed the Master of Divinity program the fall of this year. 

Jermaine loves Jesus and loves to be involved in ministry with Jesus. He has held evangelistic campaigns  in India, New York, Kenya, and Honduras where many gave their lives to Christ. 

Jermaine’s Ministeral Mantra comes from Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”
