From his hair raising encounter in hell, to the dream of Rhema Bible Training Center, to the instructions to go home it has always been Pastor Lewis’ desire and passion to see to lost snatched from hell and translated into the kingdom of God. It is his mandate that he mobilize the body of Christ to win souls and make disciples.
