In February of 2015, after 15 years of ministry at relate church in
Byram, MS,  Les and Angela sensed God leading them to take a step
of faith: to leave their life, family and church, pull up roots and
simply trust him for their next steps. Les knew their first step was to
move to Birmingham, AL and join Church of the Highlands. Once in
Birmingham, Les enrolled into Highlands College, the ministry
training college of Church of the Highlands. Soon after, God began
to speak to Les and Angela about church planting. Without a doubt,
Les, a Jacksonville, TX native, knew they were supposed to plant a
life-giving church in the Piney Woods region of East Texas and call
it, Church of the Pines.

From that point, God began to birth the vision for Church of the
Pines in Les. He began to dream about a church that would lead
people into an “evergreen life”…a life that is full and vibrant, in
every season. In October of 2016, God showed Les and Angela it
was time to take their next step and begin the process of planting
Church of the Pines in Tyler, TX

Les and Angela have been married for 18 years and have a sweet
and fun-loving daughter named Mia.
