Pastor D. Earl Lewis became the Senior Pastor of the Oak Grove Church family in November 2003. He earned a Bachelor's of Science in Christian Leadership at the College Of Biblical Studies. His academic passion for the word lead him to earn both a Master of Theology and Master of Religious Education from Liberty University Theological Seminary. He is the former Dean of Students and Director of Student Affairs at the College of Biblical Studies, where he currently serves as an Adjunct Professor.
Pastor Lewis is a personable gifted preacher/teacher, with a passion for biblical leadership. Recognized by peers as an excellent expositional orator of the "Word", his gifts has afforded him the opportunity to preach throughout the U.S., Europe and the Caribbean Islands. His voice can be heard weekly on 105.7 FM with Powerwalk Ministries.
Pastor "DEL", as he is called by members, has led the church through two major renovation projects and the acquisition of six acres of land adjacent to the present campus, with a vision of the church becoming a "Campus for the Community". Pastor Lewis' experience as a midlevel manager in Corporate America, prior to accepting the call to ministry, has enabled him to initiate a corporate structure that carries out the business of the "Grove" that supports ministry growth and meets the State and Federal requirements for a non-profit religious organization.
His proudest attributes are his lovely wife Susan, their 3 children; Kirstie, Jordan and Caleb and shepherding the flock of the Oak Grove family!
