Life’s journey has crafted Pastor Pierre. When he was seven years old, deaconess Tasia shared a vision God gave her revealing that He would chose Francius Pierre as a shepherd for his people. He would later lead night services with his older and younger siblings. Knowing God’s plan for him, he became more devoted and took the night services more seriously. Consequently, he came to have an intimate and personal relationship with God. On April 6, 1980 he was baptized in his hometown at the Baptist Church of White Rock in St Marc which was under the leadership of Reverend Jerome Francois Xavier.
