Pastor Armand's mission is to walk out his life and faith in such a manner to please the Lord. He longs to imitate his heavenly father in speech and deed so that the name of Jesus may be glorified and that others maybe drawn to God by the realness of his presence in Armand's life. He desires to serve people into a healthy relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ. He knows that he is a very limited man and can not do this on his own strength and abilities. He values worship, prayer being central in his life, the word of God for instruction, and the Holy Spirit, who he depends on heavily to lead and equip him for the work the Lord has put before him. His ambition is to see the local church, not DO church but BE the church. Pastor Armand's vision is to see God's people, especially Bethel, be ONE with the Father, be ONE with each other, and win souls ONE by ONE.
Pastor Armand is married to his wonderful wife, Julie, who was born and raised in Kansas. They have two precious daughters, Sofia and Sydney. He was born and raised on the north side of Chicago. He started a relationship with God through Jesus at the age of 15. He graduated from Central Bible College and has been in full time ministry since 1997. He became the Lead Pastor of Bethel Assembly of God on Easter Sunday 2011. Armand knows God is doing a "new thing" (Isa. 43:18,19) in Bethel, the city of Elmhurst, and the surrounding cities and villages. Let's do it with Him and together.
