Following years of preparation, faithfulness, and dedicated service, God called pastor Trevor St. Aubyn Parris to plant a church in Elmont, New York. His pastor at that time, Bishop John Bishop Cummings, blessed him and released him and sent him off with four families to assist him.
Pastor Parris then embarked on his own ministry and founded Nassau Tabernacle of Praise in January 2001. The ministry continues to thrive and grow. Nassau Tabernacle has since acquired land and property and will soon break ground on its new sanctuary.
An effective communicator of God’s Word, Pastor Parris is known for his practical and dynamic teaching style which helps people apply the timeless truths of Scripture to their everyday lives. He’s also the author of “Rebuilding the Altar of Your Lives”.
He and his wife, Jewel, have been married since 1990. His wife is a formidable partner in ministry and they are the proud parents of three adult children (Adesafi, Timon and Ariel) whose respective gifts are a blessing to his work and ministry.
