Pastor of the Month

Elder Forrest A. Fykes I

From Humble Beginnings


Pastor Fykes, Sr., was baptized at the Greater Bethlehem Temple Church of Inglewood on May 2, 1982. He received the gift of the Holy Ghost in July of 1982 under the leadership of Bishop Winston L. Singleton, Sr. In 1984, he was called to the ministry. His obedience enhanced the manifestation of his spiritual gifts in service at Greater Bethlehem Temple Church until May 1996. In June 1996, he was elevated as an elder at the Christ Temple Apostolic Church of Los Angeles under the leadership of Pastor Lewis D. Stallworth III. He served as Associate Pastor and a board member from 1997 - 1999.

The Growing Flock


His passion for outreach was apparent as he faithfully conducted in-home Bible classes with his wife, throughout the greater Los Angeles. In June 1999, he founded The GREATER WORKS Apostolic Outreach Ministry, authorized by the late Bishop Lewis D. Stallworth, Sr. and recognized by the Pentecostal Churches of the Apostolic Faith (PCAF), as an incorporated small church. Pastor Forrest A. Fykes was ordained at the PCAF National Convention in Indianapolis in August 2000. Since that time, he and his wife have conducted marriage seminars across the country, including at the national conventions hosted by the PCAF.
