Meet The Leadership

Kelvin Lumpkin

Senior Pastor

Having been raised in a family of men and women dedicated to Christian ministry in various capacities, Pastor Lumpkin felt from a young age that he was destined to follow in their footsteps.

At just 25, he left his safe career and accepted God’s calling on his life. Stepping out on faith, Pastor Lumpkin founded the Abundant Life Christian Center in 1999. In 2010, the church merged with Bethesda Word of Faith Church to form Light of the World Sarasota.

When he’s not immersed in his duties as Senior Pastor, Kelvin Lumpkin enjoys spending time building memories with his Wife Dali and their two daughters as well as eagerly serving in the local community.
