"Church has always been my life."

“Church has always been my life” says Wesley, “I grew up in church.” His father Ken and mother Lillian are the founding pastors of Fayetteville Community Church. Wesley says, “I was singing in revival meetings with my Dad when I was two years old.”

Wesley and his wife Teresa have been working in the church music ministry for 28 years. During this time, he has been the Worship leader and choir director at Fayetteville Community Church. In June of 2009, Wesley was installed as Senior Pastor. He says, “I feel like all the years working with musicians and singers really helped prepare me for pastoring the church. It is the scariest thing I have ever done… the responsibility is enormous. Every time I step in the pulpit I wonder if someone is hearing the gospel for the last time and I want to get it into their heart what the Lord would have me to say.”

“Since I can remember, I have always been involved with Gospel music,” Wesley says. He has engineered sound at the National Quartet Convention, the Canadian Gospel Music Festival, and The Great Western Fan Festival in California.  He has a broad knowledge of the intricacies of harmonies and the blend of, as he says, “good ole’ Gospel music”.
