Pastor Hester

Senior Pastor

Pastor Krejchi Hester, was raised by his Mother and Grandmother in the Kashmere Gardens area of Houston, Texas where he was a member of Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. C.L. Punch.  Pastor Hester received his calling at the age of 16 but did not answer his calling until the age of 25 at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Huntsville, Texas under the leadership of Pastor Kenneth Levingston.

 Pastor Krejchi Hester has been the Lead Pastor at St. Paul Community Church in Spring, Texas for 18 years.

 Pastor Hester is a true man of God and leads by example when it comes to family and those he loves. His wife of 24 years, Deborah is a Registered Nurse at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas and the owner operator of Sam Houston Academy of Healthcare Professionals.  They have three children of whom he is very proud; daughter Kamyne is Nurse Practitioner currently working at M.D. Anderson Hospital; daughter Keona is currently working on her Doctorate at Harvard University; and son Demarcus is currently working on his Master’s Degree at Texas State University.

Pastor Hester promised himself that with the help of God once he got all his children through school he would return and finish his degree, and he did. Pastor Krejchi Hester is a proud graduate of Houston Baptist University holding a Bachelor’s in Theological Studies.  

He believes in social justice and community service therefore he is always collaborating with other Ministers of the gospel on how to build the Kingdom of God in the Old Town Spring Heights area or the Huntsville area where he currently resides, or anywhere he finds the opportunity. He lives by the motto “I’m Blessed More Than I Deserve.”
