PASTOR DONALD WEST is an Assistant Pastor of Perfecting Faith Church.
He was raised in the Long Island City area where he and his family attended Long Island City Gospel Tabernacle (a branch church of Bethel Gospel Tabernacle) under the leadership of the late Pastor Moses Taylor. When his family moved to Queens, New York he began to attend and function at Bethel Gospel Tabernacle, under the leadership of the late Bishop Roderick R. Caesar Sr.
While at Bethel, he served on the Finance Department, Ushers Board, and sang on the Youth for Christ Choir, for many years. He graduated from Bethel Bible Institute and obtained a certificate in General Bible Studies.
Pastor Don is one of the founding members of Perfecting Faith Church, which began in September 1999. He and his family joined Perfecting Faith Church when it was established in June 2001. Through the leading of the Lord, he was ordained by Pastor Donald A. McClurkin as an Elder, and in October 2010, was ordained as an Assistant Pastor.
Pastor Don is the Head of the Finance Dept., a member of PFC Board of Directors and is an instructor at Perfecting Faith Bible Institute (PFBI). He serves as a member on the PFBI Governing Board, functioning as the Bursar. Pastor Don also facilitates the Noon Day Prayer held at Perfecting Faith Church on a daily basis.
Additionally, he and his wife Pastor Rebecca West spearheads The Abundant L.I.F.E. Dept. (Married Couples Fellowship). Along with a planning committee, they organize events and conferences to carry out the vision cast by Pastor McClurkin. This vision underscores the importance of marriage and the family unit which should represent wholesome relationships with God based on biblical principles.
