Pastor Janely Pierre
Pastor Janely Pierre is currently the pastor of the Ararat Church in Salem, NH. He was born in Haiti, his first language was Creole, and at a young age his family moved to Philadelphia. While he did not live in the inner city, many of his friends did, and he cared about those in poverty, oppressed, and fatherless. That led him to want to be a lawyer or go into politics, to promote social justice. He attended Atlantic Union College majoring in history, and added theology at the end of his sophomore year.
After graduating from college, he became a teacher at a Christian school in Vermont. There, as chaplain, he taught religion to kindergarten through 12th grade for two years. His first pastorate was also in Vermont where he ministered to two churches. Pastor Pierre says there are three parts to pastoring. The first is Visitation, getting to know the individuals and families in the church. The second is Intercessory Prayer, for vision, wisdom, and guidance. The third is Preaching, which depends on the other two. Pastor Pierre preaches from the Bible, explaining scriptures, and showing how they apply in our world today.
