Doyce H. Smith - Senior Pastor
Doyce H. Smith was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas on March 23, 1951, and has been married to Suzanne for 38 years. They have three children: Micah, Matthew, Anna Marie and seven grandchildren.
Pastor Doyce was saved at age 12 while at youth camp. Shortly after that he felt the call into the ministry. Pastor Doyce is an alumnus of Gulf Coast Bible College which is now Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma, City. It was there he met his wife Suzanne and shortly after his last year in college they moved to Asheboro, North Carolina to help start Chimney Lane Ministries in a barn with 12 other people. As associate pastor there he was worship leader, in charge of a prison ministry, sang in the Last Days Light Band, coached soccer and basketball, taught in Chimney Lane’s Christian Academy and was the daycare director of Chimney Lane Child Development. After twenty-one years of ministry in Asheboro he and his family followed the Holy Spirit’s direction in 1994 and moved to Shreveport, La. where he became associate pastor and worship leader at the Oakmont Church of God. He became the Senior Pastor in 2005.
Pastor Doyce enjoys the universal language of music, fishing, sports and loves spending time with his family.
Pastor Doyce’s passion is for the church to wake up and be the church that God has called it to be. Holy -- without spot, blemish or wrinkle and to reach the lost world! His desire is to see it become the unified body God intended for it to be even though each body part is different. He prays for clarity so that those differences will not divide us but make us one body so the world will know we are His disciples because of the love we have for one another.
