Pastor Louise T. Royal

Elder Louise T. Royal is the unshakeable, unmovable, steadfast visionary, God’s humble servant and highly anointed pastor of Jackson Grove Bible Church of God, Midway. Pastor Louise Royal is the fourth of thirteen children. Pastor Royal gave her life to Christ at the early age of 16 in a deliverance church in Newburgh, New York.

Moving back to North Carolina, she later joined Jackson Grove Bible Church of God in 1967 and started singing for the Lord. As bad as Pastor Louise Royal wanted to sing her way to Heaven, Louise preached her initial sermon in 1990 under the leadership of Bishop Leonard Lofton. For time would move fast and would have split time with Jackson Grove and her husband, Rev. Leonard E. Royal’s, First Missionary Baptist Church of Abbottsburg, but Pastor Royal stayed in the holiness movement.

In October 2004, Elder Royal succeeded her pastor, Bishop Lofton, in the office of pastor. Pastor Royal has four children, Apostle Patrick O. Stewart, Sheila “Shawn” Stewart, Elder John “Tyrone” Stewart, and Leonard “Lenny” Royal Jr. She also has 13 grandchildren. Most importantly, Pastor Royal is saved, unapologetically sanctified, and filled with God’s precious gift, the Holy Ghost. Equipped with God’s gift and vision, Pastor Royal unashamedly accepts the will of God, by assuring that countless souls will be saved and will reach their purpose to fulfill their destiny.
