Elder Sylvester Spann Jr.

Elder Sylvester Spann Jr. gave his life to Christ and was baptized at a young age. He rededicated his life to Christ at the age of 25 and has been walking with Him ever since.

Sylvester is currently the leader of LCF’s Brothers of Solomon Men's Ministry. In addition to the Brothers of Solomon Men’s ministry, he currently serves on the ministry room team and ministers through song with the Voices of Life Music Ministry and the Men of Faith. Based on the vision God gave Senior Pastor Dono W. Pelham, Sylvester was led by the Spirit to take the men of LCF outside the four walls of the church to challenge them and put their egos at risk. He led the men to witness and minister to the lost and the impoverished throughout DFW. Sylvester can be heard on his internet radio show, The Undefeated Man, every Monday at 6 pm Central on the LCF internet radio station.

Sylvester accepted his call to preach on December 2017 and was ordained as an Elder on November 2018. He is married to April Spann and they have two beautiful children.
