He was called by God before birth but began to discover his calling to the Gospel Ministry when he was 4 years old. Since he was 4 years old, people in his
community perceived him as a pastor and began calling him “Pastor Walace.” He accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and got baptized at the age of 10. Since then, he has been serving the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in various leadership capacities and communities. Pastor Saint Louis is fluent in English, French, Creole and able to read and translate Greek and Hebrews as well.
