Guy and Keleta Parrish
In 1980, Pastor Parrish was saved at an early age of sixteen years old. He was an converted Catholic altar boy who began preaching that same year. Pastor Parrish is a strong gospel preacher who has a rich and diverse approach to ministry, with practical and instructional quality. He teaches on subjects such as marriage, prophecy, finance and many others. If one word could personify his preaching style it would be “passion.” He believes in the three sides of ministry – Inspirational, Instructional, and Educational.
Pastor Parrish has preached hundreds of revivals, camp meetings, and youth camps and conferences throughout the nation. In 2003 he served as the Chaplain to the Oklahoma House of Representatives at the State Capital in Oklahoma City. He presently serves as Chaplain/Deputy for the Muskogee Sheriff Department as well as the Muskogee Police Department, graduating from the CLEET Academy in 2002. He earned his Bachelor of Biblical Literature in 1984 and earned his M.A. of Theology at Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, MO; he has also served as Sectional Presbyter, Sectional Secretary, and Sectional Men’s Ministry Director and on various committees in the Oklahoma and Arkansas districts of the Assemblies of God.

Outbreak Youth Pastors
We grew up in Broken Arrow OK, living only a few blocks away from each other. We did not find out until later when we met at our church at The Assembly BA, we lived so close. It was perfect; one of us was creative and the other had the gift of organization. We soon discovered that we both had a heart’s desire for ministry and seeing the lost saved. It is our passion to raise up young people to experience all that God has for them and see their true calling come to pass. God can call anyone, but it takes the step to say, “Yes Lord I will Go.”
Vanessa Anderson has been a member of LIFEPOINT Church since the merge in 2014, but she has been a member of Church Central since 2005.
