Denise Smith-Lewis

Denise Smith-Lewis invited the Lord Jesus Christ into her life in her teen years. The experience confirmed her identity as God’s daughter. She is Antiguan and Barbudan by birth and grew up in Antigua with her parents and siblings. The home was a place of missions where the hungry were fed and the homeless were brought in for shelter.

Denise discovered her passion for service then and has been in the pastoral ministry for twenty-eight years. She has served in her native Antigua and also in St. Kitts. She is a poet, songwriter, and playwright and has often used these gifts for self-expression and as a medium for sharing God’s love.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Theology and a Masters in Family Life Education. She is the wife of Rev. Algernon Lewis and mother of two young men, Yemun and Y’Mahzie Lewis. She remains passionate about serving the Lord and uses any means available to share the gospel.
