Earl Hammond
SENIOR PASTOR pastorearl@elakechurch.org

Pastor Hammond is married to his lovely wife, Miriam, and they have four grown children and five grandchildren. Pastor Hammond attended the University of Central Florida when it was FTU and he completed his post graduate studies at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary & Covington Seminary. He has a Doctorate of Ministry in Theology.
On a personal note, Pastor Hammond wants you to know that he loves the Lord and desires more than anything to honor and glorify Him. Pastor Hammond is called to preach the Word and love His people, the Church! He preaches the Bible in an expository manner (verse by verse) but believes God wants you to know Him as Lord & Savior by accepting Jesus' free gift of salvation & grow in your understanding & relationship with Him.
