Pastor Emeritus ~ Rev. Beatrice Lamonte
Rev. Beatrice Lamonte is 101 years young and the founding pastor of Temple of Faith World Outreach Center. Sister Bea, as she is lovingly known by many, is a true mother in the faith and pioneer of her day having ministered for over 60 years. Her zeal and fervor stems from a time as a young woman when she was stricken with tuberculosis and given no hope to live. Jesus Christ delivered her from death and as a result she has been preaching life and advancing the Kingdom of God ever since. Pastor Lamonte’s message is one of living whole-heartedly for the Lord while being empowered daily by the Holy Spirit in her “secret place”. She continues to mentor and encourage workers for the Lord and guest ministers nationally and internationally. A book describing Pastor Bea’s testimony called “Despair to Glory: The Rev. Bea Lamonte Story” was published in May 2014.
