​THE CHURCH AT LAKE CHARLES BEGAN AFTER FIVE MEMBERS WERE HAVING BIBLE STUDY IN THEIR HOMES PRAYED FOR A PASTOR. ON MAY 31, 1975 THE LORD SPOKE TO MINISTER OVAL TEZENO JR. FROM PORT ARTHUR, TEXAS TO GO TO LAKE CHARLES, AND TAKE THE PASTORATE OF THESE 5 MEMBERS. ON JUNE 1, 1975 HE WENT AS INSTRUCTED AND TOLD THEM WHAT THE LORD SPOKE, THE PEOPLE REJOICED AND EXCEPTED HIM AS THEIR PASTOR. HE MOVED HIS WIFE SIS DELTRA TEZENO AND FAMILY TO LAKE CHARLES; WHERE THE LORD USED THEM TO MINISTER IN THE NORTH LAKE CHARLES AREA. YEARS LATER THE LORD ADVANCED THE CHURCH, WITH MORE MEMBERS AND MINISTERS. AFTER TWENTY ONE YEARS IN MINISTRY THE LORD CALLED OUR DEAR PASTOR HOME. WE CONTINUE IN THE LEGACY OF THE FONDER OF THE CHURCH AT LAKE CHARLES TEACHING CENTER; PASTOR OVAL TEZENO.
