Our Pastors

Sr. Pastor Bishop Dr. Michael Lewis

Dr. Michael R. Lewis was born in a small village in Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies. At the tender age of fourteen, he accepted Jesus Christ as His Saviour. He was one of the youngest students to be accepted to The West Indies School of Theology where he completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Education. Dr. Lewis’ personal mission was to be more than an “ordinary” Christian. He has spent most of his life in long periods of intense prayer and fasting because he hungered to see the supernatural power of God unleashed through his ministry. 

In 1975 he obeyed the orders of God and conducted two powerful weeks of Crusade.  From that crusade not only were numerous souls saved, but those who were afflicted with cancers, deafness and many other types of diseases were miraculously healed.  From that crusade Deliverance Temple Int’l was birthed in humble beginnings under a house in the hills of Petit Valley.

Now 36 years later Deliverance Temple Int’l is comprised of Fifteen (15) Churches in Trinidad, Two (2) in Barbados and Two (2) in the U.S.A .   As the Overseer & President of these Churches, Dr. Lewis continues to strive for excellence and is always seeking the Lord to do greater things at every level. He has founded a Nursery, a Kindergarten and a Bible School. He launched into a Television and Radio Ministry with a mandate to minister the whole Gospel to the “whole man”, and conducts a weekly Deliverance service on Thursdays at 11:00a.m.  These powerful services have become a household name both locally and internationally.  Thousands are being saved and delivered each week as they come into contact with Time of Deliverance. 

Dr. Lewis travels extensively declaring the Word of God and humbly submitting himself to be used of God.  He avails himself to many executive boards across the world, provides extensive spiritual counseling and to men and women in significant leadership positions.

His wife of forty three (43) years Pastor Josephine Lewis, his five daughters, his five grandchildren and his entire staff will tell you that they faithfully support him as they have personally witnessed that he lives by what he preaches.  He is indeed a Man after God’s own heart.
