Prince of Peace Church Celebrates First Anniversary

of Senior Pastor DeAndre R. Carswell

Portsmouth, Virginia - Jan 15, 2024 - On this momentous occasion, Prince of Peace Church gathers in celebration of a significant milestone. Exactly one year ago, our beloved Senior Pastor DeAndre R. Carswell, affectionately known as "Pastor Dre," began leading our congregation into a new chapter of our church's journey. Today, we joyously commemorate this first anniversary, not only as a symbolic turning of the page but as a testament to the faith, unity, and hope that Pastor Dre has nurtured within us.

This service is more than a mere recognition of achievements accomplished; it is a profound expression of gratitude for Pastor Carswell's leadership, compassionate heart, and unwavering dedication to guiding us, his flock, in the will of God.

Furthermore, this service serves as an opportunity to look forward to the future, brimming with promise and potential. Under Pastor Carswell's stewardship, a clear path lies ahead, adorned with refreshing initiatives and opportunities to serve. This anniversary signifies our renewed commitment to this ministry and our vows to support our Pastor. It is a pledge to honor our shepherd, to embody love and service, and to continue writing the story of Prince of Peace through selfless acts of outreach and fervent prayers shared.

In his inaugural year as Senior Pastor, Pastor Carswell has embraced three guiding pillars: Christ, Community, and Commitment. These principles have served as a compass, propelling our ministries to flourish, expanding our outreach efforts, and deeply impacting the Brighton community of Portsmouth, Virginia.

Today, we celebrate not solely one year, but the boundless potential that lies before us, the inspiring leadership of our Pastor that guides us, and the unwavering faith that has kept the doors of Prince of Peace Church open for over a century.

May this anniversary mark the beginning of a lifelong journey of continuous growth, unwavering devotion, and a lasting legacy of love etched into the heart of Brighton. We extend our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to Pastor DeAndre for his unwavering faith, boundless love, and steadfast devotion.

The future holds untold blessings, and we eagerly anticipate what God has in store for the next chapter in the story of Prince of Peace Church.
