I've been affiliated with this church for over 30 years. The current pastor, Terry Byrd, is a solid man of God that preaches the truth in love. The word of God has precedence over all and the exaltation of Christ is first and foremost. My wife and I were married in this church and we raised our children under the ministry of this local assembly and the under-shepherd of Pastor Byrd. I surrendered in 2009 to the call of God into the ministry and in 2013 stepped away from Layman's Chapel at the leading of God to pastor a church in Hillsborough. I love pastor and Mrs. Byrd! They are the real deal and are as faithful as you will ever see in a servant of Jesus Christ! We have many friends still at Layman's and stay in contact with them. Pastor Byrd is only the third pastor since 1964, a testimony to the faithfulness of this local New Testament church in this community.
