  • Ken & Sandi Lester


    Ken, Sandi, Megan, and Ryan came to Huddleston COGOP July 27, 2003. Ken was answering the many pleas of his then 4 year old daughter, Megan and his Christian wife, to go to church. Due to medical conditions during the pregnancy, it was suggested that Megan be aborted. Though unsaved, Ken said, “if God wants her born she will be and He if He don’t she won’t be, but God will make that decision, not me”. On July 27, 2003 Ken met Jesus Christ and accepted Him as his Lord and Savior, thanks to Megan and Sandi’s pleas. 

    On April 1, 2011 Ken became Pastor of Huddleston COGOP, the church he was saved in. Before entering full-time ministry Ken served 22 years in law enforcement in northern Virginia, and Sandi stayed at home raising their two children. Just as in law enforcement Ken does in ministry, if it needs done “I’ll try to do it”. Ken’s belief as a Follower of Christ is, “I’ll do it Lord, what is it?” The Lester’s really cherish their family time. They like to fish, hunt, going camping, and playing games. They enjoy watching “The Andy Griffith Show”, “Little House on the Prairie”, and “The Waltons”. They ALL enjoy the ministry! Megan plays the bass and Ryan plays the guitar. They live in Lynch Station, Va. surrounded by trees and lots of wild game. The perfect place to study God’s Holy Word!
