Team Member: Byron Hypolite
Building the Bridge Youth Coordinator
Byron is a lifelong resident of South Louisiana and desires to be known as a servant & disciple of The Lord Jesus Christ. Raised on the foundation of truth, Byron drifted into the world as a pre-teen. One night, at the age of 19 years old he had a drastic out of body experience & vision of the next world. Filled with the conviction of God, this caused him to cold turkey forsake his sinful lifestyle which included his dedicated hip hop dream.
Several years later he met his wife Lashona at church where she came searching for a deeper experience with God. Soon she became a born again disciple of the Lord & they were married in 2011. A few months later God called them to plant the church in St. Martinville, La. She has been and still is such a blessing to him in far too many ways to count. Today they are blessed to experience the joy and beauty of their two wonderful sons. For the past 8 years Byron has been the senior pastor of Disciples Of Christ Jesus St. Martinville. He is currently also the Youth Director of Section Three in the Louisiana District.
