West Normandy Leadership
West Normandy is blessed to have a team of servant-leaders who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will.
Our pastor and church staff are here to connect with you, care for you, and help you develop your relationship with Jesus Christ. That means being available to listen to, talk with, pray for, and worship beside you. And it means being present to meet the spiritual needs of people wherever they are—whether in church, homes, hospital beds, prison cells, office buildings, coffee houses, or on the streets.
Pastor Dwayne has served West Normandy since April 2012. He is a native to Jacksonville and has faithfully preached the gospel for over 30 years, starting and serving various churches here in Northeast Florida. His desire is to see people following the Lord Jesus Christ intimately and passionately; experiencing all that Christ has for them. He often quotes John 16:33 - "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” He is married to his best friend, Pat, and together they have enjoyed life and serving the Lord for over 34 years!
