Assistant Pastor Renard Lightner

Rev. Renard Lightner is a resident of Compton, California who was born and raised in

Los Angeles, California. He graduated from Washington Preparatory High School and furthered his education at Los Angeles City College.

Renard is the husband of 41 years to the love of his life, Sandra Lightner, and a father to six blessed children of God; Renard II, RaeSeanna, Rashaud, RaeSaundra, Raelyce, and Raeniece.

In addition to being a loving, faithful husband and father, Renard has dedicated his life to God’s mission. He lives a life in service to God and His people in love, through ministry, and even his choice of employment. Renard retired from Los Angeles Unified School District in 2009, where he was employed as a Professional School Bus Driver safely transporting God’s precious cargo for 30 years.

He was called to Ministry in the late 1970’s and continues to respect and humbly submit to the call God has placed on his life. Through Christ Jesus, his service, and study of God’s word, The Church of God in Christ endorsed his call and ordained Renard an Elder in 1983 by Bishop George Dallas McKinney. Renard has since served in ministries assisting as an Assistant Pastor, Sunday School Superintendent/ Teacher, and Choir member, always encouraging others that there is a better way to life through Jesus Christ.

Renard and his wife became members of Faith Inspirational M.B.C. after moving to the city of Compton in 2002. He loved the high praise, the love, vision, and mission for the community, and the anointing that rested in the place. Renard knew it was the place he was called to serve when he recalled the sign behind the pulpit that reads “Saving Soul and Changing Lives”.  He believes this statement is the main purpose of the believer to be a “Mirror that reflects the image of Christ” in order to “Save a soul and change a life” through the power of Jesus Christ. He continues to have a hunger and thirst for God and His Word and loves teaching the Word of God to all of God’s children. Renard believes that God is “no respect of person” and there is “no Big I’s or little u’s” in Christ Jesus. We are all apart of His body and Christ is the head of His church. “Where there is unity there is strength” and on these core values Renard aims to continue serving the Lord with all his heart.
