Preachers for next month’s meetings

 Evangelist Clarence Hafelin

Evangelist Clarence Hafelin was converted in 1977 out of a hardened and rebellious lifestyle. Several years later God called Clarence to preach. He pursued formal training and finished degrees in both Pastoral and Missions Ministries. Clarence had 8 years of pastoral experience before entering the evangelistic ministry in 1994. He has worked with numerous churches both at home and abroad and has a heart for revival and evangelism. Clarence’s wife, Linda, and their three children, Isaac, Rebekah, and Elijah, travel with him. They are sent from Cornerstone Baptist Church of Hamilton, NY, where they are members.
