Here at the nest our vision is to be a church engaged in ministry by all means. That means we envision  ourselves as a church that is becoming all things, to all men, that by all means,  we may save some. We hope to accomplish this by relentlessly pursuing our mission to GO…TEACH…LOVE. It is our hope that this website will serve to provide all the essential information that you might need in order to decide to COME LEARN LOVE with us at the nest. So feel free to browse our website or join us in a live service, but whatever you do never forget that WHETHER YOU ARE AN ELDER OR A YOUTH  … WHETHER  YOU ARE NEW HERE OR YOU’VE BEEN HERE … AT THE NEST YOU ARE ALWAYS MOST WANTED!

Pastor Braylon L. A. Harris is our remarkably young leader with an exceptionally old soul. He energetically serves our ministry as a bi-vocational pastor. He is also an administrator with McNeese State University serving as Director of the federally funded Trio-Upward Bound program, which aids students from our region.

Pastor Harris purposes to keep an ear to the ground and a finger on the pulse of both our children and the city of Lake Charles. From every corner of our diverse community, and every group of our multi-generational congregation, Pastor Harris is admired and beloved.

His two decades in the ministry and 4-year degree in Business Administration have equipped him to lead with inspiration, distinction, and innovation.

Now in his 30’s, Pastor Harris is perfecting his preferred method of sermon delivery, which he calls, “Profound Simplicity.” There is no doubt that you will learn while you laugh, and be informed while you are inspired to GO TEACH LOVE!”

“I am married to the, “Eagle of my Eye,” Lady Jasmine, and we are the parents of Sydni, Zion, and Israel. BY ALL MEANS … Join us this week! I will be the lovable guy with the bright smile waiting to meet you at the front doors of “The Nest”!”

“My Children attend a magnet school and a magnet church…at Mount Olive excellence is expected and exceeded!!!”—Racquel Deville

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

We would love to hear from you. Let us pray with you.
