Rev. John D Fuller was the pastoral leader of Lewis Chapel Baptist Church for forty-two years.
Under his leadership, the church grew from a humble white-framed building at the corner of Skibo and Raeford roads to the incredible building proudly displayed on Lewis Chapel’s crest. Guided by the Holy Spirit, sound doctrine and built on the principles of tithing, Lewis Chapel Missionary Baptist Church grew to a membership of more than four thousand during his tenure.
In 2003 he expanded the churches community; breaking ground on the Lewis Chapel Family Life Center. In 2005, the $5.3 million facility was dedicated in his name. A strong believer in mentorship, Dr. Fuller helped shepherd more than 60 men and women into ministry.
In 2015 he retired from Lewis Chapel and passed away four years later in 2019.
Rev John D Fuller’s legacy has shaped Lewis Chapel’s past and molded the foundation for its future.
He will be eternally missed.
