Meet Senior Pastor W.L. Valyan


Pastor W.L. Valyan has been a “front-line” warrior in the Lord since 
1987 when the Lord called him to be a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since then, he has allowed the Lord to utilize his gifts in the following areas: giving, faith, evangelism, and ministry of helps, wisdom and knowledge. He served as the adjutant for Pastor Levon Thurman for four years. Pastor Levon Thurman saw his faithfulness, servitude and obedience; and later appointed him as Assistant Pastor. His responsibilities consisted of overseeing the Ministry of Helps dept., establishing “The Banquet of Faith”, and outreach ministry. Through “The Banquet of Faith”, many souls were restored, delivered and healed. God also allowed him to launch into the deep with the ministry of evangelism. He continued to stay faithful and submissive under the leadership of Pastor Levon Thurman until the Lord called him into Pastoral Leadership in 1996. It wasn’t until 1999 he’d stepped out on faith and established “God’s Guiding Light Outreach Ministry”; which was later changed to “God’s Guiding Light Christian Center”. The Lord gave him the vision and mission statement for God’s Guiding Light Christian Center: “Dedicating to Making Whole People in a Broken World”. The ministry began to flourish through his anointed teachings and setting the standards for the body of Christ. Many of his family members are active members of God’s Guiding Light Christian Center.

Pastor W.L. Valyan is the Senior Pastor of God’s Guiding Light Christian Center. He is a native of Washington, Louisiana. He also retired from the U.S. Army. He and his wife, Co-Pastor Wanda Valyan works as a team in the ministry. Pastor W.L. Valyan continues to operate in the Spirit of excellence and mentors skilled and willing workers to be effective Leaders in the Kingdom of God. His long-term goal is to see the purpose and plan of God fulfilled.
