REV. CARLOS BANNISTER
Rev. Carlos W. Bannister, affectionately known as Pastor C, is the lead Pastor of Grace Church of God, a vibrant growing church in Brownsville, Brooklyn NY. He is a Bajan-Yankee, born in Brooklyn NY; but his roots run deep in the beautiful island of Barbados where his parents Rev. Dr Jefferson and Cynthia Bannister are from. He is married to his High School sweetheart, Lady Stephany for 12 years and the fruit of their love produced three beautiful girls: Alana, Layla and Zoe. In Pastor C’s spare time, you will find him hanging out with his family playing video games, rooting for his New York teams: the Knicks, Giants and Yankees or you might find him in the kitchen with his wife. He is known to make a good paella, lamb and the most delectable chocolate chip cookies. Pastor C works at the NYC Department of Transportation as the agency Contract Diversity Officer and Senior Deputy Chief Contracting Officer. He ensures minorities, women and other disadvantaged business owners get contracting opportunities. He has received awards for his service and leadership at NYCDOT and has been recognized by the National Minority Subcontractor Association as a Diversity Champion. Pastor C also serves on the Council for Black Business Enterprises to help address the ongoing threat of racism and immediate threat of COVID-19 that has had a profoundly negative effect on black businesses. Pastor C seeks to be an asset for the Lord, bearing fruit for the kingdom, continually walking in the Spirit of the Lord, and pressing towards the mark of the high calling of Christ Jesus. He believes that the Lord's best is yet to come in his life.
