Our Leadership Team


David Spears

Pastor David Spears and his wife Sharon would like to personally invite you to join us at Lafayette First Assembly! We look forward to your visit and optimistic you will experience a life changing encounter with our Lord and Savior!

Pastor David has served 15 years in ministry with 11 of those years being in the Lafayette Community. In addition to leading LFA, he is the Spirituality Chaplain at Westmoreland Care and Rehabilitation and Signature Healthcare of Portland which gives him wonderful opportunities to meet people in all walks of life and to minister at their point of need.

Pastor David and his wife Sharon have been blessed with six children and five grandchildren that make their life complete. Achieving his Ordination through the Tennessee School of Ministry was a highlight in his life, fulfilling God’s plan for him to become a senior pastor. This has been a very exciting time and Brother David continually seeks direction from the Lord on his ministry.

The congregation at Lafayette is such a wonderful family of Christian people who love the Lord and want to reach out to the Macon County area and surrounding. Being a servant leader is important to Pastor David and his family, and encourages the congregation to show God’s love through compassion for others. Community involvement is a priority with our congregation and have been blessed to meet needs in Lafayette by partnering with Convoy of Hope to provide food/supply boxes as well as deliver shoes to elementary age students in two Macon County Schools.

Pastor David has such a passion and great love for serving the Lord and preaching the good news of Jesus Christ that he is honored to have the opportunity to reach the lost, heal the hurting, and bless abundantly the people in these communities.

Thank you for taking time to consider Lafayette First Assembly, we look forward to seeing you soon.

LFA Services


Sunday Services

Our Sunday morning services begin with Sunday school at 9:00 a.m. that will aid you in expanding your knowledge of God’s word and will allow you to do this with other loving church members by your side. Then, our Sunday Morning worship service begins at 10:00 a.m. with a unique and spirit filled worship service that will allow you to enter into God’s presence like never before. After worship you will be filled with an amazing word from our pastor that is founded on the truth of God’s word and is applied to everyday life and its challenges. Also on Sunday Morning’s we have Kingdom Kids which is a great ministry for children in grades K-6. In their class they will get to experience God’s word in a way that is impactful, exciting, and unlike anything they have ever experienced. Kingdom Kid’s encourages your children to learn about God’s word and to fall in love with coming to church to worship Him.


Catalyst Youth

Catalyst Youth meets on Sunday Evenings at 6:30 p.m. for youth in grades 9-12th. This is an intimate time together where youth will experience a dynamic service that reveals the truths of God’s word in a way that is relevant to where they are today. It is a place where they can learn and apply God’s life changing principles to their life. Many have been able to get the answers that they have been searching for related to God in a setting that is tailored just for them.

Wednesday Evening

Wednesday evening beings at 7p.m. and offers a variety of classes from adults to kids.

Adult class offers a deeper dive into God’s word with discussions on topics that are relevant today.
