Herode and Edline Guillomettre

Haiti

Service Area: International

Ministry Focus

Herode felt the call of God to ministry in 1987, and decided to go to the Baptist Theological Seminary in Haiti, where he received a bachelor’s degree in Bible.

He continued his theological education by attending various seminars and training courses with organizations such as Global Ministries in Latin America, CELADEC, Church World Service International, Stewardship International and others.

Herode is the National Ministry Coordinator in Haiti for Missions Door. Since 1998 Herode has planted 17 churches and 5 schools. He also has facilitated several development activities and projects throughout Haiti.

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. It has gone through turmoil and political unrest for years, but in the midst of financial and political chaos, the country is responding to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Guillomettres’ mission is to promote evangelization and Christian development in Haiti in a way that helps the people of God to deal with all types of problems they face. Their vision is to transform the lives of leaders, so they can become instruments of transformation in their communities.

Faith Story

Herode was born in Petion-Ville, Haiti, and raised in the city of Port-au-Prince. In 1983 he became a Christian when he started reading the Bible and learned that this book was the truth.

Herode was soon involved in door-to-door evangelism. The involvement in this ministry became his passion, and the Lord led him to a church where he got baptized.

In 1991 Herode and Francois Vilmenay established the Christian Center for Integrated Development (CCID), which is a ministry that trains many pastors and leaders through seminars and conferences.

Family

In June 1996 Herode married Edline, a Haitian national who graduated with a degree in accounting from the University of Mexico in Toluca, Mexico. Herode and Edline have two children: Deinlee Ruth and Leissa Debora. They live in Port-au-Prince.
