Elder Cordell Easton

Christian Education Leader

Cordell Easton was raised in the house of the Lord by his parents Deacon Nathaniel Easton and Missionary Casaundra Easton. He was baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus at the age of 9 and received the gift of the Holy Ghost by the age of 11. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

On October 27, 2001, Elder Easton joined his beautiful wife, Deatrice Renee Easton, in holy matrimony. Through this union, the Lord has blessed them with three beautiful children, DeRonte, Courtney, and Cortez, and one adorable grandson, Dustin.

Elder Easton had the privilege and honor to serve on various church auxiliaries under the leadership of his former pastors, the late Bishop Jacob A. Green, the late Bishop Allen H. Easton, and his current pastor, Bishop Darnell L. Easton. He currently serves as the President of the Bethel Way of the Cross Youth for Christ. He served as an ordained deacon from July 2000 until he was called into the ministry. In December 2012, Elder Easton answered the call into ministry and preached his initial sermon entitled, “What Happened to Your Vision?”, Judges 16:4-21.

Elder Easton has a passion for winning souls for the kingdom of God and loves to help individuals live victoriously through the power of Jesus Christ. Experiencing many struggles and pitfalls in life, he has learned personally about the depth of God’s grace and mercy. These experiences have enabled him to minister to various situations this life can present. Elder Easton is humbled by the calling the Lord has on his life and is dedicated to serving God's people. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth...” Romans 1:16.
