Samuell Pounds, Minister

Samuell Pounds was born in Hallandale Beach, Florida, to the late Ora Lee and Madison Pounds. He was taught and baptized by Jesse Toliver at the Hallandale Church of Christ at the age of 12.

He was educated at Bethune-Cookman University (Daytona Beach, Florida); Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) Tallahassee, Florida; and Harding School of Theology (Memphis, Tennessee).

He was a Youth Minister for 9 (nine) years.  Three years of his ministry to youth was at the Easthaven Church of Christ in Memphis, Tennessee, and six years were served at the New Golden Heights Church of Christ in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  It was at New Golden Heights where he served under the dynamic leadership of Dr. W.F. Washington.

He was the Senior Minister of the Westside Church of Christ in Rockford, Illinois, and he served from August 1997 to June 2006. That congregation grew both spiritually and numerically during his tenure.  In addition, many programs were implemented including their school—the Westside Christian Academy in which he served as Principal and Administrator. 

Currently, he is the Senior Minister of the Hilltop Church of Christ in Winter Haven, Florida.

He is married to the former Lisa Lynette Harrell of Miami, Florida and they have three children: Jalyssa Janee, Samuell Jamaal and Jerusala Jalyn.
