Pastor, wife served 25 years

Lifepoint Church will celebrate Pastor Jack and Helen Manley’s retirement from pastoral ministry at 10 a.m. Sunday at the church, 2200 S. 32nd St.

Friends of this ministry are invited to attend this special day of celebration, according to a media release.

Since January 1989, the Manleys have served as pastoral leaders at Lifepoint Church (formerly Evangel Assembly of God). Pastor Manley and his family came to Lifepoint Church from First Assembly of God in Cleveland, Texas, in the north Houston area.

Other pastorates include Central A/G, Albuquerque; Alto, San Augustine, and Tyler, Texas. Pastor Manley also pastored First Assembly of God in McAlester for 7 1/2 years, giving him a total of 33 years of pastoral ministry with the Oklahoma District of the Assemblies of God.

Pastor Manley has invested 47 years in ministry, with 43 of those years in pastoral ministry. He was ordained in 1973 in Austin. Helen retired two years ago from Healthcare Solutions Group, where she worked for 18 years.

The Manleys are both native Texans and will be moving back to the Dallas/Fort Worth area shortly.

The Manleys have a daughter, Paula Manley, who graduated from Muskogee High School in 1990. She is a professor at Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie, Texas. She will be graduating from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa in May 2015 with a doctorate degree in elementary education.

The Manleys also have a son, Steven Manley. He graduated from Muskogee High School in 1995 and attended Connors State College and Tulsa Community College. He is a national sales manager at Phoenix Designs in Oklahoma City.
