Jarvis L. Parker was born to the late Walter Jr. and Cora Winston Parker. He is the fifth of ten children.  He was blessed to be united in marriage to Evangelist Flora Mae Clark Parker. They have three children Carolyn, Shawron, and Ebony.

Pastor Parker received his education from Bertie County Public Schools in North Carolina. He furthered his education and received his associate degree in Biblical Studies at Bible Teachers Institute in Virginia Beach, VA. In 2017, he received his Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Soul Saving Station’s Bible College.  He loves to study and enhance his knowledge and revelation of God’s word.   

Education and youth being one of his passions, Pastor Parker spent more than 17 years at Hertford County Public school as a certified/licensed teacher in a variety of positions. He is presently employed at Martin Community College, teaching welding related courses at Martin and Bertie High Schools. These positions afforded the experience of dealing with youth and helping them to achieve behavior and academic success.   Pastor Parker also has 22 years of welding experience in the private sector; which included instructing others.  Pastor Parker is known for his positive and encouraging attitude and mindset.

Jarvis Lee Parker received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, October 31, 1977.  He was a faithful member of Sandy Point Baptist Church in Windsor, NC.  After much prayer, and the leading of the Holy Spirit, he joined Soul Saving Station Evangelistic Center under the leadership of Founder and the late Bishop Valeriano Melendez and Co-Founder Eleanor Melendez.  After years of studying God’s word, the evidence was upon his life for Leadership and the Ministry; beginning as a licensed Evangelist, an Ordained Evangelist and later consecrated as an Assistant Pastor.

In December 2009, Pastor Parker accepted the call of God and received confirmation from the governing Church Board to serve as the Pastor of Soul Saving Station Evangelistic Center. He humbly believes that God has entrusted him with the vision to engage the leadership in bonding the past with the present while leading them into the future.  He believes we must be about the business of demonstrating who our Father is in the earth; that we must train and equip the body of Christ to do what Jesus did - operate in the supernatural, operate in faith, healing and deliverance.  He believes it is his manifest destiny to lead Soul Savings into the future, and “The Future is now”.

He is a member of the Hertford County Public School’s “Faith-Based Collaborative”, which is an ongoing meeting of local spiritual leaders who are interested in promoting the spiritual well-being of students.  Participants are encouraged to be visible and available throughout the school day, to participate in school programming, and to advise the Superintendent of Schools as necessary. He is often asked to provide the invocation to school activities including Convocation and graduation.  He is well known to both students, faculty, and staff at all grade levels.

As further evidence of his community interest, Pastor Parker has also participated in the Ahoskie Chamber of Commerce Annual meeting providing invocation or prayer.

Pastor Parker is often called upon as a Guest Speaker for multiple venues; including Church and Pastoral Anniversaries, Black History Month programs, Soul Saving Evangelistic Center Annual Convocations, and Spiritual Workshops.

Belief in God means doing the works of His son, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:12-13).
