Pastors Mel and Desiree Ayres
At In His Presence Church you will find that our leadership team is unlike any other. Pastor Mel Ayres moved to southern California in 1977 where he had a successful acting career for 10 years. He met his wife, Pastor Desiree Ayres in an acting class, and she eventually went on to become one of Hollywood’s most successful stuntwoman. After marrying in 1983 and finding continued favor in their careers they began to feel the call of God to leave the Entertainment Industry and launch out into ministry.
Several other Leaders and Staff members also come from an entertainment background and have partnered with IHPC with the desire to help preach the Gospel throughout the entire world.
