Our founding pastors, Larry and Annette McDaniel, bring to our church more than 40 years of ministerial experience. Their ministry began in 1966 when Pastor McDaniel resigned his secular profession in Sanford, Florida to become a full time evangelist. Their first pastorate was in Deland, Florida. They have since served as Senior Pastors at the River Road New Testament Church of God in Bridgetown, Barbados, Calvary Temple in New Port Richey, Florida, Pasadena Blvd. Church of God in Pasadena, Texas, Coastal Cathedral in Savannah, Georgia and the North Cleveland Church of God in Cleveland, Tennessee.
The McDaniels spent over 10 years as missionaries in Barbados, West Indies, the Republic of Haiti, and Western Europe. Pastor McDaniel has had the opportunity of traveling and preaching the gospel across America and around the world.
Pastor Larry and Annette McDaniel became the founding pastors of The Sanctuary of Savannah in August of 1994.
