Pastor Hubert Powell, Jr.
Hubert L. Powell, Jr. is a visionary, captivating yet humble leader who serves as pastor of Latter Rain Christian Fellowship Ministry in his home town of Hartford, Connecticut. As the beloved son of the late Deacon Hubert and Mrs. Edith Powell, he was raised in Holy Trinity Church of God in Christ and educated in the Hartford school system. The call of leadership and mentorship was evident in his life at an early age, and he was acknowledged for his immense musical talent as evidenced by the various venues where his gifts were utilized. After going on tour with the renowned jazz organist, Groove Holmes, he continued as a professional musician and worked on projects with various secular music artists such as Wood, Brass & Steel and Musique.
In March of 1979, Hubert Powell heard the voice of God and gave his life to the Lord. He left the secular world of music to submit to the call of preaching and teaching God's word. His lifetime pastor, the late great Bishop I. L. Jefferson, recognized the potential that God has placed in him, and elevated Hubert Powell, first as minister and then an elder at the church. The call of God on his life quickly began to manifest as numerous invitations for him to bless others with his testimony of deliverance began to be extended. In 1985, Elder Hubert Powell was appointed and humbly accepted the position of pastor of Holy Trinity Church of God in Christ in Hartford, CT after the death of Bishop I. L. Jefferson.
As the ministry progressed, the Lord gave Pastor Hubert the vision to take the church to the next level and in September of 1998, the church entered phase one of the new church edifice, which is located at 3200 Main Street, Hartford, CT. It was also during this transitional phase, that the name of Holy Trinity Church changed to Latter Rain Christian Fellowship Church. Assisting him for the past 26 years in his pastoral ministry is his industrious and anointed wife of thirty-nine years, Co-Pastor Jacquelyn E. Powell. Pastors Hubert and Jacquelyn Powell are the proud parents of three sons, Hubert "Doobie" Powell, III, William "Church Boy" Powell, and Kevin Powell. In addition, they have been blessed with two daughters-in-laws: Denise Rene and Joi, and five granddaughters and one grandson. The call of leadership and mentorship that started in Pastor Hubert Powell has now trickled down to his three sons, who are not only dedicated musicians at Latter Rain Church, but are also acknowledged and highly respected musicians in the gospel industry.
