Co-Pastor Bio






“Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.”  Proverbs 31:29







Pastor Hestina Legette is the Founder of Virtuous Women of Purpose Ministries, a ministry that was created for all women, regardless of race, culture, or pathways of life.  She is dedicated and committed to assist women, who are broken and damaged by the hardships of life, explore the root cause of their strongholds, determine how to be delivered, become whole, and understand God’s purpose for their lives.

Pastor Hestina and her husband Apostle Leroy Legette, Sr., are the founders and Senior and Co-Senior Pastors of Faith By Love Family Worship Church in Syracuse, NY.  Together they are a dynamic and God loving union, called by God to address and defeat the strongholds of ignorance, racism, religion, poor self-esteem, and poverty that are holding many individuals captive.

Pastor Hestina has created and established many courses designed to strengthen the women of God, including, “Naomi and Ruth,” “Strong Women in Challenging Times,” “How to be a Vessel of Honor,” and the “Women Support Group.”  As God began to unveil the immeasurable authority and power of confessing His word to her, she was inspired to write her own prophetic poems and declarations that have the power to transform lives.  Collecting her writings, she published two books entitled “Life Changing Confessions” and “You Can Be a Holy Vessel of Honor.”

Pastor Hestina is a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a Spiritual Mom to many.
