Raised in the church his entire life, Pastor Straker was sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit, calling him to the office of Pastor in 2007, and is currently the founder and Lead Pastor of the Reflections Church in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn, NY. The church began with nine adults in his living room with little to no money. But by God’s grace, the ministry has now successfully grown, touching the lives of hundreds of people who have been enriched by his powerful preaching/teaching, and also empowered through the various programs and seminars designed to enhance the lives of people in its community and beyond. Currently, under Pastor Straker’s leadership, the ministry is actively engaged in a multimillion-dollar project to build a new church home that will be a resource to the community, equipping lives for this world and prayerfully the world to come.
Pastor Straker has also found his voice as a community activist, fighting for justice and the human dignity of all those created in the image of God. Pastor Straker is an active member and serves as the Chairman of the Board for the 67th Precinct Clergy Council, Inc. “The GodSquad,” the premier clergy led anti-gun violence organization in the City of New York, under its Public Safety Coalition, combating gun violence and other related issues within the confines of the 67th precinct and throughout the city. He also serves on the Advisory Council for the Shirley Chisholm Recreation Center and a proud member of Mayor Eric Adams’ Caribbean Advisory Council, under the auspices of the New York City Office of the Mayor – Community Affairs Unit. Beyond his numerous ministerial duties, committees, and community partnerships, Pastor Straker truly enjoys lending his prophetic voice as a fellow panelist on JRG Entertainment’s, “The RESET,” every Friday morning at 10 am, with a host of esteemed panelists and over 750,000 listeners worldwide.
Pastor Straker is a devoted husband and father. He is happily married to the former, Latanya T. Bryce for over 24 years. Together they have produced two handsome young men, Louis III and Landon. Pastor Straker’s ultimate desire and purpose in life is to be a light and a reflection of His Creator, living a life, not just with success, but significance, that upon his departure, will leave this world in a better place.
