The History of Prevailing Word Church

To honor Pastor L. Lynn Beams –

After 22 years at Dupont Company in Victoria, Texas, Lynn was called into full time ministry.

He began a work at The House of Prayer in San Antonio, Texas; during that time in the early 80’s, he battled cancer and received a report of “one night to live” from Dr. Cohen, his Oncologist.

However, Lynn was miraculously raised up back to life! After his recovery, he was called to Lytle, Texas where he pastored a growing church for many years. 


Pastor Beams left a legacy

He built two churches, the large church in Lytle, Texas and a lovely church in Cotulla, Texas.  Established an accredited Bible school.  Was involved in the community through writing a newspaper article,
participating in multi-church events, and speaking at various public events.  Served (while Pastoring) with son-in-law, Dan Ytuarte, at Ever Change Youth and Family Services, a Faith-Based residential facility for juvenile males and females.  Initiated and oversaw Angel Food Ministries, offering low-cost food in the Lytle and San Antonio areas.  Began Evenings to Bless Israel and then joined with Christians United for Israel to continue hosting an annual Night to Honor Israel for Lytle and the surrounding areas.  Was a hard worker, never quit, had bulldog faith, and loved his family.


After fighting the good fight of Faith, Pastor Beams finished his course and entered Heaven on December 4, 2017.
