Being an Armor Bearer is not an inherited position and should not be looked upon as a prestigious position. Armor Bearers are specially selected men and women who are directly responsible for the care of the Pastor and First Lady. They should possess the ability to adjust to different situations and personalities as they are often assigned to serve visiting pastors and their wives as well as distinguished guests of Lighthouse.
The role of an Armor Bearer is to serve and assist. They are to free their assigned person of personal items such as outer wear, Bibles, books, et cetera and likewise to secure those items. An Armor Bearer should study their leaders carefully observing their likes, dislikes, and needs. The persons serving in this role must have such a heart for their leader that they are able to anticipate what is needed at all times.
