“I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?’ Then I said, ‘Here I am Lord! Send me’ ” (Isaiah 6:8).


Thank you for visiting our website. I have witnessed first hand that God uses ordinary people for extraordinary things. My heart’s desire is to walk in the path that God has put before me. My goal is to lead REAL people to a place of experiencing a REAL God’s power and love. I believe that God can meet you where ever you are and take you where He wants you to be. He has a REAL purpose for each individual. 


I have been married to my wonderful wife and best friend, Jennifer, for over 15 years. We accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior together at Zion Baptist Church in March, 2000. We were also baptized together on April 2nd, 2000. We have five children, Angel, Aniya, Elijah, Emmanuel, and Anora. I look forward to leading and serving you.
