Statement of Call
I first felt the call to ministry at Satartia Baptist. Where I taught the College/Career Sunday School class and was elected to serve as a deacon under
Rev. James Allgood. The Lord has progressively moved me to this point.
Philosophy of Ministry
In the opening chapter of Isaiah, God describes a people whose worship is artificial. I would hope to that God would use me to lead the Church to True Worship of Him; And to True Love for Him and His Church.
