In October 1998, he was ordained as an Elder in the First Born Church of the Living God, Inc. He has ministered extensively throughout the Eastern United States in numerous revivals. He has a heart for all people, and his desire is to see souls saved, set free, healed, and delivered through both the preaching and teaching of God’s Word.

He is an anointed vessel of God, chosen to lead this wonderful church family in such a time as this.
