One of my earliest memories is that of attending Sunday school at the Market Street Church of God in Lebanon, TN. In Sunday School we were taught that “GOD would fight our battles for us.” That lesson was immediately put to the test as one “Joe Louis Harrison” decided to test my faith. Never mind that I lost the fight. I remember this lesson as the foundation of the abiding Faith I have been blessed to receive.
I now understand that the Lord Jesus has always had his hand upon me and was preparing me to preach His uncompromising Gospel!
I accepted the Call to Minister to God’s people in January of 2007; I was awarded Certificate of License to Preach on June 3rd 2007. . .Ordination service was conducted January 25th 2009.

I have been mentored and taught by Men of God: Pastor W. Marvin Rorer, Pastor Vernon Jenkins (Deceased-Eagles Nest Baptist, Ft. Worth, TX), and Dr. Larry D. Pruitt (Pastor-Christian Faith Baptist church-Ft Worth, TX) who have made it clear that the Ministry is a Life Long Emergent Privilege and Responsibility.
