From an early age, it’s always been my desire to help those in need. As a grammar school student and high school student, I worked in a summer camp that worked with inner-city kids. As an adult, I worked with the homeless and street ministries in Texas, Mississippi, Kentucky and Georgia. These ministries included an after-school program to inner-city kids, food and clothing provision to prostitutes and the homeless, and bread/sweets to motel and section 8 housing residents. I’ve been on multiple short-term mission trips abroad and within the U.S.A. providing food and clothing to people in need, as well as, sharing the Gospel.
I was raised in a denominational religion, however, got saved at a non-denominational church over 25 years ago. I am a paralegal and consider my choice of profession is not by accident but an avenue to minister to broken individuals. My growth in ministry began in children’s ministry and to this day I remain active in children’s ministry, pastoring at our current church. For several years, I pastored children whose parents attended Celebrate Recovery. I became involved in street ministry approximately 5 years ago beginning as a prayer walk around town, progressing to a ministry including bible studies, concerts, guest speakers and missionary support. Nearly 10 years ago, through a former church, I began serving low income apartment complex, preparing lunches and delivering them at least once a month. That grew into preparing dinners once a week to serve the low income and homeless. We have grown into a ministry that serves many weekly and coordinate monthly outreaches, cookouts, holiday meals, back to school back pack supply events and new start projects.
I got Born Again in 1994 and remain passionate about sharing the love of my Lord Jesus Christ through Freedom In Christ Outreach. I have served the Lord in many capacities; media ministry,domestic mission trips, coached Upward sports, participated in various street ministry and outreach events, sponsored men in Drug Court, co-pastored Celebrate Recovery children’s ministry, started a home fellowship bible study with my wife Gloria and friends which grew into a large, multi faceted downtown street and community outreach ministry, and recently hosted a Christian Television show ‘Impact’ which showcased Believers who impact our community through Jesus Christ. I have held various positions while serving the Lord over the past 25 years; coach, missions leader, Elder, Prayer & Deliverance Minister, Outreach Pastor and outreach / street ministry related leadership positions. I enjoy teaming with other Believers and ministries to advance God’s Kingdom and watch how Jesus changes lives!

Isaiah 57:14-15 And it shall be said, “Build up, build up, prepare the way, remove every obstruction from my people’s way.”15 For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite”.
Yours in Christ,
