I was born in Hazard Kentucky but raised in Southern West Virginia by my mother, who was a Pentecostal preacher, who went on to be with the Lord when I was a teenager. I graduated from Christian school in Chapmanville WV around the age of 16 then went to the local community college for 2 years. I then decided to move to Charleston WV to finish my bachelor's degree in psychology, then went on to receive my master's degree in counseling education. I was raised in Pentecostal Holiness churches; I was baptized at 12 filled with the Holy Ghost and started preaching the gospel at 13 years old. I have served many positions in the body of Christ before receiving the call to pastor. I have driven the church bus, served as youth pastor, singles pastor, played drums, been the janitor, taught Sunday school, etc. I just want to be a door keeper in the house of the Lord. In 2008 I started pastoring. I wanted a place where everyone felt welcome. In 2011 God gave us the church on Woodward drive. The Fishers entrusted the building in my hands to restore to its former glory, and we have been working on a building for our Lord ever since. The Fishers have both went on to be with the Lord, but every food box we give out is in their honor and the food pantry is named and dedicated in their names Fishers of Men. The Lord has given me a message and the church a vision to let everyone know the Lord's house is for everyone and everybody is a somebody.
