About the Pastor
God is great and greatly to be praised:
Whatsoever thy hands findeth to do, do it with thy might;
Growing up in the church in Buffalo NY, I matriculated from a Door Keeper to Trustee and Minister of Stewardship then Sunday School Teacher and Youth Pastor to Ordained Elder. I served on the Board of Directors for the American Baptist Church and the College of Elders for the Full Gospel Baptist Church.
I saw the need for men to operate in there gift and began a Men's Ministry.
God was still pushing me to another dimension in Him and I obeyed God in 2002 and moved my family to Virginia. It was in Virginia that I served as an Interim Pastor and assisted in Jail and Substance Abuse Ministry. I received my Bachelor and Masters Degree in Biblical Studies while studying at the North Carolina College of Theology. I have also served as a member of the Democratic Caucus and the Chesapeake Advisory Council for Juvenile and Domestic Relations.
In 2011, God has called me as Founder and Pastor of Greater Works Full Gospel Baptist Church in Elizabeth City, NC. I served as Adjutant General and in 2016 I was consecrated and installed as Adjutant Bishop for the South-Eastern Region of the Open Praise Alliance of Covenant Churches. I am a part of the Joint College of Bishop's Adjutant Academy.
It is my desire to preach a relevant word that will challenge every hearing believer to challenge themselves to be a better person and to allow the word of Christ to dwell richly in them. So let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Join with us as we do Greater Works!
