I was born, raised, and spent the majority of my life in Detroit, MI. Since becoming a Christian at 19, I've felt compelled to serve my city. I have served in a myriad of ministry capacities including, prison and homeless chaplaincy, youth pastor, mentor for at-risk children and youth, preacher, and Bible teacher. From 2015-16, I served as a pastor/church planting resident at Restore Church in Central Detroit, MI. On 10/16/16, we officially launched Cornerstone on Detroit’s West Side.
I married my best friend Elita in 2004 and we have five wonderful children; Elisabeth, Philip, Sarah, Tabitha and Abigail.
