Many Faces, One Faith: We are a diverse group of believers varying in race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity, but united by our shared faith in a loving and merciful God.
“But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.” Ephesians 2:4-5 NIV

I received the call to become a minister in 1978. A lot of life happened between the call and becoming a minister. There were things I had to overcome, tribulations I had to endure, and blessings I learned to recognize. Only after coming to know myself and studying to show myself approved, I was licensed with Reconciling Pentecostals International in 2006. In writing a biography there is a temptation to proclaim degrees and accomplishments. It is not my accomplishments that will set you free, but the one and only JESUS.
” It is the Lord who goes before you . He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Hebrews 13:5-6 ESV
