I was very blessed to be raised in a Christian home. My parents took me to church, where I learned about Jesus and how to have a relationship with Him. I never did anything really bad as a kid, but I realized that I had something missing in my life. After many conversations with my parents, I prayed to receive Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. Only Christ could fill the void that I felt in my life. It was around the age of thirteen or fourteen when I felt God’s call to ministry. Since then, God has opened doors for me beyond my wildest dreams. I thank God for the opportunities and the ministers that God used to disciple and train me for ministry. I have strived to prepare myself for ministry through my college and seminary education. I seek to serve His church in order to lead people to a personal relationship with Christ, to teach others that worship is a lifestyle, and to lead others in the worship of our Lord Jesus.
