    I gave my life to Jesus Christ at the age of nineteen on January 5, 1990 at Christ Temple Church
    in Detroit, Michigan. After two years of being saved, I was called to minister God’s word.

    I began to receive favor and was asked to teach Sunday school to young boys ages 12-18.
    I then was asked by my senior pastor, Bishop Carl E. Holland to assist with the counting of the
    tithes and offering on Sundays.

    I received my ministerial license from Aenon Bible College in 1998 and continued to minister at
    my home church and at other church engagements.

    In 1998, I married my love, Rhonda Pattie, a school teacher who holds a Bachelor’s Degree
    in Secondary Education and a Master’s Degree in School Administration. We have two children.
    Tamara, 6 and Tacara, 3.

    In 2006, God called me to become a pastor. I discussed my vision with my wife and God
    had been dealing with her in the same way, but had not revealed to us the location of my calling.
    We discussed a location and decided to relocate to Chicago, Illinois. We shared our plans with
    our pastor Bishop Carl E. Holland and he gave us his blessings to pursue pastorship by starting a church. “Genesis 12:1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy fathers house, unto a land that I will shew you.”

    Coming to Chicago was going to be a new experience for us. We had visited Chicago a couple
    of times previously and had a great time site seeing. We have no family here, but we trusted in
    God to prepare the way for us and He has.

    Before we left, our pastor gave me the opportunity to preach my final sermon entitled
    “Transformation of my Situation”. After the sermon, my family and I stood in a receiving line
    in front of the church members to receive a love offering to assist with moving costs.

    I am currently the pastor of Lord of Life Ministries at 2340 E. 75th Street. It is a small work
    that has been in progress for a year and a half. You can view our website at God has spoken to us to seek a church that may not have a pastor
    and join forces there. I believe that there is too much division in the body of Christ and we need
    to strive to be on one accord.

    I pray that your church would be the one that I can assist in moving into the future to further unite
    and build the kingdom of God.
