I come from an incredible family of preachers and singers. Never in my life have I experienced a family gathering that did not include singing. Singing for me is like breathing. I began taking formal voice lessons in the 8th grade and have studied off and on most of my life. At the age of thirty, I accepted Jesus Christ as Lord of my life. Since then the doors God has opened for me have been more than I could ever ask or think. God called me to seminary where I took study tours to Africa, Israel and Greece. While living in Atlanta God blessed me to be the worship leader for a church with 5000 members and to serve as the personal assistant for a national Christian recording artist. After seminary I did a residency as a Chaplain in a trauma hospital. This was an incredible time of growth and strengthening for me. It also prepared me to help my own family through the death of my father. That was hard, but God has continued to bless my life. I am know raising three sons and preparing for my next and greatest season!
I spent many years studying ministry at the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, GA. While there I earned Master degrees in Christian Education and Church Music; and a Doctorate in Ministry. I also completed 5 units of Clinical Pastoral Education at Grady Memorial Hospital where my primary assignments were the Emergency Room and the Children's Hospital. Prior to seminary I worked in the banking industry, a career I was forced into because I needed to work. But my heart has always leaned towards community service and the arts. After seminary I began teaching at Beulah Heights Bible College and in churches around the Atlanta area. I also served as the worship leader for Greenforest Baptist Church and the Personal Assistant/Office Manager for Christian Recording Artist, Babbie Mason.
Singing, family and children are my greatest passions. Writing is also a passion. I spend my time hanging out with my sons, Keith, Raajon, Rahmiere and Zymiere. In my spare time I work in my home office, creating things that will inspire others. One day I hope to create a place where children affected by poverty can find hope, love and faith.
I love helping worship leaders develop worship ministries. I am offering free consultations to those assigned to lead a worship ministry at their church. Feel free to email questions to: email@example.com
Worship clinics are 2-4 hour classes held at your church. Topics include: The Difference Between Praise and Worship; The Role of the Worship Leader; Entering the Presence of God; Leading Others into the Presence of God; and The Tabernacle.
I want to provide resources for pastors, those who teach worship, those seeking personal inspiration.
