 What Are You Gonna Do With the Word? 

That’s the question the Lord wants to know! What are you going to do with years and years of church service. bible study and Sunday School…the opportunity to stand and preach were few and far between. I struggled with knowing how I would share all that had been imparted to me over the years until one day the Lord gave me the idea to begin a virtual Sunday School class.

Considering that I preached my first “sermon” 20 years ago, I figured that it was time to officially become a minister of the gospel. My first sermon was “Sweep Up, It’s the Fall Season” and challenged us to guard our hearts against apostasy. This short sermon was preached at Saints Chapel Church on youth Sunday and became a regular choice for those Sundays. Since that time, I have developed an ecuminical ministry that has been blessed with the privilege to stand at numerous churches of varying faith traditions on numerous occasions.

I have been a believer since the age of four and have done my best to live a life worthy of the call to preach the gospel and to make my call to gospel ministry sure. I was licensed in 2010 by the National Association of Christian Ministers as a gospel minister to share the gospel in response to Matthew 28:19-20 because “go ye is still in the bible!

Concerning the five (four)-fold ministry gifts, I am operating as a teacher in consideration of the Pastorate, should that also be part of my call. In this stead, I endeavor to help believers and unbelievers alike grow to understand the word. I believe that by growing individuals, personal relationships are impacted. I currently share the word in radio and video broadcasts via The SMG Report and SoulProsper Radio, as well as songs, articles, and books released by my publishing Company, Mighty Pen Publishing.

In July 2022, I was licensed as an ordained elder in the Church of God in Christ accepted into ministry to serve under Supt. Ben Nobles, Sr. and Bishop Don Nobles, Sr. Jurisdictional Prelate, Texas Lonestar Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction.

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. 
Ephesians 4:11-16 KJV

Preach (Teach) the Word…

It came to me during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic when I realized that though church services had become virtual, supplemental services weren’t. What were we going to do about the Sunday School and especially the older population who regularly attended but weren’t attending services? The Lord gave me the answer and with that, a vision was born.
