the Senior Pastor for two growing and thriving Ministries on the Island of Grand Bahama,

Over the years he has planted several ministries sending forth Sons and Daughters and

advancing the Kingdom of God and bringing order to the body of Christ. God has indeed rested
on him an Apostolic Mantle with a sharp Prophetic eye and has been using him to heighten this

awareness, which consequently allows him to provide specific training concerning the Five-Fold-

ministries as well as to develop Pastors and Leaders by the power of God’s Word. He is a trail
