Family: Married to my childhood crush Chanesia. Kids: Orien II and Eden
Saved: Definitely, Texas is where I’m from and its hot enough there, wasn’t going to hell. Fully surrendered to the Lord July 1992. Born in church and stayed!
Education: Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from Florida A&M University! I’m a rattler to my heart, I bleed orange and green! Post secondary education received in “lifeology” and “churchology” you learn a lot (even what you didn’t want to learn) from life and church people.
One of the Things I Find Most Fascinating: The constant evolution of technology, I’m secretly scared the robots really will take over one day.
Best Thing Someone Said to You: “You are my son and I am well pleased.” ~ My Dad
“You have no idea what God has put inside of you, you’re only operating at 30% of your gifting, get ready for more.” ~Tim Ross “I love you” ~My Wife (the very first time)
Life Motto: Excellence is an attitude not a skill
Someone I’d Like to Meet: Jesus (threw that in for the saints), but Kobe, JFK, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and many of the great men of faith of our time, list is too long to name
One of My Greatest Experiences with God: The first time I ever heard God audibly in that still small voice speak to me was about my calling to preach. I was 18, and couldn’t sleep at night like Samuel in I Samuel 3. I would wake up sweating, and then one Sunday in the middle of service I could literally see Jesus stainding on the platform pointing at me behind the pulpit and him covering me while I spoke. My whole existence was warm and never had a peace like that before in my life.
Most People Don’t Know This About Me: I used to want to fly fighter F-16 planes for the Air Force, until I learned what war really was. My middle name is from the hotel where I was conceived, and I long to learn to play the acoustic guitar.
