Why John Wesley? 
I believe that God sent me to John Wesley FMC to be the pastor and I simply said, yes, and answered His call.  I also know that God has prepared me to continue the legacy of building a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, intergenerational church.  This is my passion and my purpose, which is to see the people of God come together as one to reach all people for Christ for the Kingdom of God. This is why I am at JWFMC for such a time as this to LOVE God, LOVE people and MAKE disciples.

Music and Books
I love and appreciate any books on leadership, leadership development, personal development and church growth.  What I enjoy and listen to most is gospel, praise and worship, and contemporary Christian music.  I also listen to mostly classical music and some R & B oldies but goodies.

We are destined for greatness to serve.
