I have been in and around church my entire life. I remember at a young age telling people that I would be a preacher. Unfortunately, I fell into a lifestyle of sin at the age of 15. I began drinking, doing drugs, and living an immoral lifestyle. I struggled with insecurity, anxiety, and depression. I did not know who I was or who I was called to be. Through all my struggles I was still involved with church and was even a youth pastor for a few years. I lived a double life.

In September of 2012 I got married, and four months later my first wife was killed in a car accident. I was crushed and thought my life was over. Over the next few years my life began to spiral out of control. I began to main line narcotics into my veins on a daily basis in order to function. I was in and out of the hospital with near-death experiences at least 7 times over those years.

The last time I went to the hospital, the doctor told me about a place called Outreach Ministries of Alabama. I made the decision to enter the ministry and get right with God. On my 5th day in the program, I had a radical encounter with Jesus and I decided to totally surrender to Jesus and His call for my life. I was instantly delivered from addiction, anxiety, and depression that I had been a slave to for over 12 years.

Over the next year at OMA I was given a firm foundation in the word of God, prayer, and living a holy lifestyle unto God. The staff not only taught the word of God, but lived it. OMA set me up for success.

One of my favorite scriptures is 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” I can attest that this is what happened to me. Since completion of OMA I went on and graduated from FIRE School of Ministry. The Lord has given me a beautiful and anointed woman of God as my wife. We have given our entire life to Jesus and to see His purposes fulfilled in the nations of the world. My family and I are incredibly grateful for Outreach Ministries of Alabama.
