The Pastor and His Work
As an ordained pastor and the founder of The Church of Philadelphia, my
developmental, managerial and leadership skills have been used to further the growth of the church. My responsibilities include
teaching and training new ministers and deacons. It is my intention that the ministers are prepared for the future office
of pastor, preacher, evangelist, or teacher in their own church through proper leadership, scriptural studies, and active
participation in pastoral and church duties.
In addition to leadership training and motivational skills, the preachers,
teachers, evangelists, and pastors under my tutelage are also trained in Christian counseling, budget management, church growth
management and fund-raising so as to properly administer and satisfy the needs of the church and its members. I am especially interested in, not only attracting new members, but providing programs and services that
will develop the individual and increase their spiritual growth.
Towards that end, I am working towards creating a program entitled, Trinity
Fitness. This program will target school-age youths and young adults to provide
guidance and mentoring in the areas of developing the mind, body, and spirit. Within
the scope of this program I will have the responsibility of providing Christian teaching employing basic and adult learning
techniques. In addition, I will prepare these young men and women in the areas
of physical fitness, etiquette and social skills, self-discipline, and developing job skills.
As pastor, my managerial skills include appropriate advertising and marketing
to draw new members, as well as extensive computer skills training. In seeking to keep up with technical advancements, I am
proud to announce this endeavor to branch out to the internet. By utilizing the potential of this technology, we will be are
able to reach beyond our limited boundaries to those all over the world who wish to receive the Word of God.
In 1996 I was blessed to release my first book entitled. “The Empty
Tomb”. This book, which is held in the personal libraries of former President
George Bush and current President George W. Bush, sound the warning to Americans and Christians that time is growing short
and that change is needed. This book quickly sold out, as a need was filled by
the content of these 21 volumes.
Currently available is the first edition of my second book entitled, “And
Enoch Also Prophesied: The Epiphany”. Also included in this book is a bonus
printing of “The Empty Tomb”. This book completes the journey with
an additional 21 volumes for a total of 42 chapters, to represent the 42 months or 3 ½ years
of the Tribulation. This book on sale now, carries a strong message for true
believers who have outgrown milk and are ready for the meat of the Word.
Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of
the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches
which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? And he answered me and said, Knowest thou
not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole
earth. Zechariah 4:11-14
These are the two olive trees,
and the two candlesticks standing
before the God of the earth. Revelation 11:4
My leadership abilities extend beyond the preachers, teachers, evangelists,
pastors, deacons and staff to that of pastoral leader of the congregation. Other
areas of responsibility include: administration, spiritual counseling, marriage and family counseling, financial counseling,
along with bible study, workshop and seminar presentation, and special events which focus on the physical and spiritual well-being
of each member.
It is my belief that all Christian churches should be places where we
teach, preach, and believe the Word of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. If you love me, feed my sheep!
As church Pastor, I believe the responsibility of a leader is to serve
those that he leads by being available, trained and prepared to serve. By upholding with honor, dignity and respect the office
of church Pastor, I lead by example, teach from scripture, preach from the Spirit and listen to the Father for guidance.
It is also my belief that the rights and equality of all people, regardless
of race, should be guaranteed. As such, I devote my energy toward upholding the standard of civil and human rights. My duties
take me through a wide range of activities: preparing sermons, bible studies, ministers’ classes, performing weddings,
blessings of homes and businesses, men, women, and children, baptisms, ordinations, communions, funerals, seminars, and lectures.
My doctrinal beliefs lie in the teaching, preaching, and believing in
Christianity (to be Christ-like) and not religion. Religions are man-made and divisive in their effect on the body of Christ.
I believe that one must be baptized: completely immersed in water. I preach the Holy Trinity. I confess That Jesus Christ
is my personal Lord and Savior who died on the cross and was resurrected for my sins and paid the price once and for all.
I believe that once you confess this before men, you must also believe. I believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and
encourage all to read the Bible for themselves.
My educational career has lead me to obtain a Bachelor of Divinity and
Master of Arts degrees with a focus in Theology. I have furthered my education by attaining the level of Doctorate of Divinity
with a focus in Theology and Eschatology. I also hold an honorary Doctorate degree in Divinity as a result of accomplishments
in my chosen field.
