Born in Baltimore, Maryland
Married to the former Brenda L. Nowlin

A former 2nd generation Pentecostal preacher; he was converted in the late 1980’s and retrained by the school of external studies, SIBI and the leadership of the church of Christ in Glen Bernie, and recently received a honorary masters degree from the University of Bible in Baltimore. He became an assistant minister under the tutelage of Bro. Elmer Sembly Jr. at the Metropolitan church of Christ in 1992. During this time he gained a reputation for strong biblical teaching and evangelistic ability. With a vision to plant a new work in Baltimore, a small group of around 35 members in December of 1995 has become the East Baltimore church of Christ, healthy congregation of 375 plus members, where he currently ministers. He is also a certified Sunset Satellite school administrator of the Northeast Baltimore Bible Institute & College, (using the Sunset curriculum).

He has preached Gospel Meetings and held workshops in Georgia, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Texas, North Carolina, Washington State, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and DC areas. He was a speaker in the Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, National and Mid-Atlantic Lectureship, Mid-Atlantic marriage retreat and seminar. We have planted two works in the Baltimore area (the recent is the Southside church with Richard Brent a Sunset graduate as the evangelist) and have developed a modern evangelistic ministry called “Ninety minutes and in" or "High Impact Evangelism” which is responsible for hundreds of baptisms in the last 24 months. For a total of 9 years he hosted a live call in radio program entitled “Search the Scriptures” which was instrumental in increasing the kingdom of God in the Baltimore metropolitan area. This live call in program paved the way for others to begin to challenge the charismatic movement and return back to the Lord’s church.

With his friend and companion of 27 years, along with their 4 children Erica, Eric, Eian and Erin. The Lord is using me to plant faithful congregations in the Baltimore metropolitan area and with project Northeast. However, he humbly gives God all the glory and honor for using His earthen vessel. To God be the glory for the great things He has done.
