About Our Leaders

They are people who have a servant’s heart, and desire to please God in all that they do, of which both have an extensive knowledge of ministry experience beginning from their childhoods. They were both reared in church and served in different capacities within the church and the community.

Pastor Harris served over 22 years in the US Army before retiring with a Meritorious Service Medal (MSM).
