From Death to Life is a story about a church that was once thriving, and because of making drastic changes too soon and a lack of vision, it figuratively died. God raised it back from the dead through the proper vision connection and equipped it to be community-driven, through a 501(C)3 organization called Mission in the City. MITC was given to do a specific work in the community by assisting and restoring the community back to good health one person, one block at a time, through programs and services that give life to people suffering from a plague of blight, violence, drug trafficking, unemployment, and gang activities in their communities.
From Death to Life encourages individuals who are seeking balance for their lives. It also encourages pastors with small churches, pastors looking for new ideas for ministry, leaders and organizations that are struggling to find ways to make a difference. It shows them how to move beyond their corporate and private walls, out into the community, making major investments through the implementation of programs and projects that will remove the negative reputation that afflicts their community. These investments will silence the cry of the world, which blatantly declares the church has nothing to offer the people who live in the communities it surrounds.

Tell us a little about yourself. I currently pastor New Life Baptist Church. I am 61 years old and married with two children.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wanted to share my failure and pain in ministry to show smaller churches how God birthed a new direction for the me and the church through the pain.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope people will find a new hope and not give up if they are experiencing pain in ministry, because pain always comes before birth.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? My life changed as I developed this book. God emptied me and refilled me with a passion to speak to the world about what He could do.

Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: This book is not just for leaders but people in general. Chapters 4-7 teaches one to have balance that will help them avoid capsizing in the ocean of life by growing as Jesus grew based on Luke 2:52
