Tell us a little about yourself. I am currently the senior pastor of PowerHouse Worship Center located in Peoria AZ. I humbly oversee ministries in New Jersey, Georgia, Michigan, and Arizona. My dedication to being a public servant has been demonstrated, as I am a United States military veteran, former Detroit Police Officer, State of Arizona Special Agent, Detective, and Police Sergeant, while pastoring local churches at the same time. I share my life with my wife Monique and our three children.
What was your motivation behind this project? My up close and personal experiences along with God motivated me to write this book. The process in which God used as an inspirational tool was the combination of being a full time Law Enforcement Officer while also pastoring a church full time. I noticed how my preaching was reaching some yet the demonstration of sound character in the workplace produced more change than my preaching at church. I listened to my co-workers tell me why they dont go to church and while in church I would listen to the congregation tell me that they did not enjoy their jobs. I was inspired to bridge the gap and explore an avenue of influence by introducing the true nature of God by workplace performance and demonstration as opposed to just inviting co-worker to church.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? More Than a Servant will appeal to readers due to the fact that the material contained in this book is the material contained within our everyday lives. It is the right now reality of our existence concerning how the church is viewed by the non-believer and how the message of the kingdom is communicated by the believer that represents the kingdom. People will gain inspiration to keep pushing Godly characteristics in a less than God friendly environment.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I wrote this book in the mist of difficulties and a time of deflation within my career. It was a inspiring to exibit the support of God during my testing phase. I was overjoyed to be able to share my experience and the revelation gained through my experience with readers.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I am an avid reader. Of all the writers I have had the joy of being exposed to I must say I am a fan of Myles Munroe.
