I'm a native of Atlanta, Georgia the youngest of 5 siblings. I was raised and reared in the Church Of God In Christ (Powerhouse COGIC - Elder Michael Fletcher; Greater Christ Temple COGIC - Bishop J. Howard Dell). Since October 2005, I have served as the Sr. Pastor/Teacher of the Ratliff Chapel Church located in Edwards, MS. I have served in the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International under Bishop Paul Sylvester Morton, Sr. and under the following State Bishops: Bishop Sherman L. Young, Sr.; Bishop C.L. Carter, Sr. (GA), Bishop Bobby L. McCarter, Sr. (MS) since the 1990's. While in FGBCF, I served as the State of GA Youth Minister of Music, West Central District Worship Leader/Minister of Music, State of MS Minister of Music, SW District & Central District Minister of Music and a Sr. Pastor.
In March of 2007, God showed his hand of favor on my life and birthed from my Spirit, Abundant Faith Covenant Fellowship in which I serve as Presiding Bishop/Visionary and where I am also a Spiritual Father, Covering, and Mentor to several churches and Pastors. And during our Inaugural Holy Convocation September 17th-20th 2009, I was consecrated to the Episcopal Office of Bishop in the Lord's Church. In March of 2009, I became a member in good standing with the Joint College of African American Pentecostal Bishops under the leadership of Metropolitan Archbishop J. Delano Ellis, II. I have been Preaching and Declaring the Gospel of Jesus Christ since July of 1987.
I'm also an accomplished Musician, Singer, Director, Worship Leader, and Song Writer. I served for several years as the Minister of Music for the Atlanta Chapter of the GMWA under the leadership of the late Eleanor Guest-Poole and Ms. Evelyn Ellis White. I played on the 1999 GMWA "Men Of Promise" CD on a song entitled "He's Just Testing My Faith" and was a Soloist on the 2000 GMWA "Men Of Promise" CD on a song entitled "He Won't Ever Fail". I have served in this area of ministry for over 25 years and have been honored to play with and for several of today's Gospel Artist and Preachers.

Yes, oh Great Bishop....I was with him as part of an episcopal college from HIAM at the conscecration of Dr. Robert E. Williams (who was once my D.O.). Usually when I see Bishop Young, he is in VA for Dr. Williams.
Sounds like your consecration was high powered...my LAWD! Did you fall out under the power Bishop? lol
I hope we can be in fellowship soon also. Be well and wear your bishopric well Sir.
Grace and Peace Your Grace---Bishop in the Lord's curch. Just wanted to drop you a congratulatory line regarding your recent episcopal consecration. Would have loved to have been there. I know it was regal. Blessings upon your life and ministry as you obey the voice of the Lord in your future endeavors. We welcome you as a brother beloved into the fraternal order of the epsicopacy.
Thanks for sharing the pics with us (: Did Bp. Young, or did anybody from the fellowsip come to your consecration? I kind of miss a lot of the leaders from FGBC. Take care Bishop.
