Bishop Sanders preached his first sermon on November 9, 1997 at Open Door Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Pastor Lonnie Henderson. Immediately he was licensed by Pastor Henderson and given the mandate to spread the Gospel. With his Pastor’s permission, he was allowed to continue growth at Heart of Faith Worship Center under the leadership of Bishop J.W. Baines.
He served faithfully as Youth Pastor and Armour Bearer for Bishop John W.Baines and was ordained as an Elder in 2003. Bishop Baines installed him as Pastor of Community Baptist Church of Houston in 2004 where he served faithfully until planting Shekinah Glory Church of Praise and Worship in 2006. God then called him to leave the ministry in the hands of faithful stewards and embarked to Africa .
Upon his return, he was called to Bread of Life Baptist Church of Houston to serve as Asst. Pastor under the leadership of Pastor Lawrence Manuel, Moderator/Bishop of the Northeast Side Interdenominational Fellowship. Because of his faithful labour and leadership, the Fellowship called him to once again take the shepherd's staff (at the passing of Pastor Earl Simpson) and lead the Greater Mt.Carmel Baptist Church in the Acres Home Community of North Houston.
In 2010, Faith Fellowship International was formed with 6 other churches in the Houston and Texas City areas. Bishop Sanders was chosen by Presiding Bishop Baines in unanimous agreement with the Fellowship of Churches to serve as Metropolitan Bishop. His duty and assignment is to assist and support the Prelate/Presiding Bishop in all matters.
Bishop Sanders is a teacher, scholar, and mighty Man of God dedicated to the five-fold ministry of lifting Jesus higher to draw all men unto Him. He is a graduate of the College of Biblical Studies and Prairie View A&M. Academically he is certified as a School Principal and Special Education teacher in the State of Texas. He is dedicated to winning souls for the Kingdom and motivating the Body of Christ to maximize their potential.
