Q?WHAT ARE SOME THINGS YOU ENJOY DOING?
A.

Well, I am a passionate, loud, lively new yorker. I LOVE being with people, hanging out, laughing and of course…eating. I love having my WHOLE family packing my house out and seeing all my nieces and nephews playing (minus the spilling and fighting)  My wife and I enjoy watching some shows like shark tank or the voice (were expert arm chair judges). I enjoy playing street ball, writing spoken word/rhymes, poetry and articles. If I can steal away to see a great flic at the movies that is a real treat for me.

Q?WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE?
A.

I LOVE MOVIES! it’s like a mental high, since I love creativity and imagination. I am a “Lord of the rings, braveheart” kind of guy. Anything based on a true story of overcoming insurmountable odds, or is educational or plot twisting, I love that stuff. Give me some nacho’s, a huge tub of “anointing oil drippin” buttery, greasy graced, popcorn with some reese cups..oh yeah! that’s kickin it in grand style for me. He, he….there I go….fantacizing about food again.

Q?WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD?
A.

My favorite foods are in this ORDER: Puerto rican food (a.k.a. Criolle). give me a steaming plate of white or yellow rice, some habuchuela’s (red kidney bean garnish)some fried plantains with lemon garlic sauce (mojito) and some chuleta’s (pork  chops)  and this Newyorican is IN HEAVEN! after this, Chinese food, and then italian food are my favs…yummm…..I LOVE EATING. Please pray against preachers “pot belly” trying to “attach” itself to me, lol, Lord knows I REFUSE to have DUNLAP…that’s when your belly “done lapped” over your belt buckle. Lawd have mercy!

Q?WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SPORT?
A.

This may be a shocker, but I am not a “avid sports nut” with season tickets and sunday football addictions and all that. It’s hilarious though, because my wife was shocked and doing the “mac trucker” arm pump..like YEESSS when she learned this about me when we were dating. She was PRAISING GOD for no “man distractions” when we got married…until…I discovered…..M-M-A! lol, now I am a “kamora craving, leg lock loving, rear naked choke, spin kick spinning back fist fan! lol. my wife was like….DOE!!! (Homer Simpson voice).

Q?ARE YOU MARRIED? FOR HOW LONG?
A.

I am actually a newly wed! my wife’s name is Oshea (ohh-she-uh) and we have a truly God made love story. When I graduated from Rhema, we met in Atlanta where I was on staff and she served along side me in youth ministry. We were co laborerers, then associates, then friends…. then BFF’s..to “i cant make it seeing you with any one else” stage lol. Many saw our chemistry and we ridiculously dragged our feet at first. We wanted to focus on our friendship BEFORE dating…but God confirmed his Hand was on us, and we cut loose our hearts, fell in love, now were life long covenant partners. She is truly my best friend, and to be honest, she is my greatest supporter, encourager, confirmer, minister and business partner a man can have.  She faithfully ministers along side me, out on the road, and we dream of traveling the world together as a family preaching the gospel. (she can teach her butt off too!) but…ministry will never be my “mistress”. I put her, and my family first. The machine of ministry can run you to death if you let it.

Q?HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU HAVE?
A.

Well, RIGHT NOW as of this highly invasive questionnaire, lol, I only have a one year old daughter. Her name is Christiana Lael. She is my lil buddy, playmate, and she seems to think I am her big slave/shugga daddy. She hits me up constantly for food, nap transport, (especially when her mama said no). Hearing he laugh is the SWEETEST sound to my ears ever.  Watching her wobble and walk and chasing me around touches my heart like nothing else. We would like to have…MAYBE three more. Help us Jesus. Blessed is the man right?

Q?WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SUBJECTS TO PREACH?
A.

I enjoy preaching the entire bible and love sitting for hours and just studying. I am a “secret nerd” with “SWAG” lol.  I really enjoy church history, archeology and hebraic concepts. It is kind of infused in everything I preach. but right now, Awakening & Reformation, Intimacy, Leadership, Worship, New Creation realities, Holy Spirit power, the miraculous, cultivating the next generation, and the Glory of God.

Q?DREAM VACATION?
A.

My wife and I LOVE seeing the world. I would love to go to Israel first off…for like 2 whole weeks and go to EVERY place in the bible. that would be a dream come true. Secondly, If I could back pack through Europe and see the sites, and lastly chillax in a hawaiian/Caribbean “all inclusive” beach/bungalow resort with my wife and paraglide and go cave exploring etc…man…I would never want to come back! lol.
