About our Pastor,
Our pastor was born and raised in New Bedford Massachusetts. At the age of twenty three his life took on new meaning. A radical transformation in 1978 changed the direction of his life forever. He got saved.
As a musician he began to assist in the leading of worship in the different churches throughout his growing years and then God called him into the ministry. After serving as an elder in a strong biblical teaching church, he began to study theology on his own. After taking some courses he later decided that he would step out and begin this ministry. Not only is he firmly grounded in the Bible but he is used in missions and conferences in different places around the world.
He has traveled to Nigeria Africa five times, India twice, China once, Guatemala four times, Mexico once, Brazil once, and also Canada.
Pastor received his bachelors degree from Union Bible Theological Seminary, his master’s from Christian Bible Institute & Seminary, and an honorary doctorate from Omega Bible Institute & Seminary. He also holds a position as an executive board member and Deputy Chief Chaplain with the International Christian Chaplain Association under the direction of Rev. Dr. John Amaral. He Is also the chaplain for the Fairhaven Fire Department and also the Fairhaven Police Department in Fairhaven Massachusetts. He also is a member of the American Police Chaplains Association. Also, he has been appointed by the mayor and city councilors in New Bedford Massachusetts to the position of a constable officer.
His ability to counsel and help people is something to be admired. He always goes the extra mile in everything he does. All of us here at FHGCA are blessed and thankful to have him as our pastor and we know that you would too!
