I greet you in the powerful name of Jesus Christ. I am truly grateful to Bishop A.J. Richardson, Presiding Prelate of the 11th Episcopal District for having confidence in me to lead the Sons of Allen Men’s Ministry. I recognize the A.M. E Church has lost a significant number of men from our pews over the years and I hope to engage this issue head on by creating ways to strengthen the local SOA Men’s Ministry. I strongly believe in the axiom, “As go the men, so go the families and so goes the church.” God has called men to be the spiritual leader in their families, and we want to equip men’s ministries to reach and strengthen men in their churches.

If you are a Pastor or SOA Men’s Ministry Coordinator, my desire is to serve you and encourage you as you strive to strengthen men and encourage them to be godly men. May God bless you richly as you train and equip his soldiers!
