Pastor’s Biography

I accepted Christ as my personal Savior in September of 1975. I was raised in a family whose roots were in the Church, I’ve had the opportunity to serve in the church for 45 years in many capacities in my continued Christian growth and development. (Brother, Deacon, Elder & Pastor). After meeting with my local Pastor and receiving his blessing, Toni and I began to pastor in Southeast Seattle. On December 5, 2004, Toni and I founded The Carrie House Church of God in Christ in a home located in South Seattle, in honor and memory of my Grandmother, Mother Carrie Reese.

Prior to pastoring, I owned and operated a Real Estate Appraisal business for 35 years. One of our sons now owns the business and is doing quite well.

Toni and I have been married for a little more than 43 years. We built our current place of residence from the ground up, moved into the place August 1984 and it has been home to five generations (grandmother, father & mother & in-laws, Toni and I, our sons, and now many of our grandchildren). We have four sons, four great D-I-L’s, and twelve grandchildren.

I’m slowly working on a Master of Divinity while pastoring, teaching classes at a secured women and children’s facility, working with detained youth at a Seattle facility, and being a devoted husband and loving grandfather. My hobby is gardening.

Toni and I are in awe of how God has blessed our humble beginning.
