Image“I believe that God has been working on me my whole life.  Every experience that I have had, both good and those that have been challenging, have led me to this point.  In Christ, I am a new creation that comes to the table with all of my past experiences and with my hope in Him for the future.  My prayer is that at Infinite Grace Fellowship, God would empower each of us to impact the lives of those in our community for the Kingdom of God and that the Good News would be spread far and wide both in word and in action to make disciples of Christ to then make more disciples of Christ.  We are going to be doing church differently and it is exciting!”

Isaiah was stationed in Korea, Oklahoma, and Germany. While serving in the Army, Isaiah was decorated as the Soldier of the Month in May 1995 and Soldier of the Quarter in July 1995. After his release from the Army, Isaiah heard the call of God and decided to finally answer.

In 2002, Isaiah became a Certified Lay Speaker serving at Eastern United Methodist Church and immediately started working with youth ministry. Isaiah’s life and
faith in God were tested when he was hit by a car and was told that he would be loose his left leg, but the grace and power of God was with him and healed his leg.
Since this life changing event, Isaiah recognized the Power of God in his life and realized God had something special to do with him in ministry. Isaiah is currently a certified candidate for ministry pursuing full time ordained ministry.
