I received the vision for Influence Church while my wife and I was in New Jersey for a conference. I had a burning desire to start a church that did not look like all the rest but was unique in its design. I see that people need to understand their identity and in doing that, they must Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and then they can truly Make a Difference. During this conference, there were many questions asked that I answered based on the passion that I had to see people’s lives changed. The birth of Influence came by a few simple questions being asked and answered:

  1. What Are We Here For?

  2. What Problem Are We Called to Solve?

  3. Who Are We Called To?

How did we get here? The journey that we have taken to get here is a long one but a rewarding one. I was raised in a Godly house with parents who loved God. I could not help but to love God because I had examples on how to do it. Throughout my life I struggled with the idea of being a preacher because I had some issues that would not allow that to be so. I ran until I could not run anymore. Despite the household that I was raised in that taught me to trust God, love my enemies, live a righteous life and be faithful, I made a choice to live a life away from my purpose. Deep inside I knew that God had a plan for my life but I never embraced it until the day I had an encounter with reality. Still in high school, I was confronted by a gang who wanted to harm my life but what they meant for evil God used to show me that His hand was on my life and simply like Isaiah 54:17 states, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.” That day I realized the realness of God said “ok God you win, I surrender.” Life has not been easy but it has been fulfilling. There are many more experiences that have accompanied me on my journey and I am ready to write another chapter in this book of life and I want to see Influence Church live up to the name and be an Influence to others who face hardships through life’s experiences.

My wife and I have a desire to see people changed for the glory of God. We believe that God has a plan for your life. We want to be a church where people can experience God. During the conference, God refreshed the idea in my mind and heart for a vibrant, relevant church that was designed to minister to the whole man/family. We want people to come to the knowledge of who God is, being free in their identity, knowing the plan for their lives, and going out making more disciples of Jesus.
