He joined Church of God, The Eternal (a remnant fellowship) after that school year, was baptized into the Faith at age nineteen, and was later ordained as a minister in 1997 by Mr. Raymond C. Cole. He received a business degree from the University of the State of New York and had a successful career in corporate middle management until choosing to serve the church full-time in 1999. After the death of Raymond Cole in 2001, he became Pastor and Director of Church of God, The Eternal.
