This month, I would like to share with you the video from my 35th Birthday Thanksgiving Service. Watch/Listen and be blessed. Remember to share and subscribe.


My Holding on to Hope Weekly Devotion has been an inspiration to many. Normally, a new video clip or a post is published on Monday mornings on my YouTube channel and Facebook page. I will start to post new video clips soon but in the meantime, here is one of the previous video devotions encouraging you on who you are not.


If you have not watched any of the videos from my Online Bible Study (OBS) called Bible Gleaners then you are missing out! What are you waiting for? In case you missed any of the sessions, you can watch the replays on my YouTube channel or on my Facebook page. Here is one of the videos from a study I did on sharing your faith.

As usual, all the FREE PDF handout with notes from the study is available to download on my website. Also, please mark your calendars! Bible Gleaners will resume in 2023.


I do a LIVE 1-hour teaching via Zoom every quarter. My goal is to train, equip, develop and to sharpen the skills of Pastors, Ministers, Leaders, Church Workers/Volunteers, Community Leaders, Entrepreneurs, Managers, Supervisors and other interested persons.

The next workshop is scheduled for Tuesday 22nd November 2022 at 8:00 p.m. EST Caribbean Time. The topic is “Strategic Leadership” and you can register by clicking the link below. You must register to get the Zoom link, as the training will not be live on social media. Registration is quick and simple! Just fill in your name, email address, submit and you are good to go!

Registration Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0ucOyqqTMpH9wuY8iBIsNUn80AgV44dBTN

In addition, I created a program for persons who might have missed workshops that I did in the past. I am now offering those workshops on a one-on-one basis or to teams. More information is on the flyer below.
