Our Pastor was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. He is the third of six siblings. After completing his secondary education, although learning he was the recipient of two art scholarships, he chose, instead to serve his country. In 1973 he enlisted into the United States Air Force and served eight years until he received an honorable discharge. Pastor married Alisa M. Key (our First Lady) on July 13, 1991 they now enjoy twenty-four years of marriage. They have two daughters Asja and Jasmine, and three grandsons Tyler, Eddy and Donnell, two granddaughters Aryanah and Chloe.
Pastor spent a lifetime in People's Missionary Baptist Church and confessed Christ at the age of five under the pastorate of his godfather the late Rev. W. E. Graham, who was also the founding pastor. The Lord led him away to Friendship Baptist Church under the leadership of Bishop Duane C. Tisdale where in 1996 he accepted his call into the ministry. After two years of ministerial and servant training he was licensed to preach in 1998. That following year he was ordained as an Elder.
He always knew there was a calling for him. In 2005 he made a full circle, steps ordered by God, he returned to the People's Baptist Church. Our pastor is a true servant of God and faithfully serves our congregation and community. He assumes many duties as pastor but loves to see God’s people empowered to do every good work.
Our Co-Pastor was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. She is the youngest of four siblings. She began her work in the church as a Christian Education teacher for 3rd and 4th graders.
