Formerly he has served in the music ministry of the Apostolic Church of God where Bishop Arthur Brazier is pastor, the music and outreach ministries of Oakcliff Bible Fellowship, where Tony Evans is pastor, as intern with Pastor Eddie Lane in Dallas, TX and intern with the single's ministry at Fellowship Bible Church North in Dallas where Gene Getz was pastor.

2) Mission, Vision, Values
The Church of Chicago exist to proclaim the kingdom of God with an anticipation of Christ's soon return
Our vision is to minister with a contemporary and diverse ministry which reflects the scriptural mandate for evangelism that is both biblical and relevant while positively impacting the community with the gospel and love of Christ. Worshipping the Lord is extremely important to us.
Believers will grow as they mature in the faith while assisting newer believers in their walk. The increasing intimacy of the fellowship of Christ followers is a foundational aspect of this ministry. New Christian leaders will emerge and develop to influence our immediate communities and the world community at large.

- Dynamic Worship of God
