From The Pulpit: “Keys to Overcoming the Bad Report”

Greetings to all and I’m believing God for a favorable year for you and your house. I thank God for the awesome opportunity of serving the Westchester/Ladera Heights/Inglewood communities over the past 15 years as Founder and Senior Pastor of Arise Christian Center.

My heart and vision is to encourage people to go higher in their divine purpose and godly discipline. After spending nearly a year on 102.3 KJLH Spread the Word program, hosting the Encouraging You to Go Higher Broadcast, I’ve come to be known as the “Encouraging Pastor”. I believe that in the hour and season of bad news and bad reports, courage is a vital asset.
