When were you called to ministry?
I was called to ministry when I was about 14 years old in Oakland, CA. I went to a church called New Hope Baptist Church and I can remember one night being a at a revival meeting and there was a young minister there and I felt the strong call of God on my life. I grew up in a family of Sunday school teachers, superintendents, mission presidents…one of my cousins was a pastor here—
