I am a man of God, husband to my wife Ranada, father to my princess Jaylin and young knights; Amaun, Chip jr and Trinity and surrogate father to youth throughout the city! I literally love the roles God has given me!
Working with youth over the years I have learned that RELATIONSHIP is the key ingredient. The saying, "They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care" is important in every relationship but I believe it is essential when dealing with young people. As a Mentor I have been fortunate to be able to connect with young people as a big brother, surrogate father, and/or uncle which has allowed me to speak into their lives and be a catalyst toward their intended purpose.
My endeavors are to intentionally pursue youth with an unwavering persistence, serving as a catalyst toward their intended purpose. I am committed to helping them reconnect to their dreams; and give them practical opportunities to exercise their talents, skills, and interests. I vision for and with our youth, until they began to vision for themselves. LEADERSHIP is inevitable when dreams become visible!
