His mother led him to Christ after being convicted by a Sunday School lesson. He trusted Christ at the age of four and dedicated his life to serve Christ at 17
God has given him many open doors for service and since then he has served as a youth director, bus director, children's church director, evangelist, church planter, missionary with Macedonia World Baptist Missions and pastor.
