The First Congregational Church of Revere is great church in Revere that is known for charity and setting an example in the city of Revere. The church sponsors “Reach the Beach” which is a week long evangelistic effort on Revere Beach. The church has a locally known food pantry, outreaches to the elderly and a Pro-Life group. The church is partnered with “A Woman’s Concern.” I have been a pro-life activist since 1992.

A Soldier of Christ

I grew up in Detroit, Mi and attended various churches and even spent my last three High School years in a Catholic school. I was not following the Lord. I joined the Army and wandered from the Lord. I even teased a young Christian man for trying to live a righteous life and not going to clubs to pick up women. About a year later after a sergeant from my unit asked me to attend church with him. I was still going to the enlisted clubs. I went to church a few times with him. One day I went before the altar and asked Christ to me my Lord.

The church I went to was charismatic and I was both curious and skeptical about all of the gifts of the Spirit. I spoke with other Christians in my army unit and began to find out who the Christians were. I found out who the Baptists were and who the charismatic believers were. I went to the Christian bookstores, picked up Moody’s Book of Theology and studied the scriptures and denominations to determine that I’m an evangelical Christian. I began to follow Christ in this way since 1987 and had some opportunities to lead bible studies and even occasionally preach. I got married and later joined the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard doesn’t have chaplains at sea so I filled in as the unit’s Protestant Lay Reader. I put together the weekly programs at sea and had a message for the crew. I am due to retire this year and I would like to go full time into the ministry.
