Born in Chicago, Illinois in 1955 and I moved to Macon Georgia after I got fed up with the brutal winters. I served as a Patrol Officer, Mounted Police Officer and a Violent Crimes Detective and Hostage Negotiator. I retired after nearly 20 years of service.
My most heart wrenching moment was in 1994. I was called out to talk to a 17 year old who had barricaded himself in an apartment and started shooting at police officers. I was assigned to the Crisis Intervention Unit as a negotiator at the time. I talked to the young man for nearly 14 hours before the young man committed suicide while I watched and begged him not to. While I talked to the young man, I learned a lot about him and why he was doing what he did. The main reason was he had lost hope because everything he did seemed to be not good enough to better his situation.
I didn’t know it at the time, but later on, this would prove to drive me toward helping as many people as I could.
I confessed my sins to the Lord in 2004. Jesus saved me and then called me to ministry. I am married to Elsasheree Jordan who is in total agreement with the calling the Lord has placed on my life. She is also graced to teach and nurture people as she has experiences of her own. Together we have three sons, one daughter, four grandsons and three granddaughters.
I attended Urban Youth Workers Institute in Atlanta and earned a diploma in Youth Ministry.
I currently serves as a Minister at True Faith Church of God in Christ, under the leadership of Pastor Evans Brown, Sr.
