The first time that I met and “fellowshiped” with Reformed pastors was in 2009. It was hosted and organized by the late Rev. Dr. Ed Bradley of McLean Presbyterian Church and Oakseed Ministries International. It marked a major milestone in my spiritual journey.

Last year, I visited pastors and churches in the Washington DC area for the third time. In response to my request for supervision and accountability, officers of the Potomac Presbytery (www.PotomacPresbytery.org) of the Presbyterian Church in America (www.PCAnet.org) met and concluded that an Oversight Committee be established for me. Since then, for 9 months months now, I have enjoyed and tremendously benefited from the love, friendship, supervision, direction, counsel, accountability and prayers that these men of God have been blessing me with. It’s beyond words!
