He and his wife Nelly were invited by relatives of his wife to a service where he was visited by the power of the Holy Spirit in such a supernatural way that from that moment on he attended church services. The Lord placed in him an appetite for the reading of the Bible, he would study it for hours every day and would attend any conference where it was taught. He was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ on August 13, 1989. Soon after he became involved in evangelism with a group of very active church members, they would preach and sing in the streets and give Bible studies. His first local responsibility was giving classes to children in Sunday School. After completing the ministerial courses he began to teach in rural areas where the Bible College had opened locations.

In January 1999 he began leading services with a group of families at a house located in the city of Grand Prairie, Texas.

The bishop has led this church to be a growing and dynamic congregation, the church has a property that is 4.5 acres and is approximately 45,000 square feet of construction. The church is located at the heart of the Dallas metroplex and is only a mile away from the largest entertainment centers in North Texas.
