He joined Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in 2007. He was a faithful servant of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church for over 13 years. He was active in church and was always willing to help out where he could.  He loved teaching Sunday School attending Bible Study and Ushering. On May 16, 2016, he was ordained as a Deacon by the Reverend Phillip A. Spann.
