Proverbs 22:6 says:
"Train up a child in the way he should go [and in keeping with his individual gift or bent], and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
This scripture is what motivated Pastor John R. Fortson, Jr. to accept the call on his life, not only to train our children but to recognize the individual gifts they possess.
A father of five children, Stephen, Shalia, Keelon, Cheyna, and Daysha, God has qualified him, not only for a household ministry, but one through experience for many others.
He is known for saying, "If we don't teach and train them, the world will be more than glad to take our place." This is not only a quote, but a living testimony from where God has brought him.
Pastor John Jr. has the help of a wonderful wife, Doreen, who assists him in the ministry; loving parents, Apostle Cheryl and Pastor John Fortson, Sr., and a staff of many who believe we are mandated by God to train the future generations to come. Together, we believe it is time to take authority over darkness before darkness takes authority over our children. Pastor John Jr. received his degree from the Perfecting School of Ministry. He is not only excited, but ready to train today's children to be tomorrow's leaders.
