Bishop Norris Woods Sr. took over as pastor in September of 2012. He instilled the idea of recovery into the church’s mission. The church started the Voices of Youth campaign and organized men’s and women’s conferences. With Gods help we are just getting started, let's keep it moving.

As a husband of 35 years to a beautiful and supportive wife (Michelle), a father of eight, a grandfather of 21, and a great grandfather of 1. Bishop Woods wanted to ensure that the community’s children are in a strong, supportive environment. Together with his wife, Sis Michelle B Woods, they were driven by the idea of giving young people a place where they can be heard, to showcase their talents and most importantly, be a part of something positive.

Don't Give Up




Women’s conferences focus on health, parenthood and marriage. The concept changes each year. Whereas the men's conference, Voices of a Godly Man(Man to Man), allows young men to see adult men in their natural habitat, teaches them about leadership, guiding families and responsibility. I come from a great background My mother and father were great motivators. My dad was a Navy man; my mother was a nurse. In our family, failure was not an option.

But along the way my life took a turn to the point at which I didn’t care about much of anything I was alive but not living, One day I just got tired of living my life without a purpose and I decided to go back to my roots — church. The only thing I wanted to do was find peace and I knew I could find it in church. I never thought that I would become a pastor but I realized that all my past was for my present. Everything I went through was preparing me for the work I am doing now which is why I am so passionate about never giving up on anyone.

My ministry is built on recovery. I believe God has designed all of us, to help everyone recover from whatever they are going through. I know someone helped me. A gentleman came and prayed with me in the middle of a lumber yard in Mill port, AL at a time when I was close to giving up completely and my whole concept of life changed. I wanted too not only be alive, but to live and to make a difference. Unbeknownst to me the man God sent to pray with me was Bishop: Leonard R Howell, of Aberdeen Ms, and Presiding General Bishop over ALL NATIONS MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL. Wow; God came for me through this Bishop. From that moment on; Every thought, idea and action has been driven by God to make sure that the next person that's going through can see God in all my actions.

BE THE MIRROR; let someone see the good in them, through you.
