“While my mother certainly is a hero to me for teaching me how to selflessly care for others, my ‘little’ brother Quinton Pratt is perhaps my biggest hero. In his health-shortened life, Quinton taught me how to persevere, laugh like a kid, be patient and encouraging, and become excited about helping others.
“I am in ministry because God wouldn’t let go of me. My calling to Ardmore is no doubt God’s hand pushing me to employ my passion for encouraging others to reach out to the least of these using what I have gained in business, leadership skills and experience in working with people hurting and in need.”
