I'm so Excited to announce that I'm moving to Harrisburg, PA! I was recently accepted into a ministry school called Global School of Supernatural Ministry (GSSM) which is the leadership training program of Global Awakening Ministries!

I gave my life to Jesus in March of 2008 when I was 18 years old and a senior in high school. I had started going back to church after 4 years of running away from God during a dark season in my life battling depression, fear, anxiety, and crippling addictions. I had a lack of hope for my future until I got plugged into Crossroads Church and Regeneration Ministries. There I received the healing and support I needed through various leaders and mentors. With their direction I found a new identity in Christ and grew closer in my relationship with Him. In serving at Crossroads Church since 2008, I fell in love with the local church and met Jesus through the people I served alongside. Developing relationships with my team members, fueled my desire to help the lost see their value through what was done on the Cross. This led me to grow in my leadership capacity for advancing the Kingdom of God in serving and reaching others to greater purpose beyond themselves.
My calling and future revealed…
In 2015 I knew I was called to ministry following an interview for a promotion at work in which afterwards I felt sick to my stomach with conviction. The Holy Spirit spoke to my heart and said, "Manny, is that really the plan I have for you?". I realized then that I never asked the Lord what His Best was for my life. In my willingness to see my future through God’s eyes, the very question I was asking of God was summed up by these three words... Surrender Your Life. In 2018 God’s direction was revealed to me at a couple different conferences put on by Global Awakening Ministries! It was life changing to say the least and awakened a desire in me I’d never experienced but desperately wanted to grow in my walk with God.
The Global School of Supernatural Ministry (GSSM): (check out the school here) is a 2-year program with a potential 3rd year internship that was birthed out of vision to see its students reaching nations for the Kingdom of God. The 1st year focuses on maturing your identity & relationship in Christ while focusing on the fundamentals of street evangelism and the 2nd year focuses on training you for the practical side of ministry like preaching & teaching as well as sending students out nationwide to put on conferences in local churches.
Please pray that God would teach and use me in a mighty way to reach others in His name and help me grow as a leader in ministry. I thank you in advance for your prayers and financial support, this next chapter of my walk with God would not be possible without the love and generosity of so many! You can help support me in my long-term ministry school goals and internship with a one-time donation above.
