Our Pastor


I am Pastor Contrell Jenkins and as a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.


I came to be associated with the John Maxwell Team after seeing the demand to lead, teach and mentor was greatly needed and asked of by others; the harvest was plenty, but the laborers were few. I wanted to be sure that I gave my best advice and not just what I’ve heard.
