Part of growing a church is just as much about growing the ministry as it is the congregation. Pastor Leroy does not deny the inevitable. He was able to identify a filler for the days where he has to evangelize outside of church. On these days The House of Praise Worship Center is lead by Minister Xavier Graves. Associate Minister Xavier Graves is an evangelist that goes wherever the Holy Spirits leads him. He has a resounding voice that rages and whispers text from the bible. Also, associate Minister Xavier Graves shares the same principles as Pastor Henderson. The bible states that wherever two or more are gather so is the presence of the Lord. The two are yoked up the with the will do be not only hearers but doers of Gods word.
Associate Minister Xavier Graves comes to pulpit by way of being a former disc jockey and club promoter. Like all of Gods children he is not without sin. But, unlike many he has accepted Christ as his savior. Minister Xavier Graves does not straddle the fence to view which side is more appealing. He walks a righteous and upright life filled with virtue and mediation of Gods word. His only goal in life is to becoming a living sacrifice for king Jesus and do as commanded according to the word.
