founder and president of Awaken International Ministries, is a dynamic and passionate evangelist with a heart for all generations. His unique speaking style captures the full attention of any audience while imparting Biblical wisdom on the many issues facing our society today. From local churches to youth conferences and camps to national organizations on university campuses, he has spoken nationwide for over 22 years, while successfully reaching across all denominational and racial lines.

Algernon has a radical personal testimony on how Jesus Christ changed his life. As a young man, excelling as an athlete, his life's purpose changed when he heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. After serving in the US Navy, Algernon has pursued God's Call to speak boldly and passionately about His transforming Grace to all who would believe. This testimony, along with his gift of evangelism, has enabled him to reach youth and adults in a very powerful and effective way.

In addition to his reach nationwide, Algernon continues to travel internationally, while leading mission trips, planting and equipping churches, and teaching the church on evangelistic ideas and growing authentic Christian community. For many years now, Algernon has been engaged in the fight against human/sex trafficking and remains committed to fighting this epidemic and injustice.

Born and raised in Georgia, Algernon and his family currently live outside of Atlanta.
