Campus Vision: To increase the number of African American disciples among college students by building and equipping leaders who will make a positive, lasting impact in their communities and change the world for Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:18-20, 2 Timothy 2:2)

Hadiza and I accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior at young ages, and in college we rededicated our lives to sharing the Gospel of Jesus. God has since led us to become missionaries to African American college students with The Navigators.

We are currently ministering at Bowie State University in Bowie, Maryland. Bowie State University is a Historical Black University (HBCU) and is the home to 5,000 college students.

I graduated from Palmer Theological Seminary receiving my Masters of Divinity, and am a licensed minister. As Campus Director for the Navigators at Bowie State University, we have the opportunity to sow the Gospel into the hearts of young people as we share Biblical principles and our lives through one-to-one interactions, small group meetings, retreats, conferences and mission trips. Every year in our collegiate ministry we see students meet Christ, grow in Him, and become totally available to God during college and after they graduate. Throughout their college careers, we help these students develop strong spiritual foundations and encourage them to pass on what they have learned to their friends and family. We develop life-long laborers in the Kingdom and leaders in the community.

In addition, I sought to reach the youth in our community by God’s grace and using my talents as Gospel Rap Recording artist. Known as “Oppose,” I seek to glorify the Lord by sharing Biblical truth through music and opposing the world’s status quo. Songs from the latest project have been played on Philadelphia’s Radio One 103.9fm, Hampton Road’s radio stations, and countless Internet radio shows heard in other countries and continents around the world. Through God’s sovereignty, Oppose Music continues to challenge the hearts and minds of young people, calling them to live life for Jesus.

As the grateful parents of Lydia Amanda and Osaze Josiah, we as a family are compelled by God’s love for us to know Christ and to make Him known®.
