Reverend Parker is a proud graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts, where he majored in Vocal Music. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from Coppin State University and a Master of Divinity degree from Wesley Theological Seminary. In addition, Pastor P, as he is affectionately known, is a Provisional Elder in The United Methodist Church.
Pastor P accepted a call to ministry at 16 years old and from that time has committed to living out that call however and wherever God desires. Pastor P currently serves as Lead Pastor of Bells United Methodist Church in Suitland, Maryland and United Methodist Church of the Redeemer in Temple Hills, Maryland. Under appointment in the United Methodist Church since 2012, Pastor P has served the Church in a variety of ways and places. He has been blessed to pastor several local churches throughout Maryland and blessed to preach and teach throughout the United States and abroad. One of his most treasured memories is preaching in Seoul, Korea.
Desiring to use all his gifts for the advancement of God’s Kingdom and aiming to live out the words of Isaiah 61:4, “They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruin cities that have been devastated for generations,” Reverend Parker is on the move for bringing God glory in all he does and being a vessel through which God can transform lives.
