Devinion B. Valentine (Valentine is his preferred name), was born in Dallas (from the community of Oak Cliff), TX. Valentine served proudly in the U.S. military for four years and is now overjoyed to serve the Kingdom of God. He received a B.B.A. from the University of Texas at Arlington in Management and a Masters of Divinity from Southwestern Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX. Valentine was blessed to also serve as lead and founding pastor of Amazing Grace Bible Church for eight years.
Valentine has been married to Alecia, his companion, lover, and partner in ministry, for almost 10 years. They have two children, Nick and Neria. They also are the proud grandparents of Harper Valentine.
His personal vision is to make God known by loving all people and making disciples of Jesus Christ. As he looks to the future, he wants people to love Jesus and love others despite their color, class, or culture. He wants to see the love of Christ move the body of Christ to walk in unity and faith. He wants to plant like-minded churches that have a desire to see Revelation 7:9-12 now, and not just in heaven! He wants Omni Fellowship to present Jesus as both glorious and gracious! To that end, please pray for him, his family, and Omni Fellowship.
- Pray that Omni Fellowship exalts Jesus in word and deed.
- Pray that we fight to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
- Pray that God sends people who have a desire to see the eternal kingdom NOW.
- Pray that we will plant MANY multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, and multi-generational churches.
