He was licensed and ordained by Bishop L. C. Young of Boston, MA. He is the son of Elder Henry G. Young and he took him on the road with him as an evangelist and taught him how to be a minister.
As a child, Pastor Young would play church and pretend to preach a sermon. After he finished high school, he wanted to go to college and get away from the church. Before he was admitted to college, he had to take a pretest to see what area he should study. The test showed that he would be good as a social worker or he could major in religion. Pastor Young did not want either, because he wanted to be an engineer.
When he was a freshman in college, God began to deal with him, but he continued to fight. It came to the point, that it would be God’s way or he could not continue in college. He went to church and he gave his life to the Lord and within a month he was filled with the Spirit of God. After he was filled with the Spirit, he was called to the ministry. As a result, he changed his major to religion and psychology and he realize that God had a calling on his life.
