While in College under the Leadership of the late Bishop Dr. Robert L.

With the laying on of hands and charge from the Bishop, Pastor Oliver went forth Preaching and Teaching God's Word.

Pastor Oliver has ministered extensively across these United States, and in foreign countries, but his greatest joy is being able to come back to the Jehovah Shammah Apostolic Faith Church, knowing that even while he was away, that the Spirit of God still moved in a great way! Pastor Oliver sacrifices with prayer and fasting to lead the people of God, and Jehovah Shammah is proud and happy to this young man as our Pastor and Leader.
