Rev. Boyd is pursuing a Master of Divinity Degree at Ecumenical Theological Seminary in Detroit, MI. where his program will be completed in March 2018. Prior to answering his call to enter into the work of the Lord, Pastor Boyd worked for three Fortune 500 Corporations; Ford Motor Credit, Ford Motor Company, and Daimler Trucks North America.

Pastor Boyd has been blessed to study and learn under what he considers two dynamic Pastors in the AME Church, the Rev. Dr. Robert Brumfield at Oak Grove A.M.E., whose preaching and teaching helped awaken the call on his life, and the Rev. Barbara Anthony, founder and Pastor Emerita of Mitcham Chapel AME Church, where under her tutelage he completed his Ministry Practicum in 2015.

Pastor Boyd invites you, and your friends to come worship with the Mitcham Chapel AME. family, we will be blessed by your presence.
