God chooses messengers who affirms His will for the building of the Kingdom of God in the hearts and minds of the believer. Apostle Dr. Roger J. Hamlet Sr. is the image of such a messenger.

He has acquired various vocational certifications and experiences including mechanics, landscaping, and engineering. The origin of his musicality is derived from a rich family legacy of vocalists, instrumentalists, composers, and producers. Apostle Hamlet is a prolific, accomplished, and accredited organist/pianist, composer, and session vocalist.
