After knowing Dr. Flippin for several years and seeing him in action both in North America and in Africa I most heartily endorse him as a man of God equipped to deliver the word of God with clarity, conviction and annointing. We witnessed with pleasure his ability to minister cross-culturally to our pastors and church leaders in Lagos, Nigeria, and he is a man we would be delighted to receive back repeatedly in the future. We recommend him without hesitation as a humble man of God, a sound expositor of the word of God and an evangelist of proven zeal.

Rev. Dr. Gary S. Maxey, Founder, West Africa Theological Seminary, Lagos, Nigeria “It has been a true pleasure to work with Dr. Flippin. I consider him to be a true visionary in every sense of the word. He’s a dedicated leader whose experience and wisdom extend beyond my own lifetime. Nevertheless, when I first started working with him I was surprised at how he is still always open to growth and learning new things. He’s a unique mentor and I’ve definitely enjoyed the pleasure of working with him and look forward to ongoing collaboration in the future”.  Mr. JaRod L. Morris, CEO, Fourfold Business Solutions

Stephon Ferguson – Breathes Life into the Words of Dr. King.  When you listen to the strong and powerful words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. performed through Stephon Ferguson you would think you were listening to Dr. King himself. That’s just how close Ferguson sounds to the late civil rights leader. Many who have heard or seen him perform describe his King renditions as “unbelievable”, “uncanny” and “pitch perfect”. Mr. Ferguson is an amazing talent who entertains, uplifts and inspires every time he performs.
