One of Apostle Wallace’s greatest gifts is to discern the will of God and where God is taking the Church. He has an embedded desire to please God and to do only His will.

Apostle Wallace took this mission seriously and it is what he does on a daily basis…birth and equips leaders. Apostle Wallace is truly doing the work that Jesus called us ALL to do and that is to make disciples of all nations. At any given time you will find him training disciples to be like Christ. Apostle Wallace is not only making disciples, but equipping them to go out and establish churches to make more disciples all around the world. To go out and teach the Good News, teach the truth and uncompromising Word of God.
