Devinion B. Valentine (Valentine is his preferred name), was born in Dallas, TX. Valentine served proudly in the U.S. military for four years and is now overjoyed to serve the Kingdom of God. He received a B.B.A. from the University of Texas at Arlington in Management and a Masters of Divinity from Southwestern Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX.
Valentine served as lead and planting pastor of Amazing Grace Bible Church for eight years in Dallas (Oak Cliff), Tx. He also serve as Church Plant resident and elder at Stonegate Church May 2012-August 2016. He planted Omni Fellowship in Cedar Hill, Tx January 2017. His craving to see the gospel grasp hearts of those living in Cedar Hill and beyond is contagious.
His personal vision is to make God known by loving all people and making disciples of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. He is one who understands the grace and goodness of God and desires to reciprocate these attributes to everyone he meets.
Valentine has been married to Alecia, his companion, lover, and partner in ministry, for over 15 years. They have three children, Nick, Neria and Chasen and are the proud grandparents of Harper and Nixon.
Brandon Williams has been married to his wife Sharonda for 10 years and they have two amazing boys Noah and Isaac. Brandon has led worship for over 15 years in a variety of churches, from small church plants to large established churches. He has witnessed worship leaders who are under-trained, ill-equipped, and isolated. Moreover, many worship leaders run on empty because they neglect their own soul care as it pertains to growing in the gospel. Because of this, God has given Brandon a passion to do his part in bringing greater spiritual health and gospel-centered music to the worship ministry at Omni Fellowship. Brandon has been serving at Omni Fellowship for over two years now and during that time he and his family have grown tremendously through the preaching of the gospel and Christ-centered community.
