Prior to becoming a minister of the gospel he also served as the chairperson of the Deacon ministry as well amongst other capacities. In June 1999, he began his first pastorate at Spring Street Missionary Baptist Church in Henderson, NC. During his tenure, the membership quadrupled from approximately 125 to about 500. While serving Spring Street Missionary Baptist Church they built a new edifice and liquidated the 25-year mortgage in seven years and implemented new and improved ministries to enhance and propel the ministry to greater heights.
Pastor Armstrong was elected as Pastor of Phillips Chapel Missionary Baptist Church on July 15, 2007. Since his arrival he has assessed the culture and needs of the church and has implemented powerful preaching, teaching and ministry that ministers to the total man, spiritually and naturally. Pastor Armstrong has served in several capacities in the High Point Educational Missionary Baptist Association as 2nd Vice President of Christian Education and currently serves as 1st Vice President and Chairperson of the Scholarship Committee. God has endowed this anointed man of God with great vision and we anticipate the manifestation of God’s will be done through impacting the church and the community at-large.
Pastor Armstrong is married to the lovely former Angela Michelle Graham for over 16 years and with their union they have four wonderful children (one adult, three teenagers): Malai, Asa, Chassity, and Kyla. Compelled to helping others, Pastor Armstrong prays that as he preaches, teaches, and sings the gospel, lives will be changed for the better. One of his greatest desires as he submits to God; obeys the voice of God; and follows after God, is that God will continue to develop and make him an effective servant for Christ who makes a significant impact for the Glory of God!
