Pastor Marlon Lock

pastor-marlon-lock1It was 1981, at the age of 5, when the Lord spoke to Marlon Antonio Lock and asked him to preach His word. Without hesitation, he said yes. Pastor Lock preached his first sermon at age 10 and also sang his first song: “The Robin”, by The Mighty Clouds of Joy. Since then, he’s been preaching, singing and playing drums at the church in which he grew up, belongs to and now is the Pastor– all to the glory of God.

Young Pastor Lock (as he’s also called) believes people will hear his music and it will inspire them to change their lives. His music can be described as “soulful” Gospel. It’s uplifting and spiritual with a southern twist. His motto is: “I’m not a singer who is a Pastor; I’m a Pastor who God has anointed to sing and compose music.” Before Pastor Lock’s granddad passed (who was the founder of the church) in 2009, he told young Pastor Lock to record the song: “Good Seed”. With validation and consultation with the Lord…His Journey Begins Here!

What is Pastor Lock’s inspiration? He states: “The fact that God gave me another chance and He saved me; my church family, who keeps me laboring in the vineyard and the greatest wife and five children in the world. They make it all worth it…everyday!” His musical influences include: Pastor Marvin Winans, Lee Williams and the Spiritual QC’s, Sam Cooke, R. Kelly, Marvin Gaye, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Anita Baker, Shirley Caesar, William Murphy and his dad.

Pastor Marlon Lock proclaims: “With this project, you’ll realize that you’ve always been a ‘good seed’. You were just a work-in-progress. Now…you’re a Good Seed Project.” The single: “Hear My Prayer” is available now on iTunes, CDbaby, Amazon Music and other online outlets. If paired with the right record label, this project and the artist will produce the perfect union of Spiritual bliss!

Breaking The Chains in 2012

From Relapse to Real Resolution

“Breaking the Chains in 2012”

Is this another year that you’ve set fitness and exercise  goals and are unsure if you’ll meet them…again?   Do you continue to start and stop a fitness program or healthy eating plan, and you don’t know why?  Have you struggled with motivation, goal setting, or understanding much of the jargon regarding physical fitness and healthy eating?   Need a holistic understanding of what it really means to be healthy for you as an individual?  If the answer is YES to any of these questions…

Please attend the first monthly presentation of psycho-educational information with Dr. Carolyn Davis, a licensed psychologist, and expert in the field of sport and performance psychology.  In this workshop, Dr. Davis will discuss the process of what is means to live a healthy lifestyle holistically, and the many roadblocks individuals experience on their way to becoming healthy!  Dr. dom information . Davis believes that often it is not our lack of willpower or the inability of our physical selves to get on board with an exercise or nutrition plan that keeps us from being successful, it is the difficulty we face navigating those mental roadblocks or the “invisible enemies” that get in our way such as poor planning, the lack of information regarding food and it’s role for our bodies, self-esteem concerns, negative body image, negative self-talk, cultural roadblocks, and stages of readiness. web name finder  Dr. Davis will discuss these subjects, as well as how to address these concerns in our fitness plans. Fitness instructors will also be available to discuss various forms of exercise and answer questions.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn new information that will help you to push past those mental and physical boundaries, improve your performance, and meet your healthy lifestyle goals for 2012!
