As a youth, Pastor Berry was a very active member of Little Union Missionary Baptist Church (Houston, Tx.) under the leadership of the late Rev. Dr. A.G. Roberson. He was a member of the youth choir, Jr. Usher’s, a faithful attendee of Sunday School, and other church functions. Pastor Berry accepted his call into the ministry in January 1991 and was licensed and ordained by Dr. Roberson. He became a member of the Northeast Harris County Ministers Alliance and has served on different committees within the organization over the years. It was also at Little Union M.B.C. in 1994, that he married Cynthia A. Prather and began to build a wonderful family. They are the proud parents of three beautiful children (Darius, Brianca, Micaiah). In 1996, Pastor Berry and family became members of New Mt. Calvary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Willie Jones.

In March of 2004, the Greater True Light M.B.C. elected Pastor Berry to be their Shepherd. There have been some major strides made in the ministry of Greater True Light in just a short time. The Lord is truly smiling on the Pastor and People of “True Light”. In the Hands of the Savior and with the Help of the Saints there is, according to Ephesians 3:20 and 4:11-16, a bright future ahead.
