       Maurice has been called and appointed by the will of God to be a preacher,apostle and teacher of the gospel of the kingdom and the Word of God. He has been chosen and anointed to serve as God's visionary and faith-partner in the earth with the vision of the Lord. Maurice has the mantle and grace of "Fatherhood" upon him as he humbly serves in the office of a bishop, and serves the body of Christ as an end-time apostle of the Lord. He is a shepherd,mentor and spiritual father to other pastors and ministers both here in America and abroad. Maurice and UCC are on the cutting edge of 21st Century ministry. He has been an "Apostolic Pioneer" in this city, state and region; and he has been used by God to break the traditions of men and the spirit of religion that has held God's people and this region in bondage to the liberty in the knowledge of the truth and the Holy Spirit.
      
       Maurice has also received a diploma from Light Bible Institute from Drs. I. V. and Bridget Hilliard of the New Light Christian Center Church in Houston, Texas.

UCC presently host the North East Alabama College of Theology in Gadsden, a satellite school of the North Carolina College of Theology.
       
      The greatest thing that can be said about him is that he is a born again, God-called, man of God, whom the Lord's hand is upon in a mighty way. He has a heart after God's own heart. He is one who is focused and committed to fulfilling the mandate of God's calling upon his life, and in making sure that God gets all of the glory. He is a gift from God to the body of Christ, and has the signs of apostleship following him.
