Bro. Micheal and Sis. Antionette Cunningham

Brother Cunningham is a valuable asset to our ministry. As the sound/audio and visual effects engineer for our services, he is usually the first person to arrive to the church and set the atmosphere with a welcoming melody of worship and often the last one to leave tidying up the bathrooms and taking out the trash. He serves as an usher and volunteers as a server for dinner during special programs and events. Sister Cunningham is an original member of Highest Praise Ministries; she serves as the Outreach Director for the Church and the Activities Coordinator for Woman of Excellence.
