Rev. Fred Pegues

Rev. Fredrick W. Pegues, married to Rev. Tina Pegues and father to five children, Fredrick Jr., Johnathan, Christina, Faith, and Hope. A graduate of Guilford Technical Community College with an Associate’s Degree in accounting. Currently General Manager for TWC Financial located in Greensboro, North Carolina. I truly believe that all ministry begins at home. I must be the Pastor in my household before I can begin to be Pastor anywhere else. I love God and believe that He is the reason for my existence. I once had someone ask me what I had done to deserve God’s blessing. I could not think of one reason why God should bless me but I could think of plenty of reasons why He shouldn’t. I serve with the understanding that God loves the unloved, heals the broken and forgives those that will not forgive themselves. My favorite scripture is Proverbs 21:1, The heart of the king is in the hands of the father and just like the rivers of water He turns them any way he wants. (My emphasis) It is my reminder that God is in control of all situations and all circumstances. I must let God be God!


Rev. Karen Willis has a passion for serving others.  Karen received her ordination as “traveling elder” under the late Bishop Thomas L. Hoyt Jr. and is presently on the ministerial staff at Reid Memorial C.M.E. Church in Greensboro, NC.  She is an anointed vessel of God that has an incredible gift of ministering in song.  She sings with both the Mass Choir and Gospel Choir at the church, and outside the walls of the church as a special occasion singer.      Rev. Karen Willis

Although Rev. Willis is a student in the Early Childhood Program at Guildford Technical Community College, much of her professional experience has been working as a Certified Nursing Assistant.  As a caregiver, to witness a resident grasp a skill and smile, gives her great joy.  Her motto is, “If I can help somebody along the way, then my living will not be in vain”. She is indeed a helper to all she meets.


Balls Minister Sue J. Robbins, has been in ministry for over 20 years with a strong zeal to serve and a passion for pushing others both young and old to their full potential. Married to my high school sweetheart Brian K. Robbins for over 35 years, he fully supports me in ministry. Together we have three beautiful children, Quinton O’Brian Robbins, Quintessa Joy Robbins-Brown (Joseph Brown) and Quishon Simeon Robbins. In 2017, two special additions were added to our family, a son-in-law Joseph David Brown (March 7, 2017) and our first and only grandchild, Kendrin O’Brian Pegues-Robbins born August, 2017. I have a passion for the word and enjoy sharing devotions, books and any other paraphernalia that encourages others and promotes growth, leading to spiritual maturity and becoming a better “me”. It is my belief that, “iron sharpens iron.” As an EHS Teacher, I believe in education and I strive for excellence in all I put my hands to. I earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Child Development, an Associates Degree of Applied Science in Business Administration and recently (September 9, 2021) earned my Degree in Criminal Justice/Human Service and a minor in Behavioral Psychology from Colorado Technical University graduating magna cum laude. In my leisure time, I enjoy taking long walks, Zumba/fitness, reading, word games and puzzles and spending quality time with my family. I just recently gained an interest in Yoga and have added it to the learning enviroment where I am employed. The children really seem to love it. One of my favorite quotes/sayings is “I’m living to live again!” One of my favorite scriptures among many is, “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” ~ Lamentations 3:22-23.

Tina Pegues

I love the Lord and believe in His saving grace.  I have a heart for the empowering and enlightening of our youth and young adults through the unadulterated word of God.  I believe that the love of God can heal all broken hearts.  By sharing and teaching the word of God with simplicity, I believe the Lord allows me to spread His love and healing power to the others that the Holy Spirit allows me to encounter daily.


Minister Brian Keith Robbins and I have been in ministry for almost two years, licensed as a local preacher and member of The Magnificent Reid Memorial CME Church. I am married to the beautiful Minister Sue J. Robbins for 35 + years and from our union we have three wonderful children. I have one grandson Kendrin O’Brian Robbins whom I love and adore. I am a truck driver and enjoy being out on “the open-road”…. it is when driving that I get a chance to spend time listening to God’s still voice and just talking to Him. I truly enjoy driving. I am also a veteran of the U.S. Army.  My desire is to always be the best me that I can be by working on me every day and by staying out of God’s way, by staying in His will.  “I love The Lord, He heard my cry and pitied every groan; long as I live and troubles rise, I’ll hasten to His throne.”
