About the Founder

Dr. Clarence Sexton was born in 1949 in Selma, Alabama, and grew up in East Tennessee. The oldest of four children, his home life presented many challenges. His family often moved from place to place, creating a life that was very unsettled. He lived in nineteen different places before he entered the third grade. Eventually his mother was left with the responsibility to rear her children alone.

Compassionate people crossed his path and made a difference in his life. Teachers, coaches, and principals, along with others such as Sunday School teachers, choir leaders, and pastors, came alongside and helped to open a door of hope for him. They were used by the Lord to guide him in the discovery of God’s wonderful design for his life. Because others made a difference, Clarence Sexton has devoted his life to be used of God to make a difference in the lives of people. To learn more about Clarence Sexton’s life, click here.
