Cyril is from Virginia Beach, VA. During his first year at the University of Virginia, Cyril recognized that he was a sinner who was rebelling against a God who had a glorious design for his life. Cyril recognized his desperate need and gave his life to Jesus Christ, experiencing the life transforming grace of God. Soon afterwards, he sensed an inward call to ministry and immediately pursued the training necessary to sharpen his ministerial gifting. After being licensed to preach in Mt. Gilead Missionary Baptist Church by Rev. Dr. Shelton Murphy and graduating from UVA with a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies, Cyril began his formal training, pursuing a Master of Divinity at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, graduating in 2017. Cyril is currently the RUF campus minister at Jackson State University and is transitioning to begin a new RUF chapter at Howard University. When Cyril is not at work in ministry, you can find him hanging out with Jenell, laughing way too hard with friends and family, and vibing out to good music!
