In 1991-1992, he became a Certified Lay Speaker. He worked hard in many other areas of the church, including Church Lay Leader, working closely with his Pastor, the Reverend Thomas Fitchett.
Later, Bishop Davis was led by God to St. Matthews Baptist Church in Bishopville, MD.

Bishop Davis has allowed God to use him GREATLY. He started his ministry with only six members and now the ministry has grown to over 140 members. LOOK AT GOD! He not only preaches God's word, but he lives by the word! Bishop Davis is a true man of God.
The motto of his life is: If I can help somebody as I travel along the way, then my living shall not be in vain. One of his favorite scriptures is Philippians 4:13
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!"
