My area of interest in research is The Misunderstood Branded Identity. About seven years ago, I had the opportunity to be the Director of Marketing and Design over the Mother Church of Full Gospel in Mississippi, which had many churches under its umbrella. I was awakened by the fact that pastors of churches didn't realize that their churches were like businesses that needed to be branded by distinct design, communication with their congregation, and the masses that they are trying to reach. This led me to try and solve the problem by having workshops and many one-on-one consultations with pastors to educate them on the need for branding identity and what it could do for their churches. This made me aware of the fact that there are many who wish to be entrepreneurs, but don't understand the necessity of a branded identity, so I have been on a journey of educating my clients and staying abreast of ways to campaign on their behalf.
