On Sunday, June 23rd, 2019, we had a special guest visitor who was invited by our youth pastor, Minister Trey DuPont. This guest speaker goes by the name of Kyle Dendy. A young black male, probably in his early to mid 20s and starts off his speaking engagement with spoken word. I was enthused by his sense of poetry: so eloquent, yet melodical. In the back of my head, I was thinking, “this would be so dope if the whole sermon was in spoken word…DIFFERENT!”
Come to find out his spoken word was just the warm-up and prequel to his actual sermon. Kyle Dendy’s sermon was on the book of Matthew 25:14-29, with an emphasis of verse 25. He titled his sermon, “Graduating fro the FEAR of FAILURE.” Kyle wanted us to focus on what our own purpose is and for us to put into perspective where our life is going. Kyle shared some of his personal life stories, when first wrote his first published book, past dreams and aspirations until his present state as a motivational speaker and best-selling author.
To see a young man, a BLACK nan, who is following his vision and serving others as a child of God is beyond inspiring. After 8am service, I was fortunate enough to purchase Kyle Dendy’s most recent book, “The Purpose Playbook” and casually talk to him about my side aspirations of becoming an author as enlightment to others of mental health by writing a poetry book. He was beyond supportive and I look forward as having him as a possible future mentor when I bring the first draft of the book to fruition!
I took notes and read the Purpose Playbook in its entirety within 4 days! Trust me, the book will not disappoint. I encourage you, if you haven’t yet, to purchase “The Purpose Playbook,” which is available on Amazon.
As I was fortunate to get a personalized autograph, Kyle signs my book with the following quote, “Evalina Ikpoh, NO Dream is too big!”.
Kyle, Thank You for sharing your ministry and being an encouragement to others!
