Dr. Maurice C. Valentine
Maurice Valentine is a native of Montevallo, Alabama where he was born and raised. He was called to the ministry, on November 7, 1999, and ordained at Carlton Hill Missionary Baptist Church on April 27 of 2000. In May of 2000, he left Montevallo and moved to Anniston, Alabama to attend Jacksonville State University. It was there he met his spiritual father, Dr. Andra Cunningham of New Life Apostolic Center. It was this connection and influence that began to catapult Maurice into his next phase of ministry.
In 2003, He was ordained as an Elder and appointed as Youth Pastor over the youth ministry. In June 2006, he married his best friend Salisia Valentine. In the beginning, they endured much, with the battling of cancer, but in 2009, through faithfulness and God’s grace they overcame it all, as a matter of fact, Pastor Valentine has been cancer free since 2009.
In 2020, Dr. Valentine had another battle with a disease called diverticulitis. He was placed in the hospital for over 3 months, having 4 major surgeries, and 4 minor surgeries, while battling depression through recovery, BUT GOD! By the Grace, Mercy, and kindness of God, Dr. Valentine is still standing and proclaiming the word of God.
Through this trial, God opened up awareness and passion for those who battle Cancer, Diverticulitis, as well as Depression, and Mental Illness. Dr. Valentine has a desire for all to walk in the wholeness of life. Mind, Body, and Soul. In June 2012, despite barely graduating from Montevallo High School he graduated from the North Carolina School of Theology with his doctorate and a 4.0 GPA!
Maurice Valentine is a Man of God who has overcome and achieved much. He has a passion and a heart for people and desires to see them fulfill their purpose. This is done by the impartation of the Word of God, operating under the unction, and in the Glory of God.
On April 28, 2013, Maurice and his wife were released as leaders, by Apostle Andra Cunningham to start Life Changing Christian Center. This has been a 13-year journey in preparation for Life Changing Christian Center as it has been in the heart of Pastor Valentine for years, but through patience and faithfulness to another's vision, LCCC was birthed.
