My wife and I are both products of the Bus Ministry. At the age of 12, I began riding the church bus to International Baptist Church in Brooklyn, New York. Two years later, I trusted Christ as my Savior and continued riding the bus faithfully to church. In 1996, I surrendered my life to preach God’s Word. In 1998, I graduated from the International Christian School and in the fall I enrolled in Bible college. In 2002, I graduated from Bible college and married Felicity. We served in the area for a year while waiting for Felicity to graduate. In the summer of 2003, we followed the will of God and fulfilled my dream to work for our home church. We served the Lord for 9 years in Brooklyn. The Lord then put a burden in my heart to pastor. We prayed and fasted and the Lord directed us to the Calvary Baptist Church of Carteret, N.J. I candidated on August 10, 2014 and became pastor on September 7, 2014. We have 3 children Scott, Jake, and Brooke Basdeo.
Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
