Alvernis began traveling in ministry at the age of seventeen years old. He has been blessed with the opportunity to preach in almost every state in the United States of America as well as several foreign countries, including Kenya, on the beautiful continent of Africa. Being raised in The Church of God In Christ, a popular Pentecostal denomination, gave Alvernis a great appreciation for fellowship and camaraderie. His love for the people of God and genuine appreciation for community inspired him to establish an annual gathering entitled HarvestFest. Literally, thousands of believers have gathered since its inception in October 2005 to experience this one-of-a-kind prayer and praise gathering. Today, a new vision has been born in the heart and soul of this quintessential leader, and that vision is The LYDC (Live Your Dream Conference). The LYDC is designed to minister to those who have a dream and desire to bring their dream into reality. At the heart of everything Alvernis does lies the desire to see everyone experience the abundant life God has provided for His people through Jesus Christ.
