He then began his journey in ministry by furthering his education.

Through his pastorates God has blessed his congregations with abundant growth of souls saved and regenerated, and witnessed tremendous individual growth in the followers of Christ. His travels have taken him to Israel where he was blessed to baptize believers in the river of Jordan. He presently serves on the Christian Healing and Prayer Center Board in Gastonia, North Carolina which prays for health, wellness and  the healing of the soul of mankind. Before retiring from the pastorate, God spoke to Pastor Falls saying that his latter days would be greater than the past. Pastor Falls was clear that God had greater works for him to do.  “The glory of this latter  house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts “Haggai 2:9 KJV”
