Brother Galvin Danzy's bio in his own words. "Galvin Danzy has been saved and a member of Grace Tabercle Church since the age of 13.  At the age of 16, he was in the Jr. Deacon program where he trained to become a deacon but at the age of 21, he decided to join the military at which time he strayed away from God's calling on his life. When he returned from the military, he was lost but after he struggled with depression and anxiety, it led him to going back to Christ to seek healing because it effected his relationships with his wife and children. He is now an Army veteran, in seminary school as well as a leader in the church, married with 3 children and he and his wife are diligently building God's Kingdom by focusing on God's Principles."
