On August 18, 2001 Reverend Mills preached his initial sermon at New Macedonia Baptist Church in Pocomoke City, Maryland. While at New Macedonia, under the outstanding leadership, nurturing and guidance of Bishop Isaac Jenkins, Sr.,
he was actively involved in various ministries including the Men’s Prayer Ministry, the Men’s Night Out Ministry, President of the Isaac Jenkins Senior Chorale, and a member of the Trustee Board for a brief period. Continuing his quest for kingdom building, Reverend Mills has been actively involved with Lift Them Up and Support Ministries (LTUSM) since 2002 and is presently the Treasurer for the organization.

On Saturday, July 22, 2006, Reverend Mills was ordained at New Macedonia Baptist Church in Pocomoke City, Maryland. Installed as the 12th Pastor of Mount Carmel Baptist Church in Princess Anne, Maryland on Saturday, August 12, 2006, Reverend Mills loves serving the Lord and providing service to God’s people. Known as “The Church With A Heart For The Community,” Mount Carmel has continued to grow and prosper under Reverend Mills’ leadership. Following the vision of God, Pastor Mills led the charge for the construction of a new church which was completed in 8 months and rededicated in January 2010. On May 29, 2013, the final payment was made on the mortgage and God allowed the church to be paid for in a record forty-one (41) months.
For the past 33 years, Reverend Mills has been employed by Delmarva Power in various capacities. His current position is Distribution Supervisor. He graduated with an Associate’s degree in June 2002 from the Christian World College of Theology in Salisbury, Maryland.
His favorite scripture, Romans 12:2, is his heart’s desire for the people of today-- “AND BE NOT CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD: BUT BE YE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND, THAT YE MAY PROVE WHAT IS THAT GOOD, AND ACCEPTABLE, AND PERFECT, WILL OF GOD.” Reverend Mills believes that if you will just change your mind, you can change your situation.
