On September the 21st , 2015, a vision was placed upon the heart of Pastor Jeffrey Lamarr Davidson. The vision was to start a ministry inspired by Ezekiel 34: 1-4.
Pastor Davidson contacted several close friends on October 7th, 2015, to discuss the vision because, “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” (Prov. 11:14) Expecting to hear “Not another church”, the response instead was “get started immediately.” After fasting and prayer, a second call was made on 10 Oct. to determine a name for the vision, a starting date for the vision and finally who would assist. Sister Gisele Philips, Sister Wendy Davis, Brother Malcolm Dillard and Pastor Jeff Davidson immediately got to work and held house services under the name of Come As You Are Ministries (C.A.Y.A.M).
