In early 1999, Bishop Taylor along with his wife, Pastor Carol Taylor and his children, heeded the call to Pastor.  In September of 1999 Bishop Taylor opened the doors to Word of Faith Outreach Ministry.

  In 2004 Bishop Taylor experienced his first of many foreign mission trips launching him into his international ministry. After traveling to Port au Prince, Haiti, Bishop Taylor began an extensive foreign travel experience which included evangelizing, preaching and teaching the gospel.  This experience led him to working in the missionary field first in Haiti, then Guatemala, El Salvador, Croatia, Serbia, Guyana, South America, Turks and Caicos Islands, Ghana, West Africa, and in 2013 Nairobi, Kenya.

 Bishop Taylor along with his wife were ordained Elder and Evangelist through the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, and served with the D.C, Delaware and Maryland District Council until 2010.  During this year of change, Bishop Taylor began his nonprofit, Partnership in Christ International.
