Mr. Jean Pierre
Hi, I’m Obed
the mystery man behind Integer Man.
I grew up in a home with both my parents, but it’s not until they got separated that God began to open my eyes to certain issues. Their split hit me pretty hard, and I was not equipped to handle it.
My Identity, my Inheritance, and the chance of me having an Impact was being stripped away from me. By God’s grace I found community within my home as my relationship with my siblings grew, and I found an amazing christian family in my home church at Christian Mission Pentecostal Tabernacle in Cambridge,MA. There are also a number of other people that have been there along the way goading me into my destiny.
These last few years of my life have helped me understand the importance of relationships. Relationship is important to God too, so much so that He gave men the freedom of will. I may not be able to prevent anyone else from going through life’s difficulties, but no man should have to deal with life’s pressures alone. So I decided to be a bridge that connects people together, because if it were not for the people that God placed in my life I don’t know where I would be.
The hope is that you and I will get to know each other as this journey of defining manhood unfolds. In the meantime, here are 10 facts about me:
1.) I loveeeeeeeeeeee Jesus!
2.) Obed is a biblical name that means servant.
3.) I was born in Haiti, on my porch.
4.) My favorite color is blue.
5.) I am a Lakers fan (and no, not because Lebron went there!)
6.) My favorite male vocalist is Mali Music.
7.) I am the youngest of 5 kids.
8.) The first and last time I got on a rollercoaster (Bizzaro) I got sick for 3 days!
9.) I can’t swim, so don’t ask me to go on no boats.
10.) My goal in life is to live up to my name by serving others. That’s why you are here now.
