Rev. Treadwell is a graduate of both Florida State University with a Bachelor in Political Science and Religion, and Emory University: Candler School of Theology where he received his Masters of Divinity in 2011. Upon graduation from Candler, Rev. Treadwell went into full time pastoral ministry in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. During his time as an associate and senior pastor, God has inspired him to look outside the church in order to meet the needs of the community. Rev.

    Oak Grove, Chattahochee, Florida (Senior Pastor)

    Metropolitan, Washington, D.C. (Associate Minister)

Rev. Treadwell has also completed a M.A.S.S. in History from FAMU, and is on schedule to earn a Ph.D. in History from the Howard University(D.C.) Spring 2016. His research is focused on the history of the A.M.E. Church's nationalism during the Civil War and the theological ramifications of its application. His hope is that his dissertation can be used to identify nuanced forms of nationalism in the black church and black community alike.
