After high school, Pastor Fleming attended Cisco Junior College, in Cisco, Texas, where he received an Associate’s Degree of Applied Arts in 1984.  He later graduated from Huston-Tillotson College, Austin, Texas, in May 2000 where he received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration.  Pastor Fleming also attended the Austin Graduate School of Theology in 2002.  He received a Master's Degree in the Theological Studies from the Austin Graduate School of Theology on May 17, 2015.


Pastor Fleming rededicated his life to Christ and reunited with Olivet on January 29, 1995.  He accepted his call to the preaching ministry in August 1995 and served as Olivet’s Youth Minister and Minister of Discipleship.  He was selected to be the Pastor of the Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Odessa, Texas, and was ordained a pastor by the Olivet Church in 2002.  He served as pastor at Mt.
