I thank God for you, Pastor Wesley! I was sick and tired of hearing the same ole stories from my and other pastors, until I saw and heard you one night during revival at TUCC a few years ago. Boy, wasn't I revived? Yes, indeed. You were electrifying, knowledgeable and creative in your sermonic allocution. So I have been watching and listening ever since that day, and I am so glad that I have. Enjoy this day as if it were your last birthday. Do one thing that you haven't done since your last birthday, It will stretch your mind, body and spirit. Happy, Happy Birthday, Brother Howard-John.

Happy Birthday Pastor Wesley, You are one of the reasons why I converted from a Lutheran to a Baptist. The sermons that God plants in your mind, the way the words of God flow in your speech and the kindness that shows through your spirit is a gift from God on a beautiful Sunday morning. Your congregation (and I'm sure others) appreciate the (vocabulary tests lol and) representation of a great man of God. Keep pushing on and know that your works do not go unnoticed. May God bless you with many more years.

Happy Birthday to an awesome Pastor and leader. On one of my first visits to Alfred Street you mentioned that you were a Cowboys fan. I must admit, that was a great selling point. But after capturing my attention, you continue to make me proud to be a member of Alfred Street. I love the charismatic and knowledgeable way you speak on not just biblical issues; but you are also very knowledgeable about political and real world issues. The way you are able to use Bible references to teach the congregation is thought-provoking to say the least. Thanks for helping me enjoy going to church and being an excellent example of a "cool" Christian man for my son and others. Have a great birthday and exceptional year. You deserve it.

Happy birthday Pastor Wesley. You are like a role model, mentor, example, and teacher to me. I am so glad to be part of Alfred Street Baptist Church. You church fits into the same boat as San Diego, CA where the weather is not too hot nor cold. It happens by the service not being too long nor short, helping me understand a lot of what God is speaking to me in a short period of time, not putting a price on offering, etc. Plus, you do not require me to have a college degree in order to be a minister, officer of a ministry, etc.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PASTOR WESLEY, You are a huge part of the reason why I joined Alfred Street Baptist Church. I wanted to find a church where I could receive a powerful word (or as others may say "get fed"), allow me to research and debate the pastor's teachings and bring me closer to God. You are doing wonderful work in our community. Despite the tragedies that we witness during our day-to-day (especially in the Black community) your sermons give me hope. I also became an avid Googler of your extensive vocabulary. And I will say, I have managed to retain a few words that have not only impressed my co-workers, but also myself. Within 2 years I attended 4 other churches prior to ASBC and was a Lutheran. I converted to Baptist at ASBC after attending for 3 1/2 months and haven't turned back. I found God again with your help and that's priceless. I am now a member of the Homeless Ministry, Royal Priesthood and I attend Tuesday Bible study when I can leave work on time. I'm proud to be a faithful (tithe giving lol) member of ASBC. I, as well as many others I know thank God for sending us a human angel. Know that your works do not go unnoticed. Again, happy birthday.

My Dear Pastor, Thank you for changing your mind and ultimately deciding to become our Shepard. I recall felling the angst that you shared with us during your first visit to ASBC and have since thanked God for sending you to us! God we've benefited from your service and presence in so many unbelievable ways. Thanks so much for having the vision to hook us up on the web and airways thereby allowing us to tune in for your sermons when we weren't able to physically receive your praises and prayers in our sanctuary. Like so many other members of our congregation, we proudly share the many bragging rights that you've afforded ASBC to receive. Keep on keeping on my dear Pastor! We're extremely proud to continue our service to the Father, Son and Holy Ghost under your leadership. BTW, we really like the politically aggressive sermons and teachings that you've shared and preached. May God continue to bless and keep you!

When I joined 5 years ago we were at about 3500 members, we have doubled that, in great part to your anointed preaching and compassion for others. God is not done with you yet. Every time I think you have preached the best sermon of your life, you come back the next Sunday and excel even higher. Thank you for being the conduit that you are for the Holy Spirit, because we as a church are continually blessed because of it.

Before my family and I relocated to to Northern Virginia in 2010, that old Deacon told me to make sure to visit Alfred Street. Incidentally, his son is a member here as well. Well we visited in July 2010 and the rest is history. I thank God for your transparency, gift, leadership, and genuine love of people. Out of it all, your transparency helps alot because people can connect with your ministry and believe that we can be changed. I know I have. Happy Birthday to you and be blessed. #CowboysNation!

Pastor Wesley, you changed my life!!! I'm a "recovering Catholic" because of your series "What it means to be Baptist" cerca 2011. I have never been this excited to "READ MY BIBLE" as you so eloquently direct us to do, because I know that the way you break things down has helped to strengthen my faith walk. Keep doing YOU!! God has truly placed his hands upon you and I'm thankful to be a part of this dynamic church Family!!! My son Caleb and I wish you the Happiest of Birthdays!!!

Dear Pastor Wesley, We were thrilled when we discovered that our precious grand baby Ayana has the same birthday as you. Our prayer for her is that she grows up to have a heart for God and to walk with courage and faith as you've been teaching us to do. On this day, we wish you a happy birthday and we pray that God continues to shower you with courageous faith and vision.

Happy Birthday! May your heart rejoice in knowing that, on this day, the world became a brighter, blessed, more beautiful place because you were born. And your life was shared as a gift from God to those who love you and the world around you. Thank you for being a great motivation to us. God bless you.

Happy Birthday H-Dub!!! Words cannot express what a blessing it is to serve in ministry under your leadership. Your preach-u-cating has been awesome in building disciples, expanding knowledge of Christ and his walk, and encouraging those who serve to be a better Christian. I pray this day (the occasion of your 30th birthday...lol!) finds you basking in HIS grace and mercy, beyond any measure that can be imagined. God Bless!!!!
