In January 2013, Pastor Cody and his wife Angela were called to start a Gospel-centered, non-denominational house of Worship in Apex, NC.
Born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, he accepted Jesus Christ at a young age and continues to learn about the wonderful promises of God and love of Jesus Christ. His years of ministry include serving in the office of Deacon and Elder. He has also faithfully served in the following Ministries: Christian Education, Discipleship, Media, Music ministry, and Youth, and serves as the personal mentor to young and older men alike.
In 2009 he was called to step into a higher calling in Christ, by way of ministering the Word of God to the people of God. He has received the mantle of various gifts of the Spirit, which are: teaching, the word of wisdom and knowledge, faith, healing, prophecy and discernment. He continues to flow in the gifts of the Spirit as the Holy Spirit permits.
He was licensed, ordained and commissioned to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Mount Zion Church located in Cary North Carolina. He retired from the United States Army after serving 20 years and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology from Strayer University. However, his passion for Gods people exceeds IT.
Pastor Daryl is passionate about proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, making the Word of God relevant in the lives of Gods people and building the kingdom of God in the congregation and community. NLM is a ministry committed to seeing the bound and the oppressed set free. Pastor Cody’s, desire to pastor with a shepherd’s heart, has allowed him to minister encouragement to both men and women giving them the tools to live a new life through Jesus Christ.
Born and raised in Saginaw Michigan, Angela surrendered to Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at the young age of 19. However it wasn’t until the age of 25 that she became an active member of her local church after ending her tour of duty with the U.S. Army. Participation in her local church included the following Ministries: Outreach, Adult Choir, Discipleship, Adult Bible Study and Christian Education.
She is the loving mother of five and wife of Pastor Daryl. She is also a minister of the gospel for NLM. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology and a Master’s Degree in Networking Technologies from Strayer University.
First Lady Angela has a quiet disposition but it is definitely not quiet when it comes to acknowledging the Lord, praising God and worshipping him as well. She is passionate about the unadulterated word of God, as the Word is what has instructed, guided and matured her to be the person she is today. She credits the teachings to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, her former Pastor (Willie Harris Jr.) and last but certainly not least, her husband, Pastor Daryl Cody.
