Bishop Broderick A. Huggins, the senior pastor of the St James Missionary Baptist Church. He was the youngest of six siblings. He has one daughter. He lost his only son, Broderick II, in 2013,  to police gun violence in the city of Oakland, CA.

He and his wife Toni are blessed with several beautiful grandchildren.

Broderick was saved at age 13…preached his first sermon at 18, where 20 gave their lives to Christ. He knew then, without a doubt, what God had planned for his life. 

My drive and commitment to succeed, my vision and love for God’s people, is my passion. What I’ve done for a lifetime, through Kingdom Living and Building is the footprint I’ll leave long after I’m gone. These things are only revealed through action and the things you do when nobody’s looking.
