Maurice grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina and matriculated to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University before enlisting in the United States Marine Corps. In 2013 Maurice was called to be in full-time ministry. He received his training at North Carolina School of Biblical Studies and is currently continuing his education at Grand Canyon University.
Maurice married his wife Britney in 2009 and they now have three children. They have served the Lord together as Maurice has served in the ministry. In 2018, Maurice was led to plant Gate City church in the Greensboro area as more than 50% of residents do not have any church affiliation. Maurice’s goal is to unite the citizens of Greensboro and the surrounding areas by connecting them to each other and to Christ.
