In 1997, Don Sutton is was called into ministry work and ordained to preach and teach the Gospel. He attended seminary school at Trinity Theological Seminary of Indiana from 2003 until 2006, and transferred to the Sacramento Theological Seminary and Bible College in 2007. He has an AA in Biblical Studies, BA in Theology and a MS in Theology and Christian Counseling.
Currently, he has been given a vision for unity in the Body of Christ to be lived out by building a facility where all denominations of the Christian faith can come together on one accord as Paul described in Ephesian 4:4-6 " There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, on faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all, and in you all". This vision, entitled The Metroplex, will provide unity in our communities and have resources to make us stronger together.
His involvement in the Bay Area Gospel Playlist lives out this vision where God's people come together to worship God in Spirit and Truth.
Since 2005, Mr. Sutton has provided assistance to the Richmond Police Department as a police chaplain. He is on-call for various emergencies in the city of Richmond (particularly for victims of crimes, homicides, and more). As an ordained minister with theological training, he is often called upon to provide grief counseling, crisis management, and death notifications.
