NEW YORK, Feb. 8, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- In a new episode of the hit web series, PRODIGIES, one of America's youngest ministers, Ezekiel Stoddard, preaches a fiery sermon at the Fullness of Time Church in Capitol Heights, Maryland. Ezekiel writes his own sermons, leads his family's gospel group, and is an officially ordained minister -- an honor many preachers have not yet received after serving for longer than Ezekiel has been alive.

"I'm a servant for God," Ezekiel says, "When I was 7 years old, God spoke to me. ... I want to be an evangelist -- to travel all around the world." His charisma is unparalleled and his faith is unshakeable.

Ezekiel's story is one of faith and family triumphing over diversity. Both of his parents are preachers and his brother sings with him in their church's choir. "I did not want my children to hurt like I have hurt. I, as a young girl, had been raped and I've had my entire family turn their back on me at a very young age," says Ezekiels mother, Pastor Adrienne Smith. "I found Jesus Christ, and I wanted my children to be saved." Smith's parenting has touched her children's hearts. Ezekiel says in his interview, "I really love my mom. I would die for her."

Ezekiel's episode of PRODIGIES, one of four original web series on the THNKR YouTube channel, is online now and is viewable at youtu.be/1CjUHNYzW1E. Please consider writing about Ezekiel's awe-inspiring story and sharing the episode with your friends, family, and colleagues via Facebook. Children of God like Ezekiel deserve to be seen and have their positive spiritual messages heard by as many souls as possible.
