Pastor LaMonthe A. Colquitt, Sr. was born in Torrance, California and grew up in Compton, California. He was recruited in a gang at the age of 7 years old and was educated to the under-world of the streets. His mom worked hard to move her children out of the rapid destruction that plagued their neighborhood and she succeeded and moved her family to Rowland Heights, California. After high school, Pastor LaMonthe joined the U.S. Army where he proudly served his country in Desert Shield and Desert Storm. After the military, he had a car accident where he became an eyewitness to life after death. God allowed the experience of death to show him that the Savior of All is real and his life had to change.
As a single dad, God opened the doors of UNLV for Pastor LaMonthe to receive his Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. As a licensed teacher, home owner, business owner of Learning For Real (tutoring service), Assistant/Youth Pastor and mentor, his love for his children, grandchildren and the children he educated brought on the desire to write children picture books as a way to reach and teach the readers through positive stories. In addition to teaching, Pastor LaMonthe is passionate about outreach ministry and reaching Gods people through gospel rap alongside his UnAshamed to Put in Work family.
Following years of preparation, Pastor LaMonthe was ordained on April 21, 2013. God called him to embark upon his own ministry and on October 4, 2020 the House of Prayer Ministries International began its first service. Now as a Senior Pastor, he is supported in the ministry by his wife and co-Pastor, Zatoyia, their 8 children and 6 grandchildren, his family, friends and Unashamed to Put in Work family. His ultimate desire is to fulfill the Lord's Great Commission.
