Mervin began playing the piano at the age of 13 at 4th Baptist Church. Since then Mr. Mayo has ministered gospel music in churches, events and sports arenas. In addition to being a Minister of music, he is also a Richmond, Virginia Police Officer and School Resource Officer. His purpose in life is to serve God by serving his community and protecting and serving inner city at risk youth in the process. God spoke to Mervin in a dream and told him to tell people of His goodness by preaching as well as using his gift of singing. Minister Mayo dismissed this first calling in a dream for several years because he felt that it wasn’t what he wanted to do. Eventually, he befriended Pastor Anthony Franklin at work, who asked Mervin to help the music ministry for a little while until he finds a permanent piano player. Mervin played for a little over a year at TRP, now Truth Ministries, before a voice came to him again in a dream telling him to preach God’s Word! He began speaking to God more often and became more obedient.
