Mohammed’s religious background was Muslim, but after his conversion, he entered the ministry at the age of 17. Among the educational institutions he attended was Nabarima College, the University of the West Indies with a B.A. degree in History and Sociology, Bethel Bible School, Crusaders Bible School, and Open Bible Institute. Mohammed later served as Senior Master and Dean of Discipline at the Open Bible High School; Vice-Principal of King’s College; and Principal of Open Bible High School. He also served as assistant pastor and pastor of several churches.
Before serving as national overseer, Mohammed’s apparent interest in education opened the door for him to serve as the education director for Trinidad and Tobago/Grenada.
Mohammed is survived by his wife, Helen Rachel; sons, Stephen Dereck; Dave; Darin; Richard Alonzo; and one daughter, Maria.
