Bishop Vaughn McLaughlin is a minister of the Word of God based in Jacksonville, Florida. He leads the The Potters House ministry that’s community centered to touch people’s lives.

Like many young people he grew up without his father who abandoned their family. As a result he got involved in drugs that took him down the wrong road. God arrested him nonetheless and gave his life to him.

He later challenged him to make peace with his father and difficult upbringing. That one bold move set him completely free and he encourages others with similar issues to do the same.
