Major Kay

Born and raised in the vibrant city of Charlotte, North Carolina, Major’s journey to prevent domestic violence started in his hometown. He graduated from Harry P. Hardin High School in 1983 and earned his BS in Criminal Justice from North Carolina Central in 1988. He felt called to serve through the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department in October 1989, which began a distinguished thirty-year career in law enforcement.

Major’s time in the force was characterized by his service in the Vice and Narcotics division, where he focused on Street Drug Interdiction, and later, in the Special Victim’s Unit. A beacon in the department, Major garnered accolades that recognized his outstanding contributions and remarkable case clearance, particularly in the Special Victim’s Unit.

His commitment to serving also extended beyond the investigative realm, as he actively participated in community events that raised awareness about domestic violence. From speaking engagements to panel discussions, Major used his voice to shed light on the critical issues surrounding domestic violence — especially among teens. His involvement in community meetings, events at high schools, and collaboration with various organizations showcased Major’s comprehensive approach and dedication to addressing domestic violence.

In May 2020, Major achieved a significant milestone by earning his Master of Divinity from Hood Theological Seminary, graduating Cum Laude with concentrations in Biblical Studies, Theology, and Social Ethics.

As someone deeply rooted in his faith, it was a joy and honor for Major to join the ministry of Mount Carmel Baptist Church, where he has been a lifelong member,  in June 2015. Currently serving as an associate minister, leader of the Men’s Ministry, and Coach of the Missions Team at Mount Carmel Baptist Church, Major continues to weave his passion for God into every aspect of his life.

Major is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree, specializing in Homiletics and Preaching, Major remains steadfast in his goal to live passionately in the word of God.
