Aside from radio, Pastor Dewayne founded the World Lighthouse Worship Center in Grantsville, MD and the Lake Wales Computer Center, Lake Wales, FL.

From a family member's Facebook page:
"His ministry travels took him to many states, Canada, Mozambique, Ghana, South Africa, Namibia, Israel, Egypt, Greece, Kenya, and Peru.
As the owner of Lake Wales Computer Center, Dewayne used his gifts in business and technology to serve communities in Central Florida with his heart and soul.
On the morning of November, 10, Dad was walking to his vehicle on the way to the office when a cardiac event took place. Like the fighter he was, he battled against complications for nine days until he heard the call to come Home..."

A memorial service will be held for him on Tuesday, November 22, at 6pm.
