A short list of his background includes; The Cathedrals, The Goffs, Coy Cook & The Senators, and The Rhythm Masters. He has performed in events led by Jerry Falwell, Pat Robinson, Rex Humbard, Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, and Paul Conn. Recording and performing on four #1 songs, garnering three Dove nominations, a Gospel Music News Award, owning his own group; Chariot, opening for Mike Huckabee, and achieving Gold status with his “This is Love,” is only a brief overview of his 45 years of dedication, contributions, and accolades that will be stamped in the pages of Gospel Music history.
Dykes’s passion for his music led him into marketing, media, and financial consulting that would not only secure his involvement in the industry, but would change the course of many of his clients’ paths to success. His expertise in banking and finance has given him the opportunity to reach out to a multitude of churches and ministries in distress. A position as Chief Marketing Officer for Christian Televison Network, Sky Angel, allowed him to design and implement its sales and marketing initiatives. Previously, he served as Executive Vice President, Business Development at Church Mortgage Acceptance Co., LLC (CMAC) where he played a key role in providing over $2 billion in financing to churches nationwide in need of refinancing, renovation, or expansion. Dykes studied finance at the University of Cincinnati and vocal performance at the Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati. He attended seminary at Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, Tennessee, received his Doctorate of Divinity from Heritage Baptist University, and serves on the Board of Trustees at Davis College in Binghamton, NY.
Dykes was brought on board by The Mansion Entertainment in 2010 to spearhead the development of Manor House Music and Cheyenne Record labels. In addition, his expertise as Executive Director has enabled him to revive Impact Records, the first Gospel label to garner Gold status, with the Gaither’s “Allelujah: Praise Gathering.”

Dykes says, “I feel really good about this project. Revival starts with each of us as individuals and I hope to pass along that passion and fire that I feel when I share the songs on my project. I truly felt an awakening and the spirit of revival as I recorded it. It’s been a lifelong blessing to be a part of the message that stirs souls to Christ. I am also blessed to be getting a top-knotch project done with Pathway Records. Thank you to those who support my ministry and make blessings like these happen.
Dykes continues to travel to speaking and singing engagements across the country and is frequently asked to MC concerts and events. He and wife, Jae Lynne, reside in Cincinnati, OH where they attend Landmark Baptist Church.
