Dr. Naman H. Potts, Jr. is the senior founding pastor and prelate of Bread of Heaven Community Church Inc. of Virginia Beach, VA.

Called of God, Potts was licensed to preach by Bishop L.E. Willis, II in September 1993. He was ordained an Elder in the Church of God in Christ, Inc. four years later.
After months of earnest prayer and faithful planning, the Lord allowed this man of God to found Bread of Heaven Outreach Center in March 1997.
