As a member, he participated in many events, dedicating his talents to the churchs athletic department. Dynton joined Saint Philips basketball teams putting his all in every game. Dynton expressed to his pastor his dream of having an athletic facility built to provide a place where youth could participate in constructive character building that included their spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical being. When the gymnasium was completed, Pastor More assured Dynton that his dream has come true. His involvement with sports also led him to dedicate his time and coaching abilities to developing the youth in the community at Bessie Brenham Park and Belvedere Park. Dynton entered into holy matrimony with Ms. Kathy Delaney, a native of St. Petersburg, FL, on September 17, 2012. Dynton and Kathys union was a blessing from God and their love is eternal.
