 After years of doing ministry in a more traditional paradigm, the Lord laid on Fate's heart to do ministry with more contemporary methodology within the fellowship of the churches of Christ. Without departing from his restoration roots, he began the Metropolitan congregation with a group of sold out disciples who are willing to do whatever it takes to be a great congregation for Jesus.

Fate saw a need to reach out to people which may have been turned off and/or turned away by the customary methodology in some churches of Christ. He is often heard to say, "We are reaching out to those whom others in our fellowship may miss." This movement is not anti-establishment but is instead pro evangelistic. As the apostle Paul said in I Corinthians 9:22, "Among the weak in faith I become weak like one of them, in order to win them. So I become all things to all people, that I may save some of them by whatever means are possible." So don't be surprised at the usage of drama, praise teams, immediate prayer, and other methods to help people become fully functioning followers of Christ.

Fate Hagood III was born April 25, 1962 in Birmingham Alabama to Fate Jr. and Irene Hagood. Fate has two younger siblings. Rudy Renard Hagood (brother), and Shatay Deese (sister).

He matriculated through elementary, junior high, and high schools in the Compton and Los Angeles Unified School Districts. He graduated from Dominguez High in 1979. Fate received several awards and commendations for art, theater, sports, education, and writing as a young man. Among those were Mr. State and National Youth conference and the G. P. Bowser award for ministerial excellence. He graduated from Southwestern Christian College with a Bachelor Of Arts in Bible/Religious Education and from Cal State Dominguez Hills University with a Certified Professional Teaching Credential. He is presently entered for enrollment at Lubbock Christian University.

Fate worked as a public school teacher for 15 years. He also worked as a youth minister, associate minister, pulpit minister, and ministering evangelist.

Fate received his religious training through the teaching, tutelage, and tuning of the Figueroa Church of Christ, Christian schools, and men such as R. N. Hogan (minister/pastor at Figueroa Church of Christ), Calvin Bowers (minister at Figueroa Church of Christ), Kinwood Devore(minister at Metropolitan Church of Christ -San Francisco), Richard Barclay(minister/pastor at Cashmere Gardens Church of Christ), Kenneth Greene(minister at Metropolitan Church of Christ-Dallas), Chuck Ferguson (professor at Bay Area School of Preaching), John Brown (professor at Bay Area School of Preaching), and many others. His greatest inspiration in the Christian walk is his mother, Irene Hagood.
