Maurice” Running Man” Maddox, an Anderson, South Carolina native was originally born in Columbia, South Carolina and is the son of Rev. John Maddox and the late Mrs. Carrie Maddox. Although born with health issues, his family’s faith in God has been the solid foundation that he has always been taught about and anchored on.
A 1999 Jordan High School Graduate in Columbus, GA. began to chart the desires of his heart and as life would have it he chose to relocate to Atlanta, GA which eventually led to a life-changing experience like no other. Mr. Maddox was led to New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and was shepherded by Bishop Eddie L. Long. Through the taught word, he was encouraged, uplifted, inspired and learned how to survive. Maurice at the time had a burning desire to follow his dream and while pushing to accomplish that dream, life’s unpredictable circumstances caused him to be homeless for eight years. Yet he continued with one determination in mine which was to win! While attempting to start his own entertainment company, he also worked as a promoter, an event planner, and held down various other jobs. Because of his press to believe in himself and have faith he was afforded various opportunities within the Music Industry and has been a part of the industry since 2010. God began opening many doors for him, He has been blessed to work with Gospel Fest, BET Sunday Best, Radio One, 102.5 FM Internship, Joy fest, Steve Harvey Neighborhood Awards, The Dove Awards, The Stellar Awards, and The Trumpet Awards. As CEO of Running Man Productions, he has hosted various company-based events such as Open Mic Nights, Youth Conferences, and various Productions.
At the age of 35, Mr. Maddox accepted his calling in the gospel ministry and was ready to be used by God. As an adolescent, he sensed the call of God on his life but didn’t know who God was in his life and ran from this drawing and calling of God until the age of 21. God has a unique way of loving on us and getting us to a place of true relationship with him and through numerous humbling experiences his hand was on Maurice all along. Mr. Maddox now Minister Maddox has served as a prayer warrior and P.R. liaison at Soul Network Center of Atlanta. He has since then returned to his foundational home of worship New Birth and is a faithful servant in the house of God. Future for endeavors for Mr. Maddox includes working with local and international artists as well as traveling around the world promoting the gospel of Jesus Christ until the day of Christ's return.
