Meet Our Bishop


The Church of God of East Flatbush celebrates a rich heritage and an effective legacy.  On the basis of our history, we seek to expand an organization that will undeniably impact our world.  We dare to have faith in God in a world in which tumultuous disasters, deep suffering and great and diverse needs exist – and to design an urban ministry center that will transcend a single-cell ministry.

The response to these needs calls for a ministry center that boldly empowers individuals, mobilizes people, fosters leadership development, creates opportunities for expansion and makes multicultural, community-wide impact.  We seek to humbly serve people in a broken world.  Why not construct a state-of-the-art worship center, facilities that will house and train youths to be productive, contributing members of society, assisted living facilities for seniors to live with dignity, an adult day care program, an educational institution that provides quality education to underprivileged children and offers scholarships, assistance to struggling single mothers, mentoring programs for ex-offenders, facilities to help the homeless, and much more?  The question is asked, “Why not?” We ask, “Why not us? Why not now?

We are equipped, ready and available to make an indelible impression on our society.  By God’s grace, we seek to make a difference in the lives of men, women, boys and girls.

We are very excited about our initiative to expand services within the greater New York City community – and want to share our plans with you.  Please read this information to see how we will help more people in more ways and how you can be part of the solution.
