To the People of God:

After two years of ministry located in the Rogersville shopping center the Pastor and First Lady were assigned to the pastorate in another part of God’s vineyard.  The base of inspiration remains solid and is of God. Our presence locally has been transferred to Decatur, Alabama. Located in the historically significant Black Community that has been the home of our new pastorate at Holy Temple Church of God in Christ (COGIC) for the past 94 years.  Our new assignment has a solid congregation that is traditionally and biblically sound.

In addition, we support District, State, and National Church Events in the COGIC: the premier Pentecostal body of believers incorporated in 1907.

We continue under the great leadership of COGIC AL 1st Jurisdictional Prelate, the Honorable, and Highly Esteemed, Bishop OL Meadows. Under his leadership in coordination with Superintendent Bobby R. Sledge, we hit the ground running and have become very active from day one.

We pray that God delivers the faithful continually until we receive our reward!
