Welcome To The Cathedral!

Dr. Davin D. Clemons & Bishop Dr. Darnell Gooch, Jr., Pastor/CEO

I greet you in the name that is above every name and that is the name of Christ Jesus. It is my sincere pleasure to welcome our church members and visitors to experience the Cathedral. The Apostle Paul wrote in Acts 11:21 saying, " And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a large number who believed turned to the Lord. I am so honored that you have joined us to celebrate and witness what the Lord has done for us as we celebrate "our Church."

Over the years we have elevated together and with this elevation have afforded us as the church opportunities to walk under an open heaven. We have really been blessed and richly rewarded with connections, resources and we're forever indebted to our Presiding Bishop Oliver Clyde Allen, III, First Gentleman Rashad Burgess and national church, the United Progressive Pentecostal Church Fellowship. First Gentleman, Dr. Davin Clemons, and I have a reason to smile and what we can say is thank you for the years that you have allowed me to serve as the pastor of this great church. Thank you for loving us in our imperfections and in our willingness to serve you and our community. May the grace of God be upon you and the love of God smile in all of our endeavors as we do ministry together.

Humbly written,

Bishop Dr. Darnell Gooch, Jr.,DMin.
