Gilbert Earl Patterson (September 22, 1939 – March 20, 2007)


Gilbert Earl Patterson (September 22, 1939 [1]March 20, 2007) was an American minister who served as presiding bishop and chief apostle of the international Church of God in Christ.

I remember back in the day during my storefront Pentecostal days I’d wake up in the morning to watch the good Bishop preach the word of God.  There were many days Bishop would say something that would either bring me to repentance or stoke the flames of my soul.  God rest his soul.  He’ll be truly missed.  He was a great gift to the Pentecostal church tradition and to the body of Christ at large.  He presided over the largest Pentecostal tradition in the world.

Rest In Peace Bishop
