Bishop William T. Turner, Jr. &

In Jeremiah 3:15, God speaks through His prophet telling him, “I will give you shepherds according to My heart who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.”

He is a confident, but humble man who has a heart for God and a desire to see God's people mature into the fullness and purpose God has for their lives. Bishop Turner is a compassionate and approachable leader whose life reflects integrity and character. He is a skilled administrator, planner and organizer whose relevant vision for the church is designed to help meet the needs of people on all levels—spiritually, naturally and emotionally. His anointed preaching and teaching style has blessed and help lay the foundation for spiritual growth in the lives of many.
