Member Care

As the shepherd who cares for your soul, Bishop Lambert W. Gates, Sr. wants to know about any major events that occur in your life, so that he and his staff can respond in the appropriate ways.


Major life events include hospitalization and surgeries, death of an immediate family member, marriage, the birth or adoption of a child, going away to college, career changes, and moving to another city or state.

The senior pastor believes in ministering to the whole person—mind, body, spirit, and soul. Confidential premarital, marital, individual, and family counseling are offered free of charge to members.
