Senior Pastor

Bishop Gregory Ogiste, Sr. 1996 – Present


Under the dynamic leadership of Bishop Ogiste Sr., First Jerusalem experienced tremendous growth spiritually and economically. “O” Taste and see that the Lord is good,” quotes Bishop Ogiste Sr. from Psalms 34:8. Bishop Ogiste Sr. puts these words into action. He broke “religious tradition,” constantly teaching the word of God in an uncompromising way. He is a loving shepherd of a church that calls itself, “The church of a second chance, where Faith, Hope, and Love keeps us together.” I Corinthians 13:13.

At the recommendations of Bishop Ogiste Sr., the congregation approved a most fitting name, “Jerusalem Worship Center,” (October 3, 2002). John 4:23:24. Bishop Ogiste Sr., inspired by God, had a vision to Build God A House”Psalms 127:1 and to set the house in order. Ezekiel 43:10. Our growth is steady, some planting, some watering, and God is continuing the increase. I Corinthians 3:6. The church has a motto of “Our Worship Is For Real”
