Our founder Bishop Albert Ervin Jr. in May of 2010 felt the call of God to set the church in order for our future. The Bishop announced that should any circumstances arise that shall call for him to go home and live with the Lord that Elder Darrin Theus would receive the torch to become Gospel Temple's next Overseer and Pastor. As God would have it, on June 28, 2010 he called the Bishop home to eternal rest.
