From the Desk of the Presiding Bishop

Over the past 115 years, the Church Of God In Christ (COGIC) has become the largest predominantly African-American Pentecostal denomination in North America with more than 12,000 congregations in 112 countries.  Helping thousands of men and women through missions, financial literacy, employment, and educational assistance. We want to do more, we need to do more, but we need your help!

COGIC Laity 2022 is our campaign to encourage the many lay members of the church to give $20.  This gift will be vast-reaching and will help the Church Of God In Christ continue to be an example of the love of Jesus Christ.

God blesses us when we come together in unity.  I would like to see one million Church Of God In Christ lay members stand tall, take action and declare that I am a “COGIC Laity 2022 Supporter!”  Your gift of $20 will undoubtedly further the work we are doing in the United States and around the world.

I believe inactivity to be the junkyard of dreams and visions.  I therefore encourage you to take action by dutifully sowing your COGIC Laity 2022 gift today!


Bishop J. Drew Sheard
Presiding Bishop & Chief Apostle



A forward-thinking visionary, Bishop J. Drew Sheard views our international potential for what it is: World-impacting. Under his leadership, our Church maintains a stable presence on globally with nearly 6.5 million members. With such strong numbers and growing as the saints establish a central network through their pledged laity support, our many different ethnicities, languages and cultures will quickly explode with the force we possess in achieving the same goal, under the common nationality of Holiness.


The Church Of God In Christ celebrates the birth of our founder, Bishop Charles Harrison Mason yearly in the month of September. Bishop Mason’s unwavering loyalty to God and leadership established for us a Pentecostal identity that has empowered millions. His quintessential labor and legacy enveloped a global prototype for the continuation and expansion of ministry that is broader, healthier and stronger!


From the few humble seeds which were planted at our inception, the Church Of God In Christ soil is as fertile today as the first steel beams driven into the foundation that yet holds together our beloved landmark Mason Temple. Since the death of Bishop Mason, the Church Of God In Christ has continued to stand as a beacon of hope to men and women, boys and girls everywhere. And we cannot sit down now, we must continue to stand!

Stand with us, your gift will go a long way in providing help to those in need. Let’s build our worldwide network and set a record-breaking one million gifts of just $20.
