The Bishop

Odis Sneed, Jr., was saved at the tender age of seven years old and was baptized at Unity Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California. After a season of controversary Odis was restored in fellowship with God at First Apostolic Church of Inglewood, California under the tutelage of the late Bishop Wayne S. Davis and was baptized again in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and was filled with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gave utterance. In 1985 God laid his hand on Odis and beckoned him to complete the call to ministry.  In 1987 under the tutelage of the late Bishop Wilbert S. McKinley of Brooklyn New York; Odis began to exercise a clearer commitment to truth and was obedient to the heavenly calling with a mandate to praise and worship God with all his might.  He was ordained to preach the Gospel to every creature and to build, teach, train and develop powerful local churches.  

 

After being tried, Odis has proven himself to be, and is known throughout the world as: A Man of Love, Faith and Power with a passion for the lost and a vision for leadership.  Throughout his travels across the globe and walking the streets of the inner city, his word for the world is: "Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. The Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power!  God loves and I do too. In 1994 Odis received his Doctorate in Divinity and founded God's Church International Fellowship in Atlanta, Georgia and began full time ministry.

 

On October 15, 2005 Odis was consecrated according to Apostolic Succession to the sacred office of Bishop in the Lord's Church and was appointed the First Bishop of Georgia for The International Fellowship of Reformed Episcopal Churches.  

 

In 2010 God's Church Internation Fellowship became the Headquarters of all our covenant churches and Impacting A Generation Covenant Church was established in Atlanta Georgia.  

 

Odis is the proud father of seven beautiful daughters.  With his wife Valerie by his side the Lord has been good.

 

Through it all, Bishop Sneed wants to be known only as:  "The Servant of the Lord."
