Pastor Michael Mitchell Image 01

Pastor Michael Mitchell was called to the ministry in 1997.  He served faithfully under the very capable leadership of Pastor Ellie Moss, Victory Temple Church of God in Christ.   Pastor Mitchell was ordained in August, 2001 by the First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the State of Illinois under Bishop Ocie Booker.
Elder Mitchell continued to serve as Elder and musician at Victory Temple Church of God in Christ until January 2006 at which time, the Lord directed Him to become pastor and founded of Greater Deliverance Church of God in Christ.  
Humbly starting out, the Lord led Pastor Mitchell to start holding Sunday morning worship services in the home until December, 2007 when God blessed the congregation to begin holding services at 850 West 51st Street, Chicago, Illinois; the current location.
Pastor Mitchell has been laboring tirelessly since the church's inception, embracing the Word of the Lord, particularly,"Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase."Job 8:7
Pastor Mitchell's endeavor is to win souls for the kingdom of God; crying loud and sparing not, lifting up His voice like a trumpet, showing the people their transgressions.  He believes that God is going to enlarge Greater Deliverance's territory as He ministers to the needs of the people of God as well as the community by the spoken word of the Lord.  "We have come this far by faith, leaning on the Lord, trusting in His holy word, He has never failed us yet."
