Reaching a New Generation With a Message of Hope

Bishop Dwayne K. Pickett, Sr.

Started From Scratch

The foundation of present day New Jerusalem began being laid almost 99 years ago. It’s a storied past filled with defeats, accomplishments, and growth that started in 1923 when a man of God and 12 believers shared a vision of a church that would initiate change. Joe Davis and his congregation gathered in God’s natural elements with the sky serving as the roof and the ground as the pews. A caring atmosphere, quality leadership, and community outreach attracted people from all ages, religious backgrounds, races, and walks of life.
