Temple of Deliverance was my birth place...growing up there from infancy to adulthood was an experience like none other. My wife and i have agreed to name our last son who will be born in Sept. (Bishop's birthday month)to have the initials of my pastor G.E.P. So in his honor we salute you Bishop and Sis Louise Patterson
I was raised @ Temple of Deliverance, then just Bountiful Blessings and sat under Apostle Patterson from infancy to adulthood..in his memory my wife and I have decided to name our last son to have the initial G.E.P.(Gilbert Earl Patterson)...he was my mentor and spiritual father...i yet miss him greatly.. I learned so much sitting under his leadership. I saw a man who was humble never grasping to be in the spotlight but did everything he could do to not be in spotlight but in the words of Sis.Patterson "G.E. brings good things to light/life".. I will forever love Bishop G.E.Patterson...
