Meet Our Pastor
Bishop Danny Speaks, Sr. is a native of Philadelphia, PA and was raised in a Christian household. An anointed singer and worship leader, Bishop Speaks has been the pastor of Greater Bethlehem Temple Church of the Apostles' Faith since 2009. As a pastor, he sees his entire community as members of his congregation -- even before they've entered into the church.
During the course of his life, Bishop Speaks has overcome many challenges and can truly say that the Lord has kept and covered him. Past experiences with incarceration & drug activity led to a connection between Bishop Speaks and a young man who began ministering to him. Soon after their connection, the "taste" of sin that Bishop Speaks was once imprisoned to no longer had its flavor. Tears of joy were the result of his new found relationship with God.
Over the years, his relationship with God has positioned him for many different roles within the church. Since 2004, Bishop Speaks has served Greater Bethlehem Temple Church of the Apostles' Faith as a Deacon, Minister, Elder, Assistant Pastor and now, Pastor.
In light of these leadership positions and influence given from God, Bishop Speaks knew the continuation of his education was of utmost importance. Currently a student at the Center for Urban Theological Studies (CUTS), he is in pursuit of a Bachelor's degree in both Bible & Ministry and Business Administration.
Bishop Speaks is a devoted husband to his wife Eugenia, and their three children Danny, Malachi and Naomi.
