Pastoral leadership provides many avenues of service for Bishop Nelson Gatlin, Pastor of Mitchell Chapel Church of God in Christ. The congregation of Mitchell Chapel will sponsor a food giveaway as their pastor leads his church to influence service in many other Northeast Texas churches.
The “Rescue the Perishing” Food Giveaway, sponsored annually by the congregation of Mitchell Chapel Church of God in Christ, will take place on Saturday December 19 at the church, 402 South Jackson Street. One hundred bags of food will be distributed to individuals who come that morning, while supplies last. You are asked to present an ID and proof of local residence with a utility bill. One bag per household, please.

In 2015, Gatlin was elected Bishop of the N E Texas Jurisdiction, he now presides over 64 churches. Plans are being made to re-locate the Jurisdictional headquarters to Sulphur Springs in 2016.
