Pastors Joey & Teresa McCollough
In the month of February 2011, Joey and Teresa McCollough were appointed to serve as Senior Pastors at the Theodore Church of God. Together, they surrendered to the Call of God in the year 2000. From that time forward, they have dedicated their lives to Serving God and Loving His People. Their mission is simple, and their vision is clear!! With an unwavering passion, it is their desire to reach out into the surrounding community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to reap the Harvest that’s ripe & ready!!
(John 4:35) “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.”
(Matthew 9:37-38) “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”
Pastor Joey received his license with the Church of God at the rank of exhorter in the year 2003. He then became Ordained as a Minister in 2008. And in 2010, he received his credentials as an Ordained Bishop. For over a decade, Joey & Teresa have served in a variety of ministry positions. From 2000 - 2006, they served as Student Pastors at the St. Elmo Church of God. And from 2006 - 2011, they served as Pastoral Assistants at the Bayou La Batre Church of God. And throughout that period of time, they also served in the areas of Evangelism, Outreach Ministry, Music Ministry, Pastoral Care & Christian Education.
