Global Conference of Bishops was founded by our senior Archbishop Dennis Myles Golphin in 2017 as vision to unite episcopal leaders in a common Apostolic global alliance. The GCOB is an academic and ecclesiastical communion of episcopates joined together in common faith and discipline in historic Episcopal training.
We are following God’s call that His Church might be one (John 17:21) by providing an expression that holds certain core beliefs and certain distinctives centered around the convergence of the three major streams of Church worship styles which are Evangelical, Liturgical and Pentecostal.
Furthermore, we are a communion which is in continuity with the apostolic tradition and succession of the ancient Church (Matthew 13:52), and which holds as its highest priority, the cooperative fulfillment of the Great Commandment and the Great Commission (Matthew 22:37-40).
The Global Conference of Bishops will have a foundation of historical Christian essentials in doctrine, worship, and ethical accountibility. However, we will not seek to have authority in matters of doctrine, liturgy or internal administration over any member leader or organization. It is simply our commitment to fellowship, educate, and advise accordingly.
“It is my desire as the senior patriarch of this body of leaders to see to it that we get combined exposure to Theological Terms, Church History, and Ethical values to propel us into a deeper relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. to train and educate newly appointed and seasoned Bishops with a strong emphasis on healthy family development.”
We will accomplish this goal by providing Seminars, Workshops, and times for Fellowship and Spiritual Covering for those who seek a standard of excellence in ministry
The main objective is to serve as an ecumenical conclave of personal enhancement and growth for the communion and welcome new members to the Episcopal Order with dignity.
The GCOB will schedule its conclave per the mandate of the membership with its focus on the continuing education of each episcopate in an atmosphere that is non-intimidating. It will be our goal that the Bishops who attended the GCOB events will leave with an assurance of their position, the dignity of their office and prepared to preside in their reformation or fellowship with the disposition of a learned episcopate, able to stand with any Bishop from any denomination.
