At the precocious age of five, Bishop Robert G. Rudolph dedicated his life to the Lord. He preached his first sermon while standing on a chair in the pulpit two years later. It was clear to all around him that God’s hand was on his life and at the age of 11, Bishop Rudolph was licensed as a minister. Public speaking and discourse were gifts Bishop was given by God, after being delivered from a condition of stuttering. This led to him winning the National Oratorical Contest of the Church Of God In Christ as a teenager. Shortly thereafter, this young man was summoned to the denomination’s world headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee where the late Presiding Bishop J. O. Patterson, Sr., formally ordained him as an elder at the tender age of 16. Rudolph has 33 years of pastoral experience and continues his pastorate at the Calvary Church Of God In Christ and Davis Memorial Church Of God In Christ. Bishop Rudolph is happily married to Lady Michelle Parham Rudolph who supports his ministry wholeheartedly.
