Welcome from The Pastor
Pastor Selvin A. White, Jr.
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Welcome to Gospel Mission Ministries, Inc. It is my prayer that you come and join us for our never ending celebration of all the things that the Lord is doing for all of us.
I’ve been a member of Gospel Mission since my early teenage years, and was drawn to the church because of the music and the charisma that burst through the windows and doors every Sunday. Growing up in the South Bronx, there was nothing but trouble in the streets and my mother did her best to keep me going in the wrong direction with my life. I recall one summer day that my mom called me in her room while she was on the telephone with our church’s founder, the late Bishop Rosa Mae Curtis, and she asked me a question: “do you want to learn how to play the piano? Pastor Curtis said that she will teach you.” And the rest, as they say, was history. Learning how to play the piano was a positive activity that kept me from “running the streets,” and God used those piano lessons as a starting point which led to many conversations with Bishop Curtis about life and our purpose for being born.
At Gospel Mission Ministries, we believe and know that God has blessed all of us with purpose, and He wants us to be prosperous in every aspect of our life: spiritually, mentally, physically, socially, and financially. We have plenty of activities for all age groups, with a special focus on our youth. As a husband and father of six (five boys and one girl), family is extremely important to me, and God has blessed me to understand the true value of living a purpose-driven life.
Life is filled with choices that we must make, and it is very important for us to make the right ones. I encourage you and your family & friends to stop by Gospel Mission, and I pray that the worship experience will bless all of your lives as we grow in the grace that God has given us.
