Our Founder

Who is Bishop G?

Bishop G is Bishop Gary Earls. He is the founder and president of Risen Scepter Ministries International.

Bishop G is a writer, biblical teacher, and speaker. Gary has developed several seminars that he teaches as he travels in developing nations to equip pastors and the people of our Risen Scepter Christian Fellowship churches. One of these being a comprehensive course entitled Discipleship: Transformed into His Image, which helps people understand not only the Gospel but their purpose and responsibility in the body of Christ.

Study

Gary’s primary areas of study through Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and continuing education have been various theological systems such as systematic and biblical theology. Along with this Bishop G holds that “We need to know whose shoulders we stand on,” meaning, knowledge of Church History is vitally important. Gary states that “If pastors are not equipping their people in these basic concepts, they are failing that congregation as well as not protecting them from wrong teaching.”

“It is primarily through the vehicles of good theology, and an appropriate sense of church history that God keeps us on track. Therefore, we should have a passion to protect the Gospel just as the Apostle Paul did. When we protect doctrine, the principles of our faith that are the foundation of our belief, we protect not only our legacy, but the health of the Church for future generations of believers.” Bishop Gary Earls
