Pastor Kevin Bradford
Kevin Bradford and family (Sharamy, Peyton, and Paisley ) have served First Pentecostal Church full-time in many capacities over the last twenty-one years, and more recently the duty as Pastor. Kevin received his undergraduate studies in Business Administration at California State University Bakersfield, and his master’s degree in Biblical Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary-Pasadena, Ca. He also served the Western District UPCI as Bible Quiz Coordinator (2 yrs), Youth Secretary (4 yrs), and Youth President (2 yrs). He notes that “GBFPC has a rich heritage and we’re appreciative of being able to serve God with such wonderful people who have a wonderful vision – a church focused on following, proclaiming, and celebrating truth.”
Bishop Leon Frost
Bishop Leon Frost has served First Pentecostal Church for most of his life. His first sermon was preached at age twelve. Before becoming Pastor, he worked under our founder, Rev. I.H. Terry in many ministry capacities, as well as administrative duties. He departed FPC in 1978 to take the pastoral duties in Avondale, Arizona. He returned in 1983 to become the pastor of GBFPC. The church has been fortunate to be guided by his 30 and continuing years of leadership. He is known for his stature, business acumen, and leadership. However, those elements of ministry are secondary to his anointed teaching, preaching, and “being” an Overseer.
