Meet Our Leaders
Bishop Dominic Curry was born and raised in our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. It was there in the District where Curry and his family attended their neighborhood church where he was introduced to Jesus Christ at an early age. Bishop Curry was baptized in the name of our Lord in 1984 at Gospel Ark Temple Bible Way Church under the leadership of the late Dr. John Lamb. It was under the tutelage of this foundational leadership that he then later in 1987 received the precious gift of the Holy Spirit. Like many children who were raised in the church, he strayed and went his way, as opposed to God’s way.
