Bishop Joseph Brinson Jr. is the Presiding Prelate of Covenant of Grace Fellowship International (COGFI). He is a man on a mission and is taking over territory for the Kingdom of God. There are some leaders blessed with a unique anointing to disciple others and propel them into their destiny. Bishop Joseph Brinson Jr. is, without a doubt, such a leader.
Gifted with the ability to expound upon God's word and release captives by virtue of the heavy prophetic mantle that rests upon his life, Bishop Brinson is shaking up the world for the glory of God.
A dynamically gifted Preacher, Teacher, Singer, Counselor and Revivalist reared from an anointed lineage of called vessels, this Shepherd is assigned to reach and deliver nations. He is committed to ministry, following in the footsteps of his father, Bishop Joseph Brinson, Sr. , where he learned as a child to reverence and fear the Lord.
Though firmly fixed in his calling today, at one point in his life, Bishop, who is also the Founder of UNITY FEST, WNY's premiere annual regional conference, pursued selfish ambitions that led him along a path of destruction.
He became a notorious drug dealer in WNY, capturing the attention of law enforcement officials. Though warned prophetically by God through his own father to abandon his dealings or face the repercussions, young and headstrong, he turned a deaf ear to the Lord's beckoning and was subsequently caught up in a Sting Operation that resulted in 13 long years of imprisonment.
While incarcerated, Bishop Joseph Brinson Jr. committed his life to the Lord, vowing to give up his lavish and high risk lifestyle to yield to the call of ministry once released.
He kept his vow to God.
In 2005, Bishop accepted the pastoral mandate on his life; as a result, Covenant of Grace Fellowship International was birthed. Today, he is not afraid to tackle hard, relevant issues facing this generation. He preaches in- your- face messages with clarity and candor, drawing many people to Christ.
Aside from his ministerial roles, Bishop Brinson is a husband to his wife of four years, Lady Bertha Brinson. Together they parent six wonderful children and also serve as surrogate parents for many children in the church and community.
Bishop is a Kingdom-builder and will stop at nothing to win souls to Christ.
Through his ministry, lives are being snatched from the grips of sin and destruction. He is indeed "Empowering people, to empower a community, that empowers the world!"
