Father, Faith Walker, and Fearless Leader are words used to describe Bishop Sherman A. Gordon the

founding and Senior Pastor at Family of Faith Christian Center (F.O.F.C.C.) located at 345 E. Carson Street,

inception, it has grown by leaps and bounds.


This young, powerful Pastor, Preacher, Teacher, and Leader is able to build bridges and reach across

generations, gender, race, culture, and ethnicity that changes rebuilds, and restores lives. Parents and youth

in search of partnerships instead of persecution, guidance instead of guilt, and opportunity instead of

opposition often join after just one visit. According to Pastor Gordon, people frequent Family of Faith Christian

Center in multitudes because they “feel the warmth and love upon entering the church doors”. The church

stresses “kinship over membership”. Pastor Gordon maintains that members are not joining the

church - they are joining the family.
