Pastor Jerome A. Wilkins
Pastor Wilkins believes that Family Fellowship International Christian Church (FFICC) is a very important place where people can come and hear the life-saving word of God. A place where people can come and be fed both spiritually and physically, by God's Word, with their family as they come together in this very special place. As pastor and under shepherd of FFICC, Pastor Wilkins is devoted to fostering the joy that is free to all people through a risen and living Savior, Jesus Christ.
FFICC exists to be a light to all those who seek true joy, love, peace, and hope -- as well as to actively go out into the world to proclaim Christ’s crucifixion to those who do not know Jesus. Under Pastor Wilkins' Christ-centered leadership, it is our ministry to feed all the sheep who come to FFICC, reach every lost sheep and gather them all into the fold of our Heavenly Father. This we will do until Christ comes again! Pastor Wilkins believes in Bringing Strength and Unity to the Family.
