Apostle Bradford Berry, Sr., is a native of Philadelphia. PA. He owes his early development to his parents, who are both deceased. His family was led to the Refuge Church of Christ of the Apostolic Faith where Apostle Henry D. Jones was the pastor. Apostle Jones became a mentor and teacher and soon, Berry was being utilized in many aspects of the churchs ministry.
As a minister, Apostle Jones sent Minister Berry to Atlantic City, N. J., to continue the work he had started. Eventually, the young minister was ordained as an elder. After the death of Apostle Jones, Elder Berry was appointed pastor of The Refuge Church of Christ in Pleasantville, N.J., by Chief Apostle W. L. Bonner.
The Lord has led Bishop Berry to be a visionary and has placed a global calling on his life. An anointed man of God, Bishop Berry has worked faithfully in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and is Diocesan Bishop of West Africa. Along with other pastors, he has held joint services called True Love Fellowship, that has grown into the annual Lift Him Up Fellowship Conference.
