Bishop Otis G. Rankin

Co-founder/Senior Pastor of First United Gospel Assembly, Gulfport, Mississippi. Bishop Rankin not only serves as Pastor of a local church but he is also called of God to serve other Pastors and church leaders. Under his apostolic leadership several pastors have been restored and sent out to re-establish their churches as designed by God. He has impacted the lives of leaders and lay persons as he traveled the U.S. and abroad. Each year, since 1997, he and his wife host Leadership Conference from which the Leading With A Cause ministry was birthed in 2005. Leaders locally and across the country meet in January of each year for engagement, encouragement, development and fellowship. He is author of Beyond the Anointing and No One Dies Here. His vision is to leave a legacy of godly wisdom for the next generation of leaders, taking them Beyond the Anointing and within the veil with the confidence to know that No One Dies Here. He can be seen on Local Television Cable One channel 19 on Mondays at 6:00pm.

Lady Debra Rankin, Staff Liasion

Co-founder/Elect Lady of First United Gospel Assembly, Gulfport, Mississippi. Because of her ministering alongside her husband in the 1980's, she became a groundbreaker for other women seeking their place in ministry. Lady Rankin is founder of Women of Integrity Ministries, an arm of training for the churched as well as the un-churched women of our city and beyond. She is co-author, with Bishop Rankin, of the book No One Dies Here. Her vision is to continue to be a mentor to future Pastors' wives and women of God in ministry. She and her husband are proud parents of three, Ungela, Greg, Sr., and Shelly. And they are equally as proud to be both grandparents and great grandparents
