Pastor Jerome Elliott is a well-respected and highly anointed man of God. He has been married to Co-pastor Cassandra Elliott for 36 years. This Holy Ghost power couple has co-founded a unique and dynamic ministry of reconciliation ministering to the whole man and designed to bridge the gap between man and God, one soul at a time.
In 1995 while serving as a minister at his local church, Bishop Elliott noticed that there was something missing. He was prayerful and the Lord began to deal with him. The Lord showed him that Men who love God and loved their family were the missing element. At that time God gave Bishop a burning desire to see Men take their rightful place in the home and the church. The vision began with a 100 African American Men Outreach Service, with the Theme Bridging the Gap between Man and God one Soul at a time. This Service was based on the scripture Ezekiel 22:30 –Which states - And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. The service brought men of all backgrounds, races, and religions together for the purpose of worshiping God. It was a catalyst for change in the lives of many; broken relationships were mended, marriages and family were reunited, men were saved and restored to right fellowship with God. This service became a true ministry of reconciliation. So, it was only fitting that in Dec. 2000 when God called Bishop Elliott into a ministry of his own that Bridging the Gap would be its name; After all God had indeed anointed and blessed the outreach services. Bishop Elliott continues to reach out to men of all backgrounds, races, and religions to help bring them to God one soul at a time.
