Indiana Welcomes Bishop Jerry J. Maynard and the Cathedral of Praise Choir


Bishop Jerry L. Maynard and The Cathedral of Praise Choir have been touring promoting their Top 10 Billboard Chart CD Bishop Jerry Maynard Presents the Cathedral of Praise Choir.  This week, Bishop Maynard and his award winning choir will be on the road to Indianapolis, IN and Louisville, KY with their special guests Pam Crawford, Candy West, and Michelle Prather.

The Cathedral of Praise Choir Concert in Louisville, KY is co-sponsored by WLOU Radio (2012 Stellar Award Station of The Year Medium Market) and will be held atForest Tabernacle Baptist Church, 4205 East Indian Trail at 6PM on Saturday, May 25.  On Friday, May 24, the choir will be at The Citadel of Faith COGIC, 7676 East 38th St. Indianapolis, IN at 7PM.

Bishop Maynard's return to Indianapolis is a musical homecoming celebration.   Bishop Jerry L. Maynard was ordained 50 years ago at the age of 17 in Muncie, Indiana at the church where his grandfather was the pastor and at the age of 19 the young Elder Maynard became the assistant pastor of the church.  By age 22, Maynard became pastor and within six years, under the leadership of this young visionary, they were able to build a new church and the church grew into the second largest Church of God in Christ in the state of Indiana with over three hundred fifty members.

Bishop Maynard completed graduate and postgraduate studies in Psychology and Social Sciences at Indiana University and the Doctorates Division of Cross Roads Bible College. Bishop Maynard served as Director of the Muncie Indiana Human Rights Commission from 1967-1970, a member of the Indiana and United States Civil Rights Commission from 1970-1981, and the President’s Domestic Policy Committee from 1977-1983. He is the recipient of the highest civilian award of the state of Indiana - “Sagamore of the Wabash”.

In 1986 he left Indiana and went to Atlanta, Georgia. There he started a ministry with a new congregation only six months old and grew it to over three hundred members.  While in Atlanta, Maynard found favor with Bishop G.E. Patterson who eventually asked Dr. Maynard to come to Nashville, Tennessee to preach.  He came to Nashville and was appointed pastor on September 5, 1993 to what is now Cathedral of Praise Church of God in Christ.  And now, The Cathedral of Praise Choir debut CD has yielded a Top 30 Gospel Radio Single "Just Believe" and garnered the music ministry their first award - The 2013 CHOIR OF THE YEAR from the Gospel Music City Awards in Nashville, TN.

You are invited to experience this dynamic choir and music ministry.  For more information on the upcoming concerts and future dates, visithttp://www.citadelcogic.com/ and www.bishopmaynard.com.
