Meet the Founder and Pastor

Bishops David & Belinda Hinkley, Founder

Bishop Belinda was ordained in 1988 through Blue Ridge Chapel in Rocky Mount, VA, at The School of the Prophets by Pastor Joseph Crandel (apostle) and Pastor David Hundley. 
David and Belinda have been married for over 34 years, pastoring in the city of Salem, VA for over fourteen years.
In Salem, the School of the Holy Spirit was an outreach of G.A.C.I. and was blessed with students from different denominational backgrounds.  This ministry had forty-five graduates from the one-year and two-year programs; and from these, seven were ordained as ministers.  They are now serving as pastors and evangelists in different states.
In 2008, the Hinkleys relocated to Dublin, VA through strong leading of the Holy Spirit.  The Lord has given them a heart for the New River Valley churches.  It’s a cry for reformation, healing, and awakening for the body of Christ to unite as one in prayer and in love in order to reach this area for Christ.

“We are here to stay, stand, pray, and unite with people of like faith to see marriages restored, children set free, and lives transformed through the gospel.”


 Rev. Bethany Johnston, Pastor
