Just as man was made in the image of God, so was “New Psalmist Baptist Church”. It began as a vision from God in early December of 1998 as He began to reveal His plan to Dr. Hall. With nothing to stand on but a vision and faith, Bishop Hall said yes to God.
As he began to ask God for direction, the vision became clearer. In the later part of December of 1998, he met with a group of four individuals to share the vision of God wanting a place where He can be worshiped in Spirit and in Truth, by all nations of people.
As he began to “Write the Vision” with the scripture, Matthew 28:19-20 in his heart, he was determined to establish a diverse ministry with God and for God’s people. After the initial meeting, he realized the urgency of the calling for this ministry and immediately began to step out on the Word of God. Through much fasting and prayer, God began to reveal to him the true meaning of Word, Worship, and Witness on which the “New Psalmist Baptist Church” would be established. The first worship service was held on February 21, 1999, at Jefferson Junior High, which was the first of its temporary homes. “Greater New Psalmist Baptist Church”, renamed four years ago to embrace where God was taking the ministry, now resides in its own facilities with its revolutionary vision to “Empower, Improve, and Impact the Lives of Others through Discipleship and Demonstration”.
As the Pastor of Greater New Psalmist Baptist Church, Dr. Hall is a man of uncompromising integrity and gifting. He has labored in ministry for 30 years. With the confidence of who he is in God and the calling that is on his life, he is in fact, one of the greatest preachers anyone has ever encountered in Toledo, Ohio as well as internationally. He has a vision for the 21st Century as a loyal and dedicated servant of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
