Biographical Sketch
of
Elder Percy E. Wynn, Jr.

Elder Percy E. Wynn, Jr. is a quiet man with wisdom, integrity and character. He was born August 21, 1946, in Capron, Virginia, to Percy, Sr. and Bettie Wynn. He is the eldest of eight siblings. Because of his calling to minister, his many experiences in life have enriched his ministerial environment tremendously. Such benevolence, social reforms and the rendering of community services, thus, initiated the birth of our fellowship. Being obedient, God has strengthened his resolve as a spiritual administrator liken unto an evangelist by canvassing, witnessing, and making ready a people prepared for the Lord. The effects of his vision opened the doors to the ministry named The Greater Blood Church of God in Christ, Inc., in 1978.

Because he is a man of zeal and purpose, the cry of hopelessness motivates evangelistic ministry. His continuous reply, "the goals of ministry ceases not nor will dominance handicap diversity to minister, just breathe, run down mark the spot and dig for the treasures." Here, the strategy of ministry defines the singular but rather negates the plural - the target is evangelism, the tradition of past alienation is God's instrumental platform to eliminate, he replies, "nothing can remain the same." He preaches continually that the call of ministry ordain of life becomes death in us, a sacrificial offering expressing, "let us redefine logic, reasoning, and objectivity." Herein, the gospel of God, proclaimed by him, became universal message reshaping man's preparedness to transcend beyond human elements.
