Bishop Gregory L. Drake I

Senior Pastor

Bishop Gregory L. Drake, I is a man after God’s own heart, ready and willing to serve God’s people. His personality welcomes all and exudes God’s love. His greatest passion is to reach lost souls by winning them to Christ.
Bishop Drake attended Jarvis Christian College as well as Dallas Baptist University. He currently serves as a member of the Desoto Chamber of Commerce, he serves on the Desoto Police and Clergy (DPAC) organization, and serves as First Assistant to Emerging Churches and Fellowship Assistance of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship.
Bishop is always willing to encourage and assist other leaders by pouring into their ministries with all that God has given to him to help catapult their ministries to the next level. Bishop planted The Jubilee Church and God has definitely exceeded his expectations simply because he allowed the Lord to lead and guide him through every valley and every victory.
The Jubilee Church completed a 3.2 million dollar worship facility under Bishop Drake’s leadership in 2023 and Bishop has shared that God is going to expand our territory in a greater capacity in this next season of ministry and we will allow him to use the people of God as we watch him do it!
Although Bishop has accomplished many goals, his role as husband and father are amongst his greatest strengths. He has been married to Tonyeka L. Craft-Drake since 1992 and through this union birthed 3 beautiful children, Jhaida, Jhaila, and Gregory II.
His favorite scripture is:
Romans 8:28
“And we know all things work together for the good of them that love God, to them that are called according to his purpose.”
