Its annual corporate meeting, “The Gathering,” took place in Jacksonville, Florida at the Prime Osborn Convention Center.

GUF, which was born out of Bishop Ellis’s split from Bishop Paul Morton’s “Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship” following Bishop Joseph Walker III’s appointment as successor, is rapidly expanding.
