About Our Founder

For the last forty-eight years, Bishop Roosevelt Dunn has become known both in the local community as well as throughout the state of Colorado as a man of integrity, wisdom, and a great vision. Born October 17, 1934 in Hamburg, Arkansas, he later relocated to Los Angeles, California. In 1965, he was saved under the leadership of Pastor A.T. Mayberry. According to Bishop Dunn, “Life really began when I got saved.” The outcome of this new life has unfolded over the years into an exemplary life of faith and dependency on God to provide in the midst of life’s circumstances. He served in the ministry in Los Angeles as district secretary, Sunday school teacher, Young People Willing Workers president and teacher. He was ordained in 1969 under the late Bishop Samuel Crouch.   In 1970, Bishop Dunn was given “Israelite” for the name of the church, which would eventually become the foundation of an outreach ministry that would birth out other ministries and impact many lives. After much prayer, Bishop Dunn moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1971 with his wife and then seven children. He served faithfully for one year under Pastor Justus Morgan at the Morgan Memorial Church of God in Christ. On February 15, 1972, the Israelite Church of God in Christ was established. As the ministry has grown, several programs have been implemented as part of the total outreach ministry: Decision Time Enterprises, Paradise Foundation and a 171-unit apartment complex was used to provide low-income housing to the Colorado Springs community just to name a few. about_bishop_leftphoto Bishop Dunn is known as a praying man and a dynamic teacher. His ministry has reached many parts of Europe including Germany and Italy. Out of the Israelite ministry, more than twelve churches have emerged. He has been instrumental in helping other churches build both financially and through spiritual encouragement. Nevertheless, Bishop Dunn gives credit for the efforts to the faithful church members who have stood by and assisted him. While he did not begin as Bishop, the Lord has elevated him over the years. Beginning as Pastor, then, Superintendent of the Southern District, State AIM Chairman and, now, the Jurisdiction of Colorado Prelate. His most recent accomplishment through the help of the Lord was to see the outright purchase of a Jurisdictional Temple with no debt. Truly, God is good! He freely and generously gives both his time and resources to help those in need. Bishop Dunn is well known for saying “You have a miracle in your mouth.” He firmly believes that, “We are blessed to be a blessing,” and that “You cannot beat God Giving.” Bishop Dunn has been married to his lovely wife, Mother Emma Dunn for sixty-two years. To this union are seven sons and three daughters. On Friday, August 28, 2020, Bishop Roosevelt Dunn, made his transition from this earthly labor to his heavenly reward.  He is greatly missed by the Dunn Family, the Israelite Church of God in Christ and the Ecclesiastical Colorado Jurisdiction of the Church of God in Christ. Rest In Him.
