Greater Bethel Cathedral Leadership
Greater Bethel Cathedral is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.
Bishop Aaron M. Martin II
Bishop Aaron M. Martin, II was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Deacon and Mother Aaron Martin. At an early age, Bishop Martin became active in his local church. The assembly had not had a consistent musician for several years and they were praying that God would send one. Little did they know that God was raising up a musician within their midst. It was at the age of seven that Dr. Martin was considered a childhood prodigy and became the church musician. Bishop Martin was baptized in Jesus name at an early age and received the Holy Ghost during his teenage years. At age 19, he heard the call to the ministry to which he told the Lord, "Yes".
Upon completion of high school, he went to college and received his degree in Performing Arts Music from the City University of New York. He continued his education and later completed his Doctorate Degree at the North Carolina School of Theology. Bishop Martin’s ministry afforded him the privilege to spend much time traveling extensively in both his music and preaching ministries. God opened many doors and as a result, Bishop Martin was blessed to minister in such countries as India, Japan, Brazil, Spain, Haiti, Nigeria and twice to Liberia. He continued to record and was blessed to accompany many renowned gospel artists.
In college Bishop Aaron Martin met and married Sister Andrea (Baskerville) Martin in 1975. They are the proud parents of two sons: Aaron III and Antwon (Yvette). They are blessed to have two granddaughters; Hannah Rose and Faith Abigail. In 1976, Bishop Martin became an Ordained Elder. During this time, he became a highly sought after minister of the gospel nationally and internationally due to his powerful messages of deliverance, healing and salvation. Shortly after his ordination, Bishop Martin resumed traveling as an Evangelist and later became a National Evangelist in the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World. Thousands have been saved, set free and delivered as a result of His ministry.
As pastor of the Greater Bethel Cathedral in Los Angeles, California he services the masses in the heart of the city. He’s been instrumental in providing services for thousands focusing on the whole man through several community outreach events including food and clothing giveaways, job placement, free fitness and health training and mentorship opportunities to name a few.
Bishop Martin is a powerful preacher, teacher, businessman and musician who loves seeing lives transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit. Bishop Aaron M. Martin, II is a chosen vessel and an instrument of God who has been charged with the responsibility to expand and reach the nations and the world.
