Chief Apostle David D. Pittman

Chief Apostle David D. Pittman is a third generational Gospel preacher reared in the church at Saint’s Chapel Church of God in Christ located in Houston, TX which was pioneered and shepherded by his grandfather Pastor Bengamin E. Boulding, Sr. Apostle Pittman’s mother, Lay Pastor Rose M. Nelms, spoke prophetically into Apostle Pittman’s life when he was a child declaring and decreeing his ultimate call to ministry. Apostle Pittman received salvation in Jesus Christ in June 1984 and from that point on he has been a faithful steward of God’s calling on his life. In May 1985 he was called into ministry under the leadership of Elder Charles D. Hill at the Fairbanks Church of God in Christ and served as an associate Minister from May 1986 to April 1990. It was during this time that Apostle Pittman met his help meet and co-laborer in the gospel, Shelia Joy Josey. The two were united in matrimony on January 2, 1987. Together, they nurture and admonish three children: Charles, Davinia and David, and are the loving grandparents of three: Daviniece, Michayla and Ariel.

On May 18, 1997 Apostle Pittman founded The Rock Church of God in Christ. It was during this period that the Holy Spirit began to direct Apostle Pittman in the direction of divine apostolic atmosphere as the Lord began to send men of God who operated in the “Five Fold Ministry” realm and administration. Therefore, on March 14, 1998, Apostle Pittman founded The Rock Ministries International which was divinely authored by the Holy Spirit. Apostle Pittman attends Texas Southern University and attended the College of Biblical Studies Houston. Never one to remain idle, Apostle Pittman has dedicated himself to the upward mobility of people of God. He is often called upon to preach to congregations regarding God’s divine plan for blessing in the ministry of sowing and reaping. His energetic preaching style and infusions of humor endear him to listeners in any setting.

People’s lives are instantly changes as God uses him to minister to those whose hearts are open to God’s divine plan.
