Our History

The Church of God in Christ in Kentucky began in the early 19th century after the 1906 Azusa Street revival in Los Angeles, California. It was during these early years that churches were preached out in many of the southern states which included Kentucky. Overseers were appointed to various states on a temporary basis to manage the newly sanctified churches/congregations.

The churches in Kentucky were organized in the 1920s by Overseer R. R. Booker. Overseer Booker was also appointed as Overseer of Missouri and Indiana. In the mid-1920s, there were about 12 churches in Kentucky under his administration.

Kentucky First Jurisdiction currently has thirty (30) churches within six (6) Districts in the state of Kentucky.
