Meet our Pastor
I, Pastor Georges Bocage have been working in the Lords harvest for over 20 years. After spending eight years in the US Army, my last deployment was to Saudi Arabia, where the Lord opened my eyes to His truth. I was filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized in Jesus name in March 1991. Shortly thereafter I returned to Maryland and began attending the Apostolic Church of Laurel which later became Cross Creek Apostolic Church (CCAC). While there, I was blessed to hold a variety of positions that included Worship Leader, Sunday School Director, Youth Pastor, Newcomers Pastor, and Home Fellowship Leader. I learned a lot about church and working with, loving and ministering to God's people.
It's important to note that during this time the Lord placed a strong desire upon me to start a church in Bethesda, MD. I also obtained and hold my General license with the UPCI (United Pentecostal Churches International). In August 2013, l felt the call of God to move from Cross Creek Apostolic Church to Living Hope-DC under Pastor Jerry Staten. After a few short months, the Lord revealed to me that it was time to start a work in the city of Bethesda. The Church of the Living God was birthed and we had our very first service on February 4, 2014.
I'm so excited for the things God is going to do in the marvelous city of Bethesda!
