Elder Gerald Smith, Jr. is the founder of GSJ Ministries located in Charlotte, North Carolina. Elder Smith stands under the covering and anointing Apostolic/Prophetic Authority. He empowers and imparts into the lives of those who are hurting, rejected, and lost. His aim is to point people to Christ and let them know that deliverance is still available today, in many ways like in Christ’s day.

Gerald Smith Jr. is a Hartford Connecticut native. He pursued higher education by attending Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia. He is currently seeking a degree in Psychology & Biblical Counseling from Ohio Christian University.

Elder Smith has passionately served in ministry for seventeen years. He has traveled to Trinidad and Tobago as a missionary to meet the needs of those less fortunate. He has served as a counselor for Christian Broadcasting Network in Virginia Beach, Virginia. That work in ministry gave Smith the opportunity to encourage, counsel, and empower people from all walks of life. The extent of Gerald Smith’s ministerial reach expanded in 2001 when he answered the “call” to preach the gospel. That was the beginning of his elevation of service in the pastorate capacity. Although referred to as Pastor, his official title is Elder.

In 2004, Gerald Smith Jr. began his ministry as the Youth Pastor of the St. John's Full Gospel Deliverance Church in Bloomfield, Connecticut. He served in that capacity under the prolific leadership of Apostle John E. Wilson. He also served as the Chief Adjutant to Apostle John E. Wilson. Elder Smith also served as the youngest member of the Executive Board of the Church, and as Pastor Over Episcopal Ethics and Protocol of the church. Today he continues his service as an Elder in God’s Church. Elder Smith believes if you are going to serve you must serve with excellence.

wails the condition of his catastrophic circumstances from
