James Rodney Herring gave his life to the Lord on April 18, 1994. Shortly thereafter, he received his calling into the ministry at the East Birmingham Church of God In Christ, where he faithfully served under the leadership of Bishop Peter Wren.
During this time, the Lord gave wisdom and knowledge through the Word to Bishop Herring. In January 2000, Pastor Herring was appointed as shepherd of the church.
Since becoming Pastor, the Lord has blessed Bishop Herring the Baker Zion Family to move into a new edifice. He continues to give God all the Glory because when it seemed impossible with man, God showed himself to be all powerful.
The Glory of God continues to reign within the ministry today. Bishop Herring is the founder of Walking in God’s Will Inc. He is a well-respected man of God throughout St. Clair County community.
Bishop Herring is the loving husband to Errica Herring. They have two children: Brianna Humphrey and Isaiah Herring. Bishop is the son of Belivion Herring and James Rodney Carr. He loves his family, both the natural and spiritual, and has a heart that wants to see everyone that he knows to be blessed.
