Bishop Ronnie Thompson
Bishop Ronny Thompson became a born again believer on September 1, 1986 and accepted the Lord’s call to service. Wanting to know more about the true and living God, he prayed to the Lord to help him find a ministry which taught biblical truth. The Lord answered his prayer by leading him to Faith Deliverance Tabernacle in January of 1987. Under the tutelage of then Bishop T.C. and Prophetess A.R. Maxwell, he began to grow and flourish as a student of God’s word. Through dedicated study of God’s word and a willingness to yield and submit to it, God has raised this young man up to be a voice and mouthpiece for Him in these last days. He and his wife (Zhenee’) of 25 years have been blessed with four children Ronny, Jr., Jessica (with the Lord), Jahleel, and Rachel.
He has served in various facets of ministry throughout the years at Faith Deliverance Tabernacle and has a degree and various certificates of achievement in Biblical Studies. Pastor Ronny Thompson answered the call to service as Pastor of Faith Deliverance Tabernacle- 27th Avenue in January of 1995 and FDT-38th Avenue in January of 1997. Pastor R. Thompson was installed as Pastor of FDT headquarters in March of 2003. In the fall of December 2004, Pastor Thompson was called by God to serve as Bishop under the oversight of Apostles Dr. T.C. and A.R. Maxwell. After the Lord’s calling for the relocation of the Apostles, Bishop R. Thompson was installed as Presiding Bishop of Faith Deliverance Tabernacle where he currently serves.
Bishop Thompson has a burden to win lost souls and desires to see God’s perfect plan fulfilled in the body of Christ. As a man who loves God, Bishop Thompson’s desire is to see man (comprised of men and women), whom God has created in His image and likeness, walk in the fullness of their sonship which God wants and requires.
Prophetess Zhenee Thompson
Co-Pastor/Prophetess Zhenee’ Thompson accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior at the age of 15. The conviction for righteous living caused her to rededicate her life to Him completely on January 1, 1987. God used the invaluable tool of Sunday school to draw her to Faith Deliverance Tabernacle in August of 1987. She submitted to leadership of then Bishop T.C. and Prophetess A.R. Maxwell. The following year she was united in Holy Matrimony to then Minister Ronny Thompson, Sr., to whom she has been married for 25 years. God has blessed them with four children Ronnie, Jr., Jessica (with the Lord), Jahleel, and Rachel. She has served in various ministries throughout the years as Pastor’s Service Aide, Choir Director, Youth Leader, Outreach Worker, Women’s Ministry and Sunday School Teacher.
She answered the call to serve with her husband as Co-Pastor of Faith Deliverance Tabernacle- 27th Avenue in January of 1995 and FDT-38th Avenue in January of 1997. God has since directed her to serve as assistant to her husband at Faith Deliverance Tabernacle.
Co-Pastor Z. has a heart to walk in complete obedience to all that God says. She also wants to see God’s people do the same. She believes that we are to go out and make disciples, not only by preaching with our mouths the unadulterated truth about God’s word, but also demonstrating in action by a Holy lifestyle.
