Bishop Kevin Dobbs

Diocesan of NYS PAofW

Bishop Kevin Dobbs answered the call of God to serve as the founder and pastor of the Christ Redemption Tabernacle Church in Niagara Falls, New York in September 1999, after serving in various capacities at Emmanuel Temple Apostolic Church for 23 years. He was the faithful Assistant Pastor at Emmanuel Temple under the leadership of District Elder William Robinson and founded by his father in the gospel, the late Bishop William Crossley. Bishop Dobbs was ordained in October 2000, by Diocesan Bishop Charles E. Davis at the New York State & Canada Council. Christ Redemption Tabernacle Church is affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World Inc. of the apostolic faith.


With humble beginnings, Bishop Dobbs along with his wife the Late First Lady Mary Ann Dobbs and their four children Nicole, Nicholas, Kevanne, and Kary followed the faithful call to ministry with sacrifice and servitude by hosting services in the dining room of their home. Through the in-depth and sound teaching of home bible studies passionately conducted by Bishop Dobbs, more and more souls continued to be added daily to the body of Christ. God

began to bless tremendously as the Dobbs home could no longer hold the congregation...
