Presiding Bishop Alphonzo D. Brooks, Founder of Galilee WOTCC



The Way of the Cross Church of Christ was founded in Washington, DC by the late Bishop Henry Chauncey Brooks in 1927. Out of this ministry several ministries have been birthed.  In the year of 1988 the Galilee Way of the Cross Church of Christ was established by our founder Bishop Alphonzo D. Brooks. 

Bishop Brooks traveled to Atlanta many Sundays after his Sunday morning services in Washington, DC.  The church was growing and souls were being blessed.  Later, Bishop Brooks commissioned Bishop Walter Thompson, senior elder at the Way of the Cross Church in Washington, DC, to continue the work in Atlanta.  He labored faithfully for 4 years at Galilee.  In 1996 the Lord called Bishop Carlos and Missionary Lisa Simon into the vineyard as laborers to build upon the foundation originally laid by Jesus Christ.  Bishop and First Lady have purposed their hearts to follow the call of God, by leading others to worship Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth. God continues to honor their obedience and reaffirm their godly purpose.  Galilee is currently settled on a beautiful piece of property in College Park, GA
