Gino Jennings Net Worth – $1 million

What is Gino Jennings’ net worth? Who is Gino Jennings’ wife?


Gino Jennings is an American religious leader who is prominent in the Philadelphian African-American community.

He is best known for establishing the First Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Inc. in Philadelphia.

The Origin Story

Jennings was born on February 10th, 1963, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

He is the fourth of five brothers, and the son of ‘Mother’ Jennings and ‘Bishop’ Ernest Jennings.

Jennings has been involved in his family’s religious practices since he was a child.

As a teenager, Gino was appointed as an assistant pastor of the church.

He began preaching regularly under the tutelage of his great-uncle and father.

Despite his relative youth, Jennings was third in command in the church hierarchy, behind only his great-uncle and his father.

God appeared to him

Jennings claims that God appeared to him in a vision during a three-day fast in his teenage years.

During this divine revelation, God allegedly instructed Jennings on how to found the church that would become the First Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Inc.

He said:

“He stood there before me … I saw his hands…something just comes over me when I talk about it…He showed me my work…,” he would say,…”…my calling was made known to me: Jeremiah 1 verse 5…’…Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.’, … He placed his hands in my face and made it hard as flint…”

Jennings alleged that the revelation greatly displeased his pastor, who compelled his silence on the matter for a year.


On May 21, 1984, Jennings started the First Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the basement of his family home, starting out with 15 members.

Since establishing FCOOLJC, Jennings has grown the institution from a core of 12 believers who worshiped in the basement of his parents’ Hunting Park home to a denomination that has founded satellite churches in more than 20 states across the US.

FCOOLJC now counts around 200 international sanctuaries in Asia, Africa, and Europe.

The church embraced some beliefs considered hardline and fundamentalist by the standards of many American Christians. 

Jennings has gained most of his popularity within the Christian community through his broadcasts on a few local cable networks and television stations.

In an interview with DJ Cool Clyde in 2019, Clyde pointed out that to be a genuine pastor, traditionally, you would need a doctorate degree.

Jennings responded with, “I believe the scriptures said how God would give them Pastors. After my own heart, He will do it. A Pastor is a shepherd and a true Shepard, a true leader. 1. he’ll follow the rules of God, the regulations of God, the standards of God, the laws of God. 2. he will lead the people according to the scriptures, and if you lead the people according to the scriptures, first and foremost, he will always put God in front of the people. 3. he will never get paid to preach.”

Occasionally, Jennings invites other pastors to have open public debates with him, which he broadcasts on television and on his YouTube channel.

Gino Jennings is married to Darlene Gayman Jennings, a fellow member of the church.

The happy couple married on April 15, 1990, when Gino was 27.


Gino Jennings and his wife have seven children together, four sons and three daughters.

All of their children serve in the church.

Gino Jennings said about his children:

“The mistake that many church people make is they put the pastor’s children on this pedestal. I don’t believe in such, I tell our congregation, ‘my children aren’t better than yours, my children are not great than yours, my children are not higher than yours. My children have got to walk by the same rule, the same guidelines like anyone else, and if they don’t, they will be reprimanded just like yours.”

Confrontation With Mr. Vegas

During a visit to Jamaica in 2018, Jennings was scheduled to debate a Jamaican entertainer named ‘Mr. Vegas.’

Early on in the debate, things descended into a shouting match, with Vegas not even being seated before Jennings had him escorted from the building.

The debate was supposed to revolve around Jennings’ disdain for women who wore makeup and jewelry in church, with Vegas rebutting the controversial pastor’s beliefs as outdated and misogynistic.

Israel Folau Incident

In April 2019, Israel Folau‘s four-year contract with the Waratahs and Rugby Australia was terminated over what he understands the Bible to say about homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

Rugby Australia chief executive Raelene Castle said:

”It was made clear to him that any social media posts or commentary that is in any way disrespectful to people because of their sexuality will result in disciplinary action.”

Israel’s views became a subject of controversy in April 2018, when someone asked him on Instagram what God’s “plan for homosexuals” was, and he wrote:

“Hell.. unless they repent of their sins and turn to God.”

Rugby Australia took disciplinary action against Israel after posting an image on Instagram that claimed “hell awaits” for “drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolaters.”

When asked if he would do it again, Folau said: ”I would absolutely.”

In October 2019, Gino had a visa denied by the Australian Government. In a video post, Gino described the decision to not grant him a visa as “a fight with the devil.” Rather than attend events in person, Jennings was forced to attend via satellite link. 

In addition, Jennings said he is the inspiration behind Folau.

Other famous pastors are Matt Chandler, Tony Evans, and Ron Carpenter Jr.

Pastor Gino Jennings – Net Worth 2024

So, how much is Gino Jennings worth? Jennings earned most of his wealth from working as a real estate agent and selling his book online (Holy Scriptures First Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ). Therefore, American pastor Gino Jennings has an estimated net worth of $1 million.

Gino has been flipping commercial and residential property with his wife for over 30 years.

When asked if he gets paid by the church, Gino said no, he works.

“A lot of folks ask what kind of work I do. I’ve been doing real estate for close to 30 years. Me and my wife flip commercial property, and we flip residential property. So I’ve been doing that for years. “

In 2020, Pastor Jennings was asked a question about his earnings and his beliefs that preachers and ministers should not get paid for their services. He said:

“The mistake that they make is that they think tithing is payment, like the job, like they work 8 hours a day, and it isn’t. Because tithing in the Book of Scriptures wasn’t just money, it was land; it was cattle, it was livestock, it was whatever you grew. The way the priests are doing it now, they took all the money from the church and utilizing it to their benefit. And they’re going to have members of their church in need, and they won’t lift a finger to help them whatsoever.”

In a 2019 video post, pastor Jennings said that his net worth is not $1.5 million.

“It’s not a sin to be rich because the Lord can make you rich, the Lord made Solomon rich, but it is a sin to strive to be rich, for the scripture speaking it speaks against striving to be rich,” pastor Jennings said in another sermon. He added: “Why does God don’t want us to strive to be rich — because that will become our central focus.”

I have watched a few of Jennings's Sermons. His teaching appears to be Christianity.

I was wondering , why do the women in your church cover their heads?


Sunday 1st of May 2022

None remember what John Di Baptist said “I indeed have baptized you with water: but He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. [Mark 1:8]” We are still baptizing with water not knowing how to transition to Jesus ‘Holy Ghost’ baptism. What we should be doing is to “Love one another” as Christ instructed in whatever language and alphabet.

I just found Pastor Jennings. What a blessing his preaching is. I don't agree with everything he believes but the Lord put him in my path for a reason. I've learned a lot from him so far and I'm sure I'll learn more. May Yeshua continue to bless you and your ministry sir.
