Gino Jennings – Net Worth, Biography, Scandal, Church, Wife

Gino Jennings is an American Oneness Pentecostal pastor, who is best known as being the founder and general overseer of the First Church of our Lord Jesus Christ in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Founded in 1919 by the late Bishop Sherrod C. Johnson, the First Church of our Lord Jesus Christ in Philadelphia (FCOOLJC) grew into a network of church locations, stemming from New England to Florida and as far west as California.


Born on February 10, 1963, Gino was the 4th of 8 siblings. His father was Bishop Ernest Jennings, a ministerial clergy leader at his father’s uncle’s church in Philadelphia.

In 1975, Gino was appointed as an assistant pastor of the church. As a teenager, Jennings began preaching regularly under the tutelage of his father.

He even began evangelizing at revivals and crusades at other churches around the city of Philadelphia with his father and mother.

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

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

In addition, Gino claims to have seen the Lord.

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…”

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.

In the two decades 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 which has founded over fifteen satellite churches in the continental U.S.

Moreover, FCOOLJC counts nearly 200 international sanctuaries in Asia, Africa, and Europe. Also, his churches have been dedicated to community services efforts and philanthropy.

Gino rejects the Biblical presentation of God and collapses all distinctions between the persons of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, leaving Jesus praying to Himself in the Garden and sending “another Comforter” who is none other than Himself!

Wife & Children

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.

They have 7 children together, four sons and three daughters.


He published a book, entitled – ”Holy Scriptures First Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ with Pastor Gino Jennings.”

This book contains the 66 books with the book of Jasher, Samuel and the Apocrypha (means ‘hidden things’ in Greek) and it also gives the knowledge of how the Confederacy was formed.


Many people of other churches and denominations have criticized Gino and the First Church of our Lord Jesus Christ for some of their stricter views and beliefs, like – the rejection of women in church clergy based on 1st Timothy 2:12.

Many Christians have accused them of being “religiously misogynistic,” and speaking in tongues as a required sign of evidence of being baptized with the Holy Spirit.

In 2018, Gino said:

“You so-called Christian looking hoes, jumping in some church, flopping your ankle chains around.”

Gino later added:

”On the choir, breasts hanging out, lips all red, nails painted red, purple, blue, green, long like bird claws, all this fake hair, breasts implant, toenails painted with little fake diamonds in it, your toes ain’t richer. You’re nothing but a prostitute.”

Carla Dunbar, a widely popular pastor in the Jamaican landscape and minister of religion at Carla Dunbar Ministries, said Jennings’ comments are erroneous.

She said:

“The statements are debilitating and degrading and erroneous, and he has no scriptural basis for the claims he is making. Women have been used biblical from a long time.”

Carla Dunbar continued:

“So, if he is a bible-reading pastor, he would not speak of women in leadership in the derogatory way in which he has spoken.”

He is an Aquarius. The Aquarius-born people are intelligent and always look for intellectual stimulation. They are equally good at thinking about practical and abstract things.


Moreover, the Aquarius-born people should be careful about their nervous systems, because they are prone to insomnia and restlessness.

Due to their desire for freedom, the Aquarius-born people will always strive to ensure freedom of movement and speech.

Gino was born in the Year of the Rabbit. People born in the Year of the Rabbit typically have tender and soft personality traits. Rabbits will not be irritated easily, and they also avoid quarrels as much as possible. Also, they maintain a pleasant relationship with people around and keep a modest attitude.

Rabbits usually do not submit to dreary life, however, they create romance.

People born in the Year of the Rabbit are amorous and not determined, soft in appearance and stubborn inside. Additionally, they lack meditative abilities and frequently sink money into ideas which may cause failures in their career.

  1. Matthew 28v19 says to go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you but you always say we must be baptized in Jesus name only

    • You absolutely stated it correctly “baptizing them in the name of the father…? What is His name? His name is JESUS

  2. One God manifested three ways. There is only one God….one Jesus. Paul said the true gospel is only hid to them that are lost. Pastor Gino Jennings is right.

  3. Hi I want to know can i talk to him about Christianity he like of knowledge Christianity mean son of God but man made it out of religion I want to talk to him more in person on phone however
    Please 702 917-6664 please call me

  4. How do you Paster Gino Jennings feel about Dr. Ray Hagins saying that Jesus was never alive and the Bible is a made up book of lie’s.


    • I was baptized in the name of the Father, the son, and the Holy Ghost when I was younger. I believe that they are one. The Bible says that Jesus was a manifestation of His word on earth. In that manner I believe they are one. Father- Yahweh and Jesus the son.(who died for our sins and God has given dominion/power to judge us for our sins at the End. The Holy Spirit is described as the power of God. Noone shall come to the Father except through Jesus Christ. Therefore I believe he is God’s buffering level to do God’s will as well with God’s powers bestowed upon him due to his sacrifice. He is truly Worthy! I acknowledge them all the Trinity. With giving praises to Jesus and God equally. For I believe without the Father, there could be no us (he created Adam and Eve) , and no Savior (he begat Jesus by Mary). God is responsible for all of us ever being!!

      • I correct myself..If Jesus was a manifestation of God’s Word. His word has always been with him. And only manifested on earth with Jesus’s birth. Can you separate your word’s from yourself? So I guess in a way they are one!

        • I just want to comment on how much I enjoy Pastor Gino Jennings teachings/ministry. I live in Texas and have not found a good church home in over 20 years here moving from another state. I wish we had a church here that I could attend in the Dallas area. The last church I went to years ago. I was there with my Ex husband. And he and a lady in the Choir had a dead gaze most of the church service. I proded him to leave early before they released service due to this. When we got ready to leave. One of the other women from the Choir ran to door to look at us as we drove off with my young son. I felt really bad about these actions and didn’t want to return. But my husband talked me into going back. The next time the Lady in the Choir looked like she was going to come over and hug my husband. I did not go back again before I lose my religion inside the church. I can’t believe how hard up some women in church can act here in this metroplex. My husband did go back again but without me. We are of course divorced now. Seeking a good church home. Until then I will continue to watch and cherish you services online! I have stopped watching TDJakes and Creflo because they preach against Mammon but don’t practice what they preach!

  6. Dear Pastor Jennings I love your videos soooooo much because you stick to all of God’s teachings, and it’s feels so good to let people know that God said it….and we can turn to it in the Bible… Especially the women in our choir dress like hookers. My daughter in-law say give them time, I feel 3+yrs. And still coming to church dressed like that is very embarrasing. At 44yrs old can’t read and all her 3 kids ages 16 to 30yrs old don’t know their ABC’s sad just cracking up their checks. But God see and knows everything. Love you Pastor Jennings. Debbie Cooper💖💖💖💋💯💯💯🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  7. Linda Rika YouTube testimony three preachers out of five million people eligible for heaven on the day that she saw the Lord Jesus The Christ. Please pray and ask God if it is true? My first rapture dream only 123 people out of the entire USA go to heaven. Second dream but as it was in the days of Noah… Matthew 22:11-13 clothing keeps a man from heaven. Take heed that no man deceive you.

  8. Peace and Blessings.
    For all of Christs children who praise Pastor Jennings for gis undeestanding of the word must be mindful of who they’re praising in the mighty name of Jesus. For Gods children who have been chosen knows to answer at the appointed time. In goodness and in truth. Gods appointed time has come, and it is my pleasure to say it is his dauggter who has recieved him. I will not argue or debate we are in a new. As it is written from a mans rib woman is created and through woman man comes. Hence we’re in a new Pasror Jennings must ask for forgiveness when it comes to all of his harsh words.For it is a woman who also knows the truth that Pastor Jennings speak, and it is onky through a woman Will Christ rerurn. I am Mother of all Mothers in goodness and in truth. I am Gemini ( Twin ) lineage of the Almighty Alpha and Omega. I am all that I am, and because our God knows all things.

  9. I am not aginst the truth The pastor speaks the same truth I speak. I understand all he speaks this is why As he debates, he is man. I I don’t debate with my brethren and we speak the sane. My truth is my eyes have always been open. I enjoy learning and growing, and the pastor is preachibg truth in a very very old manner. It is from life I have grown, and our Priesthood is Royal. We the children who are Spirit first understand we’re not to speak against the word in Jesus name, no matter who is preachibg or teaching. We correct those whom we lluv. I Speak from the root. He and I would be overjoyed in word. Hence INI allowing him to see truth. I’m pleased to hear him. #HolySpirit

  10. I always get a kick out of people defending women preachers. They never use bible, just their opinion!
    1 Timothy 2:12

    “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

    King James Version (KJV)

    and since every word will be established in the mouth of two or three witnesses;
    1 Corinthians 14:35

    “And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.”

    King James Version (KJV)
