Bishop Darrius Key
Bishop Darrius Key is a native of Gary, Indiana, son of Johnnie and Willie Meta Key and the second oldest of five brothers. From an early age he knew God’s hand was on his life as he sought for a deeper understanding of his faith.
As a young adult he asked God to show him his purpose and God led him to Atlanta, Georgia, the foundation of his destiny. He became a member of Lynwood Park United Church of God in Christ, where he accepted his call as a Deacon and later as an Elder, preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In 2004, Bishop Key established Loganville United Church of God In Christ in Loganville, Georgia. Through Bishop Key’s leadership and teaching, the church grew and flourished at an incredible rate and he was elevated to the office of Superintendent by Bishop Dewey F. Long. As Superintendent of his appointed jurisdiction, Bishop Key was successful to cultivate fellowship between new and existing ministries in Georgia and abroad.
In 2006, Bishop Key followed the voice of the Lord and modified the name of the church to New Beginnings Fellowship Assembly International, broadening the reach of the church to global proportion. In 2008, Bishop Key was elected Presiding Bishop of the New Beginnings Fellowship Assembly International, a consortium of ten churches based in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee. Later that year, he was consecrated as Chief Apostle and Presiding Prelate.
In 2016, the Lord inspired Bishop Key to establish a new ministry, Cathedral of Grace Church founded in Grayson, Georgia, now based in Decatur, Georgia. This thriving ministry is host of Sunday Mid-Day Services at 12:30 PM and “Straight Talk, Straight Answers” Online Bible Study at 7 PM on Wednesdays.
