The LORD God sent John E. Maddox, a God fearing and dedicated man, to be the shepherd of Gethsemane Baptist Church in Mitchellville, Maryland on October 11, 1981. Dr. Maddox's interest in humanity is manifested in his deep concern for building God's Kingdom. Pastor Maddox seeks to bring unity, love and understanding between members of Gethsemane Baptist Church and its community. Pastor Maddox joyfully continues as a man of God on a mission for God. His love for God’s people and his church at Gethsemane magnifies his love for the Lord. From the tutelage of Reverend Maddox are his numerous sons and daughters-in-Christ as bishops, pastors, evangelists, ministers, Bible teachers and Bible learners. Pastor Maddox’s truth teaching of God’s Word is his appointed and accepted charge.
