We would not be here today without the people who blazed the trail before us. These National Leaders of the Church of God Movement were the first African Americans to lead in their respective fields, in their generation, in leadership, ministry, and service. While this list is not exhaustive, we honor all those who had gone before and were firsts in their places of service. Today and every day we will continue to celebrate their accomplishments because we would not be where we are today without them. These individuals made space for others who follow after them and continue to carry the torch and blaze trails for tomorrow's leaders.
