Apostle Raymond Faison's Bio

Born April 24, 1950, to the late Raymond and Carletha Faison in Goldsboro, North Carolina, 
Apostle Faison attended the Church of God and True Holiness all of his childhood years under 
the leadership of Bishop John Kennon.  He attended and graduated from Goldsboro High School 
and soon after relocated to Cleveland, Ohio.  He later moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia where 
he was baptized and received the Holy Ghost in 1968 and faithfully served under the leadership 
of Elder Carl Pendleton.
 
In June of 1969, Apostle Faison married the love of his life; his one and only wife, Edith Pendleton Faison.  
To this union six children were born; Raymond III, Stephanie, Claudette, Lisa, Darrel and Jonathan.  
He also has 3 grandchildren; Chelcie, Kirk and Caitlyn.  His family supports and works close by 
him in the church.
 
Apostle Faison served as the Youth President for both the True Holiness Organization 
and the A.A.C.C.J. until he reached the required retired age restriction.  He has served 
as the head devotion leader, church pianist, choir director, Sunday School Superintendent 
and as a Deacon. Apostle Faison attended the Fredericksburg Secretary School, the 
Fredericksburg Bible Institute and T.H.A.S. where he received his DD degree; he also 
received a continuous education certificate.   Apostle Faison was featured in the largest 
circulated newspaper in Fredericksburg and surrounding areas and was given a Certificate 
of Humanity from a National Editor in Washington, DC for his contribution to mankind and 
the society.  He started a boys and girls summer camp for the True Holiness Youth from the 
ages of 10 - 18 in an effort to teach them about life; both spiritually and naturally.  
Apostle Faison always followed the motto often used by our Chief Apostle A.E. Dixon, 
"A Holy Life is the Best Life".  This is something he continues to instill in the church today.
 
As a Deacon, Apostle Faison was sent to Fair Bluff, North Carolina to assist the church in 
staying established after the death of their Pastor.  Apostle Faison later acknowledged the 
call of God on his life to become a Minister.  He was later installed as the Pastor of the 
church in North Carolina and also in Fredericksburg, VA.  To this day, he and his wife 
continue to travel between the two churches on a monthly basis.  
.
Apostle Faison served faithfully through the ranks as a Brother, a Deacon, a Minister, 
an Elder and a Bishop in the Churches of God and True Holiness.  In June 2009, he was 
consecrated and ordained as an Apostle.  In June 2010, he was elected to serve as 
2nd Vice Prelate over The Churches of God and True Holiness Organization and in July 
of 2010, he was appointed to the Board of the Alliance of Apostolic Churches of Jesus Christ 
(AACCJ), an apostolic  affiliation of which our Chief Apostle A.E. Dixon, Sr. 
is one of the founding members.  
 
Apostle Faison continues to faithfully serve and preach the true Word of God.  He is loved 
by his church family members from the youngest to the oldest.  Apostle Faison always makes 
time for his church members and goes above the call of duty.  He is a faithful follower of Christ 
and a true leader to the churches that God has entrusted to him.
