O’Garth Wentworth McKoy was born in Annotto Bay, St. Mary the only child produced by the union of Mr. & Mrs. Ezekiel Henry McKoy. He had every intention of becoming a Medical Doctor, a profession he had been dreaming of since he was a boy.  Little did he know that The Lord had a different plan for his life.  

 

After receiving the call of the Lord at the age of ten in a very profound way, he eventually surrendered his life to the Lord and was baptised in the name of The Lord Jesus Christ in 1985, and received the baptism of the Holy Ghost in 1987.  Bishop McKoy was ordained a Minister of the United Pentecostal Church in 2001 and was installed as pastor of Bethel Tabernacle U.P.C. Ocho Rios in 2006. He has been serving as the National Superintendent for the island of Jamaica since 2010.

 

He is a dynamic Preacher, Teacher, Counsellor and Motivator whose real burden lies in soul-winning and young people. He has been walking with The Lord for over thirty three years. He has been married to Maxine for over twenty one years and the union produced two children Matthew and Makayla.
