Bishop and Presiding Prelate of the Holy Churches of Deliverance — The call to ministry and faithfulness to serve is the family legacy of Dr. Emerson L. Brockington, Sr. Born to the late Bishop Edward and Hattie Brockington in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, Dr. Brockington’s destiny was forged out of the desire of his family to serve God and His plans for their lives. In preparation for great ministry and the journey that lay ahead, he was united in Holy Matrimony on February 26, 1972, with the lovely Leotha M. Riddick, who co-pastors with him in ministry. God has blessed this union with one son, Emerson L. Brockington, Jr., who has also been ordained to the ministry. A daughter-in-law, Tamyra, and three grandchildren, Emerson III, Jasmine, and Cooper are blessings that God has added to his life. Family members now co-labor with Dr. Brockington in ministry as he endeavors to expand the vision and continue a legacy that expands 67 years.
