Greater Holy Temple Christian Academy

Greater Holy Temple Christian Academy was the dream of the late Elder Joseph Robert DeShazer, Jr., who was the brother of our Founder and Executive Director, Pastor James E. DeShazer.
Elder Joseph R. DeShazer was the Pastor and Founder of Greater Holy Temple Church of God in Christ, and the First Administrative Assistant and President of the State Evangelist Department of the 3rd Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of Church of God in Christ.
He was a graduate of Marquette University and Rhema Bible Institute, which demonstrates that education was important for his own success.
Greater Holy Temple is dedicated to serving a diverse population and providing its students with a supportive learning environment to inspire all students to strive for excellence in pursuing a strong academic and Christian environment, in order to succeed in and contribute to the community.
