Bishop Mitchell



Bishop Llewelyn Mitchell Sr.



Pastor Llewelyn Mitchell was born in the parish of St. Elizabeth, in the Island of Jamaica, WI to Gladys Johnson and Vivian Mitchell. He accepted the Lord in 1963 and was later filled with Holy Ghost.


He attended the Shiloh Apostolic Church, where he worshipped for seven years under the leadership of Elder Randolph Barrett and later became a Deacon.

He started working as a farmer for himself at a tender age. However, he later attended trade school in Ocho Rios where he specialized in welding.


In 1972 after migrating to Toronto, Canada, Deacon Mitchell was consistent in attaining success that he attended the School of Technical Trade where he furthered his skills in welding. Upon completing his studies, he graduated and got his first job at the Canadian Hansen and Van Winkler Co. as a first class welder.


He later married the love of his life, Sis Muriel O’rero in Toronto, Canada in 1972. It was then that he met the late Bishop Redway who was the giveaway father of his bride, Sis Muriel Mitchell. Sis Mitchell and Bishop Redway worshiped at the same Assembly in New York City, subsequently, she returned to New York after her wedding.


A few years later Deacon Mitchell migrated to the United States and joined his wife. He also became a member of the same Apostolic Church in New York City where he continued for ten years.

Bishop & First Lady Mitchell


Following the leading of the Holy Spirit, Deacon Mitchell decided to take up fellowship with the True Witness Church in Paterson, New Jersey under the leadership of the late Bishop Redway. Due to Deacon Mitchell’s faithfulness, grace and humility he promoted to the position of an Elder in 1985


In 1995 Elder Mitchell was ordained as the Assistant Pastor of the True Witness Church. Due to the declining illness of Bishop Redway, Elder Mitchell was elevated to the position of Pastor in October 2001. After the passing of the late Bishop Redway, Pastor Mitchell assumed full pastoral responsibility of the True Witness Church of Jesus Christ, Inc. However, The Lord was not through with him yet, in August 2009, He was ordained to the office of Bishop.

The Lord strengthens him, and blesses him in this ministry, and we, “Being confident of this very thing, that He who hath began a good work in him would perform it until the day of Jesus Christ (~Phil 1:6)” know that the Lord will continue to do so.

"So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him."
~1 Kings 19:19
