Pastor Rusty Woolum is a great man of God, a devoted husband and father, and an Ordained Bishop within the Church of God, Cleveland Assembly. He and his wife Kathy have three beautiful children; Nathaniel, Sarah, and Hannah. Since 2004, Rusty has been the minister of music and choir director at the Newport Keturah Street Church of God. In 2009 Rusty became Youth Pastor at the NCOG, and in 2010 Pastor Rusty and his wife Kathy started feeling the call to start pastoring their own congregation. The door opened to Pastor their home church where Rusty has spent 23 years as a member and worker, and Kathy has spent over 40 years as a member and worker. In January 2011, Pastor Rusty and his family were officially voted in as pastor for the Newport Church of God. Rusty and his family are committed to seeing the plan and vision that God has for His church to come to pass.
We are honored to have Pastor Rusty and his family to lead the flock here at the Newport Keturah Street Church of God.
