Eld. Darryl D. Mayo
Pastor Mayo made a commitment to serve the Lord and was baptized and filled with God’s Holy Spirit at a young age and attended church with his family every Sunday. As a child, he attended 21st Street Temple COGIC with his family. Later the family transitioned to Robbins Memorial COGIC where he was a faithful member, which is pastored by Superintendent Emmanuel Collins. Pastor Mayo taught YPWW at Robbins Memorial for many years and was part of the musician drummer staff. He is a competitive athlete in all sports.
Pastor Mayo is married to the love of his life, Karen and has two daughters Savaughna and Darrlynn. In 1989, Pastor Mayo encouraged his wife to transition their church fellowship to assist his father-in-law at the GTLT church. Within a five year period was appointed deacon and was called to minister God’s Word on numerous occasions. In the late 1990’s was appointed as the GTLT Church Sunshine Band President which historically has only been held by women. Because of his leadership the GTLT youth won the first, second and third place trophies, consecutively, for four years.
After the transitioning of the Late First Lady Carrie Knight (2009) and the Late Henry L Knight (2010) various interim elders were assigned and departed. Pastor Mayo and his wife began to pray to God asking that His will be done in the ministry. It was just a matter of time that God confirmed in each of their spirits that they were going to lead the ministry and take the ministry to the next level. Pastor Mayo confirmed and obeyed God’s call to lead the GTLT ministry in addition to his professional career in medicine. He completed the requirements of the Church of God In Christ Ordination process. He feels humbled that the baton has transitioned into his hands, from one of the best Bible teachers and mentors in the gospel (the Honorable Late Pastor Henry L. Knight). Pastor Mayo says,“We all know that all things work together for good to them that love the Lord and who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 “We believe in God, all things are possible.” Mark 9:23
