 About the Pastor 

Bobby E. Hogan Jr. was born on February 9, 1974 to the union of Mr. Bobby E. Hogan Sr. & Dorothy J. Hogan. Bobby Jr. & his brother, Jonathan grew up in the West Birmingham area. Pastor Hogan is a 1992 graduate of West End High School in Birmingham, AL. While at WEHS, Pastor Hogan was both academically & athletically studious. Upon completion of high school, Pastor Hogan attended the historic Talladega College, where he completed 3 years of studies in education. His own dream was to pursue an Education degree and return home to WEHS to teach & coach sports. During those times, Pastor Hogan answered the voice of the Lord calling him to this Gospel Ministry. In the last years of studies at Talladega College, Pastor Hogan returned home & began preaching under the leadership of Dr. Gregory Clark of the New Hope Baptist Church in West End. One year later Pastor Hogan furthered his leadership training under the pastoral care of Rev. Harold W. Bass at the Olivet Monumental Baptist Church in North Birmingham.

In August of 1997, the Mt. Joy Missionary Baptist Church called Pastor Hogan to be their leader. Under his pastoral care the church grew in all areas. After many life changing challenges at Mt. Joy, Pastor Hogan, directed by the LORD, began the Joyful News Christian Church in August of 2000. Joyful News, also known as J.NC.C., grew rapidly from 10 to 100 members in such a short time. Pastor Hogan's GOD given ability allows him to preach the Word of God with conviction and draw with love and humor, which has blessed many lives and the ministry. Continuing to follow the direction of the LORD, in January of 2001, Pastor Hogan united in membership with the United Christian Church of Gadsden, AL, under the leadership of Apostle Maurice K. (Lady Brenda) Wright. On April 7, 2001, Pastor Hogan united in Holy matrimony with his life long friend, Natassha Lee Washington and they have 3 children: Matthew, Raven, and Andrea. Also, in that same year Pastor Hogan was consecrated and ordained to the Office of Bishop by Apostle Wright, his current pastor.

Pastor Hogan continuously strives to equip people with the tools needed to receive eternal life with the LORD in Heaven. As a result of his dedication and un-wavering efforts, what was a store front ministry has now grown and even relocated to a newer 9000 sq. ft. facility where ministry continues to enhance and expand. With Bishop Hogan, the ministry focuses on BUILDING A MATURE CHURCH FOR A SOON COMING CHRIST.
