The Washington State Jurisdiction of the Church of God in Christ is composed of 75 churches and 15 Districts that span approximately a 400 mile radius. In the early 1920's, Mothers Tolliver and Reese pioneered the Jurisdiction through prayer. Brother Tolliver (who later became Bishop L. E. Tolliver) also worked to lay the foundation in Washington and was eventually appointed Overseer of Alaska. Overseer Goodlow was appointed as the first Overseer and Bishop of the State of Washington by our founder, Bishop Charles Harrison Mason.
