On Sunday, January 17, 2010, God moved on the heart of Bishop Glen A. Staples, Presiding Prelate of the Temple of Praise Fellowship of Churches to recognize that he possesses and lives all of the qualifications according to 1 Timothy 3 to be consecrated to the Office of Bishop. Subsequently, on May 15, 2010, he was properly set apart and consecrated to the Office of Bishop by the Temple of Praise Fellowship of Churches.
