         Bishop Donald E. Hall is the youngest son of the late Mr. Benjamin and Glenola Hall. He was born on May 1, 1954 in the city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Bishop Hall attended the local public schools in Winston-Salem and graduated from North Forsyth High School in 1972. He was witnessed to by Elder James A. Leak and on June 24, 1973 he was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ under the administration of Elder Sherman R. Mahan. In August of 1973 he received the baptism of the Holy Ghost speaking in other tongues as the Spirit of God gives the utterance. Bishop Hall was blessed to marry the former Sister Susan Williams in August 1975. Bishop and Sister Hall are the parents of four children (Deborah, Felicia, Paris, and Prince). 
    Bishop Hall worked faithfully as a young brother in the church and held the offices of choir director, Sunday school teacher, Sunday schoolsuperintendent, guitar player, a lead singer, and in 1976 he was ordained as the youngest deacon in the church at that time. In 1979 God called Bishop Hall into the ministry.  He began his pastorate (as an Elder) in 1981 in Princeton, (Raynortown) North Carolina. 
This was a 300 mile round trip, and after 4 months it was decided that he should return to St. Paul Apostolic Church (resident church at the time). The seed of pastorate had been planted in his heart. In 1983 the Lord led Bishop (Elder) Hall to start a church in Thomasville, North Carolina. 
         Today our pastor has been in the pastorate for over 30 years. He has received an earned doctorate in Theology, (Th.D) and likewise he has earned a doctorate degree in religious philosophy (Ph.D).
         Dr. Gary Reckart wrote to Bishop Hall saying, "Greetings Dr. Hall: On December 9, 2002 you enrolled with Apostolic Theological Bible College. Since that time you have earned the Bachelor, Master, and Doctors Degrees. On November 10, 2011 you have finally earned your Degree in Philosophy, Congratulations. May Jesus bless you more and more, Sincerely, Dr. G. Reckart.
