Apostle Rondie Goode and his wife First Lady Jennifer Goode are both natives of Rome, Georgia where they attended Model High School and graduated in 1982. These high school sweethearts were married on June 16, 1984. Apostle Goode joined the Navy in the summer of 1983, where he served for six years. From 1989 to 1993, he was employed in the food services industry where he advanced steadily into management. He entered into the ministry at New Hope Baptist Church as the youth minister and while there, he was called to pastor at Bryant Chapel Baptist Church from 1996 to 2004.
First Lady Jennifer Goode entered into the ministry in August 2001 with a special calling to see women walk in victory and their purpose, as women of God. It is her desire to help all women know that they are “God’s Daughters.” She attended Coosa Valley Technical College and received an Associate degree in Management/Supervisory Development and an Associate of Applied Science in 2008.
In August 2004, Apostle Goode was led to launch the Kingdom Church of Rome, Georgia. However, in May 2005, the Lord expanded the vision and changed the name to Kingdom Church International (KCI). God has placed it in Apostle Goode’s heart to impact Rome, the surrounding counties and the world with the life-changing Gospel of the Kingdom of God, teaching us how to apply the unwavering principles of this Gospel to our everyday lives.
The Joy of Marriage Ministry was launched at Kingdom Church International in 2005 to help prepare singles for marriage and to strengthen the marriages to experience the Joy of Marriage. The Joy of Marriage Consulting was launched in 2017 to reach singles and marriages around the world through technology.
Our revered and honored Apostle and First Lady have been married 32 glorious years. They have 2 children, daughter Jessica (son-in-law Marvin), son Caleb, and two grandsons Josiah and Jordan.
