Church Leadership

Our team feels a strong call to reach the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ. This passion is what drives each of us to go the extra mile, reach to the unreachable and find ways to serve the otherwise untouched.


Bishop William L. Sciscoe

Bishop William L. Sciscoe joined the Church as Associate Pastor in August of 1991 and assumed the role of Senior Pastor in November of 1992. He was born November 4, 1938, in Bloomington, Indiana. He and his wife, Nancy, have three adult children and seven grandchildren.

Bishop Sciscoe began his ministry in 1962 in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1963, he became a full-time evangelist, traveling across the nation. This continued until 1971, when he began to pastor Bethel Tabernacle in Racine, Wisconsin. In 1986, he became an aide to the General Superintendent of the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI), located in Hazelwood, Missouri. In this capacity, he organized and ministered at conferences nationwide. He has served as a Presbyter of the Ohio District Board of the UPCI since January of 2003, and has also served as the Prayer Commissioner for the UPCI.

After careful consideration and prayer, then-Pastor Sciscoe was elected Bishop by the congregation in the spring of 2011.

While an evangelist, and later as coordinator for ministers’ conferences, Bishop Sciscoe focused on faith, seeing many miracles and conversions. The miracles have included sight restored to blind eyes, deaf ears hearing, and even people being raised from the dead. He has preached all across the United States and Canada, often being called upon to speak to pastors and to give spiritual insight in difficult situations. He has also spoken in Central America, Scandinavia, Africa, and Asia. His ministry has included teachings on faith, leadership training, and seminars on encouraging people to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Senior Pastor William Pellum

Senior Pastor William (Bill) Pellum started out at Pentecostal Assembly (now The Church Triumphant) as a 9-year old Sunday School kid.  Over the years, he grew spiritually under the leadership of our Founder Richard Davis and then our Pastor William Sciscoe (now the Bishop).

After graduating from Bible School in Stockton, California, he returned home and became the Youth Pastor and Outreach Director, which he excelled at for a number of years.  The Lord then called him with his wife, Jane, in 2000 to Circleville to become the Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Christian Church.

After 19 years, the Lord has brought Bill and Jane back to The Church Triumphant where he has been voted in on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 as the Senior Pastor and is maintaining the Senior Pastor role at Cornerstone as well, giving us a sister church in Circleville.

One Vision - Two Locations!

Titus 1:7-9 KJV

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
