In response to an invitation from Pastor Gideon Akinlawon to The Apostolic Church in Nigeria for the first Thanksgiving and formal inauguration of the Assembly in Houston, Texas in November 1991, fourteen (14) delegates attended: including Pastors S.S. Jemigbon, E.O. Arokodare (late), J.O. Olaninwa, J.A. Alalade, E. Isong (late); Deaconesses C. Jemigbon, E.O. Arokodare (late), Apiti (Republic of Benin); Brothers E.G. Bisong, D.P.O. Balogun (both Pastors now); Brother I.O. Olowogbade (now Deacon); Sisters A.O. Akinfenwa, A. Osinowo, and P. Omoniyi.
At the end of the Anniversary in Houston, Texas two (2) delegates, Pastors J.O. Olaninwa and J.A. Alalade traveled to New Jersey for a conference with Pastor E. O. Adeyinka, with a view of incorporating his ministry, “Rock of Ages International Fellowship” into The Apostolic Church body. Pastor Adeyinka had no objection to this union and instantly (1991) adopted The Apostolic Church, USA (TACUSA).
To distinguish our church name from many other churches with similar name, the suffix, “Glorious Vision” which has been the a.k.a. of The Apostolic Church worldwide was adopted; hence, the church is now known as “THE APOSTOLIC CHURCH GLORIOUS VISION, USA”. In December, 2006, the Lord blessed the Church with 116 acres of land in the State of Pennsylvania which shall be used as our International and General Convention Ground.
