About Bishop Dr. Zella Berry Case

The Pastor & Bishop Overseer


Preacher, Bishop Overseer, Apostle, Mentor, Divine Spiritual Advisor, Teacher, Educator, Dean, & Lover of Christ. 

I have been a  preacher of the gospel since 1994, licensed and ordained as a minister of the gospel, (1994), and afterward entered seminary.  (1998)  Studied and developed my calling for more than 20 years through formal accredited education at an accredited school, Apex School of Theology formerly located in Durham, North Carolina, earning degrees in Theology (BTU), 2003, Masters in Christian Education, 2013 & Masters in Divinity, 2016.  Lastly, I  matriculated and earned a Doctor of Ministry, 2019.  Dr. Case also holds an Honorary Doctor Degree in Divinity, (2016).


Married for more than 40 years to her high school sweetheart, Suffragan Bishop Martin W. Case.

Out of that marriage, there was born two children. She has four beautiful granddaughters who she adores and believes that at least one of them will become a preacher of the gospel. She has devoted her life to Kingdom Building and reaching the lost.

May Heaven smile upon us all. Bishop Dr. Zella Berry Case has been involved in ministry since she was 12 years old.  Being raised in a God-fearing home in the Eastern part of North Carolina, she always remembers her roots and introduction while attending different denominational churches to which her parents were affiliated. 

 "They were my beginning for success in ministry and the capturing of the connection of Jesus Christ, which included working in the church."

Doctor of Ministry

     As a Doctor of Ministry, it is my desire to motivate others in obtaining their doctorial degree through inspiring them to reach as far as they can so that they can assist others in developing all that is within them.

"Invest in yourself and the passion that you have to train others using the Word of God as your guidance."

     Becoming a Doctor of Ministry and concentrating on the completion of it although rigorous and was at times stressful, the imaginative theological reflective program, assisted me in understanding my calling in the Five-Fold Ministry even more. Not only that, but capturing and graduating with that degree assisted me in the furtherance of serving others with vigor, vim, and vitality in my current ministerial roles. It is my goal also to respond to the theological and ethical role that one possesses when embarking on the ministry after receiving such a degree of higher learning.

     My dissertation topic was:

ARIZE (Apprehending Rich Illumination and Zeal in the Effectiveness that the Five-Fold Ministry brought to Arches Grove United Church of Christ, Burlington, North Carolina.)
