He founded and is Senior Pastor of Emmanuel Temple Apostolic Church in Cincinnati. He also is president of Emmanuel Community Outreach Center.
The Bishops Consecra-tion Service for then Bishop-elect Andrew Whaley in October was a solemn and impressive worship service. Dr. Whaley was joined in the processional by his wife, First Lady Dr. Mattie Whaley, along with church ministers, deacons, visiting dignitaries, and Bishop Larry Dempsey, chief consecrator.
Bishop Norman Allen of Detroit, Mich., gave the invocation and other church leaders participated in the consecration service which concluded with the presentation of Bishop Whaley and First Lady Whaley who offered remarks before the processional began and the memorable event was concluded. A Bishop’s reception immediately followed the service.
Bishop Whaley is a member of the class of 1965 of Liberty High School, which was closed some years ago as consolidation with Williamson High School took place. He is the father of nine children.
He attended Grace Apostolic College in Cincinnati and holds a doctorate degree in Divinity.
Bishop Whaley has been described as “a man full of anointing power and boldness in the Lord, yet remains meek and humble before men and God. As pastor, husband, father, teacher and friend, all have found him to be a true man of God.”
He is a member of the W.W. Ministries of Williamson along with Elder Gordon Witcher.
