our pastoral staff

    Elder Littleton has been with the ministry at Zion Christian Assembly from Zion’s conception in July 2003. Elder Littleton counts it a great privilege and an awesome responsibility to help serve in the ministry work of Bishop Polley. He works diligently to be a blessing to God’s people and God’s kingdom with God’s help.

    Elder Littleton is married to his wife, Cathy E. Littleton. They have two daughters, Venise L. Carter & Eboni M. Price, and five grandchildren.


    As the newest member of Zion's pastoral staff, Elder Jo Ann Betton has been engaged with the Sunday School Ministry, serves with the Intercessory Prayer Warriors, and she serves with the Altar Workers Ministry and the Hope and Salvation Prison Ministry team. In addition, she works with Zion's Hospital, Sick & Shut-in Visitation Team.

    Along with her duties at Zion, Pastor Betton is also a member of the Jabez L.I.F.T. Women’s Group, an interfaith organization fellowship who love talking about God’s love. She is also a member of the Devine Breakthrough Spiritual Clinic Ministry Team.

    She is the mother of two daughters, and proud grandmother of three grandsons.

    Her favorite scripture is; "For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago." Eph 2:10 NLT
