Bostick Temple Church of God in Christ, formerly known as 23rd & Delmar, in St. Louis, Missouri, celebrated their 100th Church Anniversary in September, 2008.  This festivity commemorated the legacy of Bishop Daniel Bostick who founded this work with his wife, State Supervisor, Mother Lucinda Bostick in 1908. 

Many pastors, bishops, evangelists, missionaries, and other great ministers have been birthed and grown from 23rd & Delmar and Bostick Temple. Bishop Daniel Bostick was one of the first bishops ordained by Bishop Charles Harrison Mason, founder of the Church of God in Christ.



Come and go with us; we will do you good!

Holy Greeting in the Name of our Lord, Jesus Christ

We are pleased to welcome you to our website. If you are searching for a church home, we would like you to know that there is a special place for you at Bostick Temple.

  • A Place for Friendship.  Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian friendship.
  • A Place for Learning.  We believe studying the Bible is vital because it not only instructs us intellectually, but also guides us spiritually.
  • A Place for Service.  Just as Jesus Christ came not to be ministered to, but to minister, we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others.
  • A Place for Worship.  The primary reason we meet together is to focus our attention on God, giving Him our worship and receiving His blessing and inspiration.

Each of these occasions is a special time of spiritual refreshment.  We hope you will be spiritually uplifted as you visit our site, and we certainly hope to see you very soon at Bostick Temple Church of God in Christ.
