The history of a church is a living testimony to God's vision and favor for His people. God's anointing is on this vision and through the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit - IT WILL BE FULFILLED.
This awesome vision started years ago, even before my mother and father conceived me in my mother's womb. God spoke what I would accomplish in this world for His Purpose and His Glory. The office of a Pastor is a noble task. 1 Timothy 3:1 states, "Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer (Pastor), he desires a noble task." (NIV). A Pastor is simply a shepherd called to lead God's people, to love God's people, and to teach God's people how to exemplify His Glory in their lives.
Thus, Grace Christian Fellowship Ministry came into existence. Grace Christian Fellowship Church was started on October 18, 2006 in our home with me (Pastor Harold Stanley), my wife (First Lady Johnetta Stanley), our daughter (Hannah Stanley), and two other core members. It was an humble beginning because I wanted to first teach my family God's Laws and how to apply them to our lives. Once we accomplished that goal, God began to lead others to our weekly Bible Studies held on Saturday evenings. As we continued in God's Word, the heart of this ministry was formed and we moved from Bible Study on Saturday evenings to Sunday Morning Worship Services with ten people in attendance. We now incorporate 150+ strong and dedicated members who share the vision and who are committed to seeing its fulfillment in the world. Although we consider ourselves to yet and still be a young church, we know without a doubt that God is using us to do great things for His kingdom.
To God be the Glory!
